Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer services that beautify the skin and slim the figure. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from oxygen-therapy treatments, which flood lungs with 95% pure oxygen and aromatherapy scents, to SlimCapsule sessions that tickle bodies with LED light to burn calories. Skin soaks in moisture, and pores expel impurities, thanks to the infrared rays and nutrient-rich steam of the Hydro-Derma Fusion treatment, and wrinkles and blemishes run from the FDA-approved light therapy of the luminous facial, which is enhanced by the application of a $10 facial-product package (not included in today’s Groupon).
Planet Beach normally operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members pay flat monthly rates for access to the spa’s services. This Groupon grants buyers the chance to choose the individual Rube Goldberg–style beauty treatments they value most. A staff of helpful spa assistants is always on hand to answer questions, help first-timers use the machines, and warn visitors about incoming asteroids. Call ahead to make appointments; services are subject to availability.
Planet Beach Contempo Spa
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.
