The licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at My Day Tan & Spa beckon bodies into a soothing oasis, where wall lamps line dark apricot walls and lead to private, dimly lit spa rooms. Deep-tissue kneads and fluid Swedish strokes dissipate stress caused from unresolved tickle fights, and aestheticians tackle surface problems with facials targeted to treat acne or aging. Four levels of tanning beds compete with Mystic spray-tan booths to give skin a sun-smacked glow. After their spa treatment, clients can peruse the spa?s boutique of purses, clothing, and lotions.
The therapists at Works of Wonder Massage pluck out weeds of pain and stress and plant the seeds of relaxation with a custom regimen of Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massages. Alongside massage services, the staff revitalizes complexions with the hot-cold therapy of the hot-towel and cold-stone facial, releases environmental contaminants with detox body wraps, and exfoliates feet with thorough scrubs.
At more than 30 locations in the Houston area, clients check in at marble-fronted reception desks to meet with a member of Darque Tan's International Smart Tan Network—staff trained to determine the best path to their bronzing goals. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
Beauty and technology blend at Belle Spas, where visitors are relaxed and refreshed with services for the entire body. Radio frequency fosters younger-looking faces, chests, and hands as a technician guides a sublative laser over skin. Noninvasive ultrasound, steam, and body wraps are designed to shrink stubborn fat deposits, and massages in modalities including Swedish and hot stone melt the stress and icicles hiding in muscles. Customers looking to prolong their newly soothed mood may procure supplements and skin serums at the Belle boutique.
During spa packages, brides-to-be, birthday girls, and teens don comfy spa robes and slippers before receiving soothing massages, mani-pedis, and facials from therapists and aestheticians at Spa Lounge. Classic facials revive spirits, cleansing facials wash away impurities, and rejuvenating facials refresh skin that may be marred by blemishes or covered in headlines from old newspapers. Aestheticians can also embellish faces with brow waxing and lash extensions.
The name might be Faces365, but this spa caters to any and all skincare needs. That means personalized facials, body waxing, microdermabrasion treatments, and Yon-Ka Paris botanical products.
For those new to the face-pampering game, Faces365's Healthy Results Intro Facial is ideal.

Vitamin C peels and microdermabrasion treatments can be added on to facials for extra skin beautification. Advanced skincare comes in the form of resurfacing treatments, non-invasive face lifts, and more.
