UV light from five levels of tanning booths and beds sets all-white interiors aglow at Total Tan's two locations in West Hollywood and Marina Del Rey. Designed by upscale brands such as Ergoline and Matrix, each bronzing chamber cossets clients with amenities including voice-guided operated controls, music, and cooling fans that pump air directly from Total Tan's sister salon in the Antarctic. Patrons can enhance sessions with lotions from brands such as California Tan and Australian Gold.
Alternatively, custom airbrush spray tans evenly coat skin with Infinity Sun solution, whose cocktail of DHA and pure botanicals leaves bodies bronzed for up to 10 days. Inside Total Tan's cellulite bike chamber, infrared lights work to smooth cellulite problem areas as the client pedals a stationary bike at 75% maximum heart rate in an attempt to escape the nearby stationary rottweiler.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
Spray La Vie expedites the beautification process with booths that darken and tighten skin in a matter of minutes. VersaSpa booths deliver sun-kissed color in 60 seconds, airbrushing skin with FDA-approved, sugar-based ingredients. To lock color into place, the booth’s automated dryers sweep over skin and evaporate residual moisture and beads of chocolate syrup. The BeautyLight booth aims to firm bodies with a combination of vibration and light. Its vibrating platform works out legs, hips, and buttocks as UV-free light attempts to activate the skin’s collagen production.
