Voted a CitySearch favorite spot for tanning from 2005 to 2009, SunWerks has earned its patrons’ loyalty by offering flexibility: tanning takes place inside four levels of sun beds and within the mists of three different styles of spray-tan services. Not content to merely bronze hides, the salon also sets calories ablaze during skinny wrap sessions, which use six silicone pads to blast fat more effectively than a butter-seeking missile. Pure Collagen Tower red-light collagen treatments roll back the body's clock by abolishing wrinkles and saggy jowls.
Platinum Tans' friendly staff accommodates bodies with sundry skin-bronzing options, including 11 tanning beds, a Mystic tanning booth, and personalized airbrush services. Limbs new to the fine art of sunbathing can soak in rays in tier-one beds for 10 minutes, and the medium-level, tier-two beds darken hides in 20 minutes sandwiched between horizontal bulbs or in 12 minutes within a stand-up booth. The high-level, tier-three beds maintain and deepen an already-sun-kissed epidermis in 15 minutes, reserved for those with a solid base tan or a signed note from Apollo.
The professionals at Captive Tan caramelize customers' canvases with 14 UV-tanning beds and introductory tanning packages, which include one Ultra, Elite, Super, and Premium tanning session. Ultra tanning hammocks, fraught with high-pressure bulbs that, like ripened sunflowers, emit 99.9% UVA rays, illuminate hides with an even bronze glow. Alternatively, the Elite light bunks emit undulating rays with high-pressure facial bulbs and medium-pressure body bulbs. A Super bed packs miniature suns along the sides of its upright shell to accommodate vertical sleepers, and a Premium tanning bed uses classic, low-pressure bulbs to nudge skin into a more seasonal shade of brown.
Inside a boutique-like studio, The Glow Lounge’s certified airbrush artists conjure sunless shades of bronze with customized and vitamin-enriched tanning solutions. The Evolv Sidekick machine is designed to keep skin toasty with an applicator that triggers the heat-activated bronzing solution and a stream of hot air recycled from political speeches. After the consultation, the technician formulates the client's custom color. The solution mimics a natural tan, nourishing cells with tea-tree and grape-seed oil as well as erythrulose and DHA, which encourage color to last longer. Shades last for up to eight days, depending on the type and amount of solution applied as well as proper prep and aftercare.
Catch a Tan shimmers skin with UV-free Mystic Tan treatments in a comfortable salon setting. Clients can quickly darken epidermises with four levels of tanning treatment, customized for their individual skin tone, desired level of color, and ability to sense storms coming. In a private heated booth, jets gently spritz the tanning formula from side to side, bronzing bodies from head to toe and sealing in sparkle more securely than a roll of jewel-encrusted duct tape. The warm mist coats clients as they rotate between four different positions, drying completely with heated air that radiates throughout the booth like a sociable zephyr. The salon's interior glimmers with golden hues and wooden accents as the amiable staff readily offers advice on the extensive selection of tanning products, which have all been personally autographed by the sun.
Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the Smart Tan-certified staff over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.
