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.
Hair can't cut itself without opposable thumbs, and it lost those during the Pleistocene epoch. Fortunately, Fiesta Hair and Tanning's stylists are poised to pick up the slack. Clients can opt for a simple bang trim, an elaborate updo, or a full-on pampering package with a haircut, conditioning treatment, and bold color application. Specialty tanning services are also available to help modern homo sapiens cultivate sun-kissed skin.
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.
As its name suggests, 24-7 TAN's doors are always open, helping customers to conveniently work some rejuvenating photoskinthesis into their busy schedules. Red collagen lamps outfit cutting-edge beds, bathing skin suits with targeted wavelengths designed to trigger the body's natural healing mechanisms and test traffic-signal reflexes. During each 15-minute red-light therapy session, scarlet rays penetrate skin of all types and tones to stimulate blood flow and collagen production, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow's feet, and cellulite. Like finding the proper time to tell a joke at a criminal trial, the success of red-light therapy relies on repetition, so multiple sessions on a regular treatment schedule will provide the most noticeable results.
Body Spa Salon's talented staff of beauty boosters bedecks guests from the neck up with a variety of salon services within its stylish, 20,000-square-foot environs. Body Spa Salon's Glitz n' Lash mink extensions adorn eye blinds in a variety of lengths and thicknesses, which can be used for creating rich, feathery lashes built to outlast tumultuous swims, slumbers, and full-contact staring contests. A skilled aesthetician fuses the natural-looking, curved extensions atop existing peeper pelts during an application process that lasts around two hours. The eye-accentuating treatment eschews the need for additional optic enhancers, such as mascara, eye black, or hockey masks. Each extension's livelihood depends on when the client’s eyelashes naturally fall out (typically 60–90 days), and touch ups every two to three weeks are recommended.
