The staff at L.A. Massage and Spa understands the role privacy plays in crafting a serene escape. That's why aestheticians personally escort each guest from private lounges to pristine treatment stations, taking care to avoid other guests so that each client feels like they have the entire spa to themselves or like they're living the most relaxing episode of The Twilight Zone.
Guests shuffle through the 3,000-square-foot facility in robes and slippers to enjoy cosmetic treatments that foster wellness from the outside in. Laser hair removal and waxing services subdue unwanted stubble all over the body, and refreshing facials are customized to treat a number of skincare concerns, from combating acne to diminishing fine lines.
Further head-to-toe pampering encompasses detoxifying mud wraps and soothing massages tailored for the specific needs of pregnant women, athletes, and over-squeezed stress balls. Guests can follow up their treatment with an invigorating aromatherapy steam shower infused with a choice from 20 soothing scents.
Seven levels of UV beds populate the private tanning rooms of Unlimited Tan?s numerous Chicagoland locations and join forces with automated spray-tanning booths to forge a war against wintry pallor. Tanning equipment tiers build upon basic level lamps to include extras such as high-pressure bulbs, aromatherapy, and cooling mists designed to keep clients comfortable and make it easier to maintain their hue over time. For the UV averse, spray-tanning booths send automated jets of pigment misting over bodies in 60 seconds, with the full, streak-free results gradually developing across 24 hours, like a whirlwind romance between sloths. Each of the salons also stocks a full supply of lotions from brands such as Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Swedish Beauty, which works to protect skin and enhance the life of any tan.
The dangers of UV tanning cease to exist at Spray of Sunshine. At locations in the city and suburbs, trained tanning technicians sheath skin in a streak-free, sun-kissed glow, without assistance from the sun itself. Clients can choose the popular Mystic HD spray tan or opt for one of Spray of Sunshine?s custom airbrush treatments. Although Spray of Sunshine has three locations, it also offers mobile tanning for individuals and for parties of up to 16 people or bowling trophies.
The professionally trained staff members at Color Me Bronze specialize in color. Whether they’re guiding clients through six levels of tanning beds or airbrushing Fake Bake’s streak-free formula onto skin, they help foster a sun-kissed glow. In addition to deepening hues, the staff supplies clients with a light-activated whitening gel that simultaneously brightens teeth during UV-tanning sessions. Additionally, other products are available to help enhance tans post treatment.
