Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, L.A. Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
Opening doors for 24 hours a day, seven days a week is an exhausting proposition for any doorman, unless he's a robot. That's why Anytime Fitness—having redirected its robot budget into tanning beds, cardio equipment with built-in TVs, and Precor weight machines—installed a keycard-activated security system instead. The electronic guardian keeps gym members secure while admitting them at any time of day or night for their workouts.

Voted best tanning salon in 2011 by readers of the Courier and Press, Let’s Get Tan’s sunless booths and UV beds burnish skin with several tanning options. Eighteen tanning beds in seven levels coax melanin toward the surface with UV lamps and ultrasonic mating calls. Sunless options include two Mystic Tan booths, one VersaSpa chamber, and an Evolv heated airbrush-tanning system. The Smart Tan– and Sunless–certified staff uses their extensive training to ensure clients tan safely and comfortably, and iPod docks in most private rooms allow patrons to accompany their sessions with their choice in music. Along with tanning, the VersaSpa chamber can also burn up to 1,000 calories per visit.
The salon’s staff also recognizes that skincare goes hand in hand with tanning, and to that end they stock the shelves with a curated selection of products. Their red-light therapy booth’s 615- to 640-nanometer wavelengths of light work to stimulate collagen production, which can tighten skin and reduce the appearance of acne and wrinkles without the frustration that accompanies glaring at a red stoplight. Rounding out the slate of ancillary beauty services, one-hour Fit body-wrap sessions aim to help the body burn up to 1,400 calories with far-infrared heat.

Malibu Tanning darkens dermals with five levels of tanning beds and rayless spray tans overseen by a Smart Tan–certified staff.

When MTV’s MADE was in town and needed to complete a dramatic makeover for the episode “Ladies Man,” the show knew whose door to knock. As L Spa Modern’s experts bronzed the episode’s Don Juan-in-training, they added yet another tan to the more than 25,000—including thousands of wedding tans—they’ve completed in the past nine-plus years. The salon’s automated airbrush platform darkens skin to a choice of three shades in just 10 minutes so guests can get in and out and on with their plot to mock the eternally pale moon. Before or after sessions, clients can sip complimentary cappuccinos, mochas, and lattes, or 14 kinds of tea.
