Nestled in the heart of downtown Birmingham, just a 20-minute drive from downtown Detroit, Margot European Day Spa began as a small, two-room facility founded in 1980. Spanning nearly four decades and three generations of clientele, today the spa is Margot’s full-time passion, boasting 17 treatment rooms and 29 employees and serving both locals and global travelers. Margot has made it her life’s work to offer the very best to her clients.
Inside the upscale Townsend Street spa, you will immediately escape the urban pressure and begin to take in the aromatic scents and warm and friendly staff, whose No. 1 priority is to accommodate your every spa need. The traditional European décor has recently been re-created by Detroit Home award-winning design team Maddalena Design Ltd. and includes a prestigious private event space to gather for corporate retreats, bridal and birthday celebrations, or just a well-deserved gratitude gathering of friends and family.
The spa provides services ranging from detoxifying body wraps, advanced facial treatments, medical grade hydrotherapy, oncology spa services, body massage, lymphatic body and facial treatments to complete nail care. Under the direction of Dr. Wendy McFalda, D.O., such medical spa services as UltraShape Power® fat destruction, Venus Legacy® and Venus Versa treatments, HydraFacial®, Diamond Tome ™ Microdermabrasion and Dermaplaning treatments are offered.
Margot’s Signature skin care line is produced in Troy, Michigan, under her family owned and operated FDA-compliant manufacturing facility, Elba Laboratories. The spa is also very proud to exclusively offer PHYTOMER products and treatments. Over the past 40 years, the PHYTOMER research and development teams have identified the most active marine ingredients and are inventing the skin care of the future. Margot annually revisits the PHYTOMER Labs on the Brittany Coast of France to be updated on the most recent, innovative skin and body products and treatments. Boasting scientific innovation at the highest level, only PHYTOMER products have been physician approved to use in the oncology spa services.
As one of the top estheticians in her native country of Germany, Margot remains passionate about educating both staff and clients. Learning from the spa industry’s leading international educators, she has earned specialized diplomas from France, Germany, Monte Carlo, Great Britain, and Japan. Continuous education is offered to the entire staff each year so they may share the knowledge with clients seeking proper home care regimens.
At Margot’s, the beauty of the mind and body are nurtured to elevate the spirit of well-being. Infusing 21st century techniques with secrets of ancient traditions, Margot and her team can tailor each treatment to an individual’s needs, offering only the finest client experience with pure and visible results.
