A smooth face, much like a fresh blanket of snow, boasts a pristine beauty that is almost always immediately ruined when a school bus drives over it. Achieve icy perfection with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a microdermabrasion treatment at iSpa in Astoria (a $125 value).
Amid zen-like black-and-white confines, iSpa's staff pampers clients with a slew of relaxing and beautifying services. The microdermabrasion treatment pairs state-licensed skin specialists with blemish-ameliorating machinery that whisks dead skin cells from the face and into the pillows of goblins. Afterward, the professionally resurfaced face bears fewer blemishes and scars and less-defined fine lines. After a single treatment, mugs also lap up skincare products more effectively and makeup more evenly.
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.
