A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 230 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach — A 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.
Gift your gumcessories a whitening treatment—the Zoom! whitening treatment (up to a $399 value) is designed for safe, immediate shade shifting of eight shades on average. This quick, effective process takes less than an hour and involves the application of a scientifically formulated light-activated gel that works wonders under a specially designed LED light. Kick back and relax as the activated gel makes its way into your teeth, targeting discolorations and transforming smiles from sparkling to most sparklingest. You'll be fully armed with instant brightness that can last for years, and, much like building a cubicle, the entire process takes place in-office, which means you'll be exempt from additional take-home whitening regimens; though, to remain at the pinnacle of pearliness, five out of five dentists recommend maintaining proper care.
Education is the cornerstone of Dr. Michael Mierzejewski's practice. He earned his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University and obtained a DMD from Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine in Florida, where healthy smiles supply 95% of the state's sunshine. And the doctor's training didn't end there. Today, he regularly attends continuing education courses and maintains memberships in the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the Southern Nevada Dental Society.
This pursuit of knowledge is mirrored in the actions in the office as well. Dr. Mierzejewski and the team at Just Smiles learn everything they can about each adult or child they meet. They speak candidly about dental hygiene as well as issues such as sensitive teeth, tooth decay, and bad breath. It's only after these discussions that the team administers cleanings or recommends more in-depth procedures, such as Invisalign braces.
