It may seem strange to visit a tanning spa in the sun capital of the world, but Miamians who are looking for the perfect, lineless glow head to Boca Tanning Club in Brickell. Owner Zurami understands that people want to look their best, so the club offers a full suite of glamor-enhancing techniques, including traditional laydown tanning booths with built in-facial tanners and cooling misters. More advanced options include the Boca Super booth, a vertical tanning machine that provides a complete 360 degree tan in just ten minutes. Customized options are available inside the bamboo-studded, friendly space as well, including airbrush spray tanning, and a sunless spray that combines bronzing and anti-aging skin firming elements in one. Boca Tanning Club offers an array of products for take home use as well, though the shop’s funky faux-rock walls and jungle-themed interior are something that should absolutely be seen in person.
Through the concentrated use of infrared light, LA Tans & Aesthetic Center helps clients reach their health apex through internal cleansing treatments. Take a seat in the sauna, a steam-free booth filled with infrared heaters waiting to saturate the skin in radiance as powerful as the sun's, minus the damaging ultraviolet rays and obnoxious ego. The infrared heat targets fat cells, lifts them head over heels, and shakes their pockets loose of contaminants in the form of perspiration. Infrared sessions are thought to increase circulation and stimulate tissues, which may be useful for treating arthritis or limbering up for a strenuous jazz-hands performance.
The stylists at Evolution Beauty Salon can do it all. They flow effortlessly from face-flattering haircuts to relaxing pedicures to detoxifying body treatments. They whisk away unwanted hair with wax, and clear the back of oil buildup with back treatments.
Within the pink walls of The V Spot Salon, pampering pros provide a plethora of services to transform forlorn figures into beaming beauty queens. Indulge in a Shellac manicure, which will leave your nails filed, cleansed, and enameled. After tidying your finger canvases, a face ace expertly dabs on a careful coating of color with a professional airbrush makeup application. Next, a stylish updo renders tresses coiffed and ready for glamorous events from a debutante ball to a black-tie ballgame. Those looking to spicy up their anatomies may opt for a custom vajazzling ($35+), during which a bling master bedazzles birthday suits with an embellishment of Swarovski crystals. Dermal designers may opt for the flirtatious pattern of their choice, such as a butterfly, a heart, or their favorite sonnet. Whether beautifying your body's attic or basement, toast your time at The V Spot Salon with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine, or a nonalcoholic sparkling beverage for those under 21.
Spray tans, massages, teeth whitening, and other beauty services are all available at Planet Beach Contempo Spa, but unlike at other day spas, each treatment is administered via machine. Automated massage tables relieve bodily tension, Mystic Tan nozzles dispense tanning formula, and LED lights switch on at the push of a button to brighten complexions with their therapeutic rays. For a monthly membership fee, patrons gain unlimited access to all of these services, which are also available a la carte.
