The staff at Alternative Tan Spa respects all aspects of individuality, from your personal skin type to your musical tastes. They dole out tips for tanning schedules and products that will suit each client, ever mindful of safety precautions for different dermal needs. Inside the spa rooms, clients can load a favorite CD into the stereo before visiting their chosen booth or bed, basking afterward in the breezes from private cooling systems and primping at available vanity areas.
The spa's tanning equipment ranges from Level 1 Tan America beds to standup spray-tanning booths, which take less than one minute to coat bodies in a coppery sheen that can last up to 10 days. As beds increase in level, their amenities become more advanced: Level 3 Starflight beds feature facial lamps, and Level 4 Cayenne and S-Class beds refresh physiques with built-in misting systems. The open Sunboard bed bronzes skin without enclosing customers beneath a lid, finally enabling them to high-five their own feet when they achieve even coverage.
Eyelashes are one of Tiffany Baustert's specialties. The licensed aesthetician painstakingly applies NovaLash eyelash extensions to help women looking to fill out depleted lash lines, cut down on their morning makeup routines, or walk down the aisle without their tears of joy sending streaks of mascara down their cheeks. It's all part of what Baustert sees as her primary mission as an aesthetician: to make women feel better about themselves.
To the same end, Baustert offers several services designed to address blemishes. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels can lessen scarring and damage left by acne and other skin woes, and Baustert's newly mastered microneedling technique promotes the body's natural collagen production. Baustert has spent much of her life in and around the beauty industry and is proud of the clinical precision and clear, medical-grade results her work can achieve.
Inside their studio, the nail artists at Pink Nails and Spa expertly tackle careworn hands and feet with pampering mani-pedis and OPI polishes. Before applying these colorful shades, staff can groom hands and feet with hot stones, specialty masks, and massages while customers recline in the customer-controlled massage chairs. The shop also specializes in Shellac polish, which maintains a chip-free façade for up to two weeks after application so clients can immediately start wearing their brillo-pad mittens after sessions.

Deeper Than Skin Massage Therapy gets to the root of muscular maladies with a slate of relaxing spa services and professionally-administered massages. A licensed massage therapist begins the 90-minute mango mandarin body treatment by applying an exfoliating treatment to the entire body, then uses warm, moist towels to remove the solution and refresh the skin. Afterwards, a full body butter massage is performed to baste unseasoned skin and create a smoother, more tasteful texture. The warmth package combines a full body hot stone massage with a full body relaxation massage, and uses volcanic stones and warmed oils to melt tension and smelt stress. The two-hour treatment concludes with a cocooning that transforms bodies into butterflies and allows for a peaceful moment to reflect on pupal pasts.
The sun shines year round within the beds and booths of the Tanning Zone, where tanning experts bestow skin with natural-looking bronze hues courtesy of UV or Mystic spray tans. To ensure that their Ultrabronz, Puretan, and Celsius 32 beds operate at optimal efficiency, they change the bulbs at half-life—just one example of their dedication to providing the best possible tanning experience. The Mystic spray-tan system is another; after guests step into a warm tanning booth, an airbrushed V.I.P. solution gilts their bodies from head to toe in under a minute. The staff’s focus on promoting healthy skin has compelled them to also offer red-light therapy, which may restore damaged skin, stimulate the growth of collagen, and cause fast-approaching cars to stop before impact.
The trained staff at Ashley Lynn's Tanning welcomes first-time and returning clients to quality bronzing beds and UV-free VersaSpa tanning booths. The full-body and facial bulbs in tanning beds of various levels speed skin to all-over darkened shades in minutes without the hassle of canning sunbeams for the winter. Staff members swap out each lamp halfway through its lifetime, ensuring tanners won’t endure weakened wattage during their session. Alternatively, the studio's VersaSpa spray-tan booth comforts tanners with an open design and an air-filtration system as they customize their 10-minute sessions by selecting either clear spray-tanning or bronzer-tanning treatment. Each treatment achieves maximum color after 8 hours, and the booth also helps to moisturize skin.
