Le Soleil Tanning's owner, Rachel Tanis, has been in fierce competition with the sun for four years. Since opening in 2008, she and her staff have gained the upper hand with Smart Tan certification, which gives them the tools to design safe tanning regimens for each skin type. Those hoping to avoid UV exposure step inside an automated VersaSpa spray booth, where special serums moisturize the skin with aloe vera and balance its pH before coating it in bronzer. Fresh, neatly folded hand towels sit atop Soltron and Ergoline beds radiating UV rays at three levels of intensity. The most powerful of these is a high-pressure Ergoline bed with an open, airy design that surrounds those within in UVA rays and tunes piped from its MP3-player dock. Part and parcel with creating the hallmark of health and youth, the studio offers red-light therapy that promotes collagen production for firm, smooth skin, and fights acne harder than a dermatologist with a soap-filled fire hose. The white lobby's glass shelves display nourishing lotions from Designer Skin and Swedish Beauty that aid the safe development of a rich, even color.

Inside the newly remodeled salon, Chavon and her staff pamper their clients from head to toe.

Additionally, custom airbrush tans bronze every inch of exposed skin.
AesthetiCare employs a highly experienced staff of medical professionals and certified aestheticians and utilizes up-to-date technology, including 18 FDA-approved lasers. The five-step medical microdermabrasion begins with a deep cleansing to remove dirt and cheese dip from pores. Next, stainless-steel diamond- encrusted wands remove dead layers of skin to reveal healthy dermis with no downtime. One of four light chemical peels assists in a deep exfoliation and skin-tightening treatment. BiO2 Oxy-Mist is applied, which uses a formula of amino acids, vitamins, and oxygen to help the face heal more efficiently. The microdermabrasion treatment's bell is rung with a facial moisturizer, which encourages new skin to emerge in a three-piece suit of radiance, with an improved appearance in regards to fine lines, scarring, sun spots, black heads, clogged pores, and hyperpigmentation.

Just because linear time is an illusion doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take some for yourself; call ahead to make a reservation.
