Founder Todd Beckman opened the first Tan Company location, then called The St. Louis Tan Company, in 1994 with a pair of average-size sun retreats. After perfecting a superstore concept with multiple levels of tanning beds and an intrepid-reporter alter ego, Beckman's bronzing business now spans 53 locations in 8 states, including 39 locations in the St. Louis area. Todd ensures each salon keeps the same high standards that won the 2010 award for Best Tanning in St. Louis from CityVoter.
A knowledgeable staff maintains each bright, highly sanitized environment and stocks shelves with Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Designer Skin tanning products. The Tan Company also fashions UV-free tans with Mystic Tan standup booths that evenly spritz bodies with a paraben-free DHA solution infused with aloe vera.
When people think of you, the first thing that comes to mind is most likely your face, closely followed by your puggle, then by a really weird commercial they saw on Monday-night football. Make your mug memorably shiny-fresh and give your designer lapdog a run for its kibble with today's skin-restoring deal. For $30, you'll get a rejuvenating microdermabrasion treatment at First Impressions Skin Care, a $65 value. While egghead scientists maintain that microdermabrasion is a purely physical process where layers of dead skin are removed by gentle exfoliation, the pure of heart (and soon to be pure of face) know that there is a greater force at work.
Medical director Richard Bligh and his licensed staff at Advanced Laser Clinic subscribe to the idea that there is a correct tool for every job—even cosmetic ones. For starters, they have several lasers at their disposal, including the ProLipo Plus for body contouring, the LightSheer for laser hair removal, and the ClearScan for spider-vein removal. Underscoring a commitment to all realms of aesthetic concern, the staff also offers non-laser yet equally noninvasive services that range from facials to Botox injections. No matter which treatment patients choose, it’s preceded by a thorough consultation. Technicians use state-of-the-art before photos to analyze a patient's treatment plan and set realistic expectations. Once treatments are complete, patients can see their end result with before-and-after photos.

The staff at James Pearson Day Spa Salon takes care of their guests with an impressive selection of services that refresh the body and put minds at ease. They touch up exteriors with everything from nail and hair-removal treatments to hairstyling supported by computer imaging software. Among their other spa treatments, customized facials rehydrate dry skin using Yon-Ka brand products. The Yon-Ka line, which is used by Hollywood celebrities and has been manufactured in France for more than 50 years, specializes in phyto-aromatic skincare, meaning their products are derived from natural plant oils and extracts.
The Youthful Body Aesthetic Medical Spa provides a plethora of services for improving the skin's appearance. The mini-microdermabrasion takes 20–30 minutes and utilizes the suctioning power of aluminum oxide to vacuum away dead dermis and dirt. The chemical peel furthers rejuvenation with mild acidity, leaving skin more enlivened than a humming bird after bungee jumping. Alternately, demand satisfaction and duel frustrating furrows and worrisome worry lines by using a Botox pistol, sending them all back in time with one quick, minimally painful shot. Botox causes muscles to relax and smooths out wrinkles, with maximum benefits achieved in around 10 to 14 days.
Supervised by Dr. Gurpreet Padda, the staff at the Padda Institute beautify bodies with a lengthy list of procedures, including laser hair removal and cleansing facials. A russet-toned lobby with natural stone detailing houses guests before technicians lead them to a private treatment room to discuss procedures and cover pop songs on the rims of crystal goblets. Before leaving, clients can stock up on jane iredale mineral makeup or Padda's signature line of skincare products from the clinic's shelves.
