The timing couldn’t be better. Fashion week (or month, as the case may be) is over (finally!), and Spa Week is just getting started. The nationwide celebration of beautifying kicks off today, with hundreds of spas offering all manner of treatments at bargain prices. This year, the NYC deals are even more luxurious than usual, with several choice spas participating for the first time (hello, the Spa at Trump Soho). Here, we present ten steals and word-of-mouth specials that run through the 17th. Whether you fancy a skin peel, pore-cleansing facial, or Russian rubdown, you really can’t lose: Unless otherwise noted, all treatments are $50 (yes, you read that right). Call ahead to make an appointment.

Natural Fixings
Euphoria Spa, 18 Harrison St., 2nd Fl., (212) 925-5925, www.euphoriaspanyc.com.

Euphoria’s Deep Tissue Massage With Wonder Rub and Essential Oils delivers 45 minutes of customized kneading to soothe sore muscles and joints with arnica, fennel, juniper, and wintergreen-infused skin salves. A real treat for the body after four weeks of show-going in impractical footwear.

The Results-Driven Facial
Fresh, 57 Spring St., (212) 925-0099, www.fresh.com.

Fresh’s Umbrian Clay Purify and Balance Facial Experience is designed for combination to oily skin and uses Umbrian clay, a proprietary ingredient to Fresh, to neutralize acidity and purify clogged pores. As an added bonus, the cool, sludgy material calms redness and refines skin’s texture. Even better: This deal includes not only the 45-minute treatment, but a free product of your choice as well (score!).

Eastern-Inspired Indulgences
The Spa at Trump Soho, 246 Spring St., (212) 842-5505, www.trumpsohohotel.com.

Any opportunity to marvel at the marble hammam at the recently opened Trump Soho spa is worth taking—especially when it involves a bath and body exfoliation on the cheap. Aestheticians here do their skin sloughing with a traditional kessa mitt before rubbing on an exclusive castile soap to leave your skin silky smooth. A refreshing mist of rosewater and a cup of mint tea are delightful finishing touches.

Beauty Basics for a Bargain
Space NK in Soho, 99 Greene St., (212) 941-4200, www.spacenk.com.

You may know and love Space NK for its well-edited selection of must-haves from top brands, but the beauty emporiums’ waxing services are equally top-notch. This week only, you can groom any zone at 50 percent off the regular price: Brows are now $17.50, the bikini line is $20, and a Brazilian is a very doable $32.50.

The Alternative Therapy Worth Its Salt
Halo Air Salt Rooms, 133 W. 22nd St., (646) 666-0554, www.haloair.com.

The Salt Rooms’ Halotherapy to Help Your Airways or Skin consists of two sessions (50 minutes each at $50 per session) that utilize atomized salt imported from the Ukraine to open up your airways and detox your skin. All you have to do is sit back and let the salt-encrusted walls, floor, and halo generators (which spin more salt through machines) get to work, easing ailments like asthma and allergies.

The Next-Gen Facelift
N.V. Perricone M.D. Lifestyle Flagship, 791 Madison Ave., (212) 734-2537, www.perriconemd.com.

If you swear by Dr. Nicholas V. Perricone’s cosmeceutical skincare line, then you’ll flip for his in-house Electro-Stim Eye Lift service. The antiaging eye treatment features electro-stimulation technology to contour and lift the eye area, giving you a well-rested look instantly. Well worth the $50 price tag.

The Smile Saver
Completely Bare, 25 Bond St., (212) 366-6060, www.completelybare.com.

A white smile is always in fashion no matter the season. Completely Bare’s Teeth Whitening Treatment uses Bleachbright’s LED technology to make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just 20 minutes—which is great news after all that coffee you’ve been swilling over the last few weeks.

The Stimulating Face Firmer
Sally Hershberger Face Place, 425 W. 14th St., 3rd Fl., (212) 367-8200, www.shfaceplace.com.

OK, this one isn’t $50. But at a discounted $110.50, the Face Place treatment offers a high-tech antiaging fix that firms and smooths your complexion with a galvanic current to help ingredients like vitamin C, zinc, and potent antioxidants sink deep into skin tissues. Your skin will thank you for the splurge.

The Top Derm Deal
Dr. Dennis Gross, 105 E. 37th St., (212) 725-4555, www.dgskincare.com.

Dr. Dennis Gross’ Firming Booster Facial with Professional Alpha Beta® Peel is a bona fide multitasker. A synergistic blend of alpha hydroxyl and beta hydroxyl acids banishes dead skin, while a self-heating hyaluronic-acid mask plumps fine lines and wrinkles. The kicker comes in the form of a concentrated “booster” of antioxidants customized to your needs.

The Old-World Wonder
Russian & Turkish Baths, 268 E. 10th St., (212) 505-0665, www.russianturkishbaths.com

The Russian Baths are a local favorite for massages, but we suggest trying our personal favorite, the Scrub Combo with Salt Scrub, Mud Treatment, and Soap Wash. It’s a real no-frills way to slough off dull skin Eastern European-style, with an exfoliating rubdown using sea salts, followed by a slathering of black mud—both imported from the Dead Sea. A lavender, eucalyptus, or peppermint-scented soap soothes your body post-scrub.
