The staff at Darque Tan learned the science of tanning through Smart Tan certification, which they rely on to design efficient, safe regimes for each client's skin type. Five levels of PCTan beds and booths can bronze skin with as few as 12 minutes of UV exposure while enveloping skin in cooling mist. Automated airbrush tanning in VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booths create even, natural-looking color that masks scars and stretch marks. Darque Tan's pursuit of convenience is further exemplified with business hours that span seven days a week, a minimum of 20 beds per location, and rec rooms where kids can read and watch TV. A crew of professional cleaners details each of the facilities according to a rigorous 50-point inspection and tips gleaned from reading Mr. Clean's LiveJournal.
Unlike regular saunas, SmartSweat's infrared saunas do not create a choking humidity or rely on black-market dragons for power. Instead, a gentle heat encourages sweating to discharge harmful toxins while boosting circulation and aiding weight-loss efforts. Available in fitness clubs and tanning salons across Texas, infrared saunas help keep clients healthy and relaxed while easing the discomfort caused by chronic pain.
Professionally trained in the art of ultraviolet light, the staff at Aruba Tan is full of experts when it comes to sunless tanning and infrared saunas. Armed with an array of lie-down tanning beds that range in intensity, technicians work with each guest to ensure that they tan safely based on their skin type and the extent to which they wish to mock ancient sun gods. In addition to the beds, techs also transform alabaster skinscapes into bronzed masterpieces with a variety of spray-tanning services. During these treatments, they douse skin in a steady stream of instantly drying solutions that adhere to superficial proteins in the skin and downshift the hues. Beyond tanning services, the studio also helps guests detoxify, ease pain, and boost weight-loss programs with their namesake smartsweat infrared-saunas, which send beams of heat energy deep into skin to help mend a range of bodily issues.
Across five locations, the technicians at Tan It All point patrons in the direction of up to five levels of UV beds or three types of sunless-tanning technology. The staff can perform a complimentary skin-type analysis and recommend a custom tanning schedule in UV-B or high-pressure UV-A beds for optimal results. Guests seeking quick coverage can opt for a VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booth session or a custom spray tan applied by an experienced airbrush artist.
