Like a good luxury car, SunLounge's UV tanning beds come with plenty of optional features: some models feature cooling mists, aromatherapy, and footrests, while others have climate-control systems and roomy, open-air design combined to combat that penned-in feeling. These high-end beds share studio space with sunless tanning systems, which feature Novell airbrush sprays in traditional or quick-dry formulas. Bulbs or no bulbs, tanning sessions unfold in a studio outfitted with handsome hardwood floors, geometric light fixtures, and modern acrylic furniture. Regulars are welcome to stash their tanning lotions at the front desk, ensuring they don't wind up lost or stolen by that vain neighborhood alligator.
At Do Beaming White, professional technicians apply dental-grade hydrogen peroxide gel to whiten teeth, making sure to protect gums and enamel from any sensitivity. When activated by a high-powered blue LED light, the peroxide contained in the gel bleaches teeth and removes stains to ensure that clients' teeth finally outshine the whites of their eyes. Take-home kits help amplify whiteness with five to seven touch-up applications spread throughout the course of a year. A combination of the in-office whitening treatment and the take-home kit provides optimal results.
Do Beaming White also offers amenities to enhance guests' teeth-whitening experience, including audio cables to plug in personal mp3 players and Wi-Fi. Ample underground and upper-level parking and flexible hours accommodate clients seven days a week.
