Michelle Hunkus owns and operates Body Contours by Michelle within The Cove Wellness Spa, which is actually a recent development. She initially tried body contouring herself not so long ago through a Groupon she bought. She was looking for a way to dismiss some inches from her waistline before vacation. Michelle was so pleased with her results that as soon as she got back into town, she started researching how to open her own business. She's now come full circle, working with Groupon from the other end. Michelle is still a big fan of the treatment. "This product allows people to see fast results, which helps motivate them to continue on the path to a healthier lifestyle," she said.

Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
Since opening in the early 1990s with just four stores, L.A. Tan has expanded into a national brand that counts more than 180 locations in six states. Members can tan at any location they wish, selecting from services that range from at least five levels of high-end UV beds to spray-tan booths from top brands such as Mystic Tan and VersaSpa. Anyone unsure of how to navigate all the options can seek advice from one of L.A. Tan's certified tanning professionals, who know each tanning bed on a first-name basis. They also give consultations, build custom packages based on individual skin type, and offer take-home products that help tans last longer. Dependent on the location, spray tanning systems will vary; call desired location for further details.
