Removing the top layer of skin from a face is good for more than just solving every single Scooby-Doo mystery; it can also result in a smoother, healthier face. Exfoliate your way to beauty with today's deal: for $59, you get a microdermabrasion treatment (a $130 value) at Spa Space in the West Loop.
Spa Space has received numerous accolades from Citysearch, and its facial treatments have been commended in InStyle magazine. A microdermabrasion treatment makes faces feel silky smooth and years younger by sloughing off layers of dead skin, similar to peeling open a banana to reveal the creamy mashed potatoes inside. An innovative machine utilizes the power of crystals to comfortably banish out-of-date skin particles to the land of VH1 nostalgia shows, stimulating cell turnover and leaving faces rejuvenated and fashionably fresh. Microdermabrasion is ideal for minimizing acne scars, fine lines, and sun damage. The treatment takes about a half-hour and requires no downtime, leaving ample hours for you to go about daily tasks such as shopping, picking up dry cleaning, and establishing an alibi.
While the outer self is freshened, the luxurious facilities at Spa Space soothe the inner self with bold colors and brightly lit spaces. Spa Space's knowledgeable staff and relaxing atmosphere provide the perfect environment for stress-free escape from all work and Sudoku-related tension.

Spa Space has won multiple Best of Citysearch awards since 2005, including Best Spa in 2005 and 2006. Many local and national publications featured Spa Space. The Chicago Sun-Times and Time Out Chicago mentioned Spa Space. Frommer's very highly recommends the spa and more than 100 Citysearchers and Metromixers give it a near-perfect 4.5-star average:
- Located in the up-and-coming West Loop, this trendy spa offers the latest skin-care treatments in a stylishly modern building that feels like a boutique hotel. The gender-neutral decor and specialized menu of guy-friendly treatments…has given this spa a far larger male clientele than other local spots. – Frommer's
- Both of us had wonderful treatments and left feeling relaxed and renewed. The staff was very friendly and helpful, never making us feel rushed. I give Spa Space top ratings for service across the board! – tpcollins3921, Metromix
Many people think that if they need to get serious work done—a therapeutic massage, microdermabrasion—they have to sacrifice a spa environment for something more clinical. Spa Space defies that notion by offering an extensive menu of results-oriented treatments in a relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere. Their approach has been lauded by many: Lucky magazine called the space "pure bliss," while Allure honored their Pacific Paradise body treatment with one of their coveted Best of Beauty awards.
As one of their signature services, the Pacific Paradise treatment follows with Spa Space's philosophy. Not only is it a 30-minute mango scrub that softens skin and relaxes the body, but it also includes a one-hour massage that reduces tension. Most of their treatments are this way—there's also a pedicure with almond oil to treat dry, itchy skin, and a Sonya Dakar fitness facial with massage to tighten facial muscles. Services are administered with products from brands such as Kiehl's and SkinCeuticals, and clients can arrange to order lunch from Pastoral between services for their hungry bike waiting outside.

“Be on time! I'm sure the woman doing my facial meant well, but she told me she was on a bit of a time crunch when I got there. All that means is that I did't have time to change but had to move immediately to the facial area. Certainly not the worst thing since it was overall a great experience.”
