Inside Extreme Sun Capsule, customers can easily get a sun-kissed glow in UV tanning beds that span multiple levels of intensity, including 15-minute magnum beds. Unlike low-pressure tanning beds, which require 10-15 visits for a base tan, high-pressure beds save time by only requiring 3-4 sessions that last approximately 12 minutes each. The 360-degree UVA high-pressure bulbs used in each bed's open design also help to decrease the risk of burn in a comfortable space. The salon offers spray tanning, too, in Mystic Tan booths that deliver a custom glow in minutes. After sessions, a cornucopia of lotions helps customers prolong the life of their tan.
