With 20+ years of experience in the industry, tanning experts at Carolina Tan Factory do more than just offer UV and sunless-tanning services at both Carolina Tan Factory locations. They also work to create a comfortable tanning experience for her clients. Tropical-themed décor and friendly staffers greet guests as they step into either highly sanitized salon. Back in the private tanning room, fresh, fluffy towels await clients’ arrivals before they slip into a Ergoline or Sun Industries UV tanning bed or step into a MysticTan Sunless Booth. UV beds ensure even tans, since the bulbs are regularly replaced after 50% usage, and an array of lotions and bronzers wait on hand to protect skin and help ensure anything from a "just spent the day at the beach" tan to a "just spent three months organic farming on Mars" glow. And to add convenience to each client's experience, Carolina Tan Factory's remain open seven days a week and offer early morning and evening hours.
Bodyheat Tanning, with 23 locations spanning Nevada, gilds bodies with the help of tanning beds in five levels, sunless spray tanning, and custom airbrush tans. VersaSpa systems automatically mist bronze color onto skin in 60 seconds. No matter what kind of tans clients are looking for, tanning experts analyze skin types and goals to help them choose the lotions, equipment, and perfect crayon shades to fit their needs.
For tan-free options, infrared body wraps melt inches, and Hydration Stations combine radiant heat, steam, and vibrations to turn tight muscles into butter. Red-light beds from iRenew eschew tanning in favor of reducing acne and fine lines. Additionally, the salons dispense myriad tanning lotions, lip glosses, and house-paint swatches for easy skin-tone matching.
Similar to sunbathing, indoor tanning can be hazardous when done irresponsibly. That's why Club 1 Tanning, a member of the Indoor Tanning Association and International Smart Tan Network, enlists knowledgeable staffers to carefully oversee customers’ use of its state-of-the-art tanning beds. Along with four levels of UV-tanning bed, the salon features the VersaSpa spray-tan system, which produces sun-kissed glows without using ultraviolet rays or leaving skin marked by embarrassing orange hues.
The staff at Tan Factory bronzes their clients’ birthday suits with UV-free airbrush tanning for the entire body, enlisting the manmade sunshine found in California Tan products. During the 20-minute sessions, tanning technicians slather hides in sun-kissed hues that can last from 7–10 days or until clients tumble into a vat of Liquid Paper. Tan Factory continuously seeks out current technology and supplements its spray applications with lotions from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty. Tanning mavens recommend exfoliating beforehand and wearing loose clothing to the sessions, and recommends that customers avoid any moisturizers, fragrances, and laser-light shows on the day of the treatments.
With its standup booths, advanced spray-tanning equipment, and four levels of tanning beds, Sun Studio Tan brings the beach indoors—minus the sand and salty water, of course. The studio’s basic beds cultivate golden base tans in approximately 10 sessions; high-pressure Level 4 beds, on the other hand, get the job done so fast that there is hardly time to enjoy a few songs on the CD/MP3 stereo sound systems hooked up inside. Sun Studio Tan's bronzing emporium also hosts VersaSpa spray-tan booths for quick, UV-free tanning. The innovative system tans and hydrates skin in 60 seconds, or roughly the same amount of time it takes to jump in and out of a scalding-hot deep fryer.
Although aesthetician Nicole Maldonado is an expert wax technician, you won't find any wax in her studio. Instead, she removes unwanted hair with the same sugaring techniques the ancient Egyptians relied on. As a certified sugaring educator, she lauds the many benefits of sugar over wax. For one, sugar isn't hot, so there's no risk of clients getting burnt. For another, it eases out strands in their natural direction of growth to prevent breakage and ingrown hairs.
