Determined to give working people a place to relax and be pampered, the working mother of two behind Tigli Skin Spa enlisted her husband and friends to help her create an intimate spa, tanning salon, and boutique. Soft lighting and richly hued furnishings set the tone for lush experiences, whether in one of the spa's fleet of tanning beds or in a tranquil massage room. A luxurious experience is ensured with the use of celebrity-favorite Éminence Organics skincare products, which nourish the skin, engage the senses, and broker sophisticated peace deals between the earth and the salon industry.
Golden Tan Salons recognizes the importance of cultivating an eye-catching glow at all four of their area locations. After a complimentary tour and consultation, certified tanning professionals direct patrons toward quick misting in a spray-tanning booth. Horizontal, vertical, and open-style beds build tans with UV light instead of bronze Legos as patrons enjoy features such as built-in air conditioning and aromatherapy. The team also recommends products to nourish skin and extend the life of tans.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Each of the four types of UV tanning beds at Relax n Tan Inver Grove Heights is expressly designed to keep clients comfortable. They have integrated cooling systems and music docks, and their ergonomic shape sports an arrangement of lamps that focus additional energy on the face and shoulders, which simulates an outdoor tan or the effects of tackling the sun. Alternatively, spray-tan technicians can help clients pick out appropriate shades before airbrushing them with natural DHA, paraben-free bronzers that develop over eight hours.
In addition, the Relax n Tan team helps to stave off wrinkles and sagging skin with red-lamp therapy beds and botanical body wraps. Certified massage therapists clear away stress and bodily toxins with a menu of 12 modalities.
Inside a boutique-like studio, The Glow Lounge’s certified airbrush artists conjure sunless shades of bronze with customized and vitamin-enriched tanning solutions. The Evolv Sidekick machine is designed to keep skin toasty with an applicator that triggers the heat-activated bronzing solution and a stream of hot air recycled from political speeches. After the consultation, the technician formulates the client's custom color. The solution mimics a natural tan, nourishing cells with tea-tree and grape-seed oil as well as erythrulose and DHA, which encourage color to last longer. Shades last for up to eight days, depending on the type and amount of solution applied as well as proper prep and aftercare.
