The face is the human body's most expressive part, speaking for us when our tongues are occupied with stamps or busy flirting with our tonsils. Reward your face for its unspoken hard work with today's Groupon: for $35, you get The SKIN facial (a $78 value) at The Skin Spa of Powell on South Liberty Street in Powell.
The Skin Spa's brigade of aestheticians, therapists, technicians, and doctors defend dermises with products and services that cater to each client's specific need. Before each service, one of the spa's expert aestheticians assesses the client's skin and discusses habits, needs, and desires to determine which skin products to use and create a customized treatment. Refurbish your cranial façade with The SKIN facial, a 60- to 75-minute process that includes a cleansing, steam, and two to three different kinds of exfoliation to slough away lifeless cells and old scratch-'n'-sniff stickers. An extraction evacuates squatting blackheads from pores, and a massage loosens muscles strained from trying out facial expressions for innovative new emotions. The treatment also includes a mask, giving faces a bit of privacy before they begin attracting stares from enchanted onlookers. Although today's deal doesn't cover any of The Skin Spa's oncology-related products or services, the spa prides itself on its certification through The Skincare Therapy Center's training for oncology aesthetics.
Soft blue hues inundate the serene spa from its walls to its elegant draperies. Ornate mirrors and wall décor complement the black-and-white furniture that cocoons relaxation-seekers, and calming music spills into treatment rooms that are lighted by candle rather than by baked Alaska.
