Similar to sunbathing, indoor tanning can be hazardous when done irresponsibly. That's why Club 1 Tanning, a member of the Indoor Tanning Association and International Smart Tan Network, enlists knowledgeable staffers to carefully oversee customers’ use of its state-of-the-art tanning beds. Along with four levels of UV-tanning bed, the salon features the VersaSpa spray-tan system, which produces sun-kissed glows without using ultraviolet rays or leaving skin marked by embarrassing orange hues.
With its standup booths, advanced spray-tanning equipment, and four levels of tanning beds, Sun Studio Tan brings the beach indoors—minus the sand and salty water, of course. The studio’s basic beds cultivate golden base tans in approximately 10 sessions; high-pressure Level 4 beds, on the other hand, get the job done so fast that there is hardly time to enjoy a few songs on the CD/MP3 stereo sound systems hooked up inside. Sun Studio Tan's bronzing emporium also hosts VersaSpa spray-tan booths for quick, UV-free tanning. The innovative system tans and hydrates skin in 60 seconds, or roughly the same amount of time it takes to jump in and out of a scalding-hot deep fryer.
The staff at Tan Factory bronzes their clients’ birthday suits with UV-free airbrush tanning for the entire body, enlisting the manmade sunshine found in California Tan products. During the 20-minute sessions, tanning technicians slather hides in sun-kissed hues that can last from 7–10 days or until clients tumble into a vat of Liquid Paper. Tan Factory continuously seeks out current technology and supplements its spray applications with lotions from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty. Tanning mavens recommend exfoliating beforehand and wearing loose clothing to the sessions, and recommends that customers avoid any moisturizers, fragrances, and laser-light shows on the day of the treatments.
Drawing from an arsenal stocked with four levels of organic and PETA-approved vegan sunless-tanning products, trained technicians at Studio Bronze assess each client’s skin type to determine which tanning solution best emphasizes their natural tone. They’ll then shift skin spectrums during custom spray tan sessions, ensuring each client receives an individualized tan free from dangerous UV rays or harmful ingredients. In addition to keeping things 100% natural, they bolster sessions with complimentary additives such as opalescent shimmer drops, which yield a healthy looking glow, and anti-aging solutions, which help tighten the skin’s elasticity and ward off loitering vultures. Studio Bronze can even take visits a step further by complementing sleek new tans with a haircut and color service, a facial waxing session, or an installation of human Remy hair extensions.
The talented team at Vanity Flair soothes and brightens sensitive skin with the chemical-free organic passion-fruit peel. Expert hands slather faces with the fruity potion to gently exfoliate skin, diminishing dullness and evening pigmentation without the use of harsh chemicals or biting liquid sass. Afterward, clients can observe the smoothness and softness of their newly freshened faces in the shiny leather of the waiting room’s sleek couches by burrowing their heads in between the cushions.
Bodyheat Tanning, with 23 locations spanning Nevada, gilds bodies with the help of tanning beds in five levels, sunless spray tanning, and custom airbrush tans. Patrons can recline in a Level 1 bed to build a base tan or stand up in a Level 3 bed to deepen their color. VersaSpa systems automatically mist bronze color onto skin in 60 seconds. No matter what kind of tans clients are looking for, tanning experts analyze skin types and goals to help them choose the lotions, equipment, and perfect crayon shades to fit their needs.
For tan-free options, infrared body wraps melt inches, and Hydration Stations combine radiant heat, steam, and vibrations to turn tight muscles into butter. Red-light beds from iRenew eschew tanning in favor of reducing acne and fine lines. Additionally, the salons dispense myriad tanning lotions, lip glosses, and house-paint swatches for easy skin-tone matching.
