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.
Guests who come inside any of Malibu Tan’s many locations are greeted with a handshake. Though that might seem like an old-school approach to customer service, Malibu Tan’s owner encourages it as a genuine way for his staff to connect with each client and provide them with customized services. For more than 15 years, Malibu’s friendly staffers have also connected with higher-profile clients—including the Houston Dymano Girls team—by helping them choose the best of each facility’s tanning options for their skin types. With UV tanning, regardless of whether a client prefers a supine or standup system, they are bound to get a strong tan, as all UV bulbs are changed 200 hours before they hit capacity or finally crack open and release a butterfly. There are also plenty of UV-free options such as VersaSpa sunless tanning, which darkens exteriors with a hydrating DHA-based solution. Each location also offers tan-enhancing products from Swedish Beauty and California Tan.
The specialists at Trinity Salon & Day Spa divide their attention between the face and body, though they make sure not to skimp on either. Among their wide range of services—which include massages, hairstyling, nailcare, and body waxing—is a collection of facials designed to treat specific conditions such as acne, aging, and dryness. Custom airbrush tans imbue skin with a natural, UV-free glow, and eyelash extensions enhance the length and volume of lashes without mascara or growth hormones.
