Though tanning can be relaxing, it can also be time-consuming. Tanning on the Edge's service menu was designed for people who want to tan but may have limited time. During 12- to 15-minute sessions in the tanning beds, guests stay cool and relaxed with circulating air and a satellite radio. A vertical booth accommodates patrons who prefer to tan while standing or who don’t understand how to turn the party sub they are carrying lengthwise.
Nearby, a full lineup of spa services make sure guests are radiant from head to toe. Cosmetologists use Pharmagel and Repêchage products in spa facials designed to clear up acne, firm aging faces, or simply boost radiance. Nail experts turn up the luxury on manicures and pedicures with add-ons such as paraffin dips, acrylic tips, and nail gems, while waxing specialists remove fuzz from nearly any area of the body to make tans stand out.
The beauty professionals at Indira Salon and Spa foster serenity with eco-conscious Aveda products. As stylists trim, dye, and texture hair, aestheticians revive skin with Aveda's signature plant-based facials. The staff infuses each of their services with extra touches of luxury, such as soothing noses stressed by bickering eyebrows with aromatherapy during elemental massages and offering complimentary makeup touchups after waxing. Nail technicians lavish hands and feet with masques, steam towels, and massages during even their most basic manicures and pedicures, some of which also include foot reflexology or balms made from ginger, mango, cocoa, and lime.
Nestled inside of Sola Salon Studios, Infinique Skin & Spa gussies up gents and beautifies belles with a host of different spa and skin-based services, often with a twist. For instance, rather than turn to conventional hair removal methods like waxing, Infinque uses Nufree, a botanical product that produces less pain during treatments. They kick microdermabrasion up by one whole notch with Skinmaster technology. Skinmaster not only exfoliates like traditional microdermabrasion, but it also gives lift to the skin by adding machine and electrical energy. Infinique rounds off its menu of services with a full complement of customized facials, pain-controlled permanent cosmetics, brow and lash tinting, lash perming, and Brazilian waxes.
Helmed by certified physician Richard Parfitt, AestheticA Skin Health Center staffs a squad of experienced medical professionals all skilled at the art of hair eradication using the concentrated heat of a high-power Intense Pulsed Light laser. IPL is known to reduce hair in a virtually pain-free procedure that some have said is less painful than waxing or whittling with a dull stick. The included initial consultation (a $30 value) takes about 30 minutes, with the procedure itself lasting roughly 15 to 30 minutes per session. AestheticA's experienced, licensed staff will do its best to make customers feel comfortable in a relaxing spa-like environment. Laser therapy can ensure a relentlessly smooth surface that won't compromise times at the human-dolphin relay leg of the upcoming swim meet.
At Sunseekers Tan, skin darkens beneath five types of tanning bed and in front of the nozzles of the Mystic Tan sunless spray system. Customers can augment their tanning experiences with an array of lotions to keep skin from drying out, flaking, and falling into someone's cereal bowl.
TAN'R YOU was voted the Best Tanning in Milwaukee for 2008 and 2009 by CityVoters, who cited its accommodating facilities and fully air-conditioned tanning beds. A gold-colored floor ushers pale hides down a hallway of individual bronzing rooms stocked with top-of-the-line pigmentation machinery. The High Pressure MATRIX bed is an import from Italy that tans in 12 minutes while treating clients to music from its CD player / stereo and using high-pressure negotiating tactics to send paleness packing. For those who have already positioned their real sleeping bed directly under their bedroom's sunniest window, the Cabana Mist tanning booth provides a convenient vertical service while evenly painting the body with smooth shades of spring and summer.
