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.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. A dedicated full-time cleaning staff regularly runs through a 50-point inspection process between sessions, helping to create a sanitary tanning experience and keep clients from warming up 6-foot-long paninis during appointments.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, such as the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Because the existence of so many types of tanning equipment can sometimes make tanning intimidating, Perfect Tan’s staffers are always on hand to help clients establish a tanning regimen based on their skin type and tanning goals. By asking a few simple questions, the staff can help clients choose from three levels of tanning beds and a UV-free, sunless Mystic spray-tan booth that leaves bodies evenly bronzed in about 20 minutes. Their tan plan determined, clients recline in lie-down beds from Ovation, Encore, Solart, and Bravo, or they stand in a 2M standup tanning booth so they can keep balancing stacks of dinner plates on their heads.
The technicians at Express Tan apply custom spray tan in a fine mist, leaving skin sun-kissed without the sun's damaging effects. Tans can be tailored to your desired level, whether it be bronze, silver, or gold, without the metallic aftertaste. Safe and swift, the Infinity Sun Spa spray-on system is the only multi-treatment skincare system based upon high-volume, low-pressure turbine engineering, a technological progression that helps prevent the appearance of streaks, blotches, and crop circles. To make tanning more accessible for all in-need bods, Express Tan keeps its skilled sprayers on-hand seven days a week, with sessions available by appointment only.
Platinum Tans' friendly staff accommodates bodies with sundry skin-bronzing options, including 11 tanning beds, a Mystic tanning booth, and personalized airbrush services. Limbs new to the fine art of sunbathing can soak in rays in tier-one beds for 10 minutes, and the medium-level, tier-two beds darken hides in 20 minutes sandwiched between horizontal bulbs or in 12 minutes within a stand-up booth. The high-level, tier-three beds maintain and deepen an already-sun-kissed epidermis in 15 minutes, reserved for those with a solid base tan or a signed note from Apollo.
