Humankind has been playing with fire for years; now we can harness the bronzing essence of the fiery sun in a gentle mist or a brilliant bulb, proving our dominance over the weak, inanimate solar system. Subvert the sun and eschew tan lines with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $30 worth of UV tanning, Mystic tans, and products at Hollywood Tans. Your Groupon is good at any of Hollywood Tans' radiant locations in Buckhead, Midtown, Toco Hills, and Roswell. There is no purchase limit, so get one for every layer of skin you own.
Hollywood Tans uses state-of-the-art technology to help you glow, regardless of bad weather or an inexplicable fear of beach towels. To get a UV-free sheen in a pinch, try a gentle and natural-looking Mystic instant tan (a $30 value) or one of Hollywood's lotions. The salon is also equipped with stand-up UV tanning booths, which offer total privacy so that you can eliminate tan lines without compromising your modesty to the paparazzi you hired to hound you. Stand-up booths do more than make you feel less lazy; they also work faster than traditional beds and make it much harder for hermit crabs to sneak up on you and pinch your nostrils. UV tans range in intensity and can be upgraded to high pressure for faster results and safer, 1% UVB light spectrums ($10–$20 for regular, $25 for high pressure).
In years past, technologically inferior societies valued powdery paleness and wish-granting leeches. These days, the modern mark of refinement is to doff one's coat and reveal a smooth, burnished, golden glow from head to toe. Today's Groupon will add depth to your outrageous claims that you've been sunning in the Bahamas instead of working diligently all summer.
This Groupon cannot be applied toward future EFT membership payments.

- The staff at the front desk is SO helpful and friendly. I am a very indecisive person, and one of the ladies helped me decide on the right lotion for me. She was honest and very patient. – Jen236
(STAND) UV & Spray Tanning
At (STAND) UV & Spray Tanning, tanners choose from a variety of traditional and UV-free bronzing methods. With an effect similar to tying the sun around a tetherball pole, standup UV booths feature 360-degree tanning, deepening skin tone during expedient 8- to 11-minute sessions. Patrons opting for sunless tanning can choose between automated Mystic Tan sessions with a choice of four shades of tan or custom Norvell airbrush treatments applied by trained technicians. Additionally, red-light-therapy sessions unclench faces from the grip of Father Time by reducing the appearance of fine lines and large pores, as well as boosting elasticity.
