In the Dark Ages, princesses exfoliated with Fabergé-egg dust and filed fingernails on the edges of gold doubloons. Revel in more modern and luxurious beauty treatments with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $44 for one month of unlimited spa services (a $149 value)
- $32 for one month of unlimited tanning (a $99 value)
Choose between six locations. Spa services vary by location and may include red-light therapy, which can improve skin, Hydro-Derma Fusion, which combines infrared heat and nutrient-dense steam, and dry Hydro-Massage beds, which massage pressure points along the spine.
The unlimited-tan package is valid for both traditional UV tanning and UV-free tans. There’s a $5 additional fee for Mystic Tans, and clients may get only one spray tan per week.
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.
