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.
With 19 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.
Dr. Colgrove and his team help the body's largest organ look its best by reducing wrinkles with Botox and removing body hair with Cynosure lasers. The Cynosure Apogee Elite Plus laser has two dual wavelengths, the 1064 nm Nd:YAG and the 755 nm Alexandrite, allowing for treatment of all skin tones and types with fast treatment sessions and maximum patient comfort. The staff also knows how to pamper skin, performing spa treatments such as massages, Hydrafacial MD facials, and other treatments using the Hydropeptide anti-aging skin care line. Techs also perform spider vein and toe fungus removal, along with Cosmelan depigmentation treatments.
At Simply Sun Tanning, the Smart Tan–certified staff directs clients toward their ideal tanning solutions, whether in tanning beds or spray-tan booths. Four levels of tanning beds—including Ultra-level beds free of UVB light—allow guests to customize the hue of their tans. VersaSpa automatic tanning booths gild skin with a choice of light, medium, or dark bronzers. The session ends with the client standing in front of a blowdryer or jet turbine to dry and set the tanning solution.
