In 2001, the first iTAN Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal?to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 30 Southern California franchises, each offering a slightly different assortment of teeth whitening, tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and self-serve spa offerings.
The Smart Tan?certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays, and self-administered spa treatments dispense relaxing red-light facials, infrared-heat bodywraps, and aqua massages.
The European facial at AHN Skin & Beauty is a microcosm of the spa's dedication to relaxation and beautification. In addition to rejuvenating complexions, it includes shoulder, neck, and scalp massages and an aromatherapy treatment with a fragrant hot towel fluffed in a flower-filled dryer. If you just want beauty services, you can schedule airbrush-tanning, eyelash-extension, and hair-and-makeup sessions. For pure relaxation, on the other hand, the spa's massage therapists give Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
After acquiring San Diego Tan in 2013, owner Daniel Cruz transformed the tanning salon into Vivid Tan, a place where clients can bask under the lamps of three different levels of beds. They can also apply the salon?s stock of Designer Skin and Australian Gold lotions to enhance their tans, soften their skin, and confirm that they?re not just holograms.
At Hollywood Tans, epidermises are enlivened with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. In application, Tanetics employs the expertise of an in-house skin specialist, who considers each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping to craft an ideal spectrum-shifting regimen. Five 10-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ vertical Hybrid booth leave the pelt polished with a 360-degree base tan that's preferable for afternoons at the beach or scandalous nights at the laundromat. Those interested in a UV-free tegument transformation can also opt for five glow-level to medium-level Mystic spray tans ($19–$25) that de-pale pasty pigment with misty coats of bronze that can last five–seven days. Grab today’s Groupon to restore your skin’s vibrancy and enjoy the added satisfaction of doing your part to put the sun out of business.
PETA approves of a tan-line-free complexion. It also approves of the vegan formulation that makes organic Sjolie sunless-tanning solutions, which is Sunburst Airbrush Tanning’s cornerstone product. Sunburst Airbrush Tanning’s staff uses the liquid sunshine for mobile and in-house airbrush tans to ensure clients can easily squeeze a tan into their schedules and never have to spend a week sallow-complexioned. The boutique tanning salon, nestled in Ocean Beach, staffs a team of spray-tan artists who each boast at least five years of experience that allows them to effortlessly sculpt and customize each tan with a compressor and airbrush system. Sessions average about 20 minutes to prepare, apply, and dry. The natural-looking, streak-free glow can last up to 10 days. Clients can choose to wear a bathing suit, go in their birthday suit from three years ago, or sport a pair of Sunburst Airbrush Tanning's disposable underwear.
At Naked Tan, obtaining glowing bronze skin is a comfortable experience no matter which method clients use to do so. If they choose to tan in one of the salon's five levels of tanning beds, they'll be treated to such comforts as misting jets of water to stay cool, built-in headphone jacks for entertainment, and special facial and shoulder tanning lamps to speed up the tanning process. And if they instead decide on a sunless tan, they enjoy privacy inside a Mystic Tan or VersaSpa booth, both of which feature automatic drying so clients don't feel sticky after the application. Often clients combine the two approaches into a "double dip" package?a bed tanning session immediately followed by a spray tan. The two-pronged approach particularly appeals to people who need to develop a tan quickly before a special event, such as a wedding or a big speech where they tell off those nitwits at the Nobel Committee once and for all.
