Deluxe facial treatment at Omagi Salon Spa
Omagi offers a special facial that is similar to microdermabrasion but, instead of using a machine, dead skin is gently removed by hand manipulation.

To make the facial even more intensive, an LED treatment is performed.The facial is finished with oxygen drops that deliver much needed oxygen into your skin, leaving it soft and smooth as silk! The price for this facial is $170.

Primp Style Lounge offers a Primp-a-holic package, which includes 20 blowouts for $650. A regular blowout averages $35, so there is a discount for buying in bulk.
