To attain the rosy glow of flushed cheeks, 18th-century ladies often took snowballs to the face, nuzzled fire-ant hills, and bench pressed child princes. Give your complexion a painless glow with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get three microdermabrasion treatments at West Co Salon & Spa in Ballwin.
West Co Salon & Spa transforms frowning frontispieces into charming countenances with a team of skilled aestheticians trained at the International Dermal Institute of Chicago. During each 45-minute microdermabrasion resurfacing, patrons unwind in the soothing spa environment while one of West Co's therapists gently contours the face's mountain ranges with a diamond-tipped wand ($60 per session). This process extracts clingy, dead-skin barnacles while simultaneously vacuuming them away, ensuring they don't return as Clint Eastwood bent on revenge. With a package of three treatments, customers can maintain soft and smooth analog emoticons for weeks, encouraging vibrant young skin cells to grow healthily and pursue their dreams of gracing the cover of Tiger Beat magazine.
As of July 6, 2011, West Co Salon & Spa has moved from its Ballwin location to Chesterfield.
SkinSpa at Salon Escape
To foster healthy, radiant skin, the aestheticians at SkinSpa at Salon Escape rely on the Dermalogica face-mapping system––a unique form of skin analysis that is only available at Dermalogica-authorized facilities. During the 5- to 10-minute procedure, a skin expert examines each of the face's 14 zones inch by inch using both sight and touch, noting each zone's unique characteristics and average rainfall on a prescription sheet. This sheet then serves as a visual guide for both client and staff as they decide on a suitable treatment plan, whether it be an ultracalming facial for irritated or inflamed skin or a photofacial for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Though they spend much of their time focusing on the face, the aestheticians also tend to skin below the neck with custom massages and exfoliating body polishes and can wax away unwanted hair wherever it sprouts.
