Inside the Smart Tan–certified Tanners Paradise, trained technicians help clients achieve golden skin in their tanning beds and spray-tan booths. Beds from Voyager, 32 Express, and Focus encapsulate tanners in UV light in order to build a natural-looking tan. Accelerators from such brands as Designer Skin and Luminary boost the effectiveness of tanning, while infusing skin with nutrients and moisture. Meanwhile, MagicTan booths spray an aloe- and DHA-infused solution from 40 nozzles, evenly bronzing skin without UV rays or industrial-smelling varnish.
Staffers at Sun City Tanning stock private rooms with state-of-the-art tanning beds and UV-free spray tanning booths that quickly impart clients with a sunless sun-kissed look. They consult with clients to plot plans of action, directing newcomers to gentler beds to build base tans, veterans to powerful beds that rapidly deepen tones, and geckos to dry rocks. UV-free spray tans quickly lend wintry skin a summertime sheen, and leg-tanning beds help slow-to-tan limbs catch up to neighboring skin tones.
Utopia Tanning & Spa bills "tanning" ahead of their other services with good reason: they offer three different approaches to getting a sun-kissed glow. In addition to traditional UV tanning booths, techs apply custom tans by hand or help clients into their Mystic spray-tanning booth. Dr. Gallacher, a certified dermatologist and laser surgeon, bolsters the spa's menu by providing more intense treatments through her own location in Danville. Meanwhile, on-site experts wax away fuzz, apply facials to ward off blemishes and wrinkles, and knead tense muscles. They also diminish the appearance of cellulite with red-light therapy booths and lengthen tresses with natural hair extensions donated by organically grown humans.
It looks a bit like a coffin from the year 3000, but the only thing being laid to rest in the Matrix L33 tanning bed is a pale complexion. Its high-pressure lamps emit the full spectrum of UVA and UVB light to bring out a golden base hue in as few as three sessions.
But tanning beds are just one of the tools the team at Down Under Tanning uses to get skin glowing. Airbrush tans produce natural-looking finishes, and Hempz tanning moisture—made from 100% hemp-seed oil—develops into a subtle bronze while keeping skin as hydrated as Poseidon's front lawn.
For nearly 20 years, the tan technicians at Soleil Tanning Salons have transformed pasty soul sacks into bronze living statues using UV and UV-free tanning techniques. Before tan sessions, friendly staffers educate patrons on how to get the most out of tans by using tanning lotions designed to stimulate melanin and extend the life of darker dermises. Soleil Tanning Salons are equipped with standing and horizontal tanning beds as well as UV-free MagicTan booths. The automated process typically takes 60 seconds and gives skin a golden glow thanks to micromists of custom tanner. No matter what bronzing method is chosen, tanners can rest easy knowing they will avoid burns associated with sunbathing atop radioactive beach towels.
