Spas make people feel like royalty without the hassle of shopping for scepters or posing for playing-card portraits. Enjoy regal treatments with this Groupon.
$35 for Three Massages, Three Luminous Facials, and Three Hydro-Derma Fusion Treatments ($351 Value)
The Luminous facials use light therapy to try to diminish the appearance of fine lines and the Hydro-Derma Fusion sessions aim to hydrate the skin. The optional Lumiere advanced skin care product pack (~$25) is not included in this Groupon, and is recommended in addition to the Luminous facial to enhance the facial's effects. The massage options vary by location, and may include a dry aqua massage, a heated hydro massage, or fully customized cyber-relax massage. Click here for a list of valid services at each location.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
