Amazing Tans, celebrating its 18-year anniversary, furnishes its interiors with a range of cutting-edge tanning beds and booths. The studio's Matrix, Sun Board, and Velocity beds filter out 98% of UVB rays—the rays responsible for reddening skin. Aside from tanning beds, Magic Tan and Mystic Tan standup tanning booths mist bodies in UV-free sunless tanning formulas, transforming pasty hues into even, natural-looking bronze tones. Tanning and skincare products are available for purchase, including Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Amazing Face bronzers and moisturizers.
Behind each door in R U Tan's spa-like facilities lie state-of-the-art tanning beds that vary in strength and style. The tanning center's certified consultants can help bronze enthusiasts select the best bed for their skin type or help assemble a tanning plan that combines sessions in the standup bed, the plush Extreme bed, or the Hydration Station bed that resembles Woody Allen's time-traveling vessel in Sleeper. Experienced spray-tanning techs provide an alternative to UV-ray bathing by instantaneously coating the skin in an even, natural-looking tone.
With dozens of locations sprinkled around the sunshine state, California Sun makes it easy for tanners to bronze without fear of sunburn. As sunless bathers daydream within two levels of Ergoline beds, melanin rises to the skin's surface at the beck and call of a high-pressure cooling system or adjustable face tanners, leaving bodies with a golden glow in just 10–12 minutes. For those who prefer the misty kiss of a sunless spray tan, formulas by VersaSpa, Mystic Tan, or Norvell grace guests with new shades that can last from four to seven days and won't leave skin looking unnaturally orange or supernaturally blue.
Elicia Riggi has walked a mile in the shoes of her clients. The experienced skin therapist found her passion when she found professional relief from her own skin problems. At Elicia Riggi Esthetics, inside Cut Loose Salon, she helps clients overcome their skin issues with customized facials and waxing services. She uses face mapping to help her determine the correct treatment plan, just as a mountaineer uses face mapping to determine which part of a mountain face is the nose and how many gallons of skin lotion to rub on it. The skincare expert has partnered with Dermologica and uses pure, PH-balanced water in all of her treatments. Riggi is also a certified massage therapist and uses this skill to knead away tension with Swedish massage therapy or simply to add a relaxing supplement to facials.
East2West Massage's certified massage therapists practice techniques that earned the business the title of Best Massage from CityVoter in 2010. During 60-minute massages, professionals practice modalities such as Swedish, Hawaiian lomi lomi, or deep tissue. Couples massages bring together dynamic duos such as friends, partners, or rival professional wrestlers for side-by-side muscle molding. Soothing music augments private, candlelit relaxation sanctuaries where clients receive treatments.
Exactly 21 things matter to the technicians at Royal Nails Carmichael: 10 toes, 10 fingers, and the client they belong to. The salon's service menu focuses on skin and nails, with treatments that include hot-oil manicures and deluxe pedicures. To thank your nails for helping out with that scratch-off lotto ticket or territorial bear, opt for a specialty application of gel polish, acrylics, or white tips.
