No matter what kind of tans clients are looking for, tanning experts analyze skin types and goals to help them choose the lotions, equipment, and perfect crayon shades to fit their needs.
For tan-free options, infrared body wraps melt inches, and Hydration Stations combine radiant heat, steam, and vibrations to turn tight muscles into butter.

A brushed metal sign atop a cabinet of top industry products sets the stage for the experience at Pacific Sun Tanning Company—a contemporary tanning salon rated No. 1 by the readers of Reno News & Reviews for the last five years. The salon's UV specialists undertake Smart Tan's comprehensive certification before bending the sun's radiation to their will, learning the ins and outs of ray exposure, selecting ideal skincare products, and discerning which compliments will coax Helios into sharing his private stash of solar beams. They can also eschew the sun entirely and bestow beachy glows through custom spray-tan services. The popular tanning facilities and the staff's enthusiastic demeanor have expanded into six locations throughout the Reno and Sparks.
With Posaré Salon built upon three essential r’s of salon and spa service—relax, revive, and replenish—experienced staffers wield a bounty of professional products as they seek to treat clientele like royalty. Those fundamentals emerge most clearly in Posare Salons' Pink Room, where patients undergoing cancer treatment enjoy complimentary salon services and can audition affordable wigs from Las Vegas Wigs. Throughout the rest of the salon, stylists and aestheticians perform an abundance of pampering treatments from spa pedicures to permanent eyelash extensions. The med-spa branch additionally clears epidermises of acne and wrinkles, dispenses flu shots to shield patients from severe sniffles, and supplies melancholic music suggestions for visitors with crippling disco fever.
The highly trained makeover mavens at Mia Bella Salon & Spa nurture clients in a relaxing oasis with head-to-toe beauty services. A 30-minute craniosacral therapy massage lifts heavy heads with gentle work on the noggin, face, neck, and base of the spine, and may help provide relief for chronic headaches, neck, or back pain ($50). A quick alternative to a peel, the microdermabrasion facial treatment leaves skin smooth and rejuvenated ($35).
The aestheticians at The Spa at Lakeside 2.0 invigorate bodies with purifying skin scrubs, relaxing massages, and cleansing mini facials. The therapeutic sea salt and sugar scrub unites olive, safflower, and jojoba with sugar to rid the body of freeloading cells, softening and moisturizing skin in the process. An Indian head massage slackens tense muscles in the neck, shoulders, and upper back as patrons overlook the lake from the spa's back terrace, barring inclement weather or nature going on strike. Or opt for a 25-minute full-body Swedish massage, during which licensed massage therapists apply a seed-oil-based gel and knead bodies with long, flowing strokes, which, like handing out free copies of a magazine, can increase circulation. An accompanying mini facial exfoliates skin and soothes faces with a steam and customized mask.
