Tanning inevitably involves standing or lying still for an extended period of time. At 4 Seasons Tanning Salon, a licensed aesthetician and a team of expert body-bronzers take the boredom out of the tanning process with thoroughly engaging visits and modern technology. After individual consultations, staffers take guests on a tour of the premises, showing clients the many tanning machines and aftercare products that can help achieve their desired results. The salon’s UV beds each house a stereo system and input for iPods, so tanners can listen to their favorite music or sleep-inducing college lectures. The beds run the gamut from the eco-conscious Ultimate Envy 234 to the Velocity HP1000, whose open design allows for full-body coverage and cooling. For speedier sessions, the VersaSpa sunless-tanning booth sprays bodies with moisturizer and bronzing solution in approximately one-minute sessions.
Raised in an Air Force family that was constantly on the move, aesthetician Patricia Conway knows the value of feeling at home. She began Southern Charm Spa to leverage her passion for hospitality and her fascination with the skin—especially the way it glows after a facial, heals beneath LED lights, and lifts in response to gentle microcurrents. Patricia goes the extra mile by padding her array of facial and waxing services with extras such as prefacial pumpkin enzymes, prewax numbing creams, and skin analyses to customize skincare and carbon date lipstick stains. To educate others about her passion, Patricia's website includes an extensive FAQ section that covers the purpose, method, and after-care instructions for every service she provides.
Despite the breaking of clocks and the plotting of super villains, the world continues to turn, days and then years pass, and skin gathers wrinkles and begins to sag. At Lynn Klein Massage & Skincare, skilled aesthetician Janet (Lynn) Klein fights these signs of aging with cutting-edge facials that incorporate galvanic currents, Nu Skin products, and microdermabrasion, aiming to firm up slack skin and banish wrinkles left from frowning at disappointingly slow-growing house plants. Klein also draws on her 19 years of experience in the massage and skincare industry while incorporating massage techniques to soothe away stress. The spa also evicts excess wax and hidden telegraph messages from ears with candling.
At a tanning salon named Best of Omaha 2010 by Omaha Magazine, trained tan technicians help clients achieve their ideal hue with a range of tanning techniques. To begin the bronzing journey, staff members discuss each visitor's tanning goals and determine the best method from their service arsenal, such as UV-bed tanning, spray tanning, or wrestling the salon's pet dwarf star. Five models of UV beds imbue skin with deep, long-lasting tans at variable levels tailored to your natural coloring. For UV-free hues, airbrush technicians arm themselves with custom shades before gilding silhouettes with hand-guided sweeps of tanning solution.
Aesthetician Tara Hinson doesn?t just coddle soles with hot towels and a foot mask during pedicures?she invites her clients to lie down on a bed and enjoy a hot face towel as she tends to their toenails, a twist that inspired her to name this relaxing treatment the Lazy Pedi. Tara?s array of facials reflects her certification as a skincare professional, incorporating lactic acid, exfoliation, and extractions to rejuvenate skin and battle blemishes. Her dermal expertise also comes into play as she waxes away unwanted mustaches and the hair that collects on legs during one?s daily wading through kittens.
Ashley Lynn’s Massage offers a range of salon, tanning, and massage treatments to make clients feel relaxed and beautiful.

The salon also keeps a full line of tanning equipment onsite, with four levels of UV beds and automated VersaSpa spray-tanning booths that ensure clients attain the desired shade of bronze without having to get in a Jacuzzi tub with a sack full of pennies.
