Skin Solutions aims to treat an array of skin concerns while offering a serene environment for guests. While calming music plays in the background, technicians treat everything from hyperpigmentation to acne with myriad services. They pamper faces with anti-aging and men's facials, exfoliating enzyme and chemical peels, and fine-line-eliminating microdermabrasion treatments. To complement revitalized complexions, Skin Solutions offers facial and body waxing.
Downtown Massage Studio's therapists share a single goal: to silent life's loudest distractions with relaxing massages. What they don't share, however, is a single way to achieve this goal. Sometimes they relieve tension with gentle Swedish strokes, while other times they rely on heated basalt stones to melt away adhesions. They even offer special packages such as the lavender bliss massage, which includes a rejuvenating facial to replace any skin blown away by the wind.
Part boutique and part salon, Couture Cosmetics offers customers the opportunity to get a makeover and accessorize, practically at the same time. On the salon side, stylists sculpt modern hairdos and color and treat locks. The boutique side, meanwhile, features beauty products as well as makeup, purses, dresses, and jewelry so clients can outfit themselves to match their new look.
Licensed massage therapist Tammy Coggins works to fight stress and pain with deep-tissue, Swedish, and lymphatic-drainage massage techniques. Coggins performs additional modalities including craniosacral therapy, designed to lengthen and align the spine, and visceral manipulation, during which she applies soft force to the connective tissues.
Ashanti's Hair Design offers cuts, coloring, and texturizing treatments in a warm and welcoming environment. The artistic stylists combine technique and fashion-savvy to tailor hairstyles to their clients' features and lifestyles. An elegant cut, stunning new color, blowdry, or fringing treatment can breathe new life into a hairdo.
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.
