Caribbean Island Tanning Center lives up to its tropical name in a literal way, bringing the best of summer indoors with its sandy beach, decorative palm trees, and vibrant collection of blue and yellow beach huts. The salon’s beachy vibe doesn’t end there, as more than 20 tanning units imbue skin with a bronze hue ready-made for an island vacation. Alongside a Mystic Tan booth with three levels of sunless tanning solutions, the salon features comfortable lie-down beds that harness UV rays to promote a healthy glow. Special leg tanners regulate uneven thigh tones, and a UV teeth-whitening system casts the sun’s light on smiles and pasty tooth fairies.
Tommy’s Tanning offers customers more than two dozen bronzing options, from single-session spray tans for special occasions to yearly memberships inside five levels of tanning beds. The vertical and horizontal beds imbue skin with color while cooling faces and playing music for a more comfortable tanning session. For UV-free color, VersaSpa spray-tanning booths coat the skin in a streak-free glow, all while the client stands in a comfortable, wide-open interior.
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.
With a focus on safe and healthy skincare, Caribbean Tan bronzes and rejuvenates pallid body plains with pristine, state-of-the-art technology. UV-free red-light therapy stimulates lazy metabolisms and spruces up sagging skin with help from penetrating LED light rays and subliminal messages from L.L. Cool J. Deep layers of collagen and elastin are stimulated by the process, firming the outer surface and improving overall skin suppleness. The crimson beams can also help to reduce existing blemishes and fine lines, correct sun damage, and counteract naturally green complexions.
A brushed metal sign atop a cabinet of top industry products sets the stage for the experience at Pacific Sun Tanning Company—a contemporary tanning salon rated No. 1 by the readers of Reno News & Reviews for the last five years. The salon's UV specialists undertake Smart Tan's comprehensive certification before bending the sun's radiation to their will, learning the ins and outs of ray exposure, selecting ideal skincare products, and discerning which compliments will coax Helios into sharing his private stash of solar beams. They can also eschew the sun entirely and bestow beachy glows through custom spray-tan services. The popular tanning facilities and the staff's enthusiastic demeanor have expanded into six locations throughout the Reno and Sparks.
