Gold'n Tan houses a bevy of tanning beds that let customers achieve bronze glows regardless of the weather. Three different systems stand at the ready, including high-pressure, 650-watt Matrix beds, Hex stand-up booths, and Tanses beds. Those looking to avoid UV rays can ask for an airbrush tan, which lasts up to 10 days and looks real enough to trick the sun into crossing you off its bucket list.
Fabutan Sun Tan Studios helps patrons transform their pallid skinscapes into brilliant golden fleeces with advanced UV-free Mystic Tan equipment. Glow getters can customize their tanning session by selecting a fragrance that best suits their olfactory whims and a colour level that best accents their features. Patrons then hop into a balmy private booth, kept at 32°C to encourage enhanced spray-tan absorption and provide full-body drying during the application process, eliminating the need to clip shoulders to a clothesline. An even mist disperses ultravioletless sun kisses across epidermal planes, and the booth’s MagneTan technology imbues skin with a positive magnetic charge to attract the spray in a uniform embrace. Guests leave Fabutan with a streak-free caramel patina, looking as bronzed and beachy as a third-place sandcastle builder. Depending on skin type and skincare regimen, pseudo suntans can last 3–5 days.
By pairing UV and UV-free tanning treatments with resort-like facilities, Tan FX Sun Tanning Studio has become Canada's fastest growing indoor-tanning franchise over the past decade. The company's numerous locations—scattered throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba—feature modern UV-tanning beds and booths capable of bronzing bodies in as little as 10 minutes and UV-free Mystic Tan systems that apply color in seconds. To ensure all tanning contraptions are used safely and properly, Tan FX keeps its Smart Tan–certified staff up to date on the latest industry knowledge with online training programs and in-person interviews with the sun.
Parisian prints, a vintage body form, and the glow from an electric fireplace surround guests inside. The decor’s eclectic nature extends to the array of services, from body-bronzing custom spray tans to relaxing Thai massages. The beauty experts also wax off unwanted fuzz on faces and limbs and apply lash extensions to existing fringe for an eye-catching look.
At Sun Gala Tanning Salon, operations manager Mena and her Smart Tan–certified staff members design individualized sunless and UV-tanning packages based on each client's skin type. With a commitment to safe and effective tanning, the epidermal darkening team helps select methods and lotions to prevent burning and ensure long-lasting results. Six lie-down beds, two stand-up beds, and a VersaSpa sunless-tanning system allow the team to keep birthday suits bronzed throughout the year. The staff also combines sunless and bed sessions while acclimating skin cells to UV rays to help bronzers prepare for vacations or missions to the sun.
At Ageless Bronzing Spa, the private automated tanning system forgoes any harsh UV rays when imbuing clients’ skin with safe organic spray tans, which can help enhance muscle definition, slim appearance, and even skin tone. Newly bronzed patrons can stick around for a number of additional beauty services, including teeth whitening, hair tinsel, hair diamonds, and extensions that glow when someone is thinking about you. Fashion accessories, litter eyelash applications, and temporary tattoos in 60 styles also abound at the spa.
