Utopia Tanning & Spa bills "tanning" ahead of their other services with good reason: they offer three different approaches to getting a sun-kissed glow. In addition to traditional UV tanning booths, techs apply custom tans by hand or help clients into their Mystic spray-tanning booth. Dr. Gallacher, a certified dermatologist and laser surgeon, bolsters the spa's menu by providing more intense treatments through her own location in Danville. Meanwhile, on-site experts wax away fuzz, apply facials to ward off blemishes and wrinkles, and knead tense muscles. They also diminish the appearance of cellulite with red-light therapy booths and lengthen tresses with natural hair extensions donated by organically grown humans.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 250 locations blanket 36 states and eight countries?Planet Beach 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.
The Mystic Tan booth at Glo Tanning mists bodies with a formula that imbues skin with a sun-kissed glow. Additionally, the tanning salon offers UV tanning beds that prepare clients for special events such as a attending a reunion, going to a wedding, or populating a police lineup. The staff can recommend any of their tanning accelerators, bronzers, and lotions to help clients achieve the best possible tan.
