The treatment menu at Sun Spa enables clients to select their preferred method of tanning from a roster that includes six levels of UV tanning beds and the UV-free VersaSpa system. Inside each of the five locations, Sun Spa's bronzing booths remain available 24 hours a day, presenting patrons with the opportunity to work around unorthodox schedules or warm up after bone-chilling nightmares. A selection of lotions by Australian Gold augments the effects of light-powered tanning excursions, and a storefront display of swimwear and handmade jewelry complement newly golden glows.

Masters in the art of spray tanning, Glowing Goddess colors the skin canvas of any gender or complexion, sparing them from being exposed to harmful UV rays. The process applies a colorless sugar DHA, dihydroyacetone, to the skin that reacts with the oxygen in the air to safely produce an even, burnished glow. The airbrush tan helps hide freckles, smoothes out a blotchy complexion, and provides camouflage during freeze-tag matches in desert sandstorms. Airbrush tans last up to a week, but you can buy tan extenders from Glowing Goddess in case your high-school reunion ends up getting trapped inside the high-school gym for eight days.
At Skin Solutions, located inside Rio Salon, the staff has an express set of goals: to reduce the signs of age and get rid of unwanted hair while impacting their clients' day as little as possible. To these ends, registered nurse Kathy LeFever leads an aesthetic team through the use of Botox and noninvasive lasers, filling out wrinkles and zapping unwanted hair from head to toe. And the combination of these two treatments is indicative of the larger trend that all the aestheticians follow—pairing pampering services with medical-grade technology. Facials and peels, for instance, offset IPL facial treatments and micro-pigmentation cosmetics, which render eyeliner that lasts up to five years, by which time everyone will have CGI eyeliner.

Waxing services for women and men mingle with herb- and sugar-infused body treatments to cut down on wind resistance when catching a speeding pedicab, and winks find alluring magnification with luxurious eyelash extensions and lash and eyebrow tints.
