Anytime Tan Tanning Club first powered up its trio of German-made tanning beds in September, 1985, during the peak of the decade’s indoor-tanning boom. But just as bulky car phones and shoulder pads have faded away in the years that followed, Anytime Tan Tanning Club has stayed on top of trends by acquiring the latest equipment for its eight area locations.
The staff members at each location can pair clients with all manner of machines, from powerful Ergoline beds and booths to innovative sunless-tanning solutions from VersaSpa. For added vanity, most of the salon’s locations offer professional teeth-whitening services. And the Robinson location even provides Evolv sunless tanning and innovative red-light therapy, which aims to diminish signs of aging or the fact that someone enjoys napping on pizzas.
The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs noninvasive body-contouring and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center’s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.
The experts of sans-sun tanning at Copper Zone convert pale persons into bronzed bodies with a bounty of state-of-the-art tanning services and products. After clients step into the Cal-Tan Autobronzer spray booth, a mist of UV-free tanning applicant will gently rain down upon their sallow soul-satchels, rendering skin as naturally copper as Abe Lincoln's mutton chops. Copper Zone is conveniently located in Southern Park Mall, and is open seven days a week to the benefit of busy bronzing-aspirants.
Acne holds the top spot on the facial hit list for the aestheticians at Clearskin Acne and Skincare Solutions, where an advanced acne-clearing program draws upon the research of respected acne expert Dr. James Fulton to rid faces of blemishes. During the program, aestheticians check in on acne spots every 2–4 weeks, slathering pores with the studio’s own line of client-tailored products or with medical-grade serums from Vivant and PCA Skincare. These regular visits, coupled with advice for at-home regimens, can help rid pores of blemishes, blackheads, and whack-a-moles in as little as 3 months. Though specializing in clearing acne, the beauty crew also treats visages to anti-aging facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and relaxing European facial massages.
Using advanced Chromogenex i-Lipo lasers—which have been praised by The Doctors—the technicians at New Beginnings Body Sculpting reduce both fat and inches from clients’ forms. Four pads outfitted with a total of 32 low-level lasers are placed along sites of concern, such as thighs, upper arms, or water wings, where they spend the next 40 minutes prompting fat cells to release their impurities and triglycerides. The cell waste is then absorbed and burned off by the muscles. The office’s i-Lipo Ultra goes one step further to create firmer physiques: the device’s built-in vacuum and infrared laser help smooth out cellulite and boost collagen production.
The sound of thumping bass greets guests at ZFit Studio, where instructors lead a slew of high-energy fitness classes.

To keep their patrons engaged in exercising, they strive to develop workouts that are both fitness enhancing and exciting, much like doing arm curls while skydiving.
