An oasis of UV equipment develops rich base colors inside Downtown Tans, which itself is nestled inside Alter Ego Fitness. Spray tanning has no place within the light-based center. The staff maintains high-pressure booths from Hollywood Tans and The Solar System that principally emit UVA light, blocking out most UVB rays that stimulate exfoliation and cause tans to fade. Recognizing that a healthy, long-lasting glow must be nurtured, the staff eagerly shares advice on how to create a base tan in two to three sessions. Clients can also invest in memberships so that their well-earned tans won't invert in moon light.
Whether the desired effect is an incrementally darker hue or a deep tan that says “I just spent a week either on the sun or in Cairo,” the airbrush specialists at Golden Gator Airbrush Tanning customize each airbrush session with organic Norvell Amber Sun solution. They harness more than nine years of experience as they camouflage varicose veins and blend unwanted tan lines while bestowing skin with a streak-free finish in one of eight natural-looking shades. The studio's large tanning area is fully ventilated to ensure that excess particles of the tanning solution won't compromise guests' even tans. All sessions conclude with a powdered drying technique so that guests can saunter outside directly after tans without sticky or still-wet skin.
When Lauren Anderson joined her sister Kelley at the helm of LAE Beauty, she didn’t need many introductions. People already knew the confident blonde from her centerfold in Playboy. Though more than a decade has passed since Lauren’s first magazine appearance, her impact on the beauty industry continues to grow. With the help of highly specialized staffers, including a physician and licensed aesthetician, LAE Beauty offers an assortment of beautifying services, from tanning and facials to botox and medical weight-loss treatments.
Tan USA's staff readies bodies for the beach with three services: UV tanning, organic airbrush tans, and infrared body wraps. They whittle waists with the Formostar Encore body-wrap treatment, which helps patrons sweat away calories and toxins inside private treatment rooms replete with TVs, DVD players, and walls. They also wield airbrushes loaded with organic Norvell products to create custom tans without harmful rays and oversee a fleet of standup and lie-down UV-tanning beds.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro massages and teeth whitening to spray tanning and luminous facials. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Standard UV tanning booths are available ($12.50 value per session, $25 for high-pressure beds) along with Mystic spray tanning ($29 per session) for a light butterscotch topping. Advanced spa services, such as HydroDerma fusion, infrared sauna time, and light therapy facials ($39 per session) provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
The staff members of Tan USA Nashville pride themselves on taking care of their equipment, a lineup that includes five types of lie-down and standup tanning beds, as well as a Mystic Tan booth. Clients can purchase monthly packages or tanning credits, the latter of which can be used toward any bed without upgrade fees. To amplify the beds' effects, to improve tans, Tan USA supplies tanning lotions and premade stories about how much fun you had at the beach.
