Opened since 1987, Sun Your Buns is ahead of the curve when it comes to tanning technology, its benefits, and its potential risks, and it’s devoted to bringing clients up to speed. So, when first-time tanners step into Sun Your Buns, they’re not just directed to a bed and left on their own. Instead, experienced staffers dispel tips for maximizing the benefits of a UV tan—while avoiding the risks—before recommending helpful products, such as lotions by Australian Gold or Designer Skin. Once prepped and ready to go, clients can recline in one of two Klafsun beds or stand in a SunDome booth, each tucked inside a private pink or blue room. For quick fixes, the staff’s certified airbrush technician creates custom, natural-looking tans in seconds with Norvell products.
Skin cancer changes a person. Luckily for DeAnne Corley, only the discovery of precancerous cells was needed for her to divest herself of her sunbathing habits and instill in her a desire to warn others about the dangers of sun exposure. Her passion resulted in a complete diversion in her career trajectory, leaving her previous job to open a mobile and salon-based spray-tanning service that gives patrons a sultry glow without putting their health or style at risk.
Her trained tan techs now man the private treatment rooms inside Blades of Columbia Salon and deliver treatments to homes, offices, or surprise pool parties. Staffers wield a tightly controlled stream of DHA tanning solution, spending 15 to 20 minutes spraying bodily facades to ensure an even, streak-free bronzing. Once tans have set, patrons can show off summery hues that last 7 to 10 days, or opt to partake of one of the salon’s natural nail care or enhancement treatments that groom hands without enduring the tedium of sandpaper gloves.
Vista Tanning has been helping Columbia residents look fabulous year round with our luxurious, Sun Master tanning beds, and Customize Spray Tanning services. You will find our facilities clean, our staff well trained, and the atmosphere friendly and comfortable.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Open 7 days a week, UltraSkin Wax Center’s team of licensed aestheticians banishes unwanted bristles with a signature three-step waxing process and rejuvenates visages with IPL photofacials. During the Celebrity eyebrow wax, brow architects employ UltraSkin’s cleanser, unique wax blend, and soothing gel to construct accentuating eye bridges. After 5–10 minutes, brows emerge neatly trimmed, tinted, and shaped into elegant arches or extreme lightning bolts. In the 30- to 45-minute IPL photofacial, experienced and IPL-trained aesthetician Novi Perez wields intense pulsed photon beams to scare away fine lines and wrinkles. The facial leaves skin firmer and smoother than an authoritarian dolphin, with even pigmentation and a youthful glow.
