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 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.
Inside a private treatment room, licensed massage therapist Alexandria consults with clients before administering her signature Swedish, deep-tissue, or Hawaiian lomilomi massages. They talk about the clients' specific issues, from chronic pain to tense muscles. Based on that information, Alexandria customizes a massage that integrates elements from any of these modalities?even specialized techniques, such as craniosacral balancing and prenatal massage.
Dr. John Peterson, a board-certified dermatologist, calls upon more than 40 years of hair-restoration and dermatological experience to help rejuvenate thinning hair with advanced laser technology. Dr. Peterson helps clients achieve verdant head foliage according to his Natural Look Method, which redistributes hair grafts from bounteous head regions to receding hairlines, leaving a thicker, natural-looking head of hair. Dr. Peterson and his staff treat patients at his clinic with the Revage 670 laser, but also provide iGrow systems and hair-restoration products for clients who want to treat themselves at home or while picketing the local toupee shop.
After spending years working in law, Amy Hansen decided to trade in her suits for a pair of stylist's scissors to pursue her passion in cosmetology. She studied hard, earned her license, and in 2006 opened a salon named for the goal she strives to achieve—BellaMe, or "beautiful me." Amy calls on her diverse talents to field an array of custom styling requests, which have ranged from conservative trims to the short and spiky Kate Gosselin look. The salon embodies Amy's outdoorsy spirit with wood accents and sprays of fresh sunflowers that prune themselves at the mirror when the staff isn't looking. The salon is composed of two separate sections—a three-chair styling room and a spa room with a flat-screen TV—that fill the air with energetic, groovy music.
Artwork, cozy furnishings, and elegant wire dress forms dot the French-chateau-style interior of Sachet Salon and Spa, where professional beautifiers revitalize locks, smoothen skin, and sculpt nails. Hair artisans can snip, color, and arm-wrestle each strand of hair until it forms a stylish coif that complements its owner's facial features. Sighs of relaxation fill a private pedicure room where the staff trims nails and sheathes digits in Shellac gel that can last up to 14 days or artful designs using regular polish. The master aestheticians can also render skin as smooth and youthful looking as a just-hatched nesting doll with facials, waxing, and hand-administered spray tans.
