The staff of tanning technicians at Cactus Club Tanning Salon draws upon training and certification from Smart Tan to gild skin as safely and effectively as possible. Epidermis enhancers evenly mist skin with a personalized solution to summon shimmering bronze like a frustrated alchemist. Two months of unlimited UV-tanning sessions let patrons bask in the sunny warmth of Klassik beds. Employees carefully monitor and schedule exposure times according to each client's skin type to minimize the risk of suffering a painful sunburn or becoming a comfortable habitat for iguanas. Patrons may choose to upgrade to standup units or medium-pressure beds for an additional fee.
Tiptoe into Lemon Drop's quaint and quiet confines for a secret rendezvous with one of the spa's relaxation professionals. Lemon Drop dons a full-length shawl of luxurious services, including European-style facials, therapeutic massages, facial and body waxing, and more. The lemon drop facial ($75 for 75 minutes) is the most popular treatment; in addition to deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and application of a custom-blended mask, this treatment includes a light tweeze and trim for unwanted facial fuzz and an aromatic shoulder, neck, décolleté, hand, and arm massage. If grounding your face from TV has gotten you nowhere, enlist the expert help of the blissfully blemish-free facial to effectively reprimand your rebellious pores ($65 for 55 minutes). Massage therapies at Lemon Drop run the gamut, ranging from the focused kneads of the deep Swedish massage ($65 for 60 minutes) to the soothing, specialized strokes of the pregnancy massage ($70 for 60 minutes). If you're looking to combine an end-of-summer beach vacation with a vacation from your razor, take a peek at Lemon Drop's long list of waxing services ($10–$115).
Desert Sun Tanning's FormoStar body wraps radiate infrared heat onto the limbs and torso in order to boost metabolism and accelerate the burning of fat. During the 50-minute treatment, clients can adjust the body wrap's temperature to suit their levels of heat tolerance and pyromania. The heat from the wrap helps alleviate muscle pain, promotes calorie burning without muscle or lung fatigue, and stimulates the lymphatic system. The sweating that the treatment induces in users is also thought to exfoliate away dead skin cells.
With a 40-year history of primping and pampering faces, fingers, and toes, London House is a full-service salon just off the 509 in South Seattle. Your spa day will begin with a latte and a half-hour express facial designed to cleanse and hydrate your skin and make your face glow like liquid-hot magma wrapped in tinfoil. Next, an eyebrow shaping will separate your brow into two distinct entities, as London House’s eyebrow artist-in-residence will heroically battle each of those wily hairs until order is restored to the northern-most portion of your mug. The spa package concludes with a pina colada pedicure. Breathe in the intoxicating scent of coconut-flavored rum as the pedicurist exfoliates your feet and buffs, shapes, and paints your nails until your feet are fit to be prancy.
Island Breeze Tanning darkens skin with both UV and UV-free options. Their conventional, high-pressure, and standup booths can bronze skin in as little as 12 minutes, or certified airbrush technicians will quickly and evenly coat bodies using custom tanning solutions.
