Seven levels of UV beds populate the private tanning rooms of Unlimited Tan’s numerous Chicagoland locations and join forces with automated spray-tanning booths to forge a war against wintry pallor. Tanning equipment tiers build upon basic level lamps to include extras such as high-pressure bulbs, aromatherapy, and cooling mists designed to keep clients comfortable and make it easier to maintain their hue over time. For the UV averse, spray-tanning booths send automated jets of pigment misting over bodies in 60 seconds, with the full, streak-free results gradually developing across 24 hours, like a whirlwind romance between sloths. Each of the salons also stocks a full supply of lotions from brands such as Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Swedish Beauty, which works to protect skin and enhance the life of any tan.
For more than a decade, the technicians at Spray of Sunshine have been safely darkening skin using FDA-approved airbrush-tanning techniques. During 30-minute airbrush-tanning sessions, techs spray micromists of DHA bronzer, which bonds to skin to produce the appearance of a natural, even tan without the labors of lounging on a beach chair strapped to a sun-bound rocket. Tans typically last up to 10 days, depending on upkeep and maintenance practices.
The efficient tanning team can also perform mobile services at the home or office. The technicians arrive with all necessary equipment, carefully coating bodies in bathrooms or garages to avoid giving tans to already-entitled housecats.
