The color fuchsia has long been heralded for its therapeutic properties, which is how Barbie still manages to look so good after 51 years of being unable to blink. Reap the youth-restoring power of pink with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of spa services at Fuchsia Spa, located in the Dana Park Shopping Center in Mesa.
Crystal chandeliers, watermelon-and-chocolate-hued walls, and plush suede couches make the interior of this chic spa space look like the long-lost addition to the set of Veronica's Closet. Jump face-first into your spa day with The Hot Date facial, which exfoliates skin to set it aglow for that romantic end-of-night handshake ($75). For full-body spoilment, melt into massage mode with one of Fuschia's many muscle-mending modalities. Nix nefarious knots with a deep-tissue ($75) or hot-stone ($95) massage, then spring back to the spotlight as you enjoy a cold beverage and complimentary cosmetic touch-up. Fuchsia also tends to the needs of tortured toenails ($29–$49), overexposed body bristles ($15–$60), and down-in-the-dumps eyes in need of a quick lift ($25). Each treatment is tailored to fit each customer's unique needs, based on upon a pre-treatment questionnaire and an eye-opening visit with the lobby stage hypnotist.
Beauty junkie Lisa Vukonich and former tomboy Erin Owens are the brainchildren behind this unpretentious pampering playhouse designed to bring decadent treatments to the everyday girl. Before treatment, clients chit-chat in the pink-and-chocolate waiting area, bathed in the glow of an ornate chandelier. Movie mavens can also direct their waiting eyes to the flat-screen TV, which plays such favored chick-flicks as The Princess Bride and Die Hard.

- I have been going there consistently for the past year for my brazilian waxes and have always walked away happy. I've also had a massage and pedicure there, both were great. – Bethany W., Yelp
- 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.
