The aestheticians at Southern Tan and Wrap boost confidence with beauty-enhancing services such as airbrush tanning, facials, and microdermabrasion.

Salon Tropics' technicians, who are Smart Tan certified, apply spray-tans and oversee UV beds, imparting bodies with a beachy glow throughout the winter months and preparing them for special occasions. Thirteen UV beds—divvied up into five levels of tanning intensity—line the salon where clients bronze bodies in a lay-down Sun Kissed bed or embrace the more intense rays and bedtime stories of a standup Sun Struck capsule. Being the only salon to offer VersaPro in southeast Baton Rouge, the automated booths spray a pigmented solution evenly over the skin In less than five minute for a natural-looking, streak-free bronze that lasts for up to ten days. Salon Tropics friendly staff can recommend an array of lotions, shower gels, and tan-extending moisturizers—from such brands as Designer Skin, Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Ed Hardy—that are designed to help darken and lengthen the life of tans.
Being fair-skinned, Jennifer Cook learned the hard way about how her skin would react to the UVA and UVB rays of a tanning bed. After one bad experience, she struck out on a quest to discover the best sunless tanning sprays and lotions—ones that would leave skin bronzed and streak-free. After much trial and error, she discovered Bronze Body Products. She was so satisfied with the results that she decided to take her enthusiasm to the next level. Already certified as an airbrush technician, Cook opened up her own shop, Love My Tan. There, she now focuses exclusively on sunless tanning, misting her clients with the organic, paraben-free solution that develops into a deep, even tan.

Palm Beach Tan's Smart Tan–certified staff infuses road-weary body bark with youthful beauty using sunless spray tanning and red-light therapy. The patented Mystic HD System bronzes bods via a gentle, UV-free mist in the privacy of an individual chamber. After skin starts with a caressing primer from flowing heated air, automated airbrush sprayers then spritz the body with polarized tanning particles, whose magnetic attraction to skin ensures an evenly distributed glow free of streaks, creases, and the neon remnants of used rave glow sticks. Maximum bronze is in effect after 24 hours, but each tan will last up to six days. Mystic's tans are paraben free and packed with skin playmates such as açai and green tea to aid pelt health as well as appearance.
