At Ultimate Tan, a team of Smart Tan-certified professionals help clients obtain rich tans suited to their skin type and individual needs. They start by discussing the benefits of their eight U.S.-manufactured UV beds, each replete with surround sound and body fans. Those beds provide four varying levels of bronzing, with tan times ranging between nine and 20 minutes. Those seeking sunless options, on the other hand, will be walked through the use of an automated Versa Spa spray booths. Versa Spa mists clients in golden clouds, providing three tanning levels and a choice of immediate bronzers or clear solutions, along with moisturizing treatments, which can be included to prolong the life of the tan.
Dedicated to enhancing natural beauty, the team at Ultimate Tan also offers teeth whitening, lash extensions, and body wraps designed to shed five to 15 inches per treatment. Speaking of weight loss, the staff can also administer ultrasonic-cavitation treatments. A non-invasive procedure, ultrasonic-cavitation breaks down fatty cells, which then escape the body via natural processes or the nearest window.
It begins with a facial massage with MMIV shave oil, creating a protective barrier and conditioning the skin with Vitamin E. Next, warm towels open pores, soften scruff, and relax muscles without the adverse and downright weird affects of a horse tranquilizer. Finally, hand-whipped MMIV shave cream coats jawlines, another product packed with Vitamin E as well as green tea. This process comprises just the preliminary steps for an Ultimate Shave at M.U.G. Men's Ultimate Grooming. Once faces are prepped, specially trained barbers shave with, and then against, the grain. Then, they wrap smooth faces in a cool towel before spreading on moisturizer like butter on a dry Thanksgiving turkey—but without Grams and Aunt Carol watching closely.
All of the MMIV products are exclusive to M.U.G. Its masterminds spent almost a decade formulating them specifically for the Ultimate Shave, making sure each held an ample amount of conditioning Vitamin E. The staff, which also cuts and colors hair, trusts in the products so fully that they'll give you a refund if the MMIV line doesn't deliver the closest shave since Napoleon bear-crawled away from Waterloo, sobbing into his epaulets.
Fuchsia lives up to its incandescent name: its hot-pink walls vibrate under shimmering chandeliers. The pink ceiling curves and cuts away to expose industrial chrome pipes reflecting the script of a neon fuchsia Fuchsia sign. Profiled by ABC's The Revolution, Good Morning Arizona, and magazines such as Everyday with Rachael Ray, the spa pampers its guests so thoroughly, it's earned a spot on Gayot's list of Top 10 Value Spas in the world.
Visitors call in or make online appointments to be bundled in body wraps, receive custom facials, or spruce up their nails. Massages take place in private suites where customers can tune into their own iPods, and hair-removal services prep parties for windstorms in velcro factories. The spa also contains a blow-dry bar, a makeup-artistry station, and shelves and racks of boutique apparel, accessories, and skincare products.
Convenience comes first at Celebrity Tanning, where a plethora of metro locations, extended hours, and a large lineup of tanning equipment ensure clients can achieve a sun-kissed glow with minimum fuss. Four tiers of UV beds offer escalating amenities that add to the comfort and efficacy of tanning sessions, incorporating extra facial tanners, aromatherapy, MP3 hookups, and inspirational posters of famous suns from other galaxies. For more immediate results, the salon?s automated Mystic Tan booth sends sweeping jets of misted bronzer over bodies to create a streak-free tan that lasts 7?10 days after one 60-second session. The staff of tanning specialists can help customers choose the right type of session for their skin or budget, answering any questions that may come up. Tan-prolonging lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and California Tan are also available to enhance the depth and duration of a tan without equipping clothes with UVA bulbs.
The technicians and physicians at Simplicity Laser Hair Removal work to evict wily follicle lodgers of all colors with advanced hair-razing equipment that combines FDA-approved diode, Nd:Yag, and alexandrite lasers. Customers can gently pulverize strands in one body area with six or eight treatments of concentrated pulsed photons, which coax squatting body threads out of their skin shelters with laser wavelengths and candy. Alternatively, opt for a full year of treatments to tackle multiple areas across unlimited visits. Simplicity Laser Hair Removal's triad of modern laser technologies promises safe and effective treatment during each session of 30 minutes or less. Although these treatments can be effective in permanently reducing unwanted fuzz, most patients require 8–12 sessions for full reduction due to hair-growth dormancy, laser-absorption rates, and hard-to-locate follicle foxholes.
Selecting Goldwell, Moroccanoil, and TIGI products from their granite-topped stations, Epic Salon's hairstylists put the finishing touches on new haircuts, freshened colors, or newly straightened locks. In addition to elevating clients? appearances with services such as keratin treatments and highlights, the stylists literally take hair to new heights by deftly twirling strands into elegant updos and stretch styles downward with Great Lengths hair extensions, which boast a texture even nicer than al dente spaghetti. The salon's aestheticians wax away unwanted body hair, treat cheeks to classic European facials, and reveal radiant skin with Jessner, retinol, and TCA peels.
