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.
Licensed medical aesthetician Phyllis Gasparri performs each facial treatment at Skin Perfect, drawing on more than 25 years of experience as she treats acne and wrinkles during services that emphasize clinical approaches to skincare. Among her weapons of choice are lasers—which she uses to reduce scar tissue and remove hair and tattoos—and exfoliation tools such as microdermabrasion wands and chemical-peel solutions. To keep up their progress, clients can take home products from SkinCeuticals and Cell Renewal Systems or purchase one of the shop’s own line of mini facial steamers, which sterilize and clean the face while discreetly opening envelopes within a 50-yard radius.
The licensed and experienced aestheticians of Sanctuary Esthetics work to enhance the natural beauty of faces with a variety of noninvasive skin treatments for women and men. Their ministrations include facial treatments that target acne or fine lines, back treatments, and microdermabrasion. Services can be enhanced with upgrades such as collagen masks or aromatherapy.
The Fit Factory aims to combine the act of getting in shape with a bit a personal entertainment, teaching dance steps during Zumba, self-defense in Pound Fitness, and self-expression through pole fitness. Instructors hold classes up to seven days a week. Outside of regularly scheduled sessions, they hold private pole parties and antigravity hammock parties for groups of ladies looking to enjoy a healthy night out or celebrate a holiday or special occasion.
Betty Lynn practices art on a surface far more delicate than a canvas: the human face. With a steady hand, she gently applies makeup in intricate designs that befit each client, from brides wanting a rosy glow to models looking to make a fashion statement with dramatic eyeliners and lashes. For a more subtle effect, her makeup applications can also simply accentuate the client's facial features in a flattering way.
Betty Lynn's artistic skills aren't just limited to makeup applications. At birthday parties, she thrills kids by painting their faces with their favorite designs, such as a Spiderman mask or the cover of a math textbook. She also travels to private residences to paint customized murals in kitchens and nurseries.
