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.

The warm, friendly aestheticians at Natural Alternatives calm and smooth distressed dermises with a gentle, yet stalwart arsenal of plant-derived treatments, including the botanical skin-resurfacing facial, an alternative to microdermabrasion. With little to no irritation and inflammation, this facial bastes skull sheathes in solutions boosted with the powdered mineral tourmaline, resulting in smoother skin texture, decreased pore size, and the luminosity of a freshly scrubbed super nova. Afterwards, blank frontispieces are adorned with the rich, autumnal pigments of Aveda's fall makeup line, concurrently exposing their owners to a bevy of prettifying tips and techniques.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam— including x-rays, photos, and impressions of mouth terrain—paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000–$8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
