At Tan Factory, patrons slip from standup Saturn tanning beds or lie-down units, their skin warm and bronzed. The UVA-based high-pressure beds leave bodies with golden hues, and red-light-therapy beds hum as they generously spread a glow to stimulate collagen-producing fibroblasts during 15-minute sessions. As the light penetrates epidermal layers, it activates the body?s natural processes to reduce the appearance of fine lines, blemishes, and scars, restoring youthful sleekness and an ability to make convincing shadow puppets of dolphins. Those seeking to augment skin with sunless color step into a Mystic Tan or VersaSpa Spray booth and emerge 60 seconds later with fully toasted coats that last up to eight days.
At Tangible Tanning Salon, clients perform their own Superman-like transformations as they step inside a UV or spray-tan booth and emerge freshly glowing. The tanning salon hosts three levels of tanning in beds and booths that allow clients to tan standing up, lying down, or balancing on their heads. The Smart Tan–certified staff can help guests to choose the right equipment and tanning time with a skin-type analysis and pampering lotions from Designer Skin.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from guided meditation to spray tanning. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Advanced spa services such as hydro-derma fusion and luminous facials provide opportunities for moisturizing and photoskinthesis.
EuniQue Tanning Salon & Spa embraces energy-harnessing technologies for both tanning and rejuvenating clients' skin. Their UV tanning beds not only coat clients in varying levels of ray intensity, but also provide opportunities to tan lying down, standing up, or lounging in an open-air pod. Lumiere LED devices saturate skin with red-light wavelengths that help counteract the signs of photo aging, while radiant heat capsules treat bodies to low-level waves of the same energy the Earth absorbs from the sun to strengthen the body's natural processes and harden clay sculptures clutched within fists. The salon and spa also houses automatic spray-tanning machines that use electric energy to power sprayers inside a private booth, and Whiter Image teeth-whitening systems, which brighten smiles with LED lights.
More than 30 years ago, Maryann Matykowski was styling hair professionally. Today, she still primps locks, but with the added benefit of having seen thousands of clients. In the interim, she added the title of licensed cosmetologist and certified lash technician to her resumé. As the owner of Destiny Hair Designs, she uses all the arrows in her quiver of skills to oversee a diverse salon menu. With Redken products, Maryann can render partial or full highlights or full color treatments. She can also augment eyelashes with extensions ranging from 45 to 75 per eye, one for each time a person blinks per minute when a butterfly lives on his nose.
