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 massage muscles, while teeth-whitening kits brighten chompers.
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 the Beach Tanning & Nail Spa?s technicians help patrons carve out a little time for self-pampering. The nail technicians graduated from Troutman's College of Manicuring, and performs nail services that cover the basics?manicures and pedicures?as well as more trendy treatments, such hand or foot Paraffin Treatments. For a longer-lasting shine you can also upgrade to Shellac/Gel Polish.

Inspired by the upscale tanning salons of South Beach and Los Angeles, Vivid Tan focuses on shading skin to a warm, coppery glow within 15 minutes. The bronzing experts invite customers to stretch out in beds or enter Mystic HD standup booths, whose sweeping airbrush darkens skin evenly, unlike sunbathing in a bikini made from swiss cheese. The salon’s trained professionals also tint figures during Norvell airbrush tans, nourish skin with products from Designer Skin, Swedish Beauty, and Australian Gold, and even brighten smiles with WhiteScience teeth-whitening treatments.
Sun Tan City’s trained tanning consultants help clients get bronzed via UV-free tanning booths and ergonomic tanning beds. Guests can schedule a single visit to touch up an existing tan, purchase a multivisit package to get a discounted rate, or become a member to take advantage of the salon’s 100% guarantee.
The Spa of Pravana pairs its popular tanning services with spa treatments to help clients look and feel great. Visitors can use one of the spa's UV-tanning beds for a sun-kissed glow in as little as 8 minutes or step into a standup booth for some quick spray-on color. Airbrush technicians are also available in the spa or on location to give clients a sunless tan with an FDA-approved solution instead of prune juice. Pravana also enlists the help of a board-certified doctor, licensed aesthetician, and certified massage therapist, so clients can supplement their freshly tanned physiques with youthful complexions, clear and soft skin, or relaxed muscles.
