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 $39, you get 10 spa and tanning services at Planet Beach Contempo Spa's at their Exton located on East Swedesford Road (up to a $394 value).
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 ($39) and oxygen therapy ($25) to Mystic spray tanning ($43). Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Planet Beach also specializes in stand-up and lay-down UV-therapy tanning ($11–$17), which is said to increase the brain's production of mood-lifting chemicals, lower blood pressure, and more. Advanced spa services, such as the vitamin-infused cellulite reduction capsule ($39) and anti-aging infrared body and face treatment ($39), provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
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 red light anti-aging bed, a light-based service that delivers anti-aging and rejuvenating results to skin from head to toe by stimulating collagen and elastin production to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and inflammation. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydration Station 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, tan with UV-light, and massage muscles. Clients can also make use of the personal oxygen bar.
Planet Beach offers membership packages or 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.
