A trio of aestheticians helms The Regimen, where they personally pamper clients with an array of treatments while sharing a philosophy of consistency, education, and visible results. The cosmetically savvy triumvirate wields equipment such as DermaSweep, a vacuum pump that gently exfoliates skin, to enhance youthful appearances. Similarly, Endermologie delivers a deep-tissue massage to increase blood flow and boost movement and synchronized dance routines in the lymphatic system. After viewing before-and-after digital photos snapped by the accommodating staff, clients come away from treatments with proof of the effects.
The hour-long clinical facial begins when the skilled aesthetician evaluates your skin's specific needs, asks your skin its likes and dislikes, and then sets up a personalized comprehensive treatment schedule. The vanguard of the head then receives more attention than a toddler taking her first steps on the back of a flaming bear. Your aesthetician will exfoliate rough areas, moisturize, perform extractions on deeply clogged pores, and apply an antibacterial treatment to the skin to keep your appearance shining and blemish-free. Alka's facials are also soothing, relaxing skincare experiences, complete with tranquilizing face and décolleté massages. The clinical facial ends with a customized mask, locking in the rejuvenating effects for both body and mind.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 250 locations blanket 36 states and eight countries?Planet Beach Spa 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. The range of services include total skincare, wellness, weight management, relaxation and renewal treatments. 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.
