With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
When beautifying clients at Luminous Aesthetics, owner and certified medial aesthetician Linda Zollo’s first priority is their comfort, whether she’s performing waxes or spray tans. Instead of using painful waxes, she removes unwanted hair with the gentle, botanical Nufree solution, which doesn’t stick to the skin, unlike a three-legged race partner after a three-legged marathon. She also performs a number of chemical peels, which help combat acne, fine lines, and wrinkles to restore healthy skin.
At Simply Sun Tanning, the Smart Tan–certified staff directs clients toward their ideal tanning solutions, whether in tanning beds or spray-tan booths. Five levels of tanning beds—including Ultra-level beds free of UVB light—allow guests to customize the hue of their tans. VersaSpa automatic tanning booths gild skin with a choice of light, medium, or dark solutions. The session ends with the client standing in front of a jet turbine to dry and set the tanning solution.
