There's nothing more beautiful than the innocence of a child, unless that child is covered in pie filling. Out beauty-pie-gobbling youth with the help of today's Groupon at Studio V, housed within Akron General Health and Wellness Center West. Choose from the following options:
• For $17, you get an airbrush tanning session (a $35 value).
• For $42.50, you get a Signature V Facial (an $85 value).
• For $55, you get a Green Coffee Body Wrap (a $110 value).
Studio V's dermal authorities burnish worn frames with whole-body treatments and crown human towers with facials that Fox 8 has voted among the Akron-Canton area's Top 5 Best. Wielding airbrushes to create an even, bronzed glow, dexterous hands enrich sallow limbs with tanning solution milked from the sun. At the beginning of each one-hour Signature V Facial, a friendly aesthetician assesses each skinscape's arid plateaus, oily valleys, and perilous blackhead holes. A gentle customized cleansing and exfoliation with enzymes open closed pores to the embrace of a soothing mask, while a shoulders-up massage rouses inner peace from stress-induced hibernation. Slimming green coffee wraps may evict freeloading cellulite by activating metabolic forces and converting retained water into alternative sources of energy like steam or Gatorade. The body and mind relax together while the mask's tincture of proteins, essential oils, and antioxidants reduces dimples and smoothes the skin's texture.
After entering Studio V's brightly lit temple of aesthetic refinement, weary soul-sacks sink into Studio V's comfy chairs, while the Michelangelo-inspired wallpaper transmits sweet Italian nothings via ESP. Busy parents repose guilt-free, as Akron General Lifestyles West offers babysitting hours for children ages six weeks and older ($2.50/hour for members, $4.00/hour for nonmembers).
