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.
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.
Skin Sense Solutions operates under the eye of Nina Butler, a licensed-and-certified aesthetician and permanent-cosmetics practitioner. Butler performs a variety of facial treatments, from exfoliating treatments powered by natural fruit extracts to age-specific sessions that target teenage problems such as excess oil or excessively obvious imprints gleaned from napping on spiral notebooks. She also administers waxing treatments as well as permanent-cosmetics applications that include free touchups after the initial appointments.
