Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. 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.
CUSP, a sister boutique of Neiman Marcus, lines its shelves with apparel and accessories that set wardrobes afire with the flames of fashion. Labels range from trendy (J Brand) to ultra chic (DVF).

Onsen Secret takes its name as well as its cosmetic inspiration from the Japanese hot springs frequented by women as far back as the 10th century.

The company's signature Micro Water Complex is the foundation for all its formulas.
