A facial is the best way to express gratitude to your visage without splurging on diamond-infused lipstick or drawing hearts all over your cheeks with permanent marker. Shower façades with love with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a one-hour Dermalogica facial and a 15-minute oxygen-bar session at Sun Spa in Lakewood (a $90 value).
The licensed aestheticians at Sun Spa help to boost energy and soothe frayed faces with breaths of 90% oxygen and a slew of Dermalogica skincare products. During the multi-step facial, epidermal experts cleanse skin, then slough away dead cells with an exfoliant to create a more uniform surface texture and chase away foreign matter such as the French army. Then, skilled fingers pry out blackheads and massage facial muscles before a facial mask, followed by toners and protective creams, nourishes the skin to cultivate a clear, well-hydrated frontispiece.
In addition, a 15-minute session at the oxygen bar gives extra-terrestrial clients a much-needed break from Earth's nitrogen-heavy atmosphere. Patrons inhale a blast of scented 90% oxygen through long, thin tubes controlled by an able bartender-technician, helping to boost energy, mental acuity, and sympathy for deep-sea divers.
When improving your skin's appearance, health is more important than color. That's why Sun Spa pairs its arsenal of UV and spray-tan equipment with a trove of professional skincare services. For each of the facials she performs, master aesthetician Rachel Ostrowski relies on Dermalogica products, which cast off irritating ingredients such as fragrances, mineral oils, and airplane jokes in favor of time-honored elements designed to nourish the skin. The skin specialist also excels at performing eyelash perms and hair-removal services, which call on hypoallergenic Cirepil wax and strip-free hard wax to swiftly and gently banish fuzz from anywhere on the body. Nail services are also available, ranging from a traditional mani-pedi, to shallac or 3D design treatments. For guests that want to transform themselves with a fresh look, Sun Spa offers haircut, highlight, and styling services from professional stylists.
Of course, Sun Spa doesn't skimp on the tanning side of the business, either. Sun-shy skins change hues inside the VersaSpa booth, which finds a loophole in the sun's ironfisted patent laws by evenly dusting skin in a customizable spray solution that generates natural-looking tans. The Future Sun II high-pressure hybrid bed helps clients maintain their cool as they soak up tanning rays with a built-in air conditioner and air purifier, and the StarPower 548’s speaker system floods eardrums with their favorite tunes as bulbs flood skin with 8,500 watts of hue-shifting power. Visitors already happy with their complexions can instead indulge in Sun Spa's variety of soothing massage therapies or slip into an infrared body wrap that battles cellulite and slims physiques.
