Spa Laje pampers bodies with a number of services designed to ease tension, maintain appearance, and soften signs of aging. Finger and toe helmets clean up during the 100-minute spa mani-pedi treatment as a file smoothes rough nail edges and creates round, square, or javelin-like tips, and paint splashes onto polished surfaces. Arms and legs then receive a rubdown, while hands and feet relax under the shelter of a mask. Legs also undergo a good scrubbing to remove any evidence of mud wresting before customers stop in for an astronaut-suit fitting. The 60-minute Masquerade of Radiance facial nourishes and hydrates skin, diminishing signs of aging. Fine lines and wrinkles soften under the treatment, which maintains the skin's optimum balance and restore its youthful appearance to ensure patrons easier admittance into G-rated movies.
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.
