Save your back and feet at Rescue Spa

Philadelphia is a city bursting with art, food and color. The second largest city on the East Coast and the fifth most populous city in the country, the birthplace of America is also one of the most walkable cities in the United States. Between the Old City to Center City, there are tons of art galleries and museums to check out, plenty of shopping, and gorgeous buildings best viewed out in the clear. What that means, however, is that visitors might feel a little sore after a day of pounding the pavement. Which is a perfect excuse to check out one of Philly’s many raved about day spas! From simple pedis to Swedish massages, facials to make-overs for a special date night, or just a detoxifying and thoroughly relaxing massage for travel-worn and airplane-cramped traveler, there are tons of spas to choose from, particularly in Center City and the Old City.

Save your back and feet at Rescue Spa

Amidst the trendy art galleries and retail shopping of Chestnut and Walnut streets is an airy and lofty urban oasis wherein highly qualified aestheticians dole out what regular Philadelphian spa-goers hail as the best facials in the city. The founder and star facialist, Danuta Mieloch, has a pristine resume that spans over 20 years in her native Poland, Paris, and then New York. A “classic rescue facial” session with her and her hand-picked expert staff begins with an in-depth skin analysis and then a totally customized skin treatment using their natural “manual lift” facial massage technique. Beyond the classic, they offer bio-lift facials, microdermabrasion, a “high performance” facial which integrates all of their treatments, back facials, oxygenating facials, and all the other spa offerings like massages, body treatments, hair removal, makeup and laser. A vast number of their clientele are the types who get Rescued regularly, but any trip to Rescue Spa is sure to be a real treat!

Staff Pick: Shannon’s favorite innovative treatments

Rescue Rittenhouse Spa has all of your skin care needs! Where do I begin? From the Classic Rescue Facial, the amazing Bio-lift, Microdermabrasion, Peels, all the way to high-tech!!  Let me break down some of my favorite innovative treatments.

LED Therapy: LED therapy is a NASA based technology used to grow plants in space. WOW! As far as your skin is concerned LED therapy recharges your skin cells, improves collagen, and reduces sun damage.  In a nut shell, if you’re not an ideal candidate for microdermabrasion, or peels, LED therapy helps to calm your skin. This is a happy treatment for Rescue clients with sensitive skin, rosacea and or acne.  LED light therapy is safe and has no side effects, non-invasive, pain-free and cost effective.

Bio-lift Facial: Sometime last year I ran into a friend and couldn’t help but notice how incredible her skin looked. I honestly thought she had work done! I asked her what she did and she told me it was the Bio-lift facial!  Exclusive to Rescue, Bio-lift is a specialized treatment that uses micro-electric currents to stimulate the muscles of the face and neck. Leaving your skin absolutely radiant!

Trinti Skin Treatment: The Triniti treatment is a perfect trifecta using the most effective technologies in a non-surgical treatment.

  1. First, Foto Facial which improves color correction, age spots, and skin damage.
  2. Second, Refirme – Skin tightening. Wrinkle reduction that targets signs of aging including jowls, neck laxity, and marionette lines.
  3. Third, eMatrix– fractional ablasion that resolves moderate wrinkles and skin texture so skin becomes smoother.

These are just a few of the most innovative techniques offered at Rescue Rittenhouse Spa, we look forward to seeing you soon!




Spring Cleaning

It’s quite obvious that skincare is my passion. I’ve been an esthetician for over 20 years and I love giving facials. My clients get fantastic results through facials with the help of microdermabrasion, electric currents, peels, massage, and lotions & potions. Still there are times when I need to reach for high tech tools that go beyond what these other treatments can do. This season at Rescue we have created our Spring Cleaning Specials that combine the latest laser technologies in skincare to treat various concerns and deliver results.

Springtime is the perfect time to clean up any sunspots or broken capillaries and for these issues we have ‘tried and true’ IPL Foto Facial. In approximately 2-3 sessions you can improve skin texture and discoloration to create a more even complexion.

If you’re struggling with those few unwanted hairs on your face I would encourage you to try our most effective treatment, light based hair removal.

For skin laxity we have a skin tightening treatment called Refirme. 3 sessions will really tighten up your face and neck.

Our most anti-aging, collagen producing, wrinkle reducing, tightening treatment is eMatrix. I can say from personal experience that I’ve performed numerous eMatrix treatments with amazing results. If you’re thinking you need a dramatic pick-me-up that offers long term visible results then this is the service for you. I like to call it a mini facelift!

Hardcore laser devotees love our Triniti Treatment which offers a trio of Refirme, IPL Foto Facial, and eMatrix all in one session. A triple dose of pain but a whole lot of gain… perfect for those who are time crunched and want results instantly, I’m already signed up!

Over the years the most consistent complaints we estheticians hear are, “I hate these brown spots, how can I get rid of them?”, “Oh my God, I’m turning into my grandmother, I have these horrific hairs sprouting from my chin! HELP!!!!!”, “My pores are huge, how can I make them smaller?” “I don’t expect to look twenty-five, I just want to look as good as I can for my age.” For the true skin care devotee, there is a point where the jar, tube or bottle ends and more intensive treatments are required. Fortunately, we possess the latest and greatest technologies in the field of modern cosmetics to address the aforementioned dignities of fathertime……. For pigment irregularities, we perform a service called Fotofacial. This treatment employs both optical light and radio frequency to eradicate those unsightly brown spots and dilated capilllaries. This service can be performed all over the body: face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs. It takes about forty-five minutes and you can expect results almost immediately with little to no downtime. Pore size, skin elasticity, texture and color are all improved by E MATRIX. This technology effectively treats mild to moderate wrinkling, hyperpigmentation, post acne scarring and firms and tones the skin. Energy is applied to the skin in a matrix and the untreated skin around the treated spots accelerate the healing process and amplifies the results. Fall is the perfect time to begin permanent hair removal with sophisticated ELOS technology at Rescue Spa. This unique and innovative technology combines both light and radio frequency to thermally damage the hair follicle. Unlike the antiquated lasers previously used for hair removal, light energy is converted to thermal energy which heats up the hair shaft and follicle. Radio frequency is then attracted to the already preheated follicle, thus intensifying the heat and ultimately destroying it. Both energies are applied in one pulse for a safer, more effective and less painful treatment.

Best to you,
