Sunkissed Tanning Salon’s mission to help customers brandish beachy glows relies on both UV and UV-free tanning options and products from brands such as JWoww, Pauly D, and Snooki, which can nourish skin and minimize fading. Four types of UV beds and booths darken skin with rays emitted by high-intensity bulbs that bestow bronze tones without extended sunbathing or hopping Apollo’s chariot. Inside the Playboy-airbrush room, staff members coat skin with hand-sprayed serums that mimic a traditional tanned look without UV exposure.
Since 1981, the experienced beauticians at Nina's New Image Salon have been extricating rogue hairs to reveal smooth skin surfaces. Using a combination of mind control and the clinging powers of heated wax, the professional pruners slim and shape eyebrows ($15), smooth underarms ($30), and de-hair lower legs ($50). Skin-smoothers can also opt for a full-facial wax ($45) to refine all surfaces of smile mantles, or revitalize torsos with a back or chest waxing ($60 each). The waxing session leaves skin free of fuzz for up to eight weeks, which is exactly how long it takes to mash eight potatoes with a pin.
Paradise Tan & Spa is a roomy facility saturated with relaxing atmosphere, where eager aesthetes can unwind for a 20-minute bout of beam-based beautification. This red-light rejuvenation therapy blasts away blemishes with an array of LED bulbs to stimulate specific skin cells. The treatment helps reduce sun spots, even unbalanced pigmentation, decrease pore size, and soften skin, all preferable to green-light therapy, which turns patients into post-pubescent tortoise samurai. Patrons repose in a relaxing recliner while the Lumiere technology works its scarlet spells and crimson charms over three separate sessions.
Secret Sun's sunless tanning methods imbue hides with healthy glows throughout the entire year. The UV-free spray tans shower clients in a bronze mist in the hue of their choice, darkening their skin tone without the hassle of colonizing the sun. Clients can get one tan in preparation for a beach outing, or a series of three to sustain sunny looks throughout the harsh winter months. Those who prefer ultraviolet authenticity can opt for a month of unlimited tanning-bed use, which allows them to stop by the salon whenever the thirst to fill-up on synthetic sun-juice strikes.
The staff at 360 Day Spa help clients unwind and feel pampered both physically and mentally with a wide range of spa services such as massages, mani-pedis, and facials. The massage therapists rub away stress and relieve muscles with a variety of different modalities, such as Swedish, sport, or deep tissue. They also have spa techs perform mani-pedi services and facial services, with the goal of bringing out each guest's innate beauty. 360 Day Spa also supplies a range of tanning beds and UV-free Mystic spray-tan booths along with both monthly and annual memberships to keep bodies bronzed. Level 2 beds build on their Level 1 brethren with dedicated facial tanning bulbs, and the upright Level 3 tanning booth provides even coverage from all angles.
The staff at Sun's Edge Tanning keeps client skins golden with airbrush and UV tanning options. They also complement those options with massages and bodywork performed by licensed therapists, as well as juices and protein shakes from the fruit-juice bar.
