Seven days a week, Darque Tan's clients can bronze their bodies with the more than 20 tanning beds and spray-tan booths lining each of Darque Tan’s 100 salons across the US. Each location's tanners are kept highly sanitized, undergoing a 50-point cleaning inspection by a separate cleaning staff to ensure all of the tanning beds, both stand-up and lie-down, and UV-free Mystic Tan booths remain in tip-top tanning shape. Clients new to tanning or bronzing up for a special occasion can work on a personalized tanning game plan crafted by one of Darque Tan’s knowledgeable staffers, each of whom must pass a detailed training program before hitting the salon floor. Most Darque Tan salons also boast a Kid Zone, which provides a safe haven for youngsters to wait, watching TV shows, reading a book, or using their imagination to grow a tail and chase it.
Planet Beach created the Contempo Spa concept. At the push of a button our guests and members enjoy a private spa experience at the fraction of the cost and in far less time then a traditional day spa. Our automated spa service are great for anyone with a busy life style and just wants time to themselves.
Convenience comes first at Celebrity Tanning, where a plethora of metro locations, extended hours, and a large lineup of tanning equipment ensure clients can achieve a sun-kissed glow with minimum fuss. Four tiers of UV beds offer escalating amenities that add to the comfort and efficacy of tanning sessions, incorporating extra facial tanners, aromatherapy, MP3 hookups, and inspirational posters of famous suns from other galaxies. For more immediate results, the salon’s automated Mystic Tan booth sends sweeping jets of misted bronzer over bodies to create a streak-free tan that lasts 7–10 days after one 60-second session. The staff of tanning specialists can help customers choose the right type of session for their skin or budget, answering any questions that may come up. Tan-prolonging lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and California Tan are also available to enhance the depth and duration of a tan without equipping clothes with UVA bulbs.
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 Factory, patrons slip from standup Saturn tanning beds or lie-down units, their skin warm and bronzed. The UVA-based high-pressure beds leave bodies with golden hues, and red-light-therapy beds hum as they generously spread a glow to stimulate collagen-producing fibroblasts during 15-minute sessions. As the light penetrates epidermal layers, it activates the body’s natural processes to reduce the appearance of fine lines, blemishes, and scars, restoring youthful sleekness and an ability to make convincing shadow puppets of dolphins. Those seeking to augment skin with sunless color step into a Mystic Tan or VersaSpa Spray booth and emerge 60 seconds later with fully toasted coats that last up to eight days.
