Facelogic's spa services dispel the specious, sophomoric ad hominems of stress, homeliness, and other facial fallacies that can dull one's glow. The Facelogic Signature Facial will lovingly wake up your slumbering skin through 50 minutes of deep cleansing, exfoliation, steaming, and mask therapy ($49 at discounted price). For something more revitalizing, oxygenating, or de-wrinklifying, try an Elite Facial such as the Radiance Oxygen Facial, which brings a glow to even the most Gollumy skin with exfoliating buffing beads and a mask rich with encapsulated oxygen. Facelogic's series of naturally derived skin peels (discounted $20–$30), on the other hand, will undo years of playing the MMORPG known as Real Life. Finally, achieve optimum smoothness with facial waxings for the very hairy caterpillars on your face ($15 for brows, $12 for lips or chins at member prices) or the very hairy sea cucumbers on other shaggy parts of the body, such as the palms and the undersides of feet.
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.
Licensed waxing professionals perform hair-removal services that ready legs for the beach or upper lips for high-profile harmonica solos. The team also offers soothing infrared-light therapy and teeth-whitening treatments.
Both a mobile tanning service and a one-stop bronzing hotspot, Rock & Sol imbues clients’ skin with natural, deeper color without using harmful UV rays. During 10- to 15-minute tailored airbrush sessions, technicians first custom-blend a solution to match each client’s current and desired skin tones. Next, a technician applies two coats evenly over the body, resulting in a coppery glow that, like the Statue of Liberty's original bronze finish, lasts approximately 7–10 days. The odorless, organic, and alcohol-free solution employs an FDA-approved sugarcane derivative called DHA, which reacts with epidermal cells to darken their natural pigment. In addition to their storefront, Rock & Sol also operates a mobile tanning service, journeying to homes, offices, or aquariums in the Austin area to tan gaggles of friends or help albino goldfish finally fit in at school.
A recent addition to the Austin community, X-Treme Tan pairs its bronzing services with a mission to educate locals on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. An array of tanning beds ranging from levels 1–5 are available to guests and geared toward various skin types and goals. The Level 5 Matrix basks bodies in the maximum 33,00 watts of of sun-imitating power and is the only machine of its kind in the area. Each bed and stand-up pod graces torsos and limbs with color in sessions that last 20 minutes or less. For those who prefer to stay vertical, a Level 4 Quantum standup booth shades skin in 10 minutes with a fleet of 51 refractor bulbs. Light-shy folk and Greta Garbo impersonators will favor custom spray tans. The formulas by Norvell Skin Solutions offer clients a choice of different shades to match their skin's undertone and are applied by Cedar Park's only Norvell-certified airbrush technicians. X-Treme Tan has won a number of accolades, being described as "best of the best" by HillCountryNews.com, and "Best of ATX" by K.V.U.E. News..
The sun beats down on Austin throughout the year, but savvy locals know that they don't need to bask in its rays to achieve a rich tan. Bronzed Glo Airbrush Tanning's technicians bronze skin with a Sol Potion tanning system that they can apply in-house or on location. They use a handheld device to spray a fine mist of UV-free solution across the skin, creating a natural glow without the sun's skin-damaging side effects. To extend the lifespan of their tans, the technicians offer a range of add-ons. One of these is a pretan exfoliation spray that balances the skin's pH levels; another is a double dip that adds a second coat of tanning spray or chocolate.
