What You'll Get
When your stomach is unhappy, you get a stomachache, but when your face is unhappy, it drags you around by your tongue and makes your mouth hold a pen to write yourself an angry letter. Keep your face happy with today's Groupon for M. Lekkakos in Wenham (minutes from Beverly and Peabody). Choose from two options:
- For $149, you get a 90-minute signature facial with an osmosis medical peel and eye-brightening treatment (a $360 value).

M. Lekkakos was Boston Magazine's pick for Best Day Spa in 2007 and a Best of North Shore winner in 2009 in the facial category. The facial is a favorite of celebrities such as Alicia Silverstone. The signature facial uses pure marine oxygen, traditional European techniques, and sea-derived products to cleanse and exfoliate the entire face. During the organic, all-natural, non-acid osmosis medical peel, a herd of radiance-enhancing antioxidants, vitamins, enzymes, lipids, and proteins will be rounded up atop face pastures, where they'll repair wayward cells and correct renegade pigmentation, leaving skin as bright and fresh as a newly hatched sun beam. Round out the skinsperience with a rejuvenating eye-brightening treatment that hydrates and tones fine lines, unwanted puffiness, and kangaroo-boxing-related shiners. These treatments are ideal for acne, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and aging skin.
M. Lekkakos, as the salon's name subtly hints, is the beauty-based brain baby that emerged Athena-like from the carefully coiffed cranium of Maria Lekkakos, an internationally experienced and recognized aesthetician and makeup artist who stylishly strutted as Miss Massachusetts in the 2004 Miss USA pageant. M. Lekkakos's beautiful spa environment complements the luxurious services it offers. Whitewashed walls, rich furnishings, and soft, white drapes tumble like an earnest snowfall and absorb the warm, buttery lighting. Candles and a simple wall décor enhance the aesthetic, leaving visitors pleased from the first bat of their eyeballs to the last toss of their manes.
M. Lekkakos was named Best Day Spa in 2007 by Boston Magazine, Best of North Shore in 2010 for facials and the 2010 Beauty Award from Stuff Magazine. Eight Citysearchers give it a 4.5-star average, and Yelpers give it a four-star average.

About M. Lekkakos
Although Maria Lekkakos still possesses the beauty that helped her earn the Miss Massachusetts USA title in 2004, she's far from intimidating—Stuff Magazine calls her "chatty" and "down-to-earth." The outgoing celebrity aesthetician spends her days running a salon and spa that features an ambitious lineup of services. Voted Best Facial of 2010 by Northshore magazine, each facial treatment comes with a skin consultation from a knowledgeable aesthetician, a blend of marine botanicals from Thalgo, and a chorus of "oohs" from wrinkly Ronald Reagan masks. Maria's ability to return skin to glowing youthfulness has drawn attention from Boston Common Magazine_ and a large celebrity clientele that includes Salma Hayek, Leslie Bibb, Rosario Dawson, Brooke Shields and Maria Bello.
