The Smart Tan–certified team at Tan de Soleil assists clients in getting the best out of their experiences by keeping immaculate tanning studios stocked with modern tanning beds and spray-tan booths. Before customers slip into a KBL lay-down bed or a Sun Capsule VHR stand-up unit, the staff provides them with sanitized protective eyewear and towels. They also change the bulbs in those beds regularly to keep them at optimal tanning efficiency.
For UV-free tans, the crew educates its guests about the use of VersaSpa and Mystic Tan spray-tanning booths for custom tans with solutions that moisturize and nourish skin. These tanning booths can gild tanners in about 60 seconds, but for those who wish to take their time, the studios come equipped with a vanity area. In there, guests lounge and use supplied nail files, hairspray, gel, and beauty products to get ready for the rest of their days. The space also allows for phone conversations so customers don’t have to feel intrusive when making personal calls or leaving in-your-face messages on King Midas’s voicemail.
Photos of beach scenes and bright flower arrangements greet clients as they walk into The Tanning Studio’s waiting area, creating a tropical vibe that gets guests eager for their own sun-kissed adventures. Beyond the lobby, three tiers of UV beds await to help bodies acquire a new swimsuit-ready shade, keeping them comfortable with air conditioning, cooling ventilation systems, or a 22 mph fan that mimics the sweat-preventing effects of an ocean breeze or a ride on the back of Evel Knievel's tricycle. Automated Mystic Tan spray-tanning booths cater to sensitive skins, providing a custom hue that safely adheres in 60 seconds; the salon’s lineup of tanning accelerators helps clients boost their bronze factor in less time while keeping skin moisturized to prevent peeling and over-exfoliation.
Grace Laser Skin Care?s Vectus laser features a large spot size and uniform beam profile for quick and thorough hair removal, as well as a Skintel Melanin Reader, which helps tailor treatments to each client?s skin type. This laser-based technology, however, would do nothing but intimidate British secret agents without the intervention of the highly trained staffers, who use it to reduce unwanted body hair on the lips, bikini area, and legs, as well as diminish age spots and sun damage on the skin. To put the finishing touches on newly smoothened appearances, they also offer LED teeth whitening with FDA- and CSA-compliant gels.

After over eight years of business, this tanning center has remained stocked with high-powered tanning beds and booths?even their entry-level beds are considered "megabeds"?in order to get the same tanning results as traditional beds, but with less ultraviolet exposure. The voice-activated open-air AutoBronzer mists clients with a choice of three shades that last for up to seven days without maintenance, finally proving to the sun that you've moved on. Before sessions, clients may peruse the salon's glass cases stocked with indoor-tanning lotions or watch the flat-screen television.
Luminous Skin Care limits its menu to two aesthetic services: laser hair removal and microdermabrasion. The studio?s trained technicians channel all of their expertise into these areas to ensure that their clients? skin stays as smooth as a saxophone dipped in chocolate. They target follicles with both light and thermal energies to safely and permanently eliminate hair from practically anywhere on the body. When dull complexions need a boost, they wield crystal-tipped microdermabrasion wands that gently exfoliate to reduce wrinkles and age spots.
