With more than 140 salons nationwide, Hollywood Tans has left its richly toned mark on bodies from coast to coast. Four varieties of vertical HT-manufactured booths welcome clients to bask in their UV glow and walk out 10 minutes later looking like a bronze statue of themselves. Instant Tan spray systems powered by Mystic Tan yield an even, natural tan in the shade of the client's choice that lasts up to seven days.
The staffers at Solar Planet do more than lavish visitors with meticulously clean salons, indulgent extras, and the power to don a sun-kissed glow in less than 20 minutes. Each employee is Smart Tan certified, meaning they possess the training to design personalized tanning schedules for clients seeking an instant or lasting glow. The specialists also know every detail of Solar Planet’s fleet of tanning beds, which range from traditional beds to standup capsules, the style most conducive to tanning lawn flamingos. At some locations, custom airbrush tanning sessions enlist the help of a certified airbrush artist who highlights the body’s features with strategic strokes in a custom bronzing hue. Over its 25 years in business, Solar Planet also has sunless tanning booths, a stock of buyable bronzing lotions, and a variety of skincare services including facials and waxing.
At Image Sun Tanning Centers, tanning beds and custom airbrush tans give skin a golden glow. To keep skins healthy and tans rich, Image Sun stocks its shelves with skincare products as well. Products include Designer Skin and Australian Gold skincare and bronzing products that prolong deep tans.

Smooth Exposure's medical microdermabrasion services help clients smooth fine lines and wrinkles while treating blackheads and signs of aging. An applicator sweeps across the skin to clear away the top layer of cells and fade surface imperfections to reveal younger skin. The procedure brightens skin's tone and evens its texture.
The same advanced technology contributes to much of Smooth Exposure's menu. From laser hair-removal sessions to treatments for sun damage, age spots, and acne, their offerings take advantage of IPL tools to leave the skin silky and refreshed. The staff also administers facials, chemical peels, spray tans, and specialized injections, which include energy-lifting B12 shots and dermal fillers such as Botox and Restylane.
