Though the sun provides man with the energy essential to life and the light essential to shadow-puppet theater, it can also be destructive— ravaging youthful skin and undermining rain dances. Reverse the spoilage of the sun with today's Groupon to I Spa, in Astoria. Choose from the following options:
- For $10, you get a bikini wax (a $20 value).

Amid hip black-and-white décor accented by florid hanging lamps, I Spa fuses ancient philosophies with cutting-edge technology to wield a wealth of nail, skin, massage, and waxing services. Bikini lines are straightened out and trespassing hairs shown to the door with the bikin wax, while facial furrows can be buffed and burnished during the microdermabrasion facial, which banishes stale skin layers to smooth faces and make for easier application of skin products, makeup, and drawn-on mustaches.
I Spa's image experts free faces from discouraging dryness with a collagen super-hydrating facial, and the anticellulite treatment helps to draw out excess water, unwanted toxins, and excess fat cells to create sleek, smooth skin and resurface ruts in bumpy body-roads.
Three Yelpers give I Spa an average of 3.5 stars:
Crisp black-and-white furnishings provide an elegant backdrop to flourishing plants and twinkling tea lights by which iSpa's staff pampers clients with custom services. Massage therapists apply palms and fists to knotted muscles, practicing Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology techniques to work out muscular Rubik's cubes. In dimly lit facial rooms, aestheticians exfoliate skin and then infuse it with vitamin-rich plant extracts and Dermalogica products. A laser room houses high-tech gadgets that remove hair and rejuvenate skin, and a spacious mani-pedi studio plays host to overstuffed pedicure chairs and manicure kiosks.
