Located inside Velocity Sports Performance Center, B Bronze Tanning's UV beds and spray-tan booths evenly gild the skin. The sunless Mystic tanning system's spray-on solution produces a natural-looking tan that lasts about a week and works for any skin tone. Bed or standup booths transmit ultraviolet light, warming and browning the skin for 8–20 minutes. B Bronze Tanning supplies protective eyewear for clients who opt for UV tanning, though clients must bring their own silk parasols.
Summer Breeze offers high-quality body bronzing and spa services in a sleek, relaxed, and trendy atmosphere. Clients can repose as they soak up the rays in UV beds or enhance their natural skin tone with a UV-free, airbrush tanning alternative. In addition to boasting traditional bronzing services, Summer Breeze pampers guests with an array of spa services, including infrared body wraps, facials, and microdermabrasion. This 22-room salon's recent aesthetic expansion has kept technicians brightening beauty beyond the surface for all guests.
Before hitting the beach, clients flock to Endless Summer Tanning Centers to bestow golden hues onto their limbs or help their efforts to shed a few pounds. The boutiques' high-end tanning equipment lends comely color to skin, distributing rays throughout the whole body or solely on the legs to match gams with tan faces for more convincing sawing-a-body-in-half magic tricks. Customers can diminish cellulite with Beauty Angel red-light therapy, which boosts collagen and the regeneration of skin cells. Staffers also aid in readying bodies for the beach with Formostar body wraps, which use infrared heat to stimulate metabolism. A single 50-minute session can blast up to 1,400 calories via the wrap's nonallergenic, silicone material.
Though she's never met them, licensed aesthetician Linsey Shoop works closely with a team of divers. These divers harvest seaweed from the ocean that's preserved by Repêchage, and used by Linsey during her anti-aging four layer facial treatment. Linsey places the vitamin-enriched seaweed over complexions, and while Linsey keeps an eye out for starfish stowaways, the plant helps to nourish and smooth out the skin.
This seaweed treatment is just one of Linsey's skincare services. She customizes facials to address specific skin conditions such as acne and dryness, and wields a diamond-tip tool to exfoliate skin during microdermabrasions. She can also lengthen lashes with NovaLash extensions, wax away unwanted hair, and impart bronze glows with Sjolie tanning products that are vegan and paraben-free, which means they are free of animal products and crocodile tears.
An avid beach-goer and tanning enthusiast, Island Girl Spray Tans owner Janette Tomlinson stopped bathing under the sun after a dermatologist identified a precancerous spot on her face. In search of a healthy alternative, Janette found custom spray tanning, and she's been hooked ever since. She parleyed her new passion into a business, imbuing clients with streak-free, natural-looking spray tans that can last up to a week.
The skin specialists at Smart Xposure want clients to get tan, but they don’t want them burn. In their experience, many clients think looking pink after tanning confirms they got color. The staff warns that those burns, no matter how light, lead to skin problems later in life. So, Smart Xposure opts for safer tanning methods, handpicking bulbs from Thomas Edison’s private collection for UV beds that are up to 99.7% UVB-free and designed to keep clients at a pace of only two to three tans per month. Mystic and organic custom airbrush tans eliminate UV exposure entirely, evenly coating bodies with natural-looking color. Smart Xposure infuses its client-conscious practices with a dose of fun, enlivening the lobby with a plasma-screen television. Upbeat music spills into each room through a DMX sound system, and modern decor evokes the feel of a nightclub without the unpleasant ordeal of having to sweet-talk a bouncer into letting you into the bathroom.
