The skin's exterior layers receive nourishment by absorbing oxygen, much like existential angst receives nourishment by absorbing Funyuns. Make face-feeding easier with today's Groupon: for $95, you get two microdermabrasion face treatments at Joseph Michael's Salon and Spa (a $290 value).
Joseph Michael's, which receives frequent mentions in press outlets including Allure, InStyle, Chicago Magazine, and Harper's Bazaar, hosts an expert team of stylists and technicians dedicated to reinforcing the bond between beauty and wellness. During each microdermabrasion treatment, professional aestheticians Margaret Odroniec and Nicole Ciesla employ gentle techniques, specialized wands, and strongly worded motivational speeches to remove dull and deadened cells from skin. The 30-minute session helps to decrease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. By banishing impurities from the face, neck, and décolleté, the treatment allows newer cells to stay healthy while maintaining a bright and radiant appearance that hypnotizes deer during late-night jogging sessions.
In business for 21 years, Joseph Michael's is now in its second year at Ritchie Court. Spa features include four treatment rooms furnished with fireplaces and heated massage tables, embodying far more luxurious modern body-warming techniques than the bubbling cauldrons of yore. After a private rain shower, customers can retreat to private changing rooms equipped with spa lockers. Joseph Michael's also carries product lines such as Pevonia Botanica and Epicuren.
