In 2001, the first iTAN Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal?to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 30 Southern California franchises, each offering a slightly different assortment of teeth whitening, tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and self-serve spa offerings.
The Smart Tan?certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays, and self-administered spa treatments dispense relaxing red-light facials, infrared-heat bodywraps, and aqua massages.
Skin Alive and its aesthetician school, Mequon Thiensville School of Esthetics, are devoted to the study and practice of skincare. Clients can choose to visit the hands-on student-learning center for aesthetic services performed by students under instructor supervision, or head to the Skin Alive spa for services performed by a licensed professional. Both offer basic beauty services, such as facials, peels, and waxing, but the licensed aestheticians at Skin Alive can also slough off dead skin cells with diamond-tip microdermabrasion, rejuvenate skin with lasers, and vanquish unwelcome hair with laser hair-removal treatments that leave skin smoother than a cue ball smothered in olive oil.

The friendly and upbeat staff at Hollywood Tans Santee specializes in helping clients achieve sun-kissed tans year-round.

In addition to traditional beds, those who want to avoid UV-rays or who are allergic to light bulbs can let one of the studio's technicians provide a personalized glow with customized airbrush spray tans.
At the age of 10, Bryan Meyer went on a trip to the Hawaiian Islands. It was on that trip that he first picked up a camera–and he hasn't put it down since. Now, more than four decades later, Bryan continues what has turned into a lifelong journey in photography. He and his Mind's Eye team shoot local conventions, sports events, and celebrations. They also snap more intimate sessions, including families with special needs.
When Vanessa became an esthetician, she started out by working at a laser center, where she discovered the healing benefits of microdermabrasion. Vanessa has applied her skincare passion to help open a specialized spa inside The MediSpa as the owner of SkinFIT by Vanessa. Though Vanessa still offers microdermabrasion, she's added facials, chemical peels, and waxing to the menu. She also highly recommends Dr. Schwab's herbal foam cleanser and Revision's Intellishade moisturizer. The latter hydrates the skin and defends against sun damage.
