Unique Tan's Smart Tan?certified staff members use their extensive knowledge to help color seekers pursue an optimal bronze glow at a trio of tanning salons. Guests step into private, standup Mystic spray-tan booths, where an automated system sprays a custom color solution filled with collagen and neutraceuticals across the body, much like a jaunt through a sprinkler but with even, perfect aim. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes. Meanwhile, a fleet of UV beds equipped with gentle high-pressure bulbs, cooling systems, and individual music selections bronzes bodies in short bursts. Additionally, the Twilight Teeth whitening option can brighten smiles during tanning sessions in a bed or at home with easily affixed mouthpieces.
