If Suntana’s staff of tanning specialists seems particularly knowledgeable about their trade, it may be because many of them are dedicated tanners as well. They draw on a combination of firsthand experience and industry know-how to help their clients achieve rich, golden skin tones courtesy of customized spray tans and three levels of UV tanning beds. Their expert guidance—along with moisturizing lotions from brands such as Designer Skin and Australian Gold—helps protect against the risks associated with overexposure or lowering oneself into a deep fryer.
Bodies emerge shades darker after a visit to Caribbean Breeze Tanning Resort. Five different styles of beds bronze clients at different intensities with a selection of lotions that encourage melanin’s climb to the surface of the skin. Airbrush tanning sessions use a pH-balanced solution that tints limbs with natural-looking shades, and patrons receive the UV-free burnish from a tanning specialist instead of automated machines that won't stop unless the patron invokes the First Law of Robotics.
Tan Time’s friendly team boosts complexions and relaxes muscles through a host of luxurious services. Custom spray tans leave skin glowing without exposing it to prickly UVA rays or beach-towel-stealing jellyfish. Choose your intended shade and watch with wide eyes as over the course of two sessions, your bleached-spaghetti limbs assume the appearance of a darker, healthier-looking, whole-wheat variety. Those seeking relaxation below the skin can opt for a 60-minute deep-tissue massage designed to release muscular fibers from the cast-iron chains that ground them to workaday worries. Kristina Edmondson, Tan Time’s licensed massage therapist, will use deep, slow strokes to dismantle stress clusters concentrated around your neck, back, and shoulders like an ocean wave eroding pirate teeth from its wind-swept shores.
Millionaire Matchmaker and Sprint might have more in common than you'd think. Both of them have used the Infinity Sun airbrush tanning system on TV, one on a reality show and one in an advertisement. With these TV spots, along with mentions on the Style network and a celebrity clientele, it is clear that the system is one of the best around. That's why Haute Tan uses it to bronze limbs. The system, designed by a Hollywood makeup artist, sun-kisses bodies with a serum devoid of harsh chemicals and full of all-natural ingredients, including antioxidants, pure botanicals, and bronze dyes filtered from captured sunrays.
At Lakeside Tan, it only takes nine minutes to gild skin in delicately darker tones. Not content with simply offering fast results, the tanning salon also offers three separate paths toward beach-fresh color, tempting clients with standup and traditional tanning beds as well as UV-free airbrush treatments. In addition to dressing skin in sun-kissed hues, patrons can also brighten smiles through simple, speedy BleachBright teeth whitening. An energizing, Fit body wrap helps shave inches of the hips and thighs, and, on the salon side, beauty products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty help maintain new looks long after appointments end.
At more than 140 locations across the country, the staff at Hollywood Tans maintains an average of 15 booths so its customers need not wait or make appointments for their tanning sessions. Each HT-manufactured, proprietary booth is set up vertically for a more sanitary experience, during which high-performance bulbs bronze bodies in less time than standard models. In addition to UV tanning, Mystic Tan vestibules send out mists of bronzers and moisturizers in one of four settings.
