Lady of Sun Tanning infuses skin with a sun-kissed, beach-ready bronze with sunless airbrush-tanning treatments. Applied manually by one of the salon's technicians, the tanning solutions coat bodies evenly in a hue that can be adjusted to fit clients' complexion. In addition to services offered at the salon, Lady of Sun Tanning also hosts fun, music-infused group tanning parties.
When owner Giovanni Finocchiaro picked up the phone at Face It Spa, he heard one of his clients sobbing. She had been preparing for a presentation at work, and in the process, her skin had broken out so badly that Finocchiaro recalls her lamenting, "I just can't do it. I have to see you." Finocchiaro, who once dreamed of being a counselor, told her to come in immediately. "When you help people look better on the outside, it really does make them feel better inward, too," he says. When his distraught client arrived, he tailored a peel for her sensitive skin that helped kill bacteria and calm inflammation. Within a few days, he says, "she couldn't believe … how [her complexion] was already turning around."
Inside his recently remodeled boutique, Finocchiaro caters to each of his clients in the same way. He offers them complimentary water or tea before leading them across dark hardwood floors to a candlelit treatment room. After cleansing their face, he uses a lighted magnifier to analyze their skin type, then employs PCA products and a wide arsenal of customizable facial treatments to help them reach specific beauty goals or the center of the Earth.
Permanent Perfection Permanent Cosmetics? licensed beauticians upgrade clients' appearances with classic and uncommon spa services. During therapeutic cupping treatments, staffers create small pockets of suction to gently increase lymphatic flow, reduce toxins, contour bodies, and ameliorate scarring. To mold shapelier frames, technicians swaddle guests with slimming body wraps or melt fat with ultrasound liposuction. In addition to body treatments, the clinic offers teeth-whitening, facials, and permanent-makeup applications. Permanent Perfection's techs can also remove tattoos by using advanced technology or traveling back in time and trapping your past self in a net.
The beauty buffs at Envy Tan equip their newly opened salon with a collection of beds, spray-tan services, and red-light therapy that aims to bronze and tone the skin. Recline in a 12-minute lie-down bed or rehearse semaphore monologues in a 9-minute stand-up unit, all while soaking in the vitamin D emitted by the traditional Level 2 UV tanning. The pink and white upright Ergoline Beauty Angel chamber bathes bodies in therapeutic non-UV red light, which has been said to stimulate collagen production to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. The rejuvenating beams may refine skin texture, as the vibrating platform underfoot stimulates muscles and politely asks cellulite to leave the room. A trio of VersaSpa spray tan sessions evenly mists hides with a sunless bronzing formula in the comfort of a high-tech booth or low-tech bounce castle.
