A skincare veteran with more than 20 years of experience, Primping Place Spa founder Lisa Mecca-Primps and her staff beautify skin with an array of facials, microdermabrasions, and electrolysis treatments. Faces glow after the gentle HydraFacial microdermabrasion treatment, which buffs away expired skin cells as it adds moisture, nutrients, and crowd-dazzling face-jewels. The treatment phases out fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation for a variety of skin types, extracting pore-squatting impurities along the way. Treat shadowy scars, crow's-feet, or cackling zit-witches with a glycolic peel, which smooths skin villains into submission with a 40% glycolic-acid solution. Though strict with grime, the peel lets clients wear makeup and go on chaperone-free dates immediately following completion. While this Groupon may be used for one glycolic peel, the spa recommends a series of six for optimal results.
Electrolysis treatments help transform hirsute areas—including backs, bikini lines, and spontaneously generating muttonchops—into hairless havens. During the procedure, a skilled quill-zapper inserts sterile gold probes into fuzzy follicles, destroying hair roots with a tiny electrical current. The 15-minute session begins the hair-removal process, but additional visits may be needed to achieve maximum smoothness. Groupon customers should call ahead to make sure Primping Place can de-fuzz their problem areas and to see how many treatments are needed to go from new-puppy fluffy to pet-diamond sleek.
Clients can keep up appearances thanks to the spa's epidermis-enhancing products. Bioelements’ Crucial moisture-emollient cream ($25.20/2.5 oz.) hydrates hides using a Chinese herb-fueled formula, while Dermalogica’s Essential cleansing solution marinates skin in safflower oil, rosemary extract, and a zesty lemon sauce ($26.40/8.4 oz.).
The Primping Place Spa
Owner Lisa Primps and her team of aestheticians, electrologists, and permanent-makeup artists have dedicated the past 21 years to helping clients reach a state of relaxation via treatments that fuse alternative and clinical spa methods. In doing so, they reach for Jan Marini, Dermalogica, and Bioelements skincare products during facials and peels, which can further be enhanced with microdermabrasion and ultrasonic technology. Rather than relying on hypnosis, aestheticians safely subtract unwanted hair from the follicles with traditional waxing or electrolysis, which uses disposable gold probes. Lisa applies her aesthetic knowledge and years of experience—which includes postgraduate work at the International Dermal Institute—during telangiectasia treatments, which gently remove broken capillaries and skin tags from the face and chest.
Just as The Primping Place Spa’s treatments stay ahead of the curve, so does its decor. The reception and treatment room is decorated from floor to ceiling with renewable materials, including Benjamin Moore VOC-free Natura paint, natural-bamboo blinds, and cotton drapes. A series of potted philodendrons help cleanse the air more effectively than washing its mouth out with soap. The Spa also sells Scentsy wickless candles and offers free tastings of weight-loss shakes and cleanses from Isagenix.
