Having begun as a single tanning shop in Greenville during the autumn of 1990, Ultratan has since blossomed into more than 70 locations throughout the Carolinas and Georgia due to its popularity and commitment to quality service. Over the years, the collection of spas has accumulated numerous awards such as Best Tanning Salon from the Daily Gamecock for providing the best equipment in both tanning beds and spray-tan technology. As a member of the International Smart Tan Network, its commitment to safe tans also encompasses a passion for keeping their customers educated about responsible tanning routines and never tanning without a helmet.

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.
