Knotted muscles slacken under flowing Swedish strokes and indulgent add-ons such as hot stones and essential oils. Guests can also solicit a massage therapist for a specialty couples massage, ideal for married couples on an anniversary or superheroes and villains seeking to let bygones by bygones.
The friendly, helpful staff at The Skin Spa rely on Star Trekkable equipment for all their aesthetic skin treatments. Laser hair-removal uses pinpointed light to infiltrate your flesh-fortress and sear the dark pigment of the hair follicle at its root—destroying it completely. As you relax in the warmly lit environment of the Newnan Dermatology clinic, which keeps a board-certified nurse practitioner on-site, The Skin Spa's crew will meticulously deforest hirsute areas such as the abdomen ($225), the Brazilian bikini line ($300), or the underarms ($100). Men, meanwhile, can target back hair ($375) and beard fuzz ($175), though not the impure thoughts that cause them. Because hair grows in cycles and long-lasting hair loss often takes up to full six sessions, you can purchase two of today's Groupon.

Posh Salon and Spa’s staff of beauty specialists fuse their respective expertise in hair, nails, massage, and skincare to grant clients with all-encompassing image enhancement. In the nail area, visitors melt into black pedicure thrones as nail technicians enhance natural mani-pedi treatments with exfoliating foot scrubs and hot towels. Meanwhile, aestheticians unearth glowing skin with five types of facials and higher-tech amenities, such as microdermabrasion and Endermologie cellulite-reduction treatments. Bright sunlight streams in from the salon's floor-to-ceiling windows, illuminating stylists as they twirl tendrils into elegant updos, highlight strands to create more depth, and add length with hair extensions and fast-forward buttons.
With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.

An instructor with personal training experience or official Zumba certifications oversees each sessions, providing expert advice and motivation to students of all ability levels. If muscles are sore after a class, students can unwind in the soothing embrace of a thermal body wrap. In addition to promoting healthy insides, Fitness Spa also values healthy-looking outsides; the spa's own organic spray tan solution helps show off newly toned limbs.
