For $13, today's side deal gets you one eyebrow shaping at Union Street Apothecary (a $30 value). This serene, full-service skin sanctuary is located on Polk Street in Nob Hill.
Conceptualized by a chemist and esthetician in response to professional dissatisfaction with his daughters' skin-care products, Union Street Apothecary prides itself on offering top-notch, customized treatments using handcrafted products. Today's side deal gets you one expert eyebrow-shaping session, primarily employing the ancient technique of threading. Threading is a quick and precise method of hair removal most often used to achieve exact and sculpted brow shapes, but well suited for the removal of any stray face squiggle. As it doesn't tug at or irritate the skin with any direct contact, discomfort is minimized and premature crinkling prevented. Because threading is completely natural and uses only a delicate thread that is twisted and pulled to lift follicles from their roots, it is safe for all skin types and sensitivities.
New clients only.
