And not a day too soon! No! You say, "What is Spa Week?" I have been participating in Spa Week for at least the last 5 years. Spa Week is an annual event where the top spas in North America offer full-service treatments for just $50. This Spring the dates for Spa Week are April 16 - 22.
I always take full advantage of Spa Week by booking several appointments. There are participating spas in most major cities. There are 15 participating spas in the San Francisco Bay Area. You can get the full scoop at the official website--
My favorite spa in the Bay Area is Body By Melisa. This spa is a special secret among East Bay women. It is located at the top of Piedmont Avenue. Here is a look at the cozy facilities:
|Waiting Area (though, I don't ever really wait!)|
|Treatment room with the Far Infrared Sauna on the left|
|Treatment room over-looking Piedmont|
|The beautiful Melisa (though she does have other aestheticians working at the spa, too)|
So. . . here are the secrets about this spa. Spa Week is actually Spa Month! That is, $50 treatments are offered for the entire month of April. And there is another Spa Month in the Fall, too. But here's the real secret: she can take years off your face in just a few treatments! Shhhh---- yes, it's true, and without invasive treatments or injections. At least, that has been my experience and all of my friends, too. It's truly a great birthday gift for the special girlfriend!
How?! Through SkinBella Particle-free Dermabrasions. Her site says, "The Facial Rejuvenation is a multi-step method, cleansing and prepping the face, neck, and décolleté, with exfoliation and an specially selected enzyme mask and then the Dermosonic® rejuvenating ultrasound treatment. Dermosonic® programmed ultrasound enhances facial skin by directly stimulating new collagen and elastin production. Ultrasound also provides sonophoresis for deep penetration of the Oxygen Botanical™ products utilized in the Facial Rejuvenation, further enhancing their effectiveness." You can learn more here. And this fabulous treatment is only $50 this month! Regularly, it is $135, which is still a bargain if you're in the market for more youthful skin. Did I say the treatment concludes with a relaxing shoulder massage? It does. Beauty and Bliss. What more?
Here's what's more. . . the spa also offers three other $50 treatments for Spa Month: Body Scrub, Massage and Dermosonic Cellulite reduction. I'm booked for the cellulite treatment next week. And I can't wait. I always feel so much slimmer and detoxed afterward. It's a renewal of my commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
So the secret is out. Don't wait to book, because appointments fill up fast during Spa Month. If you call, expect to leave a message and be called back or book online here.
Go in bliss and beauty. . .
