You might think that standing up while you tan would cause an unnaturally darkened scalp, but this never happens at Hollywood Tans. That's because their arsenal of signature stand-up tanning booths create an always even, natural-looking glow in as little as seven minutes. With more than 140 locations nationwide, the chain’s salons—each a veritable bronze mine for pale bodies—can also bronze physiques Mystic Tan’s Instant Tan, a sunless formula that does not contain UV-rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. Voted "Favorite Tanning Salon in North Jersey" by an independent readers' poll in Suburban Trends magazine, Hollywood Tans of Riverdale can also help customers choose the Instant Tan formula best suited to them, matching the bronzing serums to the each person's skin tone, type, and ideal look.
Before founding Dr. Park Avenue, Dr. Paul Fondacaro dedicated years of study and practice to understanding surgery and medicine. He earned his MD at NYU, served as chief resident at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, and eventually became the attending surgeon at Long Island College Hospital. After taking an interest in the booming aesthetic field, he opened the first location of Dr. Park Avenue, an office that specializes in minimally invasive aesthetic procedures and noninvasive laser services. Business grew rapidly, leading him to hire a staff of certified technicians and eventually expand to three locations.
His diverse treatment menu aims to help clients look and feel stunning. Body-contouring and weight-loss services encourage healthy and svelte figures, and chemical peels, injections, and facials battle signs of aging. The office keeps IPL technology on hand to zap unwanted body hair, erase spider veins, or highlight important details in PowerPoint lectures.
The technicians at Sano Ageless Skin Care & Wellness Center specialize in anti-aging services, infusing skin with vitamins to banish wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. During the signature antioxidant treatment, technicians refresh facescapes, purifying them with an ozone steam treatment before sloughing off dead skin cells and ingrown feathers. Pores then get their daily dose of vitamins with a vitamin C–enriched quartz mask. The treatment commences with a layer of advanced skin-hydration complex to infuse skin with moisture and an eye treatment to remove pesky crow footprints.
Therapy Nails & Spa treats its guests to a litany of luxurious spa treatments. Massage therapists promote deep relaxation with reflexology sessions, and aestheticians curb uni-brows with precise eyebrow waxing. Nail specialists, meanwhile, pamper finger and toe tips with expert mani-pedis that might end with a fresh coat of traditional polish, French color gel, or a tiny slice of cucumber applied to each digit.
Regardless of the weather outside, it’s always summer inside Luxe Tans’ modern salon. After mocha-hued walls greet visitors in the reception area, a series of coppery, sunbaked tiles leads to the salon’s collection of powerful UV tanning beds; these decorative hues serve as a preview of what one’s skin may look like after just a few tanning sessions. Though a wide selection of lotions moisturize and protect skin from drying out under UV rays, clients can forsake exposure altogether by opting for a custom airbrush tan or a soothing dip in molten gold.
