With many locations throughout Washington, Tan Republic outfits their salons with sleek, modern designs and earth-toned walls, filling private tanning rooms with a suite of melanin-conjuring machines. Guests can choose from Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths, high-pressure tanning beds, or jars full of fireflies that can be held against the skin for a natural glow. The salons also offer six varieties of lotion, each formulated for specific bronzing needs.
The Ultimate Tan & Med Spa's locations house traditional and UV-free tanning equipment alongside teams that are certified to perform a slate of med-spa and salon treatments. Cosmetic injectables, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels aim to restore epidermal radiance, and ThinSpa weight-loss plans and CelluPulse cellulite-removal treatments help clients shift into a svelter shape. To soothe away accumulated stresses, massage therapists customize sessions to each client’s unique needs, drawing from a range of modalities to leave musculature more relaxed than a zen master’s stress ball.
When the owners of Celebrity Tan decided to open a med spa, it wasn't much of a leap. After all, they were already old pros at finding and stocking their posh salons with the most efficient, high-end tanning equipment they could get their hands on. They used this same approach when it came to Celebrity Spa: clients can achieve radiant, youthful appearances without the hazards of surgery with treatments from Venus Concept, Obagi Medical, and other cutting-edge brands. Aesthetic experts use the crystal-free DiamondTome skin-resurfacing system to buff away dull skin and signs of aging with the power of natural diamond chips. The Venus Freeze, which has been featured on The Doctors, helps tighten sagging jowls, loose skin, and baggy sweaters with laser energy. For even more anti-aging power, the spa also offers Botox injections that help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, technicians wield lasers to remove unwanted body hair.
Upon entering the salon, newbies receive a tour of Tanning Oasis's relaxing environs, where a fleet of modern UV tanning beds and VersaSpa spray-tan booths forges bronzed bods. VersaSpa booths spritz clients with three different solutions to leave skin golden and hydrated without exposing it to UV rays. Physiques receive a triplet of treatments from a movable nozzle, which first distributes a skin primer to prep cells before setting limbs aglow with a bronzer and finally injecting each pore with a moisturizing formula. Level 1, 2, and 3 beds employ varying quantities of bulbs to darken skin in 10–15 minutes, whereas Level 4 beds cloak corpuses in a uniform sheen in about 60 seconds. Tanning Oasis's friendly staffers happily answer questions about tanning goals, skincare products, and how the themes of Macbeth relate to the current political climate.
The technology-driven treatments inside Islands Tanning MedSpa help bolster the body's glow and reduce its circumference. Inside Magic and Tanses UV beds, 12,800-watt bulbs saturate skin with darkening rays more safely than receiving a hug from a dwarf star. Meanwhile, UV-free Mystic and VersaSpa machines spray the epidermis with a bronze hue, and Fit body wraps fuse infrared-heat energy with constricting wraps that help shrink fat cells. Islands Tanning MedSpa also offers memberships.
