At HUSH Heated Airbrush Tanning, certified airbrush technicians wield Evolv. heat-infused airbrush systems to bronze skin with customizable, rich color. Evolv., from the same tanning company that produced Mystic Tan and VersaSpa, uses a formula enriched with argan, grape-seed, and tea-tree oils, as well as a heated applicator, to bestow a solution that can endure the water pressure from a shower four hours after treatment. The tanning spa also has color accelerators and pre-conditioners on hand, as well as scents such as coconut lime or desert bloom for olfactory stimulation.
Titan Tan helps clients achieve the bronze glow of a Greek god with several different beds and booths. The modern studio not only offers traditional UV tanning, but also doles out spray tans courtesy of VersaSpa. This standup booth is computer automated, which allows guests to practice talking in binary while they get a quick custom tan. More than just a tanning salon, Titan Tan also offers various facials, body wraps, and waxing treatments.
Though Sun on the Run staffers house an impressive array of cutting-edge tanning equipment—including six levels of tanning beds, Mystic HD sunless-tanning booths, and infrared Fit body wraps—it is their attention to detail that sets them apart. The Smart Tan–certified experts stock each private tanning room with complimentary goggles, baby wipes, and deodorant while packing salon shelves to the brim with teeth-whitening products and a variety of lotions and bronzers. The friendly technicians stand by to share their tanning expertise with customers, chatting with guests about how to care for their skin or build DIY tanning beds using nothing but cardboard boxes and smoldering leaves.
In 2001, the first iTAN Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal—to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 30 Southern California franchises, each offering a slightly different assortment of teeth whitening, tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and self-serve spa offerings.
The Smart Tan–certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays, and self-administered spa treatments dispense relaxing red-light facials, infrared-heat bodywraps, and aqua massages.
At Hollywood Tans, epidermises are enlivened with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. In application, Tanetics employs the expertise of an in-house skin specialist, who considers each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping to craft an ideal spectrum-shifting regimen. Five 10-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ vertical Hybrid booth leave the pelt polished with a 360-degree base tan that's preferable for afternoons at the beach or scandalous nights at the laundromat. Those interested in a UV-free tegument transformation can also opt for five glow-level to medium-level Mystic spray tans ($19–$25) that de-pale pasty pigment with misty coats of bronze that can last five–seven days. Grab today’s Groupon to restore your skin’s vibrancy and enjoy the added satisfaction of doing your part to put the sun out of business.
Though wrapping something is usually supposed to keep it contained, the treatments at Segue Body Wraps are meant to force toxins and water weight out. Since 2005, the center’s technicians have accomplished this effect by bandaging clients' midsection, thighs, and sometimes the face with a mineral infused tightening booster. Once fully wrapped, clients are placed in an infrared heat blanket, which causes water reduction through sweating and calorie burn. This helps reduce cellulite and stretch marks while detoxifying the body. Segue Body Wraps also offers a number of other services, including facials, waxing, and custom make-up. The relaxing facial cleanses and exfoliates the skin before a hydration mask is applied, followed by toner and moisturizing sunscreen.
