What You'll Get
Faces act as gatekeepers for incoming food and outgoing laughter, giving them the power to leave our bodies half-starved or bloated with unreleased giggles. Keep your face happy with today's Groupon: for $75, you get an angel face facial, a Dead Sea salt glow body scrub, and a jar of house-made salt scrub (a $155 value) at Helle, a skin sanctuary and salon in Georgetown. City dwellers seeking refuge from life’s constant marching-band ambushes can relax inside Helle's urban oasis while indulging in a variety of skincare, hair, and bodywork services. Let trained aesthetical technicians deep clean and exfoliate faces during a 60-minute angel face facial (a $85 value) before easing temple tension with a soothing pressure-point scalp massage. The Dead Sea salt glow (a $55 value) scrubs away dermis debris from head to toe to tentacle, then seals in relaxation with an aromatic oil application and a cocoon of steamed towels. Afterward, you’ll be able to relive soothing spa days and beach vacations of yesteryear in your very own bathtub with a souvenir jar of house-made salt scrub (a $15 value).
Yelpers give Helle a perfect five-star average:
- Helle has become my sanctuary. I cannot say enough about the fabulous treatment I get there. – Marissa S.
- I decided to give myself a back to school spa day at Helle. I made a reservation for each of the talented staff members and it was a wonderful experience. They guided me through an afternoon where I didn't have to think about anything but how relaxed I felt. – Adrienne D.

A spread of custom spa and salon services foster aesthetic peace in a relaxed, homey setting. Skincare treatments are tailored with Dermalogica's brand of highly customizable products and special salves made in-house to prevent curfew violations. Drawing on Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Western medicine systems, the beauty therapists diagnose conditions such as poor circulation and dehydration, which can inform single treatments or a six-week regime to reset skin function. Paul Mitchell and Awapuhi Ginger products help stylists wrangle unruly halos in an intimate salon room with baroque gold mirrors and pink-on-pink stripes. Each treatment is given a heavenly name to emphasize Helle's good and evil theme, which is echoed in the spa's crimson paint job and matching velvet tufted couch.
