Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.

Signature Salon’s experienced aestheticians revamp mugs with four one-hour facial treatments. After entering the modern setting bedecked with dangling vines and boldly painted walls, guests meet with an epidermal expert for a quick consultation to assess skin’s woes and career ambitions before beginning one of four targeted facials. Signature facials renew lackluster skin with a deep cleansing and exfoliation, and aromatherapy sessions soothe both skin and souls by adding blissful scents and permanent scratch and sniff tattoos. Clogged-up pores cower in fear during acne facials, which perform raids against blemish-causing excess oil. Much like a disheveled super hero, anti-aging facials do battle with unwanted wrinkles, revamping skin and helping reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Tina Malooly-McCaffrey—a sufferer of severe acne with a family history of skin cancer—has devoted her career to learning about dermis health, and she founded Advanced Skincare in 1989 to help patrons realize dreams of glowing complexions. The licensed cosmetologist, massage therapist, laser technician, and skincare educator has gathered a team of licensed and certified pampering professionals to rejuvenate facades. With every service, from anti-aging facials to microdermabrasion treatments to help blast away dead skin cells and outdated "Vote for Lincoln" henna tattoos, the staff assesses skin and health for personalized treatment plans. Beyond skincare, the beauty experts also apply professional-level makeup and administer advanced IPL hair removal for the entire body to save clients the hassle of waxing, tweezing, or rolling on a pile of Velcro.
