Each of the four types of UV tanning beds at Relax n Tan Inver Grove Heights is expressly designed to keep clients comfortable. They have integrated cooling systems and music docks, and their ergonomic shape sports an arrangement of lamps that focus additional energy on the face and shoulders, which simulates an outdoor tan or the effects of tackling the sun. Alternatively, spray-tan technicians can help clients pick out appropriate shades before airbrushing them with natural DHA, paraben-free bronzers that develop over eight hours.
In addition, the Relax n Tan team helps to stave off wrinkles and sagging skin with red-lamp therapy beds and botanical body wraps. Certified massage therapists clear away stress and bodily toxins with a menu of 12 modalities.
