At more than 30 locations in the Houston area, clients check in at marble-fronted reception desks to meet with a member of Darque Tan's International Smart Tan Network—staff trained to determine the best path to their bronzing goals. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
Sun Kissed Glo bronzes skin without harsh chemicals or damaging UV rays. Featured on 48 Hour Makeover and The Millionaire Matchmaker, Sun Kissed Glo's mobile, celebrity-approved spray-tan system—Infinity Sun—creates a custom tan for any skin shade. With a handheld nozzle applicator, errors are minimized and client privacy is maximized. After you call to make an appointment, an experienced technician arrives at the Houston-area location of your choice, toting all the equipment needed to spray on a tawny, streak-free skin suit. Relax as the personalized, all-natural, anti-aging color blend gently mists away pallor. Afterward, rejoice in the fact that limbs stay golden for 7–14 days.
With a tan, you can instantly transform your look, shocking friends and enemies. You'll get a lustrous, fresh-off-the-beach glow without exposing your skin to beach bullies or the slings and arrows of constant sand-castle sieges. For the spray option, The Tanning Spot's VersaSpa booth uses an aerosoled mixture of powdered sunshine to coat your body in a golden glow that becomes visible within a few hours. The application takes only a minute, and results last up to a week.
A three-time Best of Citysearch award winner, Eclipse Sunless Tanning offers a veritable cornucopia of skin-based treatments. Photo- rejuvenation therapy operates via a spectrum of visible, non-UV-based red light. Once patients step inside the stand-up chamber of the Ergoline Beauty Lounge, the 12-minute treatment commences, bombarding dermal layers with visible red-light wavelengths for potentially firmer, smoother skin. Initial results are thought to include a clearer, more radiant complexion, helpful during photo shoots, special events, and power outages. After several sessions, clients see a marked improvement in tint and clarity, with texture upgraded from "crinkle cut" to "regular french fry" on the skin/potato spectrum.
