Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
A member of the international Smart Tan network, Bronze FX Tanning provides its clients with the most up-to-date tanning intelligence by insisting that each tanning technician undergo certification through the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology. UV-free Mystic Tan booths spritz skin with bronzer using specialized nozzles that polarize the solutions, allowing them to better adhere to the skin’s surface. The salon also offers multiple UV options, including low-pressure Tanses and Celsius VHR beds, each with 52 bulbs, as well as a high-pressure Ultrabronz bed, which uses 18 1,000-watt bulbs to produce a darker tan and enhance teddy bears with natural highlights in just 30 minutes.
Nestled in historic Dublin, bare s.k.i.n. day spa is manned by an experienced staff that performs a range of skincare and muscle-relaxing treatments.

The latest tanning technology and finest products await customers at Bronze Tan Studios, where high-quality beds, spray-tan booths, and a professional staff help transform sallow skin into burnished bodies. Shade shifters will appreciate a month of unlimited “Gold Club” tanning (a $49.99 value) with their choice of three different bed styles. Extra-pallid novices and 19th-century horror writers can build up their base tans with the Ultra Bed, which features three facial tanners and full-body cooling fans. The Booster Bed provides time-crunched tanners with excellent color upgrades in only 10 minutes, allowing them to quickly get back to evading police manhunts. Stand-up tanners, meanwhile, can darken their dermises while honing their observational humor in the no-contact Sundazzler while a high-performance dual-speed body fan alleviates flop sweat.
The long row of leather pedicure chairs isn’t the token of luxury at The Nail Retreat.
