Led by Dr. Richard Castellano and Dr. Randall Weyrich—renowned facial plastic surgeons who have performed thousands of face-lifts—the cosmetic professionals at Image Lift encourage clients to explore their options before making a treatment decision. To that end, the doctors offer weekly seminars, free consultations, and a series of medically themed choose-your-own-adventure novels to prospective clients in order to answer any questions they may have regarding procedures such as Botox, laser resurfacing, and ultrasonic skin tightening. When they aren't freshening faces in the office or spending time with their families, the specialists raise awareness for local and national causes.
Licensed massage therapists Marielle Shoffstall and Vincent Cicchetti join forces under the guise of Therapy Touch Massage, where they focus on treatments that assuage stress and reduce pain. Their soothing repertoire includes a signature custom massage, gentle Swedish strokes, and a more intense deep-tissue massage that targets buried aches. They also relieve mommies-to-be with prenatal treatments, which work to alleviate common maternity issues such as stiff necks, back pain, and the inability to hula-hoop. A variety of Spaaahh Therapies can enhance each treatment with pressure-point reflexology or hot-stone-and-bamboo fusion.

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.
