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 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 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, 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.
Tan du Soleil's dedication to bronzing limbs is part of Axiom Fitness's broader program of making bodies looks healthy and toned. Each of Axiom's three locations host a shop that effectively serves as the sun's kissing booth, primarily filled with Ergoline UV beds that colour skin on four levels. Mystic Tan spray booths sidestep UV rays entirely in favour of gentle bronzer, and a stock of premium-brand lotions deepen and sustain a golden glow begot by a variety of methods, excepting Midas's touch.
Inside Jamaca Me Tan, Heather expertly decorates faces using a SofTap permanent makeup system.

Also at the salon, tanning beds imbue bodies with a golden hue and a team of spray tan specialists bronze pelts in 60 seconds flat.
