Royal Tan And Spa's staff bronzes bodies with modern tanning beds and services and offer a variety of spa services such as body wraps, massages, and facials. A series of Royal Gold sessions gently browns customers with 40 souped-up, full-body lamps. The futuristic bed of lights keeps clients cool with adjustable fans while evenly bronzing faces with four high-pressure facial-tanning lanterns and offering up to five gradients of an overall golden glow. Patrons may also choose Mystic Tan sessions held in a private room with the automated Mist Applicator, which evenly and gently gilds skin without exposing it to harmful UV rays. Mystic Tanning is available in three levels, so customers have the choice of looking as though they just returned from the beaches of the Bahamas or the sand dunes of Mars. The technicians can even apply custom airbrush tans at the spa or at clients' homes for a sunless solution that lasts up to 10 days.
