Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro massages and oxygen therapy to spray tanning and luminous facials. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. UV tanning sessions are available, along with Mystic spray-tanning for a light butterscotch topping. Advanced spa services, such as hydro-derma fusion, hydro massage, SaunaTox, and LED facials provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members pay for packages or flat monthly rates. With a week of services, this Groupon allows anyone to take advantage of Rube Goldberg–style beautification on his or her own time frame. A staff of helpful spa assistants is always on hand to answer questions, help first-timers use the machines, and keep things safe and comfortable. Call ahead to make appointments; services are subject to availability.
Limit one Mystic tan. Customers must be over age 15; anyone under age 18 must have parental consent. Valid for new and current customers.
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.

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.
