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.
At locations in Colleyville and Watauga, Universal Threading Salon & Spa's technicians twist lengths of cotton thread to pull out unwanted facial hair from the root. Threading isn't the only beauty technique borrowed from ancient Eastern traditions: they decorate visitors' hands with the intricate, lacy henna designs known as mehndi. Along with dressing up arms, they relax hands by rendering stress-melting massages or slowly easing your grip off the jackhammer. Microdermabrasion and Dermalogica facials further underscore the spa's dedication to smooth, glowing skin, which can complement the application of lash extensions or permanent makeup.
The chiropractic professionals at Texas Pain & Wellness work to prevent injury and illness so that patients can fully participate in life. The specialists accomplish this by evaluating each person as a whole, investigating age, lifestyle, diet, and fashion sense while rotating the patient on a Lazy Susan. After pinpointing the underlying cause of any pain or ailments, Dr. Alwyn Lorenzo develops a personalized wellness plan that incorporates various services and techniques. In addition to spinal adjustments and massages, the clinic offers New Age remedies including sonic vibration therapy, which aggressively wiggles the body to simulate anaerobic and aerobic exercise.
At Skylight Massage and Skincare, specialty massages and decadent add-ons merge into uplifting treatments that rejuvenate the body and spirit. The ashiatsu massage is a house specialty featuring a deep-pressure technique that soothes sore and achy muscles in the back, chest, hips, and legs. Once muscles are loose, a client may further relax under the soothing warmth of heated basalt stones or the tingling sensations of a natural-fiber brush, used to increase blood flow. Such duality is key here, with lavish spa services softening the edges of focused therapeutic bodywork, causing pain and stress to dissolve like slugs in a salt cave. Other services include an organic cellulite massage, a 24-karat gold facial, and an herb-and-mineral foot soak that incorporates lemon clay, shea butter, and essential oils.
Elite Skin and Lasers, aestheticians and on-site doctors work to keep clients looking youthful through Botox, Dysport, and Juvederm injections or photofacials. In aesthetic treatments, staff help retouch skin and reduce the appearance of imperfections with devices including Advanced Fluorescent Technology and Pixel Perfect fractional laser tech.
In an elegant setting that exudes tranquility, the stylists at Deja'Vu pamper female and male patrons with comprehensive beautifying treatments. Entrust a coif to the skilled scissor hands of a salon specialist, who can customize an alluring haircut and beguiling styling that best reflects the client’s unique personality and ideal credit score. Meanwhile, a shampoo treatment soothes the scalp and ensures that locks sport a healthy shine in their ‘do debut.
