During 20-minute hydration sessions, visitors lie down in a Hydration Station capsule as it heats up to 118 degrees to open pores, detoxify skin, and hydrate the body. The machine also steadily vibrates to help to flush out toxins and assist in weight loss. Afterward, clients step into an HD model of a Mystic Tan machine, which embellishes complexions with a choice of four spray-tan hues. The sunless apparatus mists bodies four times with tanning solution before its high-power blow dryer dries clients off. Sessions can also include instant bronzer or a choice of spray-tan fragrances. Newly achieved tans typically last up to eight days.
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 of 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 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.
