Barbie has mastered every career from Ice Capades star to Super Bowl MVP. While you may not be as professionally prolific, you can still indulge your living-doll fantasies by relaxing in a spa named after her trademark hue. Today’s Groupon gets you $100 worth of spa services at Fuchsia, a Mesa hot spot specializing in affordable treatments. Grab your stressiest friends for an megaffordable spa experience.
Crystal chandeliers, watermelon and chocolate-hued walls, and suede couches make the interior of this spa space look like the long-lost addition to the set of Veronica's Closet. Milk your Groupon for every last bit with Fuchsia's fairly priced services that include facials ($39–$150), massages ($39–$95), enhancers ($15–$25), pedicures ($29 or $49), body scrubs and makeup ($20–$75), and hair removal ($15–$60). De-plague your pores with the Fruity Tooty Organic Facial ($75), a treatment using imported organic recipes that smell better than breakfast cereals. First-time fuchsians can try the $49 facial special and still have enough left over for an express massage ($39). Moisturize your mitts with a rejuvenating paraffin wax treatment ($15). Slough off your fuzzies with a full leg wax ($55), or make your feet feel as if they were Russian princes with a fancy foot scrub ($15).
The brainchild of beauty junkie Lisa Vukonich and former tomboy Erin Owns, this unpretentious, magenta-colored pampering playhouse was designed to bring decadent treatments to the everyday girl. Follow the pink brick road to unwind after a long week or to primp for a big event like a wedding or a ping-pong championship.
The media’s painted a pretty picture of Fuchsia with their kind reviews. The spa’s been featured in Yes, SanTan, the Arizona Republic, and Arizona Foot Hills. Fuchsia's also been featured on ABC15 Sonoran Living, Good Morning! Arizona, and Good Evening! Arizona. Fuchsia Day Spa got four stars from Insider Pagers and three stars from Yelpers:
- This place has it all. Atmosphere and they do just about everything! I got a facial which was lovely and given by a technician who really seemed to know what she was doing and talking about. My friend got a massage, and loved it. – jodie w., Insider Pages

Fuchsia lives up to its incandescent name: its hot-pink walls vibrate under shimmering chandeliers. The pink ceiling curves and cuts away to expose industrial chrome pipes reflecting the script of a neon fuchsia Fuchsia sign. Profiled by ABC's The Revolution, Good Morning Arizona, and magazines such as Everyday with Rachael Ray, the spa pampers its guests so thoroughly, it's earned a spot on Gayot's list of Top 10 Value Spas in the world.
Visitors call in or make online appointments to be bundled in body wraps, receive custom facials, or spruce up their nails. Massages take place in private suites where customers can tune into their own iPods, and hair-removal services prep parties for windstorms in velcro factories. The spa also contains a blow-dry bar, a makeup-artistry station, and shelves and racks of boutique apparel, accessories, and skincare products.
