With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
The accommodating staff at Rio Tan preserves their visitors' bronze-ability and comfort with standup tanning booths that shine 360 degrees of UV-light, sunless spray-tanning options, private rooms, and complimentary refreshments. During a custom airbrush-tanning session, a skilled technician evenly applies a mist of tanning solution by hand so skin doesn't appear orange and streaky, like carrots shot out of a T-shirt cannon. Alternatively, the All-Inclusive package resurrects waning complexions with standup UV booths, up to eight Mystic spray or airbrush tans, and unlimited use of the Rio 42, 54, 60 and high-pressure booths. The booths come in variety of strengths, including high-pressure bronzing that tans skin without forcing visitors to impersonate mummies' pets. The package also includes red-light therapy (with a requirement of 24 hours between sessions), which can even out skin tone, reduce wrinkles, and shrink pores.
Solar Eclipse Tanning Salon doesn’t hide its bold intentions in the shadows. The salon’s staff members envision “putting the sun out of business,” a hyperbolic mission that they accomplish, in part, with four types of UV-tanning beds. Unlike the sun, all of these beds are regularly sanitized and outfitted with fresh bulbs to ensure a glowing base tan or a dark bronze coat.
Not content to merely mimic the sun’s rays, the salon takes a different route entirely with a Mystic Tan booth that spritzes the body with a UV-free bronzing formula. This formula comes in two shades, each of which lasts for up to seven days with proper care. In a red-light-therapy bed—also free of UV rays—therapeutic light repairs skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and render tattooed treasure maps more legible.
Planet Beach offers both UV and UV-free faux sunshine. Conventional tanning, either in a vertical or horizontal bed, creates a healthy, glowing skin sheen using the powers of UV. For an aerosoled UV-free solution, Planet Beach's Mystic tan feeds your body into a standing spray chamber. In just a few seconds of spritzing, you'll emerge with a deep, natural-looking tan that's streak free, didn't produce melanin, and lasts up to a week.
The clientele at 24hr Tan stay thoroughly bronzed with a range of tanning beds and custom spray-tanning services. The shop's beds are available in three different intensity levels that gradually coax skin shades from pale to gold, whereas resident airbrush artists use a natural formula to impart spray tans that last up to one week.
With the time it takes to soak up the sun's rays or make it out to the tanning salon, getting a deep summer tan can be hard on a tight schedule. That’s why The Heat Tanning tries to make beautifying routines a little easier by offering salon hours that extend into the late evening and mobile airbrush tans that let clients darken in the comfort of their own homes. Wherever they decide to take advantage of the service, airbrush clients select from the salon’s three shades of Norvell HVLP tanning solutions, which can mimic anything from a long day at the beach to a long century in a sepia photograph. The salon also features four tiers of UV beds furnished with varying numbers of bulbs to speed up and strengthen tan accrual.
