Though inner beauty is important, the fact remains that outer beauty is still often used to determine SAT scores and income-tax rates. Get a leg up on life with today's Groupon to Refresh Day Spa & Salon. Choose from the following three options:
• For $20, you get a whole-body airbrush tanning session (a $45 value).
• For $30, you get a 45-minute Indian head massage (a $60 value).
• For $49, you get a microdermabrasion treatment (a $100 value).
The multitalented aestheticians at Refresh spiff up bodies from head to heel with a full complement of pampering treatments. Patrons can get a turn browning for 30 minutes in the pseudosun with a Refresh airbrush tanning session, which uses nontoxic, glycerin-based ingredients to brown bodies without sun rays or waffle-iron cross-hatching. Tense upper-body regions receive soothing attention during the Indian head massage, a stress-relieving and immunity-boosting 45-minute kneading for the shoulders, neck, face, scalp, and any pate-dwelling pigeons. To transport skin from the complex present to a clearer past, opt for the one-hour, noninvasive microdermabrasion, during which a careful technician sloughs off dead skin cells using a jet of tiny crystals.
Refresh Day Spa
When a guest steps into Refresh Day Spa, the outside world is immediately quieted. Privacy glass in the lobby obscures the actions of passersbys and meditative music lull patrons into a relaxed state. Four treatment rooms encircle the reception area, and inside these rooms massage therapists and aestheticians pamper bodies with naturally derived services. Dermalogica products—which are known to eschew irritants such as alcohol, artificial colours, and tiny tickle monsters—fuel a selection of custom facials and hot stones for massages and body wraps. Down the hall, stylists and nail technicians set to work in a salon equipped with massaging pedicure chairs and a plasma-screen television. Laser hair removal reigns as their most popular service, for which the spa may offer a 20 per cent discount off the price of competitors who use the same equipment.
