A weathered face can help one project wisdom or blend in at Mount Rushmore but is otherwise considered undesirable. Stand out from monumental mugs with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a core Dermalogica skin-treatment facial at Brazilian Wax & Spa by Claudia, valid at locations in James Island or North Charleston (a $60 value).
Overseen by licensed aesthetician Claudia, the practiced staff at Brazilian Wax & Spa by Claudia adjusts the 60-minute core Dermalogica skin-treatment facial to suit each client's unique dermal dilemmas. A wash and customized exfoliation swipe dead cells from reposing façades and oust grit and crumpled drier sheets hiding within the pores. If needed, extractions incite a forced eviction of complexion-marring blackheads and blemishes, and a neck and shoulder massage sap tension from strained tissues with becalming strokes and essential oils. A tailored mask and moisturizer finally percolate into parched cheeks to bestow faces with a dewy glow that leaves them looking refreshed and radiant, and renders reading lights obsolete.
Groupon customers can revamp their visages at one of two spas festooned with flowers and blooming artwork. The North Charleston spa welcomes weary faces into a fun, girly, fuchsia-flavored hideaway, and the James Island spa complements its soothing pastel-green lobby with crisp white furnishings, a cozy brick fireplace, and a crystal chandelier than speaks only in hushed whispers.
Brazilian Wax & Spa by Claudia
Claudia's aesthetician training began miles away from Charleston in her native country of Brazil, where she studied Health Education at Anhembi University and worked at spas throughout São Paulo. She brings her firsthand expertise in Brazilian waxing and beauty treatments to each of her five spas, administering a variety of waxing services along with various body treatments, facials, endermologie treatments, and massages. She and her fellow aestheticians also offer threading and sugaring treatments that remove hair without relying on wax. Her passions have driven her to open a network of spas located in North Charleston, James Island, Mt. Pleasant, Summerville, and Columbia.
