Winner of Orange Coast magazine's Best Tanning Salon title in 2003, Bare Tan bottles the tanning power of the sun and hands it over to clients in the form of UV beds and airbrush tans. The staff excels at customizing tans in accordance with clients? desires and their local beach?s bylaws. They can recommend low-, medium-, or high-pressure beds or tailor shades with airbrush tans available in five levels. VersaSpa and Mystic Tan spray-tanning booths apply a healthy-looking color in less than five minutes with the help of hydrating DHA ingredients and quick-drying technology.
The skincare specialists at each independently owned and operated Facelogic Spa follow the same mantra: to bring out the best in each client. To do this, the technicians work through a brief questionnaire and skin analysis to determine which of the menu?s 10-plus facials best suit each client's skin. Signature facials rely on Facelogic?s own Signature skincare line, which uses botanical-based formulas and advanced cosmetic and pharmaceutical combinations to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize. The Elite facial covers skin with products from brands such as Peter Thomas Roth, ?minence, and Image Skincare. All facials include an arm-and-shoulder massage, and can be enhanced with a range of add-ons, including chemical peels and sonnets composed by the aesthetician.
At the Tanning Spa, staff members harness King Midas?s gilded touch with custom airbrushing, Mystic spray tans, and a slew of UV beds. Sessions take place in private treatment rooms, fully stocked with chilled or heated aromatherapy towels, bathrobes, and Bose speakers for blasting favorite tunes or bingo calls. The spa?s automated Mystic booth spritzes bodies with a skin-dimming blend of aloe vera, DHA, and optional bronzer, or custom hues come courtesy of trained airbrush techs and Infinity Sun formula. For UV veneers, a diverse collection of tanning beds, including the Magic 636, swaddles upright or prone clients in bulbs culled from the sun's tulip fields.
At Orange County Dental Specialists, the highly trained team includes general dentists, a periodontist, an endodontist, an oral surgeon, and a pediatric dentist. The office is helmed by Dr. Nina Sharma, a Southern California native and a ten-year veteran in the war on plaque. The staff?s broad range of expertise allows patients to receive a variety of treatments under one roof, ranging from dental implants and porcelain veneers to root canals to relieve pain and Invisalign clear braces that, like a chocolate-milk mustache after a spray tan, are nearly invisible.
The knowledgeable staffers at Planet Beauty stock the store’s shelves with enough top-quality beauty products to outfit a regiment of beauticians. Guided by experience as aestheticians, stylists, and makeup artists, they help guests navigate the roster of premium brands, which includes bad-hair-day-banishing products from Frederic Fekkai and Kérastase. Skincare potions from Dermalogica and Peter Thomas Roth clear facial canvases before applications of Smashbox blush brighten cheeks or Divaderme lash extender make eyelashes visible from orbit.
Inside Tropical Tan, it only takes one minute for a person to look like he or she spent an entire day at the beach. The stand-up Mystic Tan booth coats bodies from head-to-toe in a UV-free tanning solution, which darkens skin to a custom hue. Alternatively, visitors can opt for a traditional bed or a European-style "No-Burn" bed. The latter, which tans clients either standing up or lying down, bronzes skin without the use of UVB rays. To add a personalized touch to tanning sessions, Tropical Tan's staff can recommend tanning creams from the likes of John Abat? and other designer brands. They'll also special order products not in stock, provided they exist outside of a person's imagination.
