Beyond Savana Tan’s chic lobby lies a lengthy corridor, where rows of private rooms hum with five levels of tanning beds and innovative sunless-tanning equipment. In one room, a Matrix High-Pressure bed gives skin a glow with its powerful rays, and in another, a UV-free Mystic Tan booth mists bodies with a sunless DHA solution. Beneath shelves of professional lotions and aftercare products from California Tan, Devoted Creations, and RSun, a staff of certified Smart Tan professionals await to facilitate customized airbrush tans and offer tanning tips and free legal advice.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. The warm whirlpool action taking place beneath the cushion of the Hydro-Massage bed relieves stress and muscle tension, leaving bodies as relaxed as a hypnotherapist's pet rock. The infrared heat and nutrient-shrouding steam of the Hydro-Derma Fusion machine sate parched pores and surge skin-collagen production, and fine lines and pigmentation problems flee from the therapeutic light of the Luminous facial, an FDA-approved treatment designed to illuminate skin from within. Tanning beds deliver a sun-kissed pelt, and sun-starved hides jump-start their glow with a spray tan custom-applied by an experienced Norvell airbrush artist or by the friendly nozzles of a Mystic tanning booth. Red-Light Therapy, the newest addition to the Planet Beach family, uses infrared light to deliver therapeutic treatments.
Each of Planet Beach’s machines is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. A staff of helpful spa assistants are always on hand to answer questions, help first-timers use the machines, and keep things safe and comfortable.
All About You Salon's sociable stylists tend to tresses with experienced hands, straightening locks with formaldehyde-free KeraStraight products. During the two- to four-hour treatment, the solution sinks into the hair's internal cortex and sheaths cuticles in a low-pH protein to repair, strengthen, and straighten damaged locks. Nanomolecules of 22-karat gold embedded in the product infuse hair with an extra punch of shine that, like the upcoming holiday season, lasts up to four months. Coifs in any condition, whether chemically treated, dyed, or previously untouched, readily accept the smoothening, and clients can shampoo on the same day of their treatment.
Your hair’s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it—learn why with Groupon’s close-up look at conditioner.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer—the cuticle—is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair—the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
