At Malibu Tan, skilled epidermal artists add sun to snowy skinscapes with advanced Matrix tanning beds and VersaSpa sunless-tanning booths. The Matrix bed encapsulates bodies in the glow of UVA rays, which delve deep into the skin to darken melanin cells with shady pigmentation and an interest in black magic. During the roughly 12-minute treatment time, clients repose within the tech-savvy pod, which hosts such comfort-inducing accoutrements as air-conditioning and a built-in radio. For a sunless sheen and moisturized skin, the VersaSpa automaton mists patrons with a chosen degree of bronze inside an open-air booth that draws out any airborne spray for comfortable breathing. A gentle fan then dries bodies with a refreshing breeze, locking in sun-kissed looks and leaving skin as radiant as a desert wanderer in a tinfoil suit for up to seven days.
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. 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.
