Finding your perfect spa and salon can be a challenge. We’re always running from one appointment to another – one spa for a facial, one for a massage, one for our hair, one for our brows, one for our nails… the list goes on and on. Here at Spa Week, we’re always on the lookout for great salons and spas that can make our lives just a little bit easier. GC Salon and Spa is our favorite one-stop-shop to handle all of your spa and salon needs.

The full service salon and spa, located in the heart of Times Square, provides advanced haircutting and styling services in addition to facials, manicures, massages, and waxing. For the month of July, GC Salon and Spa is offering deals on an aromatherapy massage and microdermabrasion facial treatment. We went to GC Salon and Spa to test them out!

Aromatherapy massages are all about relaxation and finding your inner bliss. During a full-body Swedish massage, essential oils are used to help relax your body and ease your mind. The massage therapist will use long, soothing strokes to help your muscles to relax while the aromatic essential oils help to lull you into a meditative, relaxed state.

During this massage, my body and mind felt soothed and calm. The massage therapist will focus on any areas that you consider problem areas, where you hold a lot of tension and stress. You’ll feel all the tension leave your body– I almost fell asleep during my treatment!

 

Microdermabrasion Facial $75 Originally $125

This 60 minute microdermabrasion facial is designed to refresh and renew your skin, leaving your face smooth, soft, and glowing! The facial begins with a simple cleansing, followed by a microdermabrasion session, designed to exfoliate and gently sand your skin, leaving you with the smoothest layer of skin.

After the microdermabrasion, your esthetician will evaluate your skin and decide how to best treat your concerns. This is usually where extractions come in– not the most fun part of facials, but definitely one of the most important ones.

After your esthetician extracts excess oil and blemishes from clogged pores, she will apply a soothing 24K Gold Mask, designed to heal the skin after extractions and help slow the aging process. You’ll sit back and relax while the mask dries, and then your facial will end with a cleansing and moisturizing treatment.

If you’re looking for a spa and salon where you can spend a few hours on all your beauty needs, look no further. GC Salon and Spa can transform your look from your head to your toes!
