At EyeCandy Sunless Spa’s two locations, the staff specializes in custom airbrush spray tans and eyelash extensions. All spray-tan and eyelash artists are licensed cosmetologists or aestheticians, led by owner Meri, a beauty industry and tanning veteran. Along with bronzing bods and beautifying eyelash fringe, the spa also offers teeth-whitening services.

Inside Stacey Jae's Massage Studio, therapists apply custom strokes to attack chronic pain in toughened muscles, tailoring services to suit athletes, sufferers of chronic pain, or those with fibromyalgia. Owner and Fair Oaks Massage Institute graduate Stacey Jae draws from more than 3,000 hours of experience and more than 500 hours of education to alleviate specific problems. Though her specialties include deep-tissue massage and injury prevention, she also blends in aromatherapy and hot stones for relaxation-focused sessions. No matter what modality they prefer, Stacey allows her customers to maintain complete control over their appointment, draping them to their comfort and always letting them dictate how much yodeling is too much.
Many dentists use a UV light to whiten their patient’s teeth, but only the beauty experts at Twilight Teeth reasoned that clients could use the same light to tan their skin while whitening their teeth. The UV lights of their tanning beds shine on bodies and illuminate smiles, comfortably held open by a mouth guard and coated in gel. The gel activates under the light and contains 25% peroxide—among the highest concentrations in the industry. Since the gel is painted on instead of held in place by a whitening tray, it can brighten high beams with minimal discomfort. Clients who can’t stay at the tanning salon can take home a kit, which substitutes a portable UV light or a mason jar filled with baby stars.
Dr. Rina Ambaram and Dr. Nancy Welch lavish hardworking, underappreciated teeth with attention during preventive, surgical, and orthodontic services. Digital x-rays and intraoral cameras fortify exams with up-close periodontal details, and handheld electric cleaning tools allow the dentists to hastily slough away mouths' debris and dirty-word residue. The technologically savvy dentists also inspect mouths with a cancer-seeking lamp, and use rotary endodontics to render root canals more efficient and simple than ever before. Sedation options set nervous guests at ease.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all 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 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.
