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 to Planet Beach Contempo Spa in Sarasota. Choose between the following options:
- For $49, you get one month of unlimited red-light therapy with two accompanying products and a 15-minute Cyber-Relax massage (a $410 value).
- For $39, you get three Lumiere luminous facials with three accompanying products and a 15-minute Cyber-Relax massage (a $132 value).
Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. Red-light therapy aims to render visitors as deliciously jejune as an uncooked blueberry pie using a one-two wallop of products alongside exposure to red collagen light (a $29 value/treatment). Wrinkle-weary visitors loll beneath the automaton's crimson glow for 15 minutes each session, and after a month of treatments, skin may emerge rejuvenated, smoother, and firmer, thanks to a boost in skin's collagen production. At-home use of the included red-light serum (a $30 value) and post-therapy spray (a $32 value) encourages results to appear sooner than with just lights alone.
The Lumiere luminous facial affords unclean visages a reprieve during three 20-minute ministrations (a $29 value each). The procedure, like its red-light comrade and most nighttime park rangers, wields brightened beams to fight off problematic elements. The take-home regime of clearing (a $15 value), firming (a $15 value), and repairing (a $15 value) serums bulks up mugs with nutrients to continue stoking the flames of collagen and elastin produced by the robotic procedures. Both the red-light and Lumiere treatments cap off with a one-time body-boosting turn in the Cyber-Relax massage chair.
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.
