Bliss, Hoboken
The Blisslabs Active 99.0 Facial ($275) uses super-infused formulas and a proprietary technique that claims to restart the natural mechanisms and reflexes of young skin. Mega-doses of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants are layered on top of one another, releasing the infusions to the skin. The treatment includes a session of microdermabrasion, as well as something they call microcurrent toning massage technology, which is said to aid in firming. The promise: Your skin will be given better strength and tone, and an overall more vibrant appearance immediately. 201-253-2550.  

BRC Day Spa, Fair Lawn
In the Himalayan salt room ($45 for 30 minutes), you sit surrounded by walls of red salt blocks supposedly for anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits. There is also an infrared sauna ($20 for 30 minutes) with customizable wavelengths, and a float pod ($40 for 30 minutes), where you experience something akin to zero gravity (under a closed lid for sensory deprivation), leading to what the owners say is “euphoric relaxation.” 201-797-3002.

Elements at Minerals Resort, Vernon
The Slimming Spot ($140) combines wellness and beauty. The treatment focuses on one area of your choosing (e.g., thighs, stomach). The goal is to remove cellulite and tighten and tone the skin. The effects—said to last up to two months—are achieved using a non-woven cloth wrap infused with botanicals. The treatment includes foot reflexology, face, neck and scalp massage, and lower-leg massage.

Fantagio Spa & Body, Haddonfield
Love chocolate? Fantagio describes its Chocolate Mud session ($120) as “a treat for the senses.” The application uses dark cocoa, which has a high degree of antioxidants. For dry and sensitive skin, Fantagio recommends its Milk and Honey Rehydrating Treatment ($120). 856-354-5000.
