Spa escapes help rejuvenate and renew your current appearance, unlike prison escapes, which require one to assume the identity of a bumbling security guard. Loosen the chains of a stressful lifestyle with today's Groupon: for $25, new clients get one week of unlimited spa services (up to a $455 value) at Planet Beach Contempo Spa's Guilderland location in Cosimo's Plaza. This Groupon is valid for up to two services per day, but only one Mystic spray tan for the week.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station in which state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro-massages and therasage 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. Immerse yourself in the hydro-derma fusion treatment ($25), which revitalizes dermis with infrared heat and a wallop of nutrient-packed moisturizers, or overthrow tyrannical tension with an aqua massage ($25). The therasage is designed to release back pain, improve circulation, and boost metabolism with infrared heat therapy ($25), and the Mystic spray tan ($25) is a bronzing melanin marinade that can complement the hard work of the Lumiere photofacial therapy ($40), a wrinkle-reducing treatment that illuminates visages while diminishing skin problems such as acne, unsightly pores, and backstabbing sun spots.
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.
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 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. Personal spa assistants are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment.
