Been crazy busy this holiday season and need to relax? Sole Serenity is the place to do it! It’s a hidden gem and my favorite medi-spa for a facial – but they offer a wide array of other spa services in a SUPER clean, professional and relaxing environment. I would highly recommend spending some time there to unwind during the craziness of the next few weeks – they are even offering holiday specials!



The reason I called Sole Serenity a hidden gem is because you wouldn’t just drive/walk by and see it. It’s tucked away in a medical building on Commerce Rd. Once you arrive at 9640 Commerce Rd #204, Commerce Charter Twp, MI 48382, you pull around the left hand side of the building and will see the main entrance. From there, you take the elevator to level two and make a right and you will see the spa.



Sole Serenity is a medi-spa which means they blend medical technology with traditional relaxation to create an experience that rejuvenates your skin while easing your mind at the same time. Best of both worlds, right? The prices for their basic services (signature facial, mani/pedi, massage) are very reasonable. But there are other services you can add on that are on the pricier side but have incredible results! They offer a wide variety of peels and laser treatments that work wonders – the wonderful estheticians (I recommend Carri) will help you decide what’s best for your skin. They also offer a Sole Sisters membership where you pay $59 per month and choose choose from one of three spa services (facial, mani/pedi or massage) valued from $75-$85, plus 20% off additional services and 10% off products! Click HERE for their full menu of services.


I absolutely LOVE this spa. Not only do they offer amazing spa services in a relaxing and clean environment but the products (SkinCeuticals) they use are incredible and the estheticians are super knowledgeable and get results.Take advantage of their holiday specials and see for yourself!
