On Ridge Avenue’s merchant strip in East Falls, Koco Nail Salon and Wax Studio infuses a bit of whimsy into the usual salon setup. Manicures are given clever names such as the Limoncello, which features a citrus scrub, and the Koco Truffle, with a chocolate scrub and a paraffin treatment. For the pedicure called the Arnold Palmer, geared toward athletes, the lucky recipient gets a green tea and lemon footbath and a brown-sugar scrub. There are numerous options to get your nails bedazzled – Swarovski crystals, anyone? – though less flashy treatments might include facials. This friendly spot, with its clean white space accented by greens and browns, even offers an array of waxing choices from eyebrows to Brazilians.

Jardin Medical Spa springs several spa services on Philadelphia's faces, but only two have been set aside for Groupon users. The chemical peel efficiently and effectively treats skin that's been damaged by the harsh winter sun, unevenly pigmented, unfairly wrinkled, or unwisely replaced with a hologram. The spa's sugarcane-based glycolic peel improves texture and tone, adding a healthier look to faces while helping reduce future aging agitators such as age spots or faded pigmentation. At 15 minutes, the chemical peel is also one of the fastest cosmetic procedures available, topped only by a goblet of vitriol tossed in the face by a spiteful Victorian mistress.
With his long list of degrees, certifications, and hospital affiliations, Dr. Mark P. Solomon—who has been featured as an expert source in such publications as the Philadelphia Inquirer—sets any client who may be intimidated by cosmetic surgery at ease. Dr. Solomon harnesses his two decades of expertise to enhance appearances with a wide range of procedures, including liposuction, face lifts, and Botox. He also oversees a staff of medical aestheticians who perform noninvasive treatments, such as chemical peels and laser hair removal, which blasts unwanted hair with laser-tag guns.
The goals of Chez Raina Salon's experienced staff are to build strong relationships with clients and provide them with exceptional beauty services. Inside the highly sanitized salon space, nail technicians doll up digits with mani-pedis and paraffin treatments. Stylists consult with their clients before cutting and highlighting manes to create whole new hairdos. The staff's aestheticians use waxing services and facials to soften the skin until it's smoother than Boyz II Men lounging in a pool of baby oil.
