Solar Planet's far-infrared massages team special light frequencies with acupressure contact to cleanse bodies and relieve pain. Buoyed by soothing melodies and aromatherapy scents, weary bodies slip through the curtain of the Abaton bed's dome to bask in tropical temperatures and conduct hand-puppet productions of Lawrence of Arabia. Rays of infrared light beam down as much as two inches into tense muscle fibers and stiff joints, as jade rollers contoured to match the spine's curves steadily iron out hidden wrinkles. In the heat of the moment, fluids can elope with toxins via perspiration, sped by increases in blood flow and a metabolism that doesn't approve of their union. Cool droplets from a chilled towel soothe hot hands and foreheads, and complimentary bottles of water replenish lost fluids.
The staffers at Solar Planet do more than lavish visitors with meticulously clean salons, indulgent extras, and the power to don a sun-kissed glow in less than 20 minutes. Each employee is Smart Tan certified, meaning they possess the training to design personalized tanning schedules for clients seeking an instant or lasting glow. The specialists also know every detail of Solar Planet’s fleet of tanning beds, which range from traditional beds to standup capsules, the style most conducive to tanning lawn flamingos. At some locations, custom airbrush tanning sessions enlist the help of a certified airbrush artist who highlights the body’s features with strategic strokes in a custom bronzing hue. Over its 25 years in business, Solar Planet also has sunless tanning booths, a stock of buyable bronzing lotions, and a variety of skincare services including facials and waxing.
