Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro massages and oxygen therapy to spray tanning and luminous facials, as well as Planet Beach's signature take on tantastic UV therapy. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Advanced spa services, such as hydro-derma fusion, sauna time, hydro massage ($40 per session), and luminous facials ($40 per session) provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
Though the bright colors and mod furniture of South Beach Tanning’s numerous salons may tempt clients to kick back for hours, that’s not the staff’s goal. Instead, they strive to provide swift, hassle-free tans that get clients out the door quickly to enjoy the day. Each of the chain’s salons boasts a floor plan that is twice as large as the average tanning salon, which increases the likelihood that a bed will be free and therefore reduces annoying wait times. Guests can choose from five tiers of UV beds, whose successive levels beget increased bulb output and more amenities to imbue swifter, more comfortable tans. For a UV-free glow, customers can opt to hop in the salon’s automated VersaSpa booths, which guide jets of pigmented formula from head to toe in only 46 seconds to grant a look as summery as boat sails composed of stitched-together bikinis.
Derm Aroma's seasoned aestheticians reboot skin back to factory conditions with the soothing ministrations of the salon's rejuvenating facials. The fragrant aromatherapy facial utilizes a massage of custom products blended with essential oils to treat a range of skin woes and boost spirits in a treatment as uplifting as a tour with an inspirational speaker in a hot air balloon. Arid complexions find relief in the moisturizing remedies of the hydrating facial, which coats visages in creams that enhance daily skincare effectiveness while increasing circulation. The cream supplies faces with skin-reviving oxygen that renders demeanors soft and youthful. Under the glow of muted lighting, both spa sessions free patrons of their woes while the soft hum of music gently playing in the spa or in their minds creates a feeling of complete relaxation.
Licensed skincare specialist Nancy Baker draws from 17 years of experience to render epidermal surfaces free of unwanted follicles. Clients lie back in a plush, reclining treatment chair as Nancy gently treats them to Brazilian and eyebrow waxes or skincare treatments. In addition to removing stubborn hair, the master skin technician embellishes bodies with decorative jewel work set in sparkling arrangements such as an elegant lotus flower, a glittery five-pointed star, or the chemical formula for topaz.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Salon Estetica's multitalented staff coaxes inner beauty to the surface of the skin with a menu of facials that employs green-minded Aveda products and practices. The soothing Elemental Nature facial is safe for all skin types and commences with an in-depth skincare analysis and consultation that are used to devise a custom plan to equalize asymmetrical epidermises and balance lopsided auras. A skilled aesthetician then swaddles faces with a solution comprising plant and flower ingredients that work diligently to unclog pores, balance skin tone, infuse moisture, and remove forgotten notes-to-self scrawled on the forehead.
