Whether smoothing away acne or fine lines with an executive facial or crafting trial updos for brides-to-be, the staff at Jbraun Salon Spa, previously called the Indigo Salon, aims to treat every client like a VIP. Scissors and clippers clean up the unruly manes of men, women, and kids, and Brazilian blowout treatments tame frizz using a formula lauded by celebrities such as Nicole Richie. Once strands are looking smooth and sleek, faces get ready for their close-up with a Red Carpet facial, and nails express their own inner Beyonc? or Lady Gaga with a Minx manicure and pedicure. Private rooms give salon superstars a quiet place to escape the spotlight, relax with a soothing Swedish or deep-tissue massage, or practice awards-show acceptance speeches.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach 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.
Kelly Muzall, registered nurse and founder of Estudio de Piel, surrounds herself with beauty professionals who continually pursue ongoing education. Their credentials, like every DeLorean ever made, reach into the past and future?licensed massage therapist Kevin Barry has more than a quarter century of experience in the field, but has broadened his skill set to include deep-water massage and spiritual medicine. Physician assistant Katie O?Brien held director-level positions at clinics across the heartland before planting roots at Estudio de Piel. She also founded a consulting business that trains physicians and nurses to administer injectables. Though Barry and O?Brien represent only two of several professionals, they embody the level of expertise at Estudio de Piel. Each time someone clinches a new certification, the spa adds another service. Since opening, the spa has added microdermabrasions, chemical peels, sclerotherapy, and laser treatments to its menu.
Advanced DermaCare Inc's founder, Diane D. Lowery, earned a CIDESCO certification in aesthetics while studying at the venerable Clinique La Prairie wellness retreat in Montreux, Switzerland. Although her European education evokes a low-tech, layered approach to skin treatments, Lowery?approaching 30 years as a skin therapist?specializes in the opposite. Her gentle skin treatments promote firm, even tone with pulses of LED light and electro-microcurrents, and exfoliate rough areas with tiny diamond chips or water jets enriched with antioxidants. She attended courses in naturopathic medicine at Bastyr University to develop a holistic view of skin health, and studied ways to turn back the body's clock without triggering early daylight-saving time at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
