The first facial was administered in ancient Greece to Helen of Troy, whose face had grown rough and cracked after using it to launch a thousand ships. Reward hard-working visages with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a deluxe facial package, including a facial (an $89 value), a nonsurgical facelift (a $125 value), and a microdermabrasion (a $75 value), at Hair Body & Soul Studio and Spa in Oakville (a $289 total value).
The certified aestheticians at Hair Body & Soul soothe and smooth skin using tender care and modern equipment. Skin whisperers rejuvenate face-based cells by applying a collagen mask to replenish protein deposits and by using diamond microdermabrasion to shed old tissue, revealing fresh, radiant skin. Epidermis experts administer nonsurgical facelifts with the help of a machine that infuses pores with a skin-bolstering peptide serum, tightening surface terrain without the use of staples or a bench vise. A shoulder, hand, neck, and head massage, meanwhile, banish any vestige of tension. Located in a repurposed house, the spa creates a homey atmosphere with its fireplace, antique furniture, complimentary fresh coffee and herbal teas, and a neighbour kid who regularly stops by to raid the refrigerator.
