Except for the stream of bronzed bodies emerging from its doors, Tahiti Sun Tanning could be confused with a traditional day spa. A hallway of private treatment rooms suggests the seclusion typically associated with facials and massages, because staff members believe tanning deserves this same luxurious feel. Clients bronze in ultra-ruva or high-pressure beds from brands such as Wolff and Ergoline as stereos keep ears entertained. In another room, customers can get custom spray tanning with Norvell spray-tanning treatments. On their way out, clients can buy tan-enhancing lotions and creams from the boutique to prolong their skin’s golden hue.

Light is one of the universe's most powerful forces. It can prompt plants to start photosynthesis, charge solar calculators, and instantly vaporize 75% of the world's ghosts. Expressions Tanning stretches light's abilities even further with an array of services to beautify skin and beyond. Smart Tan certified technicians recommend different intensities of tanning beds that beam light at six different levels, which gradually build golden tans over multiple visits. In other rooms, a BeamingWhite system redirects light towards the teeth, whitening them during quick, 15-minute sessions. They might also point visitors in the direction of UV-free spray tanning booths which lavish skin with a faux golden glow.
