The staff at Tan Factory bronzes their clients’ birthday suits with UV-free airbrush tanning for the entire body, enlisting the manmade sunshine found in California Tan products. During the 20-minute sessions, tanning technicians slather hides in sun-kissed hues that can last from 7–10 days or until clients tumble into a vat of Liquid Paper. Tan Factory continuously seeks out current technology and supplements its spray applications with lotions from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty. Tanning mavens recommend exfoliating beforehand and wearing loose clothing to the sessions, and recommends that customers avoid any moisturizers, fragrances, and laser-light shows on the day of the treatments.
Although aesthetician Nicole Maldonado is an expert wax technician, you won't find any wax in her studio. Instead, she removes unwanted hair with the same sugaring techniques the ancient Egyptians relied on. As a certified sugaring educator, she lauds the many benefits of sugar over wax. For one, sugar isn't hot, so there's no risk of clients getting burnt. For another, it eases out strands in their natural direction of growth to prevent breakage and ingrown hairs.

The technicians at Bella Body Sculpting at Body Spa West whittle waistlines, thighs, and arms with the help of noninvasive ultrasonic-cavitation treatments. Ultrasonic rays penetrate down to the fat cells and create temporary holes in their membranes without harming surrounding skin. The fat cells then release their stored fatty acids into the body and shrink, resulting in lost inches. The body is able to flush out the expelled fatty acids via the lymphatic system, or it burns them for energy.
