A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach 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.
At Tan U, there's no wrong way to darken your shade. The studio offers a variety of suntanning services, both in the tanning bed and spray-tan variety.

In contrast to their tanning services, Tan U also offers a way to lighten up with teeth-whitening treatments.

The consultants at Jill's Beach want to help patrons achieve a sun-kissed tan without overexposing their skin. So the state-certified consultant recommend tanning booths depending on the person's skin type and tanning goals, whether those are getting more vitamin D or getting a base color before a vacation. They also educate guests about the benefits of tanning lotions, which often include anti-aging and anti-cellulite ingredients.
