Executive’s cosmetic craftsmen overhaul weary muscles and dull skin with two kinds of tanning and five different massages. During four-minute spray-tanning sessions, airbrush artists customize California Tan formula to match each client's skin tone or favorite Charles Dickens character, evenly misting pallid epidermises in a coat of streak and UV-free sunshine. Bodies yearning for a year of tawny skin recline for 15-minute sessions inside Executive's tanning beds and booths. As UV lamps tint skin an appetizing golden brown, a fan within the bed quietly conjures breezes without drowning out each room's satellite radio or town crier.
Brad Olsen Tan has been bronzing bodies since 1965 and houses an army of tanning beds, available in six levels, as well as airbrush and Mystic Tan technology. The to-be tanned can choose to stand or lay in bronzing booths, letting UV lamps shine down on epidermises to infuse a glow as shiny and coppery as a collection of freshly polished pennies. Bronze-seekers can also opt to achieve sun-smooched skin in minutes with a Mystic Tan, which covers skin with a coppery coating of aloe-vera bronzers. This tan-ifying mist may take a few hours to become visible on skin, but the process is complete in less than one minute, or about the time it takes to say "Mystic Tan" backward.
Inside Ultimate Exposure Tanning Centers' 34 Chicagoland locations, a full lineup of UV- and spray-tanning equipment infuse skin with a healthy summer glow year-round. Individual sessions in the automated spray-tanning booths—such as VersaSpa—or UV beds gild bodysuits for nights on the town, and unlimited monthly packages fashion a continuous golden hue previously only available to sunbathing satellites. The salon stocks a variety of tan-accelerating lotions from Swedish Beauty, Australian Gold, and Designer Skin, which deepen bronze hues and moisturize skin to fashion a long-lasting radiance.
With its glossy black tiles and ornate furnishings, the interior of Total Image combines the relaxing atmosphere of a contemporary salon with classic baroque styling. This balance between old-fashioned and modern elegance finds a worthy counterpart in the salon’s UV-free tanning and cosmetic services, which aim to imbue skin with a timeless beauty. The staff of experienced beauticians approaches each 15-minute spray-tan application with an uncommon concern for detail, evenly covering the skin with a DHA-based solution derived from sugar and beets. Across the salon, a dedicated team of makeup artists summons pink lips, tinted lashes, and cherry-red tic-tac-toe boards on forearms.
Beyond Bronzed first started as a mobile service with a small clientele before its technicians graduated to a brick-and-mortar shop. Today they draw on 10 years of experience while spray tanning, using certified organic solutions that brim with natural anti-aging components. The technicians apply these concoctions by hand to avoid the unsightly streaks that often occur when they are applied by soulless robots.
Fox Valley Tanning & Massage does its best to leave nothing to chance. When lamps in a fleet of UV beds reach 60% of their lifespan, staffers swap them out—ensuring no tanning session will leave guests in the dark. They have also corralled a VersaPro spray tan booth, a VersaSpa booth, and Mystic HD technology, which prevent streaking, prep the skin for better color, and provide refuge for out-of-work Super Soakers. In addition to bronzing patrons, the staff soothes internal woes with five massage modalities and Formostar infrared body wraps.
