Since opening its doors more than 20 years ago, Sundays Sun Spa—formerly known as Sundays Tanning Salon—has become the go-to place for guests looking to get bronze and lean in a spa-like environment. Curtains and crawling vines line the earth-toned studio, where certified staff members fastidiously maintain each piece of equipment with a 10-point sanitation procedure. Airbrush artists craft custom tans with a gold-plating mist made from natural, paraben-free ingredients. Their selection of high-pressure horizontal and standing UV beds sport fresh lamps for quick doses of color. To help slenderize bodies, they power up the Formostar infrared-body-wrap system, which is designed to boost metabolic rates and diminish cellulite while burning calories during a relaxing treatment.
At Total Tan, tanning is a luxurious experience as much as it is an aesthetic treatment. For evidence, look no further than the KBL 6800 Alpha tanning bed, one of many state-of-the-art beds and booths the facility carries. The bed’s canopy, bench, and face tanner imbue bodies with a rich and even tan, throwing in a healthy dose of vitamin D3, as the air fills with eucalyptus aromatherapy, a cool breeze and mist from the built-in air conditioner, and the sounds of soothing music or Morgan Freeman whispering lullabies from the MP3 player. A total of 30 beds and booths each boast their own pampering and bronzing components, but don’t worry, a trained staff is on hand to help you pick the equipment that’s right for your skin tone. UV-free tanning is also available via the VersaSpa full-body tanning booth, and LED tray teeth-whitening systems harness the power of light to make pearly whites pearly whiter.
Chili Pepper's Tanning Inc. Megastores’ trophy case is getting full—in addition to being named one of Detroit’s best tanning salons three times in a row by CityVoter, it has acquired accolades from Local 4 and CBS Detroit, which commends its spray tanning. Its growing awards reflect Chili Pepper’s growth; since opening in 2002, Chili Pepper’s has expanded to 15 locations, spreading across Detroit like the buffalo pox.
In every location, five levels of tanning beds turn skin a sun-kissed gold or deep bronze. Mystic Tan sessions let customers avoid things associated with booth and outdoor tanning—UV rays and pool lifeguards who push you in the water to practice saving you. No matter which option they choose, patrons can turn to knowledgeable Smart Tan–certified staff members who help clients decide what is best for their tanning goals.
The techs at She's Nailin It take pride in delivering a healthy mani-pedi experience that's free from germs and strong smells. That's why they practice hospital-grade sterilization techniques on their equipment, and why the salon uses a ventilation system that propels harsh odors outdoors, where pigs live. Once conditions are in order they begin their services, trimming and shaping nails before applying name-brand polishes from OPI, Essie, and more.
Staffed by a highly trained team of physicians, registered nurses, and medical aestheticians, Eastside Skin Care & Laser Center works to keep faces and physiques youthful with a suite of aesthetic services. Each visit kicks off with a personalized consultation before technicians perform Botox injections, spider-vein treatments, and skits about the discovery of laser hair removal by a clumsy CD-drive technician.
A longtime resident of Windsor, Dr. Patrick Smith, M.D. returned to the area after completing medical school and opened a family practice in 1987. He enjoyed the work but longed to transition into dermatology, for which he held both a passion and professional training. Years later, he assembled a team of estheticians and opened his namesake skincare clinic: Dr. P.X. Smith Medical Cosmetics.
Open for more than seven years, the clinic offers cosmetic and medical-grade services including Botox and Juvederm, laser skin-resurfacing treatments, and mole removal from both faces and lawns. Dr. Smith performs all medical consultations and directly supervises treatments performed by his highly trained staff.
As a skincare expert, the doctor is dedicated to educating his community about the dangers of excessive sun exposure. He worked at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre before starting his family practice and coordinated the Mark Hunt Melanoma Awareness Fund-Raising Walk to heighten awareness of skin cancer, particularly malignant melanoma.
