In the Dark Ages, princesses exfoliated with Fabergé-egg dust and filed fingernails on the edges of gold doubloons. Revel in more modern and luxurious beauty treatments with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $49 for three luminous facials, three hydro-derma fusion treatments, and three massages (a $360 value)
- $89 for six luminous facials, six hydro-derma fusion treatments, and six massages (a $720 value)
Clients submit their faces to the healing rays of a luminous light-therapy facial that, when combined with topical products and dietary supplements, fosters a healthy, younger-looking appearance. The infrared heat and nutrient-infused steam of a hydro-derma fusion pod then cossets bodies for 20 minutes, hydrating the epidermis, cleansing pores, and boosting collagen production. Clients then opt for sessions of Therasage, which combines far-infrared heat with automated massage to stimulate circulation and forge full-body relief; hydro massage, which uses water pressure and heat to relax fully clothed guests; or a combination of the two. Though not included with this Groupon, a package of optional topical products which Planet Beach recommends to enhance each of the spa treatments results is available for purchase ($35 value).
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.
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.
