Led by board-certified physicians, the staff at Central Ohio Skin Care combats signs of aging with aggressive yet minimally invasive treatments.

Dr. Milroy J. Samuel, founder of Maison De Leumas, combines his expertise in cosmetic surgery and women's health care as he lifts, sculpts, and beautifies bodies.

First Nails and Spa's express manicure tempers time-strapped talons in a trice with gentle cuticle care, a soothing exfoliation with all-natural Qtica sugar scrub, and a professional hand massage with your choice of polish. If your digits are dramatically damaged, or you just like to be pampered, you can use your Groupon instead for $20 toward a more-expensive manicure or pedicure service. The First Class Manicure ($35) tops off the express with a super-hydrating hand mask and heated hand wrap, while the Luxury Manicure ($45) one-ups even that with a paraffin-wax treatment and the top-of-the-line Qtica product, Qtica Black. An express, First Class, or Luxury Pedicure ($35–$65), on the other foot-hand, will help heartbroken toes prove to last summer’s sandals that they're totally over it.
