Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
The official day spa and salon of the 2011 American Music Awards, J. Nicole's Day Spa and Salon calls upon its stylists' hair expertise and its technicians' skin savvy to pamper clients within a rock 'n' roll–themed lounge. The staffers, who can sometimes be seen jamming on the guitars that adorn the salon's scarlet walls, beautify heads with hair services and eyelash extensions or relax bodies with treatments such as massages and craniosacral therapy. Aestheticians also exfoliate faces with Obagi chemical peels and abrasive punk-rock drum solos.
The staff at Allvera Body Wrap & Wellness Center's Dublin location, soon opening a location in Grandview, is dedicated to balancing body and mind.

The center also pampers clients with its use of high-end products including BareMinerals and HydroPeptides skin care lines.

At the vanguard of skin-saving technology, the SilkPeel stimulates damaged epidermises to produce healthful collagen and deliver therapeutic ingredients, such as vitamins and antioxidants, to torpid skin cells. A particle-free and personalized microdermabrasion, the SilkPeel eschews one-size-fits-all dermatology in favor of treatments tailored to each client's skin condition. Veteran aesthetician Tiffany Shoup, who has 10 years of experience, uses a specialized hand piece and serum to navigate face maps while improving acne-prone skin, moisturizing dry patches, and brightening dull complexions.
