Each of Seattle Sun Tan's 39 locations spans between 2,000 and 4,000 square feet of space dedicated solely to the art of un-sunbathing. Washington-state tanners strut down immaculate hallways dotted with framed original paintings and contemporary artwork before settling into private rooms where they may acquire their desired shade while enjoying the sounds of their own music or prerecorded subliminal messages piped in through the iPod dock perched near each bed. The Smart Tan–certified staff guides clients in selecting which of the five levels of UV bed best fits their tanning needs and whether they desire a short tan time, prefer to stand up or lie down, or wish to bask beneath high-pressure face lamps. Shop shelves offer home tanners quality products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, whereas spray-tanning options from VersaSpa and SunFX both impart a natural-looking faux glow that takes mere minutes to apply and lasts for days.
Since opening in 1982, Tropical Tan has become a go-to bronzing spot with a wide range of state-of-the-art tanning beds and UV-free spray-tanning booths housed in clean, private rooms. Level 1 or 2 tanning grants access to lower-watt bed options, ideal for novices building base tans or wilted plants seeking a fortifying light source. Level 3, 4, and 5 beds imbue skin with a deeper burnish. UV-free Mystic Tanning spritzes skin with a DHA-infused tanning mist that covers limbs with an even, natural-looking glow.
Noninvasive spa treatments such as red-light therapy diminish signs of aging and improve skin tone with UV-free rays.

North West Med Spa’s skilled technicians lure inner radiance to the skin's surface with a range of custom beauty services, from body wraps and sugar waxing to light-powered photofacials. A complimentary skin analysis precedes each facial treatment, allowing aestheticians to measure the extent of sun damage, wrinkles, and thorny rosacea gardens before proceeding. Rejuvenating DermaQuest and G.M. Collin products, along with the undulating paddle of the Multiderm skin-exfoliation system, assist them as they craft custom treatments to promote healthy, glowing complexions. Among the spa’s other noninvasive skin procedures, VelaShape body-contouring treatments buff out discrepancies in tone and Botox injections erase evidence of sustained squints or frowns.
After beginning with six modest traditional beds in 1990, Tropical Tan has expanded its body-bronzing pursuits to include 24 UV- and spray-tanning units housed within a pristine, violet boutique. Reflecting the salon's commitment to client comfort, UV beds combat claustrophobia with wide openings and display an intuitive control panel that empowers guests to program their preferred shade. Airbrush consultants dispense personalized tips for UV-free tanners, along with directions for navigating the Norvell sunless spray-tanning booth's passage into Narnia. The salon also stocks body products from brands such as CalTan, Designer Skin, Australian Gold, MR International, and Swedish Beauty, which condition skin to deepen and sustain new hues.
