After a two-year rebranding process, The Red Door Salon & Spa ( known as Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa—is now booking massages, oxygen facials, and more.

The spa is still in its home at 919 North Michigan Avenue but has been jazzed up with tiled floors, golden starburst chandeliers, and other luxe touches. A new Red Door at Work program brings manicures, dry pedicures, and other treatments to local offices and boardrooms. And at the spa itself, there are plenty of new services to indulge in.

Staffers point to the Elizabeth Arden PRO Renewal Facial ($160) as the one to book as the seasons—and skin concerns—change. The service is customized to address individual client’s needs and uses ultra-active ingredients to improve elasticity, texture, and clarity. And don’t worry if you dose off under the cozy blankets on the massage table: a clever add-on service is the $35 blow-dry. In addition to spiffing up clients’ hairstyles, the service rids the hair of any latent facial products and massage oils, leaving patrons no worse for the drowsy hour-or-so in the treatment room.
