At X-Treme Tanning's two locations, cutting-edge tanning booths darken skintone. During a 12-minute session in the Silver Bullet, high-powered air conditioning sweeps over the body, dampening the heat that brims from facial and shoulder lamps. Available at the Thornwood location, the I Bed takes tanning to a new level: In addition to air conditioning and facial lamps, the lay-down bed effuses aromatic scents and links with iPods. Among stand-up booths, the Super Sonic ranks as the most powerful option—it has a 7-minute max and an upgraded sound system, which means that tanners can add a new level of color after listening to Bohemian Rhapsody just 1.183 times.
Nestled inside an intimate boutique, Zuma Beach Tanning & Spa’s Matrix tanning beds grant deep, even tans to each client who steps inside them. Each futuristic bed is outfitted with high-powered bulbs that darken the skin while fortifying the body with Vitamin D. A UV-free spray-tanning session also gives bodies a natural-looking glow akin to that acquired by lounging on the beach or on the tip of the sun’s nose. Zuma's services also firm up skin through nourishing facials and tone bodies with It Works! Skinny Wraps.
As a believer in natural healing, Bridget, the licensed aesthetician behind Grow & Glow Studio, is careful about which products her business uses. She gravitates toward simple formulas containing organic ingredients, such as Starflower Essentials, Eminence, and Acure Organics. These are the types of products you can expect her to use should you schedule one of her services, which range from a face-lift facial to a full-body detox wrap.
