Having begun as a single tanning shop in Greenville during the autumn of 1990, Ultratan has since blossomed into more than 70 locations throughout the Carolinas and Georgia due to its popularity and commitment to quality service. Over the years, the collection of spas has accumulated numerous awards such as Best Tanning Salon from the Daily Gamecock for providing the best equipment in both tanning beds and spray-tan technology. As a member of the International Smart Tan Network, its commitment to safe tans also encompasses a passion for keeping their customers educated about responsible tanning routines and never tanning without a helmet.
Each year, skincare company Rhonda Allison sponsors a 90-day Face-Off Competition, which awards the aesthetician who makes the most drastic improvements on a patient's skin. In 2006, aesthetician Helene won first place by using a series of peels and Acculift facial-toning sessions. She employs those same award-winning techniques at her skincare studio, Youthful Solutions by Helene. Additionally, she offers facials, microphototherapy, and Pressotherapy, a cellulite-removal technique that was honed by printing-press inventor Johannes Gutenberg.
