Usually, an organic pumpkin peel facial by para-medical esthetician Alexis Brown at Pierre and Carlo's salon and spa costs clients a rather hefty $125.

But this week, you can get the full treatment... Or a pedicure... Or several other beauty services for just $50.

Pierre and Carlo's (200 South Broad Street) is one of numerous spas in our area taking part in Spa Week, which begins March 16, 2009, and runs until March 19, 2009.

Alexis Brown of Pierre and Carlo's explains that during spa week local spas offer certain services for $50 so that their regular clients can save money and also with the hope that they'll attract new clients, who will be willing to splurge even more to enjoy the services on a regular basis.

But you can take advantage of spa week specials without committing to additional treatments.

Dora -- whose one-hour organic pumpkin peel facial included several steps meant to cleanse, detoxify and rejuvenate the skin on her face -- definitely enjoyed the pampering -- especially the chocolate mousse mask.

Alexis says stressful economic times are when everyone can use a little pampering. As she asks, "Who wouldn't want an expensive spa treatment for $50?"
