Boca Tanning Club salons bronze clients with the help of super tanning beds and booths, as well as UV-free VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. Clients walk past the painted vines, rocks, and rainforest-themed decor before stepping into the spray-tanning booths, which gild limbs in 60 seconds, or into a super bed, which caramelizes skin in less time than a traditional bed. In private rooms, technicians wielding airbrush systems custom shade and contour muscles while de-emphasizing vestigial tails.
The potent rays of UV lamps soak skin in a bronzing glow as melodies find their way into ears thanks to the MP3 hookups in Legally Bronzed Tanning’s fleet of advanced horizontal and vertical tanning beds. Guests who wish to avoid UV light entirely can opt for custom airbrush tans, which imbue skin with a summery, streak-free glow without the potential risks of bathing in sun rays or a commercial deep fryer. The same airbrush artists who cover bodies in custom tans can also enhance beauty with makeup.
Bare Skin and Laser’s licensed medical aestheticians and certified laser technicians whisk away the fuzz and blemishes that obscure exteriors, revealing their clients’ underlying beauty. With the Palomar StarLux laser system, they permanently banish leg hair and liberate moustaches for mailing to Charlie Chaplin impersonators. Zeroing in on the skin itself, the technicians renew visages with treatments such as IPL skin rejuvenation and chemical peels that incorporate blueberry extracts and antioxidants as they improve skin’s appearance. In addition to refreshing epidermises, the center can also shade them with Bronze Biologic spray tans, imbuing a coppery glow that distracts from one’s extra bellybutton at the beach.
As the tanning bed's lid closes, a cool breeze starts to blow, a gentle mist cools your skin, and the scents of aromatherapy transform a 12-minute tanning session into a miniature vacation. This S-Class bed is just one of the approximately 10 tanning options that fill each of City Sun Tanning's locations. Staffers help clients select the right bed, leading them down hallways to an iBed sunbed—which features rotating facial lights—or a X-2 High Pressure bronzing stand-up, which can bronze pallid skin in ten minutes. Alternatively, visitors step onto the AutoBronzer's open-air platform, which evenly sprays UV-free tanning solution and candy sprinkles. In June of 2009, this sunless system caught the eye of New York Magazine, which lauded City Sun Tanning for having one of the "top five spray tans." The tanning salon has also garnered accolades from Citysearchers, who for several years, named it "Best of Citysearch".
Cindy Barshop may have a familiar face. She gained reality-TV fame as a cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she found success much earlier when the Madison Avenue spa she founded more than 10 years ago grew into a hair-removal brand known throughout the country. Completely Bare’s waxing specialists dab bikini lines with the shop’s proprietary blend of ouch-less wax, which adheres to hair instead of skin to avoid the painful pull that often accompanies a waxing session. The blend is hypoallergenic and does not cause acne, which makes it ideal for depilating sensitive skin and touchy bodily zones. Routine waxing sessions add extra sparkle with the salon’s vajazzling service, which bedecks newly hair-free spots with up to 70 Swarovski crystals arranged into such shapes as hearts, stars, peace signs, and MPAA ratings. The spa specialists also migrate beyond the below-the-belt area to polish the rest of the body with facials, laser hair removal, spray tanning, and teeth whitening.
No streaks, no smell, no orange. Scrub & Tan's specialists promise to avoid these and other spray tanning pitfalls through their skilled application of an organic solution. Before airbrushing skin, they exfoliate the body and face with one of seven sugar-based scrubs infused with vegan ingredients before wiping the skin clean with warm towels. This process creates a smooth surface for the tanning solution to soak in as it creates a bronzed hue that is more natural-looking than a toddler cradling a bonsai tree. The Delray Beach shop also outfits clients with trendy boutique clothing that hangs elegantly from racks nestled between chic black furnishings and crystal chandeliers.
