The staff at Terrific Massage & Wellness Spa, invites clients of all ages and conditions into the wellness spa for a tailor-made massage or skin treatment. The licensed massage therapists, utilize light to medium pressure during Swedish massage sessions, designed specifically to alleviate stress and encourage relaxation. Clients suffering from specific, localized pain might be better suited for a deep-tissue session, which might last anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours.

County Line Beauty Salon's technicians have more than 15 years of experience turning unremarkable locks into strikingly colorful and masterfully cut coifs. After clients declare their desired look, stylists snip hairs into place before skillfully deploying blow-dryers to create a lustrous, straightened sheen not unlike that of a freshly ironed snakeskin. Those who choose to top newly cropped coifs with some color can sit back as the salon's stockpile of Redken products power a color conversion that rehues strategically chosen strands to create dynamic partial highlights. A face-framing new cut and blow-dry takes about 45 minutes and highlights usually take an additional hour of chair time. Both treatments can translate into a youthful-looking head, which often translates into a youthful strut and a plethora of compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats. Though not included with this Groupon, full highlights are available for an additional cost.

Licensed aestheticians appease rowdy epidermises with custom facials surrounded by the antique and rustic décor of an intimate spa. Customers uncoil during a 50-minute classic European facial, as a visage diviner mixes up a tailor-made cocktail—calibrated to each skin type—that cleanses, exfoliates, and soothes with gentle wisps of steam. Next, a nourishing mask and moisturizer leave faces as smooth as a seal dressed in a silk bathrobe before firm hands massage necks, shoulders, and scalps, purging facial lymph nodes of harmful toxins. Alternatively, customers can opt for a hydrating/age-defying facial, which lasts up to 75 minutes, to restore dry or dull faces to a youthful sheen. Clinicians coat faces, collagen eye pads, and busts of Abraham Lincoln with a hydrating mask, focusing their smoothing acumen on ironing out fine lines and wrinkles.
At first blush, Millennium Medi Spa seems to suffer from a crisis of identity. On one hand, the med spa relies on the clinical expertise of its physician directors to rejuvenate clients’ skin with advanced treatments. But one can’t help but notice the tranquil, spa-like atmosphere and the profusion of treatments—mani-pedis, massages, hydrating facials—that seem rooted in relaxation more than anything else.
These two personalities converge seamlessly thanks to a staff that splits its focus between results and relaxation. Technicians beautify nails with scrubs, paraffin dips, and glossy coats of polish while aestheticians tighten skin and release toxins with body wraps. Similarly results-based procedures include chemical peels, dermal fillers, and vibradermabrasion treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and barnacles stuck to the face.
