Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
Owners Heather Harris and Corey Kolln believe in their practice’s powerful benefits, so much so that they encourage regular visits from customers through a membership program that offers deep discounts. Amid their office’s tranquil environment, they administer signature massages that focus on each client's specific problem areas, incorporating hot stones, aromatherapy, and steamed towels for maximum tension and stress relief. As an extra defense against muscle soreness, they can place herbal analgesic patches on muscles, helping to ease pain for up to two days while increasing the likelihood that family members will ask if you've been rolling around in the herb garden again.
At the clean and friendly Island Tanning, clients adopt a golden glow without stepping foot outdoors. Here, traditional UV tanning booths gild bodies quickly and evenly, while VersaSpa machines bronze skin instantly and with no UV exposure whatsoever. Hydration Stations, meanwhile, help to prolong tans by infusing skin with oxygen and nutrients, and can even help skin appear more toned.
Island Tanning also beautifies bodies with skin-healing red-light-therapy. The red light can help boost collagen production, fight acne bacteria, and provide pain relief, and may even help repair sun-damaged skin or balance naturally green complexions.
Licensed massage therapist Michelle Dusek helps clients of all shapes and sizes overcome the stresses of modern life. Michelle believes that because all bodies are built slightly differently, massages need to be fluid. For this reason, she conforms to an infinite number of body shapes like somebody who makes coffins for snowflakes.
Michelle works equally hard to keep clients comfortable throughout each session. During deep-tissue, trigger-point, or stretching sessions, clients relax on a thickly padded massage bed surrounded with glowing lanterns and potted plants. A large window admits cascades of natural light, letting clients' half-open lids keep tabs on the outside world.
Not satisfied with just serving up classic salon offerings, the multitalented staffers of Salon DeMara also use their experience to erase embarrassing tattoos and straighten locks using safe, effective treatments. Technicians remove unwanted ink souvenirs with the cutting edge EliminInk tattoo removal system, which traces an iron-binding agent over designs to lift out colors. When not removing tats, stylists can pick up their scissors, waxing wands, and coloring brushes. Classic salon treatments help patrons revamp manes or straighten their hair with zero-formaldehyde keratin treatments instead of tying strands to an anchor.
