$69 for One Mystic Spray Tan and Teeth Whitening ($178 Total Value)
In a 30-second session (a $29 value), the automated Mystic Tan spray-tan booth imparts a UV-free tan that lasts for 5–7 days. During the BleachBright teeth whitening treatment (a $149 value), clients apply a strong whitening gel to teeth before directing their chompers toward a LED light for 15 minutes. This process is repeated three times, whitening teeth up to six shades in under an hour. An enamel boost pen is also included to help seal in results.
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 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, 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.
