The New You's licensed aestheticians ensconce fatigued figures in therapeutic wraps that aim to expel impurities and trim waistlines. After an initial consultation and health evaluation, wrap-ready patrons snuggle inside a layer of linens before being tucked in a temperature-raising Far Infrared sauna blanket that heats bodies still chilled after weeks spent catching frozen shrimp in the Arctic. Meditation and music selections help the mind rest, relax, or relive the height of the '90s party-rap era, and the friendly staff imparts body-wrapping knowledge throughout the session.
Image Sun Tanning Center’s professional tanning consultants add sun-kissed color to their clients' bods with a variety of airbrush services and tanning beds. Before patrons begin tanning treatments, specialists perform a complimentary skin-type analysis, which gauges the proper tanning equipment, power, and session time to prevent burning while building a deep base tan. The salon’s private tanning rooms stock up to four levels of UV beds, which use variable doses of bronzing rays to gradually build up a golden complexion like a game of patty-cake with King Midas. Sun-shy clients can bypass ultraviolet exposure inside a Mystic Tan booth, which spritzes pasty torsos in just minutes. The high-end tanning tonic dries quickly, leaves skin oozing a breezy tropical scent, and—like the embarrassment of calling your boss "Dad"—fades in about one week. The salon also supplies a stock of tan-enhancing lotions from brands such as Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Designer Skin.
