A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach 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 Retreat secludes patrons in a soothing atmosphere accented with earthy tones, tranquil water features, and sleek slate tiles for relaxing and beautifying services. During the microdermabrasion treatment, guests settle back as an experienced aesthetician blasts interloping layers from the skin’s surface using a targeted jet of fine micronized crystals, creating a clearer complexion and a softer exfoliation than rubbing faces with soccer cleats. This gentle treatment is known to effectively minimize the appearance of brown spots, fine lines, and light scarring. Afterward, a revitalizing facial enhances smile canvases by flushing dirt, oil, and microscopic sand castles from pores.
With more than 25 years in the medical field, Dr. Pamela J. Stuart has focused her attention for the past 10 years on rejuvenating complexions with noninvasive treatments at Physician’s Skin Solutions.

In addition, all nonsurgical procedures, including dermal fillers, laser hair removal, and radio-frequency skin-tightening treatments, are performed by the skilled doctor. And to further foster healthy glows, Dr. Stuart and her team are armed with advanced skincare products from brands including Obagi and SkinMedica. They also stay up-to-date on the latest beauty treatments, such as age-reversing Allumera topical cream.
We are more than your typical medical spa. Youth is more than the beautiful physical appearance that cosmetic treatments such as Botox®, Juvederm®, and laser provide. Physical health is the cornerstone of youth. Our consultative staff of physicians and surgeons are board certified and remain on the cutting edge of knowledge
In addition to skin-care treatments such as Botox and services with the Obagi Skin product line, Calvine Urgent Care is open 365 days a year to usher in a flurry of ailing patients so that the board-certified doctors and nurse practitioners can work their medical magic on non-life-threatening symptoms, from fevers to broken arms. Neutral-toned chairs and a flat-screen TV distract patients before Calvine's friendly team fixes them up with medical equipment, including x-rays, ultrasounds, and a full range of diagnostic tests for drugs, pregnancy, or hemoglobin. In case patients cross into more serious medical territory, the clinic's fully loaded procedure rooms come filled with intubation kits, EKGs, crash carts, and defibrillators for restarting hearts and toasting marshmallows. The office's staff helps urgent medical patients by taking them within 30 minutes of their arrival, as well as offering ZipPass, an online appointment scheduler.
At AZ Dental, a team of six dentists accomplish cosmetic, general, and surgical procedures with an emphasis on patient health and comfort. To keep their guests comfortable, the dental team seats them in massage chairs for procedures such as gentle root canals. They also let patients watch movies on demand to help take their minds off a filling or an elaborate bone-grafting treatment, which increases height and width of the jawbone to fill in empty spaces or correct abnormalities. Backed by a compassionate and courteous staff, the dentists work to completely subtract stress from the entire visit, whether it's for a tooth whitening or a routine checkup. The office features wood accents and hallway sconces, just like the tree forts of most robber barons.
