Due to an inadequate skincare regimen, Abraham Lincoln's complexion on the green five-dollar bill is actually an accurate rendering. Avoid an unhealthy glow with today's Groupon: for $106, you get a holiday spa package at Elle: A Clinical Day Spa (a $265 total value). The spa package includes the following:
- 80-minute essential holiday facial plus microdermabrasion for the face, the neck, and the décolleté (a $175 value)
- Hot-oil scalp massage (a $20 value)
- 50-minute signature relaxation massage (a $70 value)
Elle's seasoned aestheticians revitalize bodies with a slew of services aimed at both beautification and relaxation. During an 80-minute essential holiday facial, aestheticians draw up a personalized map to conquer clients' skin concerns based on skin type and the positioning of scalp lumps. Epidermal journeys proceed through an essential holiday facial cleanse and steam before diamond-tip microdermabrasion safely rejuvenates sensitive areas. A finishing mask and a soothing massage for the face, neck, arms, and hands bring the service to its conclusion, and an accompanying lemongrass hot-oil scalp massage warms the skull, relaxes the body, and approximates the joy plants feel during photosynthesis.
Tense torsos then learn to exhale with a 50-minute relaxation massage, during which a licensed massage practitioner mollifies achy muscles. Light, rhythmic kneads send bodies into deep reveries, and tension and tightness run for other people's less-tended-to backs. Elle also invites Groupon customers to take advantage of a 10% discount on products and a 15% discount on any of its facial or massage body add-ons or its result-enhancing facial add-ons when added to their day of pampering ($10–$60 prior to discount).
Elle · A Clinical Day Spa
When Elle · A Clinical Day Spa first opened in 1997, its therapists specialized exclusively in massage. But soon, they saw that what the average guest needed most was not a standalone massage appointment, but an immersive, multifaceted experience that could undo the stress that bombards them on a daily basis. Owners Leigh Shaw and Polly Tabares, who have experience in the spa industry and the fields of dermatology and plastic surgery, rethought their approach and expanded their services into both traditional spa therapies and med-spa treatments.
Today, Leigh and Polly oversee everything from body wraps and facials to Botox injections and prescription skincare. They also maintain a stash of products for at-home care, stocking lines such as Dermalogica and bareMinerals by Bare Escentuals. For frequent guests, they coordinate VIP memberships that offer perks such as service discounts and massages that harness the rejuvenating power of phoenix tears.
