Under the watchful eye of medical director Dr. Annika Crosby, the trained staff of PSS MedSpa come to the aid of clients with ailing complexions, aging skin, and unwanted hair or varicose veins with a combination of laser and aesthetic treatments. The team draws upon an arsenal of lasers that can be finely tuned to gently treat the delicate lines surrounding eyes or powerful rays that stop hair production in the follicles. The spa also utilizes high-quality products from brands such as SkinCeuticals, Eminence, and Colorescience Pro, blending the latest skin science with all-natural ingredients to keep skin soft, complexions clear, and signs of aging at bay. The staff can also outfit newly refined faces with a selection of retail mineral makeup and waxing treatments that create skin as flawless as the skin skeletons dream about.
Because the existence of so many types of tanning equipment can sometimes make tanning intimidating, Perfect Tan’s staffers are always on hand to help clients establish a tanning regimen based on their skin type and tanning goals. By asking a few simple questions, the staff can help clients choose from three levels of tanning beds and a UV-free, sunless Mystic spray-tan booth that leaves bodies evenly bronzed in about 20 minutes. Their tan plan determined, clients recline in lie-down beds from Ovation, Encore, Solart, and Bravo, or they stand in a 2M standup tanning booth so they can keep balancing stacks of dinner plates on their heads.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. A dedicated full-time cleaning staff regularly runs through a 50-point inspection process between sessions, helping to create a sanitary tanning experience and keep clients from warming up 6-foot-long paninis during appointments.
