Faces are constantly at work, tirelessly helping you to make good impressions and risking everything to avoid imitating the person in the mirror. Reward your face for its efforts with today's Groupon: for $99, you get three 60-minute custom facials at Millennium Park Medical Spa (a $210 value).
The licensed aestheticians at Millennium Park Medical Spa cook up custom facials with botanical Yon-Ka products. After evaluating the client's skin to determine its needs and set up treatment protocols, the aestheticians begin the facial with a deep cleanse, followed by a steaming and extractions to clarify pores of impurities if necessary. Gentle exfoliation stimulates collagen production as it sloughs off dead skin cells, making skin as taut and smooth as a trampoline covered in lotion. Also co-starring in the treatment are a facial massage, which stimulates circulation, and a custom moisturizing mask, which drenches skin with nutrients.
Yon-Ka's fruit and plant extracts contain antioxidants that help to curb the signs of aging and marine ingredients to exfoliate dead skin and purify oily faces. Essential oils replenish moisture in skin cells even as they remind nostrils of lavender, sandalwood, or the smell of getting lost in an apothecary.
Millennium Park Massage
Located steps away from the expansive lakefront park that shares its name, Millennium Park Massage is a similar oasis from Chicago's bustling downtown. Inside, Michael Moran—a graduate of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine—draws from Swedish, myofascial release, Thai, and Tui na massage modalities to help clients relax amid the stress of constantly directing tourists to the nearest sidewalk. Also an herbalist and acupuncturist, Michael draws from the tenets of traditional Chinese medicine to pave a thoughtful and well-rounded road to relief and wellness.
