Sunnyside Tanning Spa's Smart Tan–certified technicians adjust the tint on anatomical control panels with variable-intensity UV-tanning beds and hand-applied spray tans. Airbrush artists darken human hides with Norvell solutions composed of bronzers including cosmetic, DHA, and erythrulose, the combination of which ensures evenness and eliminates spotting and streaking. Sunnyside's arsenal of UV-tanning beds includes in its ranks the Ergoline Classic 600, which boasts high-pressure facial lamps and shoulder bronzers. The stand-up hex unit showers bodies in 360 degrees of UV coverage and simulates the effects of walking on sunshine. Late-night hours offer convenient tanning for business people, students, and beach bums sneaking around behind the Sun's back. Sunnyside's updated arsenal also features the Fuquay location's Beauty Angel red-light-therapy booth, which rains green light's stern roommate onto hides to stimulate collagen production, battle cellulite with a vibrating platform, and firm the skin by promoting absorption of cosmetics.
The customers pouring out of Sunnyside Tanning Spa might be boasting a brand new patina, but their sunny disposition isn't just a product of the salon's three levels of UV beds. It also stems from the fact that owners Gena and Neal have tried hard to make their tanning spa a place where customers come to hang out, whether it means staying longer to chat with the friendly staff or perusing a boutique area stocked with trendy clothes, jewelry, and handbags. The comforts even extend into the tanning room, where UV beds come equipped with amenities such as personal air conditioning systems, high-pressure facial lamps, and even vibrating bases that may help to firm skin and muscles or jiggle loose change from behind the ears. The salon's knowledgeable staff is also on hand to help the sun-shy by applying a Norvell Sunless airbrush tanning solution, which uses a trio of bronzers to deliver a shade customized to the client's skin tone.
Sometimes it takes a rude awakening for people to change their habits. For BeYoutifully Bronzed’s owner, it took her mother’s diagnosis of skin cancer to quit using tanning booths. Even with the scare, the habitual beach-goer and pool lounger at first found herself still under the dangerous rays of the sun, attempting to darken her still-healthy skin. The story is a familiar one. Though skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the United States, many Americans still tan due to a desire to have that sun-kissed glow.
Luckily, BeYoutifully Bronzed found a solution. The business, which is located within The Skin Institute, helps clients to stay bronzed year-round with UV-free airbrush tanning performed in-store or brought to the home to prep cheerleaders for competition or prevent brides from blending in with their dresses.
The Smart Tan–certified staff at The Islands Tanning and Beach Shop helps to aesthetically burnish bodies with unlimited tanning packages and a Mystic Tan sunless spray-tanning booth. Customers can slip into a Level 1 bed at any point over 30 days to both acquire and touch up a newly polished shell, and may speak to the specialists on hand if they wish to upgrade to a Level 2 or 3 for an additional fee. Alternately, the private, fully automated Mymist sunless spray-tanning booth takes about one minute to coat physiques in an all-over bronze glow. The resulting tan can keep figures looking sun-touched for up to seven days, ensuring that the newly-tanned can flaunt their sheen at upcoming weddings, soirees, holiday partys, and Senate hearings.
