Across five locations, the technicians at Tan It All point patrons in the direction of up to five levels of UV beds or three types of sunless-tanning technology. The staff can perform a complimentary skin-type analysis and recommend a custom tanning schedule in UV-B or high-pressure UV-A beds for optimal results. Guests seeking quick coverage can opt for a VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booth session or a custom spray tan applied by an experienced airbrush artist.
Licensed waxing professionals perform hair-removal services that ready legs for the beach or upper lips for high-profile harmonica solos. The team also offers soothing infrared-light therapy and teeth-whitening treatments.
Professionally trained in the art of ultraviolet light, the staff at Aruba Tan is full of experts when it comes to sunless tanning and infrared saunas. Armed with an array of lie-down tanning beds that range in intensity, technicians work with each guest to ensure that they tan safely based on their skin type and the extent to which they wish to mock ancient sun gods. In addition to the beds, techs also transform alabaster skinscapes into bronzed masterpieces with a variety of spray-tanning services. During these treatments, they douse skin in a steady stream of instantly drying solutions that adhere to superficial proteins in the skin and downshift the hues. Beyond tanning services, the studio also helps guests detoxify, ease pain, and boost weight-loss programs with their namesake smartsweat infrared-saunas, which send beams of heat energy deep into skin to help mend a range of bodily issues.
The staff at Darque Tan learned the science of tanning through Smart Tan certification, which they rely on to design efficient, safe regimes for each client's skin type. Five levels of PCTan beds and booths can bronze skin with as few as 12 minutes of UV exposure while enveloping skin in cooling mist. Automated airbrush tanning in VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booths create even, natural-looking color that masks scars and stretch marks. Darque Tan's pursuit of convenience is further exemplified with business hours that span seven days a week, a minimum of 20 beds per location, and rec rooms where kids can read and watch TV. A crew of professional cleaners details each of the facilities according to a rigorous 50-point inspection and tips gleaned from reading Mr. Clean's LiveJournal.
The sun beats down on Austin throughout the year, but savvy locals know that they don't need to bask in its rays to achieve a rich tan. Bronzed Glo Airbrush Tanning's technicians bronze skin with a Sol Potion tanning system that they can apply in-house or on location. They use a handheld device to spray a fine mist of UV-free solution across the skin, creating a natural glow without the sun's skin-damaging side effects. To extend the lifespan of their tans, the technicians offer a range of add-ons. One of these is a pretan exfoliation spray that balances the skin's pH levels; another is a double dip that adds a second coat of tanning spray or chocolate.
The technicians at Studio Bella Spa work to preserve clients' beauty longer than a cat's nine lives. Working diligently, the specially trained staffers work to accentuate the arches of eyebrows, the blushes of lips, or even the hues of beauty marks with permanent makeup. The spa's organic teeth-whitening and spray-tanning sessions produce brilliant-white smiles and golden physiques. Meanwhile, microdermabrasion treatments restore and rejuvenate the skin's surface by exfoliating dead skin cells and encouraging cell turnover for brighter, more even skin.
A recent addition to the Austin community, X-Treme Tan pairs its bronzing services with a mission to educate locals on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. An array of tanning beds ranging from levels 1–5 are available to guests and geared toward various skin types and goals. The Level 5 Matrix basks bodies in the maximum 33,00 watts of of sun-imitating power and is the only machine of its kind in the area. Each bed and stand-up pod graces torsos and limbs with color in sessions that last 20 minutes or less. For those who prefer to stay vertical, a Level 4 Quantum standup booth shades skin in 10 minutes with a fleet of 51 refractor bulbs. Light-shy folk and Greta Garbo impersonators will favor custom spray tans. The formulas by Norvell Skin Solutions offer clients a choice of different shades to match their skin's undertone and are applied by Cedar Park's only Norvell-certified airbrush technicians.
