A spa's mission is to relax its clients, just as Santa's mission is to rank the world's chimneys. Sweep up some relaxation with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a $50 gift card to Blue MedSpa's Tenth Street location, valid toward any treatments.
The service menu at Blue MedSpa, named by Condé Nast as one of the Top 55 New Spas in the World in 2005, appeals to both seasoned and sporadic spa-goers, boasting an extensive blend of clinical aesthetic treatments, traditional spa services, and lifestyle-based wellness programs. Those sojourning to the spa—lauded by the likes of USA Today— could opt for a timesaving Blue mini facial ($60) or let massage therapists treat feet with a half-hour reflexology treatment ($45) that kneads podiatric pressure points to activate full-body tension release. Inside the salon, stylists dress strands in a custom conditioning treatment ($25+), restoring moisture to hair abused by the changing seasons or bullying hats.
Blue MedSpa's cubic edifice offsets its stark white exterior with a ribbon of blue stained-glass squares, and a water fixture in the entryway bubbles over into a mini moat that borders the front path. Inside, blue-tinged art accents the treatment rooms' alabaster walls, framing images of cerulean plants or photogenic smurfs.
Blue is everywhere here, from the cerulean-, azure-, and aquamarine-stained windows to the very name of Blue MedSpa. Dr. Landon McLain, medical director of the beauty haven inside the Westin hotel at Bridge Street Town Centre, helms a team of registered nurses, aestheticians, and physicians who focus on restoring youthful appearances. They use advanced equipment such as SmartLipo to reduce the appearance of cellulite, IPL laser machines for photofacials, and six types of dermal fillers to send fine lines scurrying beneath floorboards. Blue also provides traditional salon and spa services with Pureology and Redken products, as well as skincare products from iS Clinical and its own signature line. Regardless of the service, each med-spa staffer takes a holistic approach to treating clients to ensure their beauty goals are accomplished.
