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 today's Groupon: for $20, you get one week of spa services, up to seven treatments, at Planet Beach Riverbend in New Orleans (up to a $273 value).

Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where advanced machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydromassages and detoxification services to facials and teeth whitening. Each station is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Relax with red-light therapy, UV therapy, and Luminous facials, all of which provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinesis. 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.
