If humans were shaped like perfect rectangles, tanning would be easy. But since human bodies consist of various curves and nooks, the team at Tropical Lights Tanning Salon has acquired ergonomic tanning beds with built-in facial bulbs. Custom airbrush tans also adapt to body shapes, with expert technicians bronzing clients evenly and naturally.
Since introducing the FDA-approved, noninvasive VelaShape II technology to Westchester County residents in 2009, Synergy's licensed and certified staff has helped numerous bodies tone, tighten, and break free from lumpy fat cells. Working in a clean, upscale clinic, technicians bathe problem areas in a potent combination of mechanical massage, bi-polar frequency, infrared light, and suction to safely drain fat cells and sculpt limbs without subjecting clients to Michelangelo-esque temper tantrums. Additionally, because treatments don't break skin like classic liposuction, clients experience minimal downtime and can save Big Bird band-aids for decorating their cars' exteriors. VelaShape II takes no longer than 30 minutes per session and yields best results after an average of four–six treatments.
At more than 140 locations across the country, tanners stand and Hollywood Tans delivers. Each salon has an average of 15 Hollywood Tans–manufactured standup booths that gilt pelts with high-performance bulbs, resulting in speedy tans. Since each location offers so many booths, no appointments are needed and clients are rarely asked to wait around or scrounge for scraps of sunlight. For a UV-free experience, the salons furnish their glow spas with Mystic Tan, a standup spray-tan booth that operates at four levels in less than a minute. To keep hides healthy, the shops stock their own brand of lotions, skincare products, and shower gels.

After gliding over glistening wooden floors supporting chic, modern fixtures, licensed aesthetician Najia Rohlf and her team greet guests in need of custom skin revitalization. In the first phase of the 60-minute European facial, a staff member cleanses pores and dusts off skin detritus. Extraction follows exfoliation, and then the aesthetician sheathes skin with a mask designed to ward off cheek-pinching aunts. Finally, a moisturizer restores suppleness and vanishes croissant flakes holding on since breakfast. Following treatments, clients can admire their newly radiant visages in nearby storefront windows and crossing guards' suits of armor.
