Since opening in 1998, Tans To Go continues to bronze its guests with a selection of equipment that includes six tanning beds and custom airbrush tanning. UV-based tanning comes in both bed and booth form, embedded with radiant bulbs of up to 400 watts that target the body and face. Resident airbrush artists imbue hides with a tanning mist that moisturizes the skin as it does its best impersonation of the sun. Before customers choose a bronzing method, Tans To Go's friendly, helpful staff can help make the decision easier with advice and answers to tanning questions.
• For $29, you get one month of unlimited UV tanning (up to a $70 value). • For $29, you get three airbrush spray-tan sessions (a $105 value). Colour U Tan's beautifiers brown sun-starved bodies with professionally applied spray tan and boost vitamin D levels with four varieties of UV beds. Elevate epidermises to an all-natural golden buff with three airbrush tanning sessions, which employ expertly and evenly applied South Seas spray tan that can last up to 10 days, before fading naturally. The sugar-cane-based tanner mingles with the skin's amino acids to create natural-looking color and a glow as brilliant as Aristotle in a neon suit. UV devotees can cultivate bronzed frames in three different beds and one stand-up booth, varying in exposure time from 12 to 20 minutes. Both packages include a $5 credit toward airbrush products or tanning lotion to correspond with UV-free, UV-full, or desert-wandering UV-overfull options.
Inside Executive Tans' welcoming salon, a quartet of UV-tanning beds and an experienced airbrush-tanning artist await to burnish skin in a sultry summer glow. The selection of UV bed styles includes one standup booth and the Classic Legs bed, which only tans the gams to match more naturally tan upper bodies or to even out sock and ankle-watch tan lines. Coating bods in a UV-free tan, the trained staff wields an airbrush wand to spray skin in a finely textured pigmented mist, leaving skin with a streak-free glow lasting for five to seven days. Patrons can don one of the salon's paper bikinis or bring their own swimsuit, resting assured that the nonstaining spray easily washes out of clothing. The salon's shelves are stocked in a variety of tanning lotions, which hydrate skin while prolonging tans for weeks of beachside strolls or parading around Antarctica to make the citizens jealous.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. A dedicated full-time cleaning staff regularly runs through a 50-point inspection process between sessions, helping to create a sanitary tanning experience and keep clients from warming up 6-foot-long paninis during appointments.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. Wielding infrared heat and nutrient-shrouding steam, the moisturizing Hydro-Derma Fusion machine can help slake parched pores, increase collagen production, and replenish water reserves stored in vestigial dromedary humps. Erase evidence of eye-roosting crows and firm facial terrain with a luminous facial, which joins forces with topical skincare salves and dietary supplements to help stimulate cellular renewal and remove the velvet rope separating inner and outer beauty. The aqua-massage bed relieves muscle tension with a combination of warmth and water pressure. Like gullible brain surgeons, the skin’s natural defense systems are tricked into healing themselves with red-light-therapy treatments, which can help generate new collagen, reduce fine lines, and clear blocked pores.
The sun shines year-round at Tropical Tans, where a staff strives to give clients natural-looking color. After learning a guest’s envisioned results, the staff pairs them with a tanning bed in one of three levels or prescribes airbrush spray tanning, a UV-free formula that coin collectors often use to make their pennies more appealing and fresh-looking to buyers.
