Since opening in the early 1990s with just four stores, L.A. Tan has expanded into a national brand that counts more than 180 locations in six states. Members can tan at any location they wish, selecting from services that range from at least five levels of high-end UV beds to spray-tan booths from top brands such as Mystic Tan and VersaSpa. Anyone unsure of how to navigate all the options can seek advice from one of L.A. Tan's certified tanning professionals, who know each tanning bed on a first-name basis. They also give consultations, build custom packages based on individual skin type, and offer take-home products that help tans last longer. Dependent on the location, spray tanning systems will vary; call desired location for further details.
The Skin Spa's brigade of aestheticians, therapists, technicians, and doctors defend dermises with products and services that cater to each client's specific need. Before each service, one of the spa's expert aestheticians assesses the client's skin and discusses habits, needs, and desires to determine which skin products to use and create a customized treatment. Refurbish your cranial façade with The SKIN facial, a 60- to 75-minute process that includes a cleansing, steam, and two to three different kinds of exfoliation to slough away lifeless cells and old scratch-'n'-sniff stickers. An extraction evacuates squatting blackheads from pores, and a massage loosens muscles strained from trying out facial expressions for innovative new emotions. The treatment also includes a mask, giving faces a bit of privacy before they begin attracting stares from enchanted onlookers. Although today's deal doesn't cover any of The Skin Spa's oncology-related products or services, the spa prides itself on its certification through The Skincare Therapy Center's training for oncology aesthetics.

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.
