Like magicians' assistants, spa visitors must heed carefully placed mirrors and trust that no one will reveal the secrets of their transformations. Say the magic word with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of spa services at Be Studios.
The aestheticians at Be Studios perform services that renew skin and relax skeleton suits. The spa's facials ($75+ for 60 minutes) employ peels and masks powered by such soothing substances as organic Eminence skin products. Designed to treat skin troubles such as acne and rosacea, the facials also exfoliate the dermascape and attempt to hide the fine lines and "Remember the Maine" tattoos that are indicative of aging. Facials assuage tension by including complimentary neck, shoulder, and foot kneading, and massages ($40 for 30 minutes) can wick away stress more completely by performing deep-tissue surveys. Sessions in an infrared sauna (up to $25 for 30 minutes) seek to improve circulation and relieve pain using the power of invisible light energy. Waxing services for brows ($18) and underarms ($30) leave skin smoother than freshly zambonied silk.
For many people, pampering means spending the day at the spa or napping in a pool full of kittens. For others, it could mean learning new skills in a sexy fitness class. At Be Studios, guests get two out of four. In one glam-blasted room, instructors lead pole-dancing pupils in the sultry arts. Down the hall, spa technicians beautify guests with an array of spa services such as facials for exfoliating dry skin. Either way, the studio aims to outfit women with experiences and accoutrements to help them leave feeling relaxed and empowered, much like a nuclear plant on a cruise ship.
