Since opening in 1998, Tans To Go continues to bronze its guests with a selection of equipment that includes six tanning beds and custom airbrush tanning. UV-based tanning comes in both bed and booth form, embedded with radiant bulbs of up to 400 watts that target the body and face. Resident airbrush artists imbue hides with a tanning mist that moisturizes the skin as it does its best impersonation of the sun. Before customers choose a bronzing method, Tans To Go's friendly, helpful staff can help make the decision easier with advice and answers to tanning questions.
Kim Huggins, the talented nail technician at Leah Nickie Advanced Aesthetics, channels a quarter of a century of experience into each perfectly polished pedicure. The 75-minute pedicure ($45 value) pampers paws with all-natural lotions, salves, and nontoxic nail polish. The spa safari begins with a foot soak in a warm, aromatic bath of Dead Sea salt crystals that calm the nervous system, combat fluid retention, increase circulation, and strengthen nails, enabling pinkie toes to lift pregnant elephants with ease. After tweezing away overgrown cuticles, a toe farm technician clips and shapes nails, then exfoliates expired skin from the base of human pedestals. Ankles, calves, and feet receive a soothing massage to melt away stress and toes get a new paint job with formaldehyde-free Zoya nail polish, available in a jellybean jar of colors.
In her 10 years as an aesthetician, Nan Kushel has come to favor all-natural products to keep her clients away from toxins and contaminants. Nowhere is that more evident than in her sugaring hair-removal treatments. A natural alternative to waxing, sugaring uses a paste comprising sugar, water, and lemon. This paraben- and dye-free paste decreases skin irritation while removing hair from the underarms, legs, and anywhere else that hair may grow. Traditional waxing using high-quality Cirepil wax is also available.
The all-natural theme continues as you peruse Nan's menu. Her teeth-whitening treatments turn stained teeth as white as a minimalist poet's Word document with an organic plant-based gel from DaVinci and a blue-light laser. She artfully tints lashes and brows with all-natural henna and rejuvenates skin with custom alginate masks during her facials.
Licensed aestheticians Leslie and Tiffanie of Birch Skin Studio hone in on visages with rejuvenating aesthetic services backed by Image skincare products. The experienced duo begins beautifying journeys with complimentary consultations, examining skin types and client concerns before sanding down the mugs' rough patches with microdermabrasion sessions. The shop uses crystal-free microdermabrasion, and expression makers are given thorough cleansings before the noninvasive device sends controlled granules storming across epidermises, whisking away dead skin cells and No Face Painting signs plastered into the cheekbones. They round out the 30-minute treatment with layers of moisturizer and sunscreen that soothe and smooth skin so that no downtime is required.
With more than 10 tanning beds bronzing hides at three varying levels, as well as the automated VersaSpa spray-tan booth, Aspen Tan’s team can customize tans to suit each individual’s skin types and tanning needs. To further beautify the body’s largest organ, they also offer the skin- and muscle-toning Beauty Angel that administers light energy to increase circulation while relieving minor aches and pains.
