At Sol Y Luna Tanning's three locations, sunless-tanning experts unveil a varied collection of body-bronzing apparatuses and direct visitors toward tanning products that jive with each person's skin type. The shop's standup and lie-down tanning beds from brands such as Solarix, Sun Up II, and Malibu darken epidermal expanses with UV rays, and spray-tan booths envelop bodies in a mist of UV-free tanning formula that doesn't streak, unlike unencumbered window panes running freely through the rain. Sol Y Luna Tanning's ornate chandeliers shed light over well-organized displays of lotion that guests can pluck to maintain their skin and newly earned tans.
The technicians at LaserDerm MedSpa & Wellness Center wield lasers to smooth and contour bodies. They specialize in laser hair removal to permanently reduce fuzz on bikini lines, underarms, and toes. To whittle down excess curves, they activate a Zerona device that uses low-level lasers to cause fat cells to release their contents as clients lie down and relax, read, or listen to the Tuvan throat singing playing on their iPod. Additionally, the center offers treatments for skin issues such as lines, scars, or sun damage.

After they're done, the staff shows equal love for the environment, as they recycle and use green receipts and cleaning products.
