Salon Tua Nails & Spa's tranquil environs and accommodating staff help visitors abandon the stresses of the week as they indulge their bodies in relaxing spa treatments. During the 80-minute optimizer facial, an aesthetician daubs faces with a mixed solution of phytobiological actives to tighten skin and improve slumping facial posture better than a pair of cheek crutches. The facial's ingredients also work to strengthen complexions and improve skin tone. Body beautification extends to appendage enders with the cuccio naturale spa manicure and pedicure, which moisturizes skin on the hands and feet with a wrinkle-reducing formula comprised of papaya enzymes and guava nectar anti-oxidants. A callus treatment and scrub then smoothes out rough skin before a mask and lotion hydrates epidermises like a Gatorade bubble bath.
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.
