Colorado Tan?s technicians make sure their clients leave with sun-kissed skin and sparkling smiles. Five levels of tanning beds are equipped with such extras as face and shoulder tanning lamps, and a fan to keep clients cool during darkening sessions. Alternatively, a Mystic Tan booth covers bodies in a UV-free spray tan solution that doesn't leave any streaks or crop circles on the skin. Technicians enhance smiles with the Da Vinci teeth-whitening system, which has a blue light-activated formula that erases stains from wine, tobacco, and coffee.
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.
Glo Sun Spa keeps a slew of modern bronzing, polishing, and hydrating technologies in peak condition. With a variety of tanning beds, Glo Sun Spa provides a wide range of sun-kissed glows. Alternatively, sunless VersaSpa and Pura Sunless systems provide a tan away from the sun's rays. 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.
Inside a large lofted facility, clients recline and develop their bronzy hues in tanning beds for up to 20 minutes per session, depending on UV levels. VersaSpa booths are also on hand, equipped with automated sprayers that emit a DHA-based tanning mist. The solution works naturally with skin to form deep and even tans that span from clients' heads to their toes, much like the warmest ski hats.
