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 spray tan skin and massage muscles, while teeth-whitening kits brighten chompers.
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.
Under the guidance of spa owner, aesthetician, and makeup artist Lori Taylor, Belleza Day Spa's team has maintained Lori's vision: cultivating an unparalleled spa experience by individually tailoring every treatment. Armed with products from Jan Marini and cosmetic lines such as Laura Mercier and Scott Barnes, they take care of the body both inside and out. Facials, waxing, and other skincare help to make clients look luminous, and certified massage therapists relieve tension and break up scar tissue formed from trying to high-five gorillas. The staff also specializes in makeup application, offering packages that include bridal-party services. As a way of giving back to the community, Belleza provides a 30% service discount for firefighters, police officers, and hospital staff, a 15% product discount, and even a 15% discount for the spouses of these service workers.
Soreness melts from tense musculature as clients soak in the hot tub at Family Health Center. Each room at the brightly lit spa is lined with intricate tile work in the shape of flowers or sunrises, serving as a cheerful mood inducer and a nice backdrops for self-taken headshots. Sweating in the steam sauna releases toxins and enhances circulation; patrons can also detoxify via body scrubs and massage sessions. A rest room offers guests a padded space to lie down and meditate in between visits to the assorted spa rooms and their corresponding hallways.
The certified therapists at A Perfect Day Spa coax burdens of stress and tension out of client bodies with an expansive repertoire of massage techniques. Muscle pamperings are available across an intensity spectrum that ranges from light and relaxing to deep tissue, with something to suit every client. The classic Swedish method uses kneading and sliding to dissolve tightness, and the sports massage helps to rehabilitate athletes weary from slam-dunk marathons. Backs will peacefully glow with warmth and improved circulation after hot stones draw out the chill of inflexibility. A Perfect Day Spa also offers a pregnancy massage specifically designed to mitigate the aches of carrying around a perfectly formed, tiny adult.
Laser hair removal gets rid of pesky strands by targeting them at the follicle with two rhythmic handclaps and an intense burst of light. The beam heats the follicle to a controlled, sauna-like temperature, soothing the hair before it experiences a life review and a serene, fade-to-white farewell. Immediately following treatments, some clients may experience redness, but they will be professionally advised with a post-treatment skin-care plan to relieve whatever minor irritation may occur. Women can use today's Groupon to treat their underarms ($540/three sessions), bikini line ($607.50/three sessions), upper lip ($337.50/three sessions), or chin ($472.50/three sessions), and men can use it for their shoulders ($275 per session) or the nape or the front of their neck ($175 per session). As few as three to four sessions (spaced two to three months apart) are typically required to see permanent results, and customers can conveniently combine two Groupons for a total of six sessions.
