Although Starlight Tanning Salon's fleet of tanning beds includes such top equipment as Matrix beds imported from Italy and high-pressure standup units, it would be a mistake to assume its sole focus is UV tanning, since the salon's lead trainer is actually an airbrush-tanning specialist. In fact, even the beds aren't only for tanning, since the salon also carries a skin-rejuvenation model used solely to promote the production of collagen and elastin, not pigment. Clients can also opt to whiten their teeth or duck into the oxygen bar, where a generator produces ambient air to increase oxygen intake to 95 percent and help improve the body's alertness and function. While there, patrons can simultaneously enjoy tanning services and sips from empty glasses.
