All of the skincare treatments at Sun Lounge leave skin with a glow, even if it?s not a sun-kissed one. The VersaSpa booth sprays on golden glows in a handful of shades to correspond with each client?s skin tone or suit of armor that they plan on wearing to the beach. The shop?s fleet also includes traditional UV tanning beds.
This Groupon is good for Neon Sun Tanning's Super Wolff beds, which are fully equipped to exchange pale shells for the bronzed hides of Olympian gods. Unlike the callous sun, which force feeds you a heaping helping of UV, Super Wolff beds control the amount of UV light marinating your skin. Beginning tanners can see results after a single session, but it can take four to six light baths to achieve a base tan. The unlimited monthly pass ensures that customers of any skin tone will be able to achieve their desired shade of birthday suit.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 230 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach — A 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.
Bodyheat Tanning, with 23 locations spanning Nevada (many open 24-hours), gilds bodies with the help of tanning beds in five levels, sunless spray tanning, and custom airbrush tans. VersaSpa systems automatically mist bronze color onto skin in 60 seconds. No matter what kind of tans clients are looking for, tanning experts analyze skin types and goals to help them choose the lotions, equipment, and perfect crayon shades to fit their needs.
For tan-free options, infrared body wraps melt inches, and Hydration Stations combine radiant heat, steam, and vibrations to turn tight muscles into butter. Red-light beds from iRenew eschew tanning in favor of reducing acne and fine lines. Additionally, the salons dispense myriad tanning lotions, lip glosses, and house-paint swatches for easy skin-tone matching.
In The Tan Tan Lounge's friendly confines, a corps of helpful and aptly named Tan Tan girls helps clients beautify their bodies with wraps, facials, and tanning services. Five levels of tanning beds, from high-pressure to standup booths, quickly impart natural glows reminiscent of days at the beach. Applied by hand, custom airbrush spray tans temporarily darken skin without exposing it to UV rays or making it fall down a chimney.
Careful hands at Axiom Wellness and Medical Spa pamper tender skin surfaces with a variety of beauty treatments. Targeted facial waxes rid lips, chins, brows, or third eyes of unwanted follicles, as a specialty hard wax solidifies around hairs before stripping them away. An optional anesthetic keeps Brazilian waxees comfortable. Single-strand synthetic eyelash extensions, applied one by one with an adhesive, bond onto individual eyelashes in a variety of thicknesses and colors, while lightweight mink eyelashes provide a dark sheen to solo strands after a careful application, which can last up to two hours. Both eyelash extensions can last for up to two months, which is exactly how long it takes to wink in slow motion.
