Spa escapes help to rejuvenate and renew your appearance, unlike prison escapes, which require you to assume the identity of a bumbling security guard. Loosen the chains of a stressful lifestyle with today's Groupon: for $19, you get five spa sessions at Planet Beach (up to a $195 value), valid at 8 triangle-area locations. This Groupon is valid for your choice of the following services: UV tanning, massage, skin rejuvenation, red-light therapy, and up to one Mystic spray tan.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer stress-reducing, body-beautifying services. Red-light therapy and topical skincare products join forces during Luminous facials, working to reduce wrinkles, stimulate cell production, and celebrate the invention of the sun. The Hydro-Massage bed—a completely dry treatment—focuses on pressure points along the spine and quietly sings sea shanties to tense muscles until they succumb to the siren song of relaxation.
During 20-minute Hydro-Derma Fusion treatments, clients crawl into a sleek pod to bask in infrared heat and thick steam. In addition to moisturizing and smoothing out skin, nutrients in the vapor work to unclog pores, like flowing magma unclogs traffic jams. UV-free Mystic spray tans mist bodies a natural golden hue that lasts up to seven days.
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.
