As a certified dermagraphic technician and micro-pigmentation specialist, Melissa Johnson spends her workdays treating scars and applying permanent cosmetics to faces. She also removes unwanted tattoos using a saline/salabrasion method that forces ink to the skin?s surface through osmotic pressure. When not bolstering the appearance of her clients, Melissa teaches her students the art and practice of Dermagraphics in permanent cosmetics, scar treatment, and tattoo removal.
Except for the stream of bronzed bodies emerging from its doors, Tahiti Sun Tanning could be confused with a traditional day spa. A hallway of private treatment rooms suggests the seclusion typically associated with facials and massages, because staff members believe tanning deserves this same luxurious feel. Clients bronze in ultra-ruva or high-pressure beds from brands such as Wolff and Ergoline as stereos keep ears entertained. In another room, customers can get custom spray tanning with Norvell spray-tanning treatments. On their way out, clients can buy tan-enhancing lotions and creams from the boutique to prolong their skin’s golden hue.
At Envy Sun Tanning, beds and booths mimic the sun inside a controlled environment. Set to Levels 1-4, machines from Santa Barbara, Pacifica, X2 Solarix, and Sun Up II warm bodies to a sunny glow by showering them with luminous beams. Meanwhile, Mystic Tan equipment kisses bodies with a golden sheen using a spray that creates the look of a gold-plated suit of armor without the help of UV rays.
Light is one of the universe's most powerful forces. It can prompt plants to start photosynthesis, charge solar calculators, and instantly vaporize 75% of the world's ghosts. Expressions Tanning stretches light's abilities even further with an array of services to beautify skin and beyond. Smart Tan certified technicians recommend different intensities of tanning beds that beam light at six different levels, which gradually build golden tans over multiple visits. In other rooms, a BeamingWhite system redirects light towards the teeth, whitening them during quick, 15-minute sessions. They might also point visitors in the direction of UV-free spray tanning booths which lavish skin with a faux golden glow.
European Tanning Center fosters healthy glows with a well-curated collection of sun-simulating tanning beds and VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Six flavors of horizontal and upright tanning beds feature various amenities such as surround sound, 360-degree tanning-bulb arrays, and high-pressure lamps; a dedicated leg-tanning unit bronzes appendages paled from shaving or an unchecked pants addiction. The center's fully automated VersaSpa spray booth doles out UV-free radiance via a fine mist of hydrating tanning solution. Clients can extend the life of their newly furbished tans with a full line of products from Australian Gold and Designer Skin.
At Lash Bar Boutique, beauticians celebrate expressive peepers with eye-catching lash extensions. They apply extensions one by one, giving them a naturally lush appearance. Each set is customized to the client's tastes and personality: the length can be modest or adventurously long, and the curl can be subtle or dramatic. Newly bolstered lashes not only enhance beauty, but also eliminate the need for mascara.
