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 The Alchemy of Beauty. Choose from three options:

  • For $35, you get a 30-minute Brazilian wax (up to a $75 value).
  • For $75, you get a 60-minute Chromalift facial (a $150 value).
  • For $75, you get a 60-minute hot-stone massage (a $150 value).

Certified aesthetician Geneva de la Rouge fuses Eastern and European spa techniques to compose soothing, detoxifying services for the body. During the Brazilian wax, de la Rouge wields her training and experience to whisk hair away more effectively than a fleet of fairy-driven bulldozers. During the Chromalift facial, she cleanses and exfoliates using essential oils before swaddling face parchment in a colored clay mask fortified with plant extracts designed to heighten facial circulation. Then she applies gentle vibration while shining a special orange light on the skin, helping to firm facial muscles to achieve a more toned look without the need for surgery or Hollywood–style face transplants. Alternately, customers can relax with the hot-stone massage option, which employs heated river stones and rhythmic Swedish massage techniques to work tension out of stress-laden backs. De la Rouge also employs techniques from deep-tissue modalities, accompanied by a mechanized chiropractic massager to apply focused, effective pressure to musculature that's wound up tighter than a sailor-tied shoelace.

The Alchemy of Beauty

While alchemists never managed to transmute lead into gold, Geneva De la Rouge may be considered a modern alchemist. She uses her knowledge of the aesthetic elements—essential oils, nutrient-rich clay, and other natural ingredients—to transform skin from looking timeworn to youthful. Geneva customizes her elixirs to suit a wide range of skin types, which she differentiates by using the five elements of Chinese medicine as a guide. For each of these elements, such as fire—which is responsible for blotchy red skin—Geneva employs the elemental opposite, balancing dry skin with moisture, sallow skin with nutrients, and irritated skin with a fire extinguisher.
