Planet Beach Spray & Spa
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Spray & 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.
As part of their tanning services, Planet Beach Spray & Spa has incorporated the help of Mystic Tan and Sun Angel. Mystic Tan is an automated tanning system that has helped over 50 million people tan their skin to their desired shade. Mystic Tan's technology leaves no orange marks and leaves skin odor free. Sun Angel is a more traditional tanning bed. Air-conditioned beds come equipped a sound system that can connect to your MP3 player or smartphone and are fully controllable, allowing customers to receive a full-body tan that can meet their desires.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages with lengths including individual sessions, 30- or 90-day packages, and six-month or one-year packages. 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.
