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 $30, you can choose from one of three facial treatments (a $65 value) at Renaissance Salon & Spa on Great Neck Road in Virginia Beach.
After strolling through the pyramid-crowned gateway at Renaissance Salon & Spa, customers enter another, more elegant era, where pampering stations are strewn amid traditional gold-framed mirrors, columns, fountains, antique chairs, and fresh flowers. There, three potential facials await unscrubbed visages: the first offered is a European seaweed facial bathes mugs in a mask of milk and honey, then scrubs them clean with a nutritious seaweed massage before concluding with another mask, leaving skin radiant, with an aquatic glimmer that combats the bummer effect of undersea predators. Or, dry or sun-damaged flesh feels fresher after a renewal facial, which employs the hydroxy acids of weeds from French oceans to exfoliate and rejuvenate worn-out skin (for best results, a course of six treatments is recommended). Finally, an Asian, honey, and cucumber facial, which combines natural honey with a fresh, vitamin C-rich cucumber mask, battles skin cell zombies while promoting healing and reducing dark spots.
The benefits of a facial from Renaissance Salon & Spa last longer than the decadent experience itself. Because your face is always out in front, the condition of your skin will affect people's impression of your age, hygiene, and likelihood of owning a 1996 Dodge Neon. A sophisticated look is never complete without skin that cascades youthfully across your cheekbones like a silk robe over an Emperor's backside.
Renaissance Salon & Spa
Sunlight streams into Renaissance Salon & Spa from the façade's floor-to-ceiling windows, washing the space's Victorian-inspired mirror frames and sparkling chandeliers in a soft glow. From their stations, stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians spruce up clients' faces and fingers, designing new hairdos, exfoliating visages, and shaping nails into elegant ovals or useable house keys. Longer stays at the soothing confines let clients ease into spa packages that combine up to six pampering services to help melt away the stresses of the day.
