Dynese M. Hess, a certified acne specialist, massage therapist, and aesthetician, combines her 25 years of experience with medical-grade skincare products to cleanse and clear complexions in customized facial treatments. During a custom Classique Essential facial, Dynese steams, cleanses, and polishes weary mugs before evicting freeloading grime from pores during extractions. While aromatherapy stimulates olfactory glands and nimble fingers knead out shoulder, neck, and décolleté aches, troubled frontispieces soak in the mollifying benefits of a customized facial mask, leaving skin as energized and refreshed as a mug of hot coffee after its morning bath. Alternatively, Dynese reins in out-of-control blemishes with prescription-free, clinical-therapy acne treatments for guests suffering from acne grades I to IV. Dynese will perform a skin analysis and collect intelligence on backgrounds, lifestyles, and espionage agents in order to apply the appropriate treatment and to propose a home-care regimen.
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. 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 the Smart Tan–certified Tanners Paradise, trained technicians help clients achieve golden skin in their tanning beds and spray-tan booths. Beds from Voyager, 32 Express, and Focus encapsulate tanners in UV light in order to build a natural-looking tan. Accelerators from such brands as Designer Skin and Luminary boost the effectiveness of tanning, while infusing skin with nutrients and moisture. Meanwhile, MagicTan booths spray an aloe- and DHA-infused solution from 40 nozzles, evenly bronzing skin without UV rays or industrial-smelling varnish.
Professional aestheticians Lindsey and Chris each arrived at Blush Beauty Spa and Brow Bar from different directions. Lindsey's history with severe acne?and a lack of empathy from her cosmetologists?inspired her journey. Chriss, meanwhile, sees the human body as a canvas that he can make more beautiful, which aligns with his lifelong passion for the arts. Their separate approaches combine to create a chic and inclusive spa and salon. Services include body and facial waxing, skincare and peels, and makeup and lashes. Check out their beauty tips for a helpful guide to DIY beauty care.
Skin savant Suman Prasad at Suman's Facial & Body Sculpting revivifies faces with laser-free treatments that ease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with no downtime. Microcurrent facial treatments begin with an application of products designed to increase effectiveness and help to reduce the appearance of pores, dark circles beneath the eyes, light scarring, and residual leopard spots. Small metal wands then traverse the face, the chin, and the neck, emitting mild microcurrents through specific acupuncture points. The currents penetrate the skin, stimulating collagen production and increasing circulation, which helps to temporarily tighten sagging features and banish blemishes. The treatment's lack of downtime ensures that façades can face the world or return to practicing fish lips in front of the mirror without delay. Many clients notice changes in appearance immediately, but multiple treatments are recommended for best results.
