Josephine Ramos can't turn back time; however, she can restore a healthy, youthful glow to her clients' skin by concealing the blemishes and signs of aging that gradually appear. In addition to performing facials for virtually all ages and skin types—clearing pores, hydrating the epidermal layers, and applying custom masks—Josephine uses microcurrent technology or microdermabrasion wands to dramatically improve tone and texture. She also boosts her clients' confidence in their looks by applying a natural-looking airbrush tan and by waxing unwanted stubble.
Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
Sarina Skin Spa's dedicated technicians treat visages to a soothing repertoire of facials that bring relief to damaged, aging, and sensitive skin. Based on a one-on-one consultation with the aesthetician, each client can choose from six services, including the wrinkle-erasing firming mask of an anti-aging facial (a $60 value) and the balanced nutrition of organic oat flour in a soothing facial (a $55 value). Like a cartoon locomotive careening towards a wily coyote, each treatment begins with a burst of warm steam, basting face parts in a cloud of comfort as solvents clean out excess dirt from pores and an exfoliate sloughs off dead cells. Next, a gentle massage boosts vital circulation, and a purifying mask and hydrating treatment varnishes visages with a youthful sheen accented by your choice of serenity-inducing aromatherapy oils.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).
