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.
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.
Nationally certified tanning artist Nina Brown gives skin a natural-looking glow using organic, FDA-approved tanning potions. She learned to wield these hypoallergenic, paraben-free solutions under the tutelage of an airbrush artist who perfected her craft on the skin and patent-leather handbags of the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Brown applies these professional techniques while bronzing clients in her studio or on location.
Owner and proprietor Christina founded Designer Shades in 2009 as a response to the overpriced, unnatural-looking spray tans she was used to getting from competitors. To improve on these lesser-quality tans, she partnered with Norvell and South Seas Skincare, whose shades regularly coat the distinguished pelts of Kim Kardashian, Carrie Underwood, and many Dancing with the Stars celebrities. Christina and her team treat each client who wanders in front of their running spray nozzles like a celebrity. They gift all hue-changing patrons with a free pH balancer and tan-extender application, which not only protects skin from drying and aging, but also works to firm skin for days at the beach or months spent in dunk tanks.
