In 2001, the first iTAN Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal?to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 30 Southern California franchises, each offering a slightly different assortment of teeth whitening, tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and self-serve spa offerings.
The Smart Tan?certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays, and self-administered spa treatments dispense relaxing red-light facials, infrared-heat bodywraps, and aqua massages.
Aesthetician and Skin Boutique founder Danielle Sladek wants to follow her clients home. She won?t try to climb into their cars, but she and her team of continually educated skin therapists make sure that every customer leaves understanding how best to treat their skin type between spa visits. During face-centric treatments, the spa's weapons of choice are Dermalogica products, which are made in the United States, never tested on animals, and won't attract bears with their scent. Past the spa?s glitzy chandeliers, plum-colored accents, and ornate wallpaper, guests relax in private treatment rooms as staff pamper their skin with both classic and high-tech procedures.
The friendly and upbeat staff at Hollywood Tans Santee specializes in helping clients achieve sun-kissed tans year-round. Filled with a vast array of Hollywood Tans' latest tanning beds, the tanning salon allows guests to choose from multiple levels and different types of tanning methods. In addition to traditional beds, those who want to avoid UV-rays or who are allergic to light bulbs can let one of the studio's technicians provide a personalized glow with customized airbrush spray tans.
Spa director Marie Monet, an industry veteran with more than 30 years of beautification experience, begins each facial with a skin analysis so she can customize treatments to individual skin types. Oxygen facials infuse the skin with oxygen harvested from astronaut suits, inspiring cellular renewal and boosting collagen production, and sunless-tanning sessions cover bodies with DHA-infused Fantasy Tan airbrushing products. Herbal body treatments harness the power of natural botanicals such as seaweed to help slim and detoxify bodies. The herbal cellulite body cleanse blends 27 minerals and herbs to help boost the lymphatic system and facilitate disposal of excess fat cells for slimmer, smoother silhouettes. Massage modalities such as thai massage with acupressure help relax muscles after an afternoon of playing catch with a bowling ball.

A freshly bronzed complexion is often evidence of time spent at an exotic locale—for SD Glow clients, it's often a sign that they spent the day at home.
