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 deal: for $20, you get one week of unlimited spa services (up to a $250 value) at Planet Beach Contempo Spa, located on Ocala Road.
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 and teeth whitening 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. Standard UV tanning booths are available ($12.50 value per session, $25 for high-pressure beds) along with Mystic spray tanning ($29 per session) for a light butterscotch topping. Advanced spa services, such as HydroDerma fusion, infrared sauna time, and light therapy facials ($39 per session) provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members pay for packages or flat monthly rates. With a full week of services, this Groupon allows anyone to take advantage of Rube Goldberg–style beautification at the leisurely pace of a Southern gentledonkey. 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 and the staff's discretion (i.e. you may not be able to do certain services back-to-back due to health concerns).
