John de Madeiros Spa/Salon

Everything about Madeiros’s facials is done right, from the back-and-neck massage to the gentle cleansing process that goes on and on. And the things other salons do wrong are blessedly absent, particularly excessive product promotion. The salon also offers a wide range of other services, including haircuts, collagen masks, biosauna massages and reflexology. The $55 facial is expensive but worth it.
