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.
La Femme Salon's experienced artistic team cossets clients' craniums with a passel of beautifying treatments during the La Femme Special. After they consult with the guest to design a haircut that suits his or her personal style, head shape, and favorite Mexican wrestling mask, style mavens wield a pair of shimmering scissors to snip head-threads into shape, pausing to administer a tension-banishing scalp massage. Then, a one-process color and a deep treatment retints and beglosses the newly refreshed strands before they're styled into a brand-new 'do. After their treatment is complete, clients perched in lemon-yellow chairs can admire their upgraded look in sleek, black vanity mirrors, or daydream of licking tangy lime flavors from the salon's light green walls.
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.
