Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Rescue Spa.
Treat yourself or your sweetheart to a Swedish Massage, Mani & Pedi while enjoying complimentary champagne. Go the extra mile and book a rejuvenating “Winter Getaway”…
No need to book a vacation. In just 3.5 hours you will feel as though you’ve returned from a sunny getaway. To start things off we invite you to relax in the Infrared Sauna for 30 minutes *infrared light waves create heat in the body rather than heating the air like traditional saunas allowing you to stay in longer and sweat more, followed by a full body Scrub + Rub (60 min) *bonus you get to keep the exfoliating Moroccan Hammam Kessa body mitt used during the treatment, Biolift Facial (60 min) *receive samples and a complimentary skincare regimen, and finish with a Mani/Pedi while sipping a hot cup of Kusmi Detox Tea.
Share The Experience:
Enjoy a Relaxing Swedish Massage and meet afterward for a Mani & Pedi while enjoying complimentary champagne.
“For multitaskers, lunchtime treatments can combine work with pleasure. “Sometimes, a group of women will come in for a power lunch and get their manicures or pedicures while having a meeting while they’re here,” said Kim Zimmerman, e-commerce director and public relations manager at Rescue Spa in Center City. “It’s a nice way to de-stress and bond.” It’s also one less thing you have to get done after work, she said.
Depending on the spa and the treatment, prices for shortened services – less than full-hour sessions – range from $25 to $150.
Rescue Spa offered only the classic mini facial as a half-hour service until three years ago, when growing demand forced it to add shortened versions of the mini biolift facial and mini microderm, as well as lunchtime IPL and French IPL treatments.”
Micro Facial – We all know that applying and reapplying sunscreen in the summer is non-negotiable. However, the “summer gunk” that SPF’s leave behind can take a toll on our skin. Enter micro mini. Deep cleans the pores and diminishes fine lines without downtime. Win win!
*Use Dr.Dennis Gross Skincare Medi Spa Peels 1 x a week as maintenance in between facials.
Bioseaweed Gel Nails – All of the pros of gel nails with none of the cons? Yes, please! Perfect to get before your next getaway as it lasts approx 2 weeks. Does NOT contain the 5 notorious chemicals found in traditional gels. Nails are set with LED Light, unlike traditional gel which uses damaging UV rays. You can also look forward to an upgraded and comfortable steam removal!
Brow & Lash Tint – It is just too hot and humid to worry about your makeup. Allow tinting to enhance your features without all the work. Beyond waterproof, your brows and lashes will appear natural yet thicker and more defined for days. *Don’t forget to schedule designer brows for the most enviable arches.
Summer Hair – Frizz. The struggle is real. Maintain your sanity by scheduling an appointment for a Glaze and Blowout. You’ll leave with silky smooth hair that shines and defies humidity. *Calling all balayaged, bottle blondes, platinum, and silver hair…
Davines Silver Alchemy Conditioner is a summer must-have to stave away brassiness.
Use 1 x a week to maintain the perfect color.
Brazilian & Bikini – the best way to get beach ready in an instant!
*Opt for Fur Stubble Cream daily to keep ingrown hairs at bay.
Lift & Sculpt – If you’re searching for a next level bikini body boost, look no further. This whole body treatment stimulates, exfoliates, tones, and firms like no other. *At home we recommend massaging Lotion P50 Corps all over the entire body with Biologique Recherche’s Body Glove, excellent for toning, exfoliation, and stimulation. Follow with a moisturizer such as Crème Reparatrice, which is exceptionally firming.
*Don’t forget to apply sun block on all areas exposed to the sun.
Velashape III – The answer for those looking to tighten up stubborn areas such as the buttocks, thighs, back of arms, and tummy. Results vary but typically can be seen in as little as 3-6 sessions. *Reach for Biologique Recherche’s Creme Anti-C for any areas prone to cellulite.
Latina Beauty Aficionado and Cosmopolitan Chile writer Trini Id visited us in Philadelphia, all the way from Chile! Check out the half page feature on Rescue Spa en espanol.
Para seguir maltratándonos con la Caro nos fuimos directo a nuestra invitación al Rescue Spa. Un muy exclusivo Spa en downtown Philly donde su dueña (Danuta Mieloch, polaca hermosa con más de 20 años en USA) decidió hacer algo bien hecho para todas las mujeres. El spa cuenta con servicios de: manicure, pedicure, faciales, masajes, maquillaje, perfilado de cejas, sauna, duchas de vapor, barra de café y snacks y una boutique con las mejores cremas anti-aging.
Vida Colon, una latina americana con una piel envidiable, nos hizo el tour por las maravillas de todas las marcas de origen francés y suizo que cuenta Rescue. Entre estas destaco Cellcosmet, Valmont y Biologique Recherche (la favorita de la dueña, por lo que tengo muchas expectativas puestas en ella). Cellcosmet es suizo y usa células preservadas para la iluminación y rejuvenecimiento de la piel y Valmont también apunta a la cosmética celular más la utilización de componentes de agua glaciar.
Pero en total Rescue tiene más de 30 marcas exclusivas y muy “high end” que para ser sinceras uno no sabe por donde empezar! Empezamos por lo importante: un perfilado de cejas con la premiada por Vogue Magazine, María Gulraiz . Muy talentosa y apasionada, María nos perfiló las cejas de manera maestra con una pasión que pocas veces he visto. Y si bien estuvo su buen rato en mis cejas (que además tiñó con henna natural para darme un aspecto de más densidad) el resultado fue perfecto!
Mi mamá siempre me ha alejado de esas cejas delgadas casi dibujadas, y María comparte la filosofía que una ceja gruesa y bien perfilada da un aspecto joven y natural. Y para terminar nuestra estadía de casi 3 horas en el spa, nos dimos un sauna exquisito y arropadas en batas blancas nos hicimos la manicure más perfecta que me he hecho en estas tierras. Hoy, a más de 2 semanas de haber ido, aun la tengo en mis manos mientras escribo (un milagro).
Definitivamente la experiencia fue increíble y uno se puede mal acostumbrar con la excelencia de Rescue Spa. Yo lo extraño al menos.
For those that can’t read Spanish here is a (super) rough Google translation:
To follow maltratándonos with Caro we went straight to our invitation to Rescue Spa. A very exclusive Spa in downtown Philly where its owner (Danuta Mieloch, beautiful polish with more than 20 years in USA) decided to do something well done for All the women. The spa features services: manicure, pedicure, facial, massage, makeup, eyebrow shaping, sauna, steam showers, coffee bar and snacks and a boutique with the best anti-aging creams.
Vida Colon, an American Latina with an enviable skin, made the tour of the wonders of all brands of French and Swiss origin that has Rescue. Between these feature Cellcosmet, Valmont and Biologique Recherche (the favorite of the owner, so I have many expectations placed on it). Cellcosmet is Swiss and uses cells preserved for lighting and skin rejuvenation and Valmont also cell targets more cosmetic components using glacier water.
But overall Rescue has more than 30 exclusive brands and very “high end” that be honest you do not know where to start!
We started so important: a shaped eyebrows with awarded by Vogue Magazine, Maria Gulraiz. Very talented and passionate, Maria outlined eyebrows and taught with a passion that I have rarely seen. And while it was his good time in my eyebrows (also dyed with natural henna to give me a look more density) the result was perfect! My mom has always taken me away from those eyebrows thin almost drawn, and Maria shares the philosophy that a thick eyebrow and well profiled gives a youthful and natural appearance.
And to end our stay of almost 3 hours in the spa, we found an exquisite sauna and were clothed in white robes.
We had the most perfect manicure I’ve in these lands. Today, more than 2 weeks have gone even have it in my hands as I write (a miracle).
Definitely the experience was amazing and one can hardly accustom with Rescue excellence Spa. I miss at least.
