Allure Salon's body-bronzing specialists paint skin canvases with a sun-smooched hue. Tanners receive an effulgent epidermis in 15 minutes as the Fake Bake airbrush tanning sweeps across the skin, splattering it with a UV-free, no-streak tan. The skin-brightening serum infuses bone cages with naturally derived tanning agents DHA and erythrulose without clogging pores or irritating skin. Bronzers leave with a natural-looking tan that dries in 2–3 minutes and lasts up to one week, or about the time it takes to cartwheel the length of a marathon. The skin-savvy professionals recommend showering and exfoliating before the visit and moisturizing with a recommended product twice a day afterwards.
The beauty-enhancing engineers at Lazersmooth administer treatments performed in an understanding and professional environment. Using intense-pulsed light, the follicle-purging technician focuses the pulsing beams on the body part sporting unwanted hair—choose from the underarms (a $507 value), lip and chin (a $507 value), front or back of the neck (a $507 value), sideburns (a $297 value), abs (a $687 value), or classic bikini line (a $747 value). Producing a slight sensation of discomfort akin to being snapped by a rubber band, the laser quickly disables the hair-producing cells within each follicle, transforming them into unproductive couch potatoes. Treatments take place over the course of several weeks, enabling a more complete ousting of rogue hairs, and two separate Groupons can target two different hairy areas. Lazersmooth recommends a series of six treatments total for most effective hair removal, though a consultation with an aesthetician before treatment can determine the ideal body-frond-blasting plan.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. Sun-starved hides can jump-start their glow with a round of level-one Mystic spray tanning. Employing MagneTan technology, Mystic’s mist adheres to the skin-suit evenly and streaklessly using the body's natural magnetic properties and innate force fields, leaving it bronzed and beautiful for five to seven days. Afterward, whisk newly bronzed bods to a CyberRelax message chair for a luminous facial, which bathes skin in LED therapy. Working in conjunction with topical skincare serums, the facial helps reduce fine lines and evidence of solar foul play, while promoting even skin texture and tone.
Simply Beautiful Med-Spa’s staff uses modern medical treatments and products from Dermalogica and Obagi skincare to impart beautiful, clean skin for its clients. Like a tap of the remote control with one’s nose, dermal fillers restore volume, also filling and lifting areas around the mouth and between the brows. Facial treatments restore skin with gentle exfoliation, deep pore cleansing, and custom masks. Another pillar of the spa’s treatment syllabus is the removal of unwanted hair through facial waxing and the use of lasers.

The minimalistic design at Salon JB—think cream-hued ceiling, walls, and flooring surrounding a single line of modern black salon chairs—allows the stylists’ hair creations to really stand out. They cut hair into sleek bobs or face-framing layers. Their stash of hair dye adds golden highlights to manes or camouflages locks before camping trips. They also straighten frizzy hair and add instant length with extensions.
