LA Bronze Ultra Luxe Tanning Studios service tanners on the go and provides a respite for those looking to relax. Inside stand-up booths, clients remain on their feet while up to 60 bulbs create a 360-degree tan. Clients may also choose to stand up for a twelve-minute session inside a warm capsule or choose a bronze hue to have misted on their skin and settling into a sun-kissed glow in three hours. Those looking to enhance their tans can purchase power lotions, bronzers, accelerators, and cooling lotions from the salon’s collection of tanning products.
Baked Sunless Tanning’s certified airbrush technicians bronzify bodies of all types with USDA-approved organic airbrush-tanning solutions. Before each 10-minute spray-tan session (a $50 value/application), a complimentary toner gently exfoliates, moisturizes, and infuses the skin with a fruit extract to ensure a healthy look and a more sun-kissed scent. Next, a choice of one of five available shades of solution spritzes customers from head to toe, helping them achieve dark, natural-looking skin tones without the hassle of scaling a skyscraper to get closer to the sun. To keep summers semi-endless and divert a number of flirtatious compliments from the Liberty Bell, umber hues take up residence on human hides for anywhere from 7 to10 days.
Skin, hair, and nails all receive meticulous attention at the hands of Pileggi on the Square’s staff members, who showcase their skills with a menu of crown-to-toe treatments.

Donna Scott has been to the Oscars. Though she's not a thespian, the longtime medical aesthetician and certified laser skincare expert transported her handpicked products and know-how to the Academy Awards earlier this year, setting up shop at the Donna Scott Celebrity Spa Lounge. Scott, the recipient of InStyle magazine's Beauty Black Book distinction for the best facials in Philadelphia, delivers results by grounding her treatments in science. Where Philadelphia specifically lauds her glycolic peel with vitamin C, noting that it yields "remarkably brighter skin" by lifting away superficial cells. Scott has performed this and other rejuvenating treatments for celebrities at New York Fashion Week and the MTV Movie Awards, but she spends most of her time enhancing the natural beauty of everyday people, such as working moms who have reared spelling-bee champions. By customizing a suite of products for each individual, she treats and assuages skin issues such as rosacea, acne, and hyperpigmentation.
