Stephen Smith, the literal wizard behind the figurative curtain at Planet Beach Contempo Spa, has developed a variety of efficient, self-guided treatments that beautify skin or relieve stress at the touch of a button. Patrons can pay an affordable monthly membership fee at four Miami-area locations to access the automated services, which include sunless spray tans, traditional or high-pressure UV tanning, and full-body hydration treatments that nourish skin and can extend the life of a tan. The Luminous facial device has been designed to fight signs of aging with light therapy, and several types of massage beds melt away stress.
Guests pay an additional fee only for the products that correspond to the services they want. A sauna-suit purchase is required for the infrared sauna, and teeth-whitening treatments require a mouth guard that can be used for games of full-contact horseshoes.
At Spa 3067, talented spa specialists forge smooth skin and illuminated images with a flock of refreshing skin, nail, and waxing services. Like stripping an old floor to reveal the beautiful ice rink beneath, the 30-minute PCA chemical peel for the face uses hydroquinone and resorcinol to help create a smoother texture, fewer blemishes, and a firmer appearance, with results appearing within 5–7 days. Alternately, faces can be scrubbed and resuscitated with a thoroughly cleansing facial and the scintillating diamond crystal spray of a microdermabrasion treatment, which removes the outermost layer of skin to help reveal a face that's smooth, rejuvenated, and the perfect surface for building a Jenga tower. The spa is also skilled in oncology aesthetics, making an alluring appearance attainable for face aficionados no matter their condition.

Taut dorsal filaments unwind under the pressurized kneads, which chase away stress deposits while working out chronic kinks imbedded deep within muscles.
