Terme ou expression en français : Cellules de dégrisement
This copywriter has me tearing out my hair with plays on words. Maybe I'm tired, or in a silly mood, but all I can think of for this is that broadway song "Grey skies are gonna clear up..." but of course that won't do here.
Any suggestions are more than welcome.

Word play on brightening up grey, ashen face/detoxifying skin of impurities:

Cellules de dégrisement
Le complexe anti-pollution, issu du karité, pour piéger et lutter contre les polluants atmosphériques et certaines substances toxiques (nicotine, chlore…), responsables du vieillissement cutané. Une véritable bouffée d’oxygène pour une peau purifiée qui retrouve tout son éclat !

Traduction en anglais :detox cells
Explication :
As easy as that. A "cellule de dégrisement" is where the police put you to sober up after a hard night out. Strictly speaking this is what is called the "drunk tank". Strictly speaking "detox cell" should be used for drug abusers rather than alcohol abusers, but it appears to be used synonymously with "drunk tank" by some.

Sorry, got trigger happy and push the send button before I'd finished! In the meantime I see that a fellow Prozer has posted up a suggestion.
You need something zappy for your context : I like Bourth's "detox" idea : "clean-up campaign", "come clean",

Cheers!
