At Tan Republic, the staff doesn't just sit by while you tan—they advocate for responsible tanning. They carefully oversee the use of the Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths as well as the high-pressure tanning beds, controlling clients' exposure to UV rays and cosmetic tanning compounds. They also ensure that every tanner uses FDA-compliant protective eyewear, and prevent any one visitor from wearing multiple pairs and making everyone else feel uncool. They even enhance their clients' tans with six varieties of lotion, each designed to produce a different intensity of bronze.
The aestheticians of JChelz renew façades with modern skin treatments, including the Bio-Therapeutic face-lift, which was recently featured on Oprah. During the 90-minute skin treatment, skin specialists direct low doses of electrical current that imitate the body's own electrical impulses. Gentle electricity surges through faces to stimulate and tone muscles and render faces as smooth and taut as the head of a djembe. A series of treatments may be necessary for optimal results.
With many locations throughout Washington, Tan Republic outfits their salons with sleek, modern designs and earth-toned walls, filling private tanning rooms with a suite of melanin-conjuring machines. Guests can choose from Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths, high-pressure tanning beds, or jars full of fireflies that can be held against the skin for a natural glow. The salons also offer six varieties of lotion, each formulated for specific bronzing needs.
