In 2001, the first iTAN Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal?to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 30 Southern California franchises, each offering a slightly different assortment of teeth whitening, tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and self-serve spa offerings.
The Smart Tan?certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays, and self-administered spa treatments dispense relaxing red-light facials, infrared-heat bodywraps, and aqua massages.
Aztec Tan’s technicians ensure clients achieve the perfect natural, sun-kissed look using an arsenal of tanning technology that includes UV-free systems. The selection of beds spans five tanning levels, from the introductory Sundash to the Sunboard XTT, which houses cooperative baby supernovas. To deliver beach-ready radiance without UV rays, technicians use airbrush and Mystic Tan systems to imbue skin with a natural, bronzed look that lasts for up to seven days. To enhance a rich tan, the center offers Twilight Teeth whitening technology, which harnesses heat and light to leave smiles as bright as an elevator full of halogen flashlights. Services such as the FIT bodywrap and the Formostar infrared body wrap help to break down fat tissue and detoxify the body.
Though wrapping something is usually supposed to keep it contained, the treatments at Segue Body Wraps are meant to force toxins and water weight out. Since 2005, the center?s technicians have accomplished this effect by bandaging clients' midsection, thighs, and sometimes the face with a mineral infused tightening booster. Once fully wrapped, clients are placed in an infrared heat blanket, which causes water reduction through sweating and calorie burn. This helps reduce cellulite and stretch marks while detoxifying the body. Segue Body Wraps also offers a number of other services, including facials, waxing, and custom make-up. The relaxing facial cleanses and exfoliates the skin before a hydration mask is applied, followed by toner and moisturizing sunscreen.
While most friendships are solidified with threaded bracelets, Dana Priest and Jenni Tenute had a different idea. Nine years into their friendship, the two pals combined their extensive salon experience and opened Salon Texture. At their full-service salon and skincare studio, stylists transform hair with flattering cuts, vibrant colors, and chemical-free Brazilian straightening treatments. Meanwhile, inside the skincare studio, they tend to the body's biggest organ with seasonal body masks, wraps, or exfoliation. Their menu of facials treats a number of skin concerns, including fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and stubborn milk mustaches.
The European facial at AHN Skin & Beauty is a microcosm of the spa's dedication to relaxation and beautification. In addition to rejuvenating complexions, it includes shoulder, neck, and scalp massages and an aromatherapy treatment with a fragrant hot towel fluffed in a flower-filled dryer. If you just want beauty services, you can schedule airbrush-tanning, eyelash-extension, and hair-and-makeup sessions. For pure relaxation, on the other hand, the spa's massage therapists give Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
After acquiring San Diego Tan in 2013, owner Daniel Cruz transformed the tanning salon into Vivid Tan, a place where clients can bask under the lamps of three different levels of beds. They can also apply the salon?s stock of Designer Skin and Australian Gold lotions to enhance their tans, soften their skin, and confirm that they?re not just holograms.
