Tanning Salons in West University Place

Guests who come inside any of Malibu Tan?s many locations are greeted with a handshake. Though that might seem like an old-school approach to customer service, Malibu Tan?s owner encourages it as a genuine way for his staff to connect with each client and provide them with customized services. For more than 15 years, Malibu?s friendly staffers have also connected with higher-profile clients?including the Houston Dymano Girls team?by helping them choose the best of each facility?s tanning options for their skin types. With UV tanning, regardless of whether a client prefers a supine or standup system, they are bound to get a strong tan, as all UV bulbs are changed 200 hours before they hit capacity or finally crack open and release a butterfly. There are also plenty of UV-free options such as VersaSpa sunless tanning, which darkens exteriors with a hydrating DHA-based solution. Each location also offers tan-enhancing products from Designer Skin and California Tan.

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 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 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 more than 30 locations in the Houston area, clients check in at marble-fronted reception desks to meet with a member of Darque Tan's International Smart Tan Network—staff trained to determine the best path to their bronzing goals. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.

As its name implies, The Great Skin Spa focuses on maintaining its clients' youthful radiance by offering treatments designed to improve the skin's overall tone and texture. These treatments range from customized, cleansing facials to services intended to make more dramatic differences in a person's appearance. Microdermabrasion sessions smooth away the fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage that can mar aging skin, while chemical peels can shrink oversized pores or even stimulate collagen production deep beneath the surface. Additionally, The Great Skin Spa helps clients achieve a sun-smooched look by offering airbrush tanning appointments.

Glissin's lineup of automated VersaSpa spray-tanning booths impart skin with a summery glow in less than 60 seconds using alternating doses of pigmented spray and drying breeze.
