A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all 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 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.
La Mèche Hair is a high end European contemporary styling salon dedicated toward accommodating customers who seek quality, elegance, and harmony in their lives. La Mèche provides a comfortable and soothing atmosphere where customers go to relax and enjoy the company of their stylist and friends.

AfterImage Salon's licensed massage therapist, Kristina Gess, employs a variety of massage modalities to knead away knots and relieve bodies of underlying stress. Long, light strokes and gentle muscle molding make one-hour Swedish massages a soothing experience, helping relieve tension and settle petty arguments between stubborn spines and spineless clavicles. Alternatively, hot-stone treatments use polished, heated stones to infuse the body with warmth. The treatment also takes advantage of a combination of Swedish and deep-tissue massage techniques that manipulate muscle tissues into comfortable compliance.
South Beach is known for its signature art-deco designs, pristine beaches, and energetic nightlife. Taking a cue from that dynamic locale, the staff members of South Beach Tanning Company have decorated their various locations in the spirit of South Beach and pride themselves on their upbeat, lounge-like vibe. Inside each salon, cheery lighting and bright purple, blue, and red walls augment the high-quality equipment and shelves of handpicked lotions, and high ceilings stop newly acquired tans from floating off just-bronzed bodies.
