Adhering to the motto "eat, sleep, tan," the dedicated staff at Body Heat Tanning keeps clients sun-kissed with hand-applied wisps of Norvell tanning solution and a range of traditional tanning beds. Certified Norvell technicians mist bodies with Norvell’s sunless skin darkener, which leaves skin glowing bronze rather than Oompa Loompa orange. The staff imitates the sun's natural distribution of light as they linger on parts that typically receive greater exposure and whisks past those that typically receive less. Spray tans take 20–30 minutes to apply and typically last five to seven days, gradually fading as outer skin layers slough off.
A waterfall babbles over stones and splashes plants outside. Inside the themed private rooms set the scene for massage and holistic therapies. Touch of Class Day Spa's serene decor and skilled technicians have caught the eyes of many. Even former Coral Springs mayor Scott Brook praises the place, echoing the state emperor in saying, "I love coming to Touch of Class. I love everything about the place from the moment I walk in: The fragrance is wonderful, the service is excellent."
The spa specializes in couples massage, though it also offers custom and clinical facials, body wraps and scrubs, and waxing. Duos can settle down for a side-by-side massage in the garden-themed couples room or step into the second floor's Moroccan couples room, where swaths of vivid fabric billow out from the ceiling. Indian, Hawaiian, Japanese, and Thai treatment rooms also swaddle clients in exotic patterns and ambiances.
Boca Tanning Club salons bronze clients with the help of super tanning beds and booths, as well as UV-free VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. Clients walk past the painted vines, rocks, and rainforest-themed decor before stepping into the spray-tanning booths, which gild limbs in 60 seconds, or into a super bed, which caramelizes skin in less time than a traditional bed. In private rooms, technicians wielding airbrush systems custom shade and contour muscles while de-emphasizing vestigial tails.
An airbrush artist hand sprays an organic solution that leaves skin tan for up to 10 days. Nearby, standup and lie-down tanning booths shine at five different levels, making it possible for clients of all skin types and tones to achieve the hue they desire. The activity at Casa Del Sol Tanning Spa fulfills the vision of owners Joshua and Jacki, avid tanners whose high-end equipment and lotions befit a boutique-like space complete with satin drapery and no parrots screeching lewd jokes.
