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 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.
Glo Sun Spa keeps a slew of modern bronzing, polishing, and hydrating technologies in peak condition. With a variety of tanning beds, Glo Sun Spa provides a wide range of sun-kissed glows. Alternatively, sunless VersaSpa and Pura Sunless systems provide a tan away from the sun's rays. The hydration station combines Hydrofusion with steam and LED technology to moisturize and tan epidermises, and the Lumiere Excel system features a series of repairing, clearing, and firming regimens. Glo Sun Spa also stocks a full line of lavish skincare products from brands such as Devoted Creations.
Avante Laser & MediSpa's expert team makes perfection its mission, striving to fulfill clients' aesthetic wishes with procedures that combine advanced technology with soothing spa services. Complexions can be exfoliated with diamond-tip microdermabrasions or granted lasting enhancement with permanent makeup, and bodies are cared for with waxing and skincare services. True to its name, the med spa employs lasers in a variety of treatments, from laser hair removal, to cellulite- and fat-melting sessions, to fractional skin resurfacing, which gradually minimize the appearance of fine lines and scars. Massage therapy can help visitors shed tension from daily stress or weekly bouts of elephant lifting.
At BODYanew MedSpa Texas, beauty specialists enhance appearances with laser technology, using the concentrated light for various purposes from hair removal to weight-loss management. Prior to any laser treatment, a technician determines the client's aesthetic goals, drawing up a personalized plan of action. Laser light works quickly and is noninvasive, allowing patients to achieve results with little to no downtime. Under the unblinking eye of laser light, waistlines slenderize, skin rejuvenates, and questionable tattoos of a beloved lamp are temporarily blinded. Recently, the company added hydrafacials to its menu of services. Hydrafacials mimic the action of microdermabrasion, but go beyond resurfacing skin to moisturize and nourish it.
DermSpa Laser Clinic's medical professionals deliver age-defying treatments within a soothing, spa-like environment. Technicians customize treatments to match each client's skin type and brief patients on the minimally invasive procedure. During microdermabrasion, visages are gently showered with aluminum-oxide crystals that search and destroy lingering bacteria and impurities stashed away in pores in a process that results in minimal downtime, so faces can return to normal activities such as smiling and flirting with mirrors. Appearance of fine lines and wrinkles diminish, age spots fade, and some scars may live on only in exaggerated tales.
