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.
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.
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.
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.
Services at Axiom Spa are extensive: clinical facial treatments, teeth whitening, and permanent makeup are but a few of the team's specialties. Dermaroller treatments, and red- and blue-light therapies illuminate dewier complexions, while microdermabrasions and PCA peels slough away dullness-causing debris and distracting fake noses. Whether opting for an intensive skin treatment, a simple waxing session, or a set of eyelash extensions, guests are greeted by experienced, artful aestheticians.
The trained staff at Tan Las Vegas helps clients navigate three levels of UV beds and several spray-tanning options to craft a bronzing regime that best suits their skin type and desired results. UV tanning allows clients to build a base or maintain an existing tan in 12, 15, or 20 minutes. Automated VersaSpa booths alternate pigmented mists with drying jets to build a golden glow in less than one minute, with results that last for seven days—or longer if encased in amber. Technicians can also apply custom shades by hand with an airbrush system, which imparts a natural-looking, streak-free color that flatters bodily contours.
