Rescue Rittenhouse Spa is thrilled to introduce Threading by technician Maria Gulraiz. Maria is a threading expert who uses her skill to remove unwanted facial hair and sculpt eyebrows into a clean, flattering shape for your face.
If you are not familiar threading is an ancient method of hair removal, a very delicate procedure, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin. The art of threading may be seen in the gentle and precise twisting of cotton thread which is moved and twisted along the hairs, it is with this motion that the thread traps the hair and lifts it out of the follicle. Threading is often more effective and less painful than tweezing or waxing; hair re-growth becomes finer and more sparse after regular treatments and the top layers of skin are not peeled or traumatized in the process. It is an excellent option for those who use Retinols or are allergic to wax.
If you have inquiries about this service or would like to schedule an appointment with Maria please feel free to call our spa concierge at 215.772.2766 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

RapidLash is effective, affordable, safe (safer than Latisse!), and it doesn’t change the color of the pupil. I haven’t experienced any kind of irritation or discomfort while using this product. It’s a $50 solution you can use on both your eyelashes and brows and it’s so easy to incorporate into your nightly routine. I’ve been using this product for a week and I’m already noticing a difference! My lashes are longer, and the lash line even appears fuller.
Awaken your senses and give yourself the ultimate home spa experience, leaving your skin silky smooth with a lingering scent that will stay with you long after your shower is over.

Around this time of year in a desperate effort to stay warm (if only in my mind) I begin to live vicariously. I live through my clients who come in for their Brazilian waxes in preparation for cruises. I live through anyone who is attending the Golden Globes or Oscars because it’s warmer in Cali than it is in Philly and the after parties are fabulous. And I live through my brides who are leaving for their honeymoons to beach locales like Bali or Tanzania. I find that burning fabulous scents at home helps a lot in creating a sensual winter resistant environment. I have always loved Rescue’s signature candle which is slightly exotic and smells like Japanese quince. Another favorite is the Nest line. Their scents are soft, very subtle and won’t jar the olfactory of your fiancé.
Don’t say no one told you; the “Running of the Brides” is almost officially upon us. This world famous bridal event, (which is not for the faint hearted), takes place at Filenes Basement in NYC on February 18. Recessionista brides-to-be will love this wacky crazy way to get a deeply discounted designer gown. Visit www.Filenesbasement.com for more information.
Speaking of waxing, my brides need to know that two weeks out from the wedding is not the best time to decide to get extreme waxing done. I highly recommend having your waxing done incrementally. It’s much less painful and easier on your “area”. As you plan your regimen to whip your skin into shape you can also strategize your waxing schedule with your esthetician to ensure that you can jump off the deck of that over-water villa in your skimpiest thong.
Just imagine, you and your man sitting snuggled up in luxurious robes on a cushy sofa with
champagne. Valentine’s Day is coming and a visit to Rescue Rittenhouse Spa makes the best date possible. If you’ve been having blackhead sightings on his nose, but refuse to let him use your Biologique Recherche P50 lotion now is a good time to get him into the spa. I’ll see you both soon.
If you are looking for a high powered anti-aging serum that boosts the efficiency of your skin’s vital functions then look no further. The anti-wrinkle action of the Prime B Cellular serum helps protect the tone and elasticity of the skin. It significantly improves skin texture and suppleness. I prefer to follow up with Prime Regenera I. It’s also great for guy’s post shaving with it’s anti-inflammatory qualities. Pick up your Prime B today, use morning and night!
With all the innovations for your face your hands are the culprits that will give away your age. Just like your face, your hands need care and protection. No worries, there are a couple of simple steps you can take to help maintain the youthful appearance of those over worked phalanges.
Exfoliating at least 2-3 times a week is a great way to remove dead skin and let a new radiant layer shine through. One of my favorite exfoliators is the One Minute Manicure. It has over 7 different oils combined with dead sea salt which makes for one effective yet gentle & hydrating exfoliant.
The care starts with exfoliation then continues with moisturizing. Carrying a portable bottle of hand cream with you is essential. Since you’re always using your hands they dry out relatively quickly. Also, being good about hydrating them will aid with dry cuticles and brittle nails. If you don’t have a favorite hand cream already, I’d suggest Deborah Lippmann’s Rich Girl Anti-Aging Hand & Cuticle Cream with SPF 25. Its always nice to have a moisturizer with SPF because not only does it hydrate it also protects you from skin damaging sun rays.
And last of all, you should always wear gloves when you step outside. Even if its for just a minute, because frigid air really takes a toll on your hands.
Pretty simple, right? Exfoliate, moisturize & protect three painless routines to keep your hands as ageless as your face.
