Though their tanning bed's bulbs are designed to last for up to 800 hours, the staff at The Equator replaces them after only 500–700 hours of use to ensure optimal UVB output. This is just one example of their dedication to providing the best possible tanning experience—another is the way in which they meticulously clean each tanning bed before and after each session. Aside from traditional UV tanning and sunless Mystic Tan offerings, they shrink unwanted bodily bulges with curve-contouring infrared-heat wraps. Infrared light goes to work, heating the subcutaneous layer of skin to sweep away unnecessary cellular deposits. Treatments burn through up to 1,400 calories an hour, dwarfing the results of other activities such as marathon running's 1,186 calories or marathon staring contest's two calories.
Tan Seekers not only has four levels of high-tech tanning beds and standup booths that bronze skin in as little as eight minutes, but also beds that do more than just tan. The Rejuvasun bed, for instance, combines tanning-bed lights with LED lights so it can simultaneously tan skin and boost collagen production to fight the signs of aging. Yet another bed, the Hydration Station, offers clients a steam-enhanced, hydrating sunless tan that dries without streaks. ?
Clients can top off their new looks with self-administered teeth-whitening sessions and, at certain locations, My-Lipo body-sculpting treatments. Complementing the tanning sessions are a variety of products, including a cooling lotion that feels almost as nice on freshly tanned skin as a hug from a snowman.
