Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. Sun-starved hides can jump-start their glow with a round of level-one Mystic spray tanning. Employing MagneTan technology, Mystic’s mist adheres to the skin-suit evenly and streaklessly using the body's natural magnetic properties and innate force fields, leaving it bronzed and beautiful for five to seven days. Afterward, whisk newly bronzed bods to a CyberRelax message chair for a luminous facial, which bathes skin in LED therapy. Working in conjunction with topical skincare serums, the facial helps reduce fine lines and evidence of solar foul play, while promoting even skin texture and tone.
Simply Beautiful Med-Spa’s staff uses modern medical treatments and products from Dermalogica and Obagi skincare to impart beautiful, clean skin for its clients. Like a tap of the remote control with one’s nose, dermal fillers restore volume, also filling and lifting areas around the mouth and between the brows. Facial treatments restore skin with gentle exfoliation, deep pore cleansing, and custom masks. Another pillar of the spa’s treatment syllabus is the removal of unwanted hair through facial waxing and the use of lasers.

The hydration station combines Hydrofusion with steam and LED technology to moisturize and tan epidermises, and the Lumiere Excel system features a series of repairing, clearing, and firming regimens. Glo Sun Spa also stocks a full line of lavish skincare products from brands such as Devoted Creations.
Island Tan detoxifies the body with calorie-burning, form-whittling Formostar infrared body wraps. During each 50-minute treatment, guests repose beneath a sextet of silicone pads that rest on problem spots such as thighs and hips for women, abdomens and chests for men, and hooves for minotaurs. Patrons control the temperature of their incubating blanket, releasing the desired amount of far-infrared heat that will penetrate the skin's surface. As the mercury of each body's internal thermometer creeps up, bodies may sizzle away between 900 and 1,400 calories, or the equivalent of seven boiling cauldrons of rainbow sprinkles. Most patients require 6–10 sessions to blast away noticeable inches.

At Beyond Bronze Tanning Spa, clients bask in airbrush-tanning mist calibrated to their individual skin tone. Alternatively, they can garner a glow by lying in a tanning bed. After sessions, patrons emerge with the kind of burnished skin that was once only attained by lying in the sun for hours or soaking in a bathtub full of dandelion petals.
The staff at The Solar Lounge takes the guesswork out of sunless tanning. They evaluate each client's skin type upon request, to help determine how he or she can attain the most natural-looking tan. UV tanning beds are available in six configurations, some with air conditioning and misting systems to keep tanners cool so they don't have to put ice cubes in their bathing suits. VersaSpa spray tanning steeps skin in long-lasting color. Finally, the hydration station seals in moisture to keep skin supple and detoxified.
