What if you could go on vacation, and get a tan so profound they would name a shade of 'golden' in your honor -- in the middle of winter, no less -- and skip the part with skin damage and wrinkles? If you're interested, Pueblo Bonito in Los Cabos, Mexico will address the vacation part, and their Thermage spa treatments will attend to your skin.
Thermage -- or radiothermoplasty for you Gray's Anatomy types -- delivers radiofrequency waves to the collagen-producing level of the skin. Collagen, remember, is the stuff that Angelina Jolie has made famous and her synthetically-inclined colleagues have made infamous. The non-invasive procedure's radio waves are meant to make the skin's natural collagen contract and tighten, as well as spur the production of new collagen and its remarkable ability to fill and plump. Voila, wrinkles are no more.
Pueblo Bonito has partnered with the Raquel Sarfati Medical Spa to offer the treatments at all four Pueblo's locations, but only be for a limited time: from December 15, 2009 to January 9, 2010, at Pueblo's award-winning Sunset Beach Spa. They'll even give you a free consultation so you can find out if thermage is the ace you want up your sleeve. Even so, thermage isn't exactly inexpensive, but you didn't expect the phrase "supple bronze goddess" to be, did you?
If nothing else, there's still that mesmerizing tan in the middle of winter for you to work on. You'll get no help with that, but we're sure you and the peninsular sun can work something out between yourselves.
