To save beach lovers from harmful UVA and UVB rays, April Clark uses specially formulated sprays that react naturally with skin to produce dark, even tans in 15 minutes. Working inside a private room at Moda Salon, April swathes physiques in the DHA-based solution, which, in one session, can mimic the effects of five visits to a tanning bed or eight days spent soaking in a tub of sun tea.
Since 1994, The Tan Company's certified tanning consultants have harnessed the body-bronzing power of the sun and relocated it to customers' skin through a variety of vectors. Turn up your tone gradually with $50 in services and five levels of tanning available. The UV-averse and/or time-crunched, meanwhile, can step into a Mystic Tan booth to be evenly sprayed with a formulated mixture distilled from sunshine, beer-can condensation, beach volleyball sand, aloe vera, and other natural summertime ingredients. Unlike most prop-based comedy routines, the Mystic Tan process is over fast—noticeable color enhancement will occur within two to three hours. Many Tan Company locations offer custom airbrushing as well, in case the look you're going for is a Mystic Farmer Tan.
A non-invasive approach to folliclular deforestation and long-term reduction, laser hair removal uses a beam of concentrated light to penetrate the skin and uproot errant hairs without damaging the surrounding tissue or pores. Three treatments should send most areas well on their way to hairless harmony, though results can vary depending on skin and hair type. The friendly staff at American Electrolysis & Laser will be happy to consult with any clients regarding the anticipated number of treatments. Select areas, such as the face and bikini sector, can be completed in less than 10 minutes. See the website for more details about the process.
