Professionally trained in the art of ultraviolet light, the staff at smartsweat by Aruba Sunspa is full of experts when it comes to sunless tanning and infrared saunas. Armed with an array of lie-down tanning beds that range in intensity, technicians work with each guest to ensure that they tan safely based on their skin type and the extent to which they wish to mock ancient sun gods. In addition to the beds, techs also transform alabaster skinscapes into bronzed masterpieces with a variety of spray-tanning services. During these treatments, they douse skin in a steady stream of instantly drying solutions that adhere to superficial proteins in the skin and downshift the hues. Beyond tanning services, the studio also helps guests detoxify, ease pain, and boost weight-loss programs with their namesake smartsweat infrared-saunas, which send beams of heat energy deep into skin to help mend a range of bodily issues.

LA Bliss Spa's staff soothes tired skin and frayed nerves by providing a friendly environment where clients can let go of every concern except their need for pampering. Skilled aestheticians perfect skin with a menu of facials that includes custom exfoliation and pore-cleaning variations. Facials use the Bioelements skincare line to diminish signs of aging such as lines and pigmentation in shades not in compliance with the official human color wheel. To purge the body of stress, massage therapists use Lanikai Bath and Body products, which are imported from Hawaii and nourish frames with a vegan roster of sweet almond and coconut oil. Therapists also utilize the healing properties of heated stones to relieve muscle discomfort and release endorphins back into the wild.
The professional hair stylists and aestheticians of Zaza Beauty help patrons to locate beauty products to spruce up any glam-enhancing routine for hair, faces, bodies, and nails. OPI nail polish coats talons in fetching hues usually only seen on tropical birds and super-sized crayon boxes ($8.50), and a 17-ounce bottle of Hempz lotion moisturizes parched skin, infusing it with a soft and subtle scent ($17.95). Dermalogica clean-start kits house everyday facial-care necessities designed to cleanse, moisturize, and protect skin from the sun’s judgmental gaze ($18). Zaza Beauty stocks oodles of prettifying products in an open boutique layout, which diminishes the occurrence of ferocious bobby-pin onslaughts common in more cluttered shops. Patrons can seek prettification seven days a week and can also explore Zaza's salon and spa menu (not valid with this Groupon).

At salon chairs, clients' tresses morph into bold, chic styles with dimension-adding color treatments, from highlights to ombre color. In addition to hair, the salon's aestheticians specialize in tending to skin and hair on the face. These beauty experts refresh pores with oxygen facials, exfoliate with microdermabrasion treatments, and wax the eyebrows, lips, chin, and other areas.
