With 20 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10?20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
Warm cocoa hues drench the foyer of Toast Tanning Parlour, beckoning visitors to rest upon leather seats and white chairs illuminated by soft spotlights. This chic but contemporary interior exemplifies the business's blend of European elegance and modern technology. Its pristine UV beds and Mystic Tan booth soak bodies with golden hues according to customers' desired level of color or their pressing need to blend in with tree trunks while village mobs gallop by.
Wherever light can be used therapeutically, Radiance Light Systems is probably on top of it. The center opened as Wolff Tan USA in 1987, and is now known as Radiance Light Systems to reflect the many light-based services added to its roster on top of bed and spray tanning. Among them are hair and tattoo removal, as well as teeth-whitening treatments that use stain-dissolving lamps instead of firefly dentists. But at the center of the Radiance's offerings is LED light therapy, a process by which a special booth emits light that helps the body regenerate and heal, also helping skin look healthier in the process.
By performing services with skill and finesse, Siggers Hairdressers' trend-wise stylists travel the world to stay up-to-date with fashion capitals’ latest trends and maintain Siggers' Intercoiffure membership for highly prized salons since 1977. When they aren't cutting, tinting, and straightening coifs, the team members sculpt elegant updos for weddings and primp hands and feet with mani-pedis. Siggers also specializes in balayage, a highlighting method that creates more natural-looking sun-kissed streaks. Stylists accomplish this look by painting each highlight by hand, moving from base to tip in a sweeping motion borrowed from Van Gogh's self portraits. Clients longing to boost their beauty quotient further can take makeup lessons with Suni, a makeup artist and educator who has spent 25 years working with celebrities and whose resumé boasts features on commercials, films, magazines, and TV’s Extreme Makeover.
At (STAND) UV & Spray Tanning, tanners choose from a variety of traditional and UV-free bronzing methods. With an effect similar to tying the sun around a tetherball pole, standup UV booths feature 360-degree tanning, deepening skin tone during expedient 8- to 11-minute sessions. Patrons opting for sunless tanning can choose between automated Mystic Tan sessions with a choice of four shades of tan or custom Norvell airbrush treatments applied by trained technicians. Additionally, red-light-therapy sessions unclench faces from the grip of Father Time by reducing the appearance of fine lines and large pores, as well as boosting elasticity.
