With its black walls, chrome décor, and streamlined furniture, Platinum Tanning’s ultramodern waiting room reflects a commitment to staying on the cutting edge of UV and sunless-tanning technology. This theme continues in the salon’s private rooms, which host standup and lie-down UV tanning beds—including the Montego Bay V56, the AutoBronzer, the S-Class, the P-90 Combo, and the advanced Alpha 6800—that infuse skin with a bright, sun-kissed glow or a deep bronze.
To keep skin looking the golden hue of King Midas’s morning toast, Platinum Tanning stocks its shelves with moisturizing and color-boosting products from top brands such as Swedish Beauty, Australian Gold, and Devoted Creations. UV-free California Tan spray tanning imbues skin with one of three shades that can last up to seven days. To determine which tanning regimen is right for you, talk to the salon’s staff during a free consultation that accounts for your skin type and goals.
The aesthetician at Sedora Spa unites her knowledge of natural ingredients with modern technology to help compensate for the shortcomings of plant-based skin products and radios made from coconuts. Ultrasonic massage devices shimmy across the skin with 28,000 vibrations per second to help break down blackheads, dirt, and grease while boosting circulation. Elecro facials firm up drooping skin by gently stimulating the muscles of the face and dive under the skin to kill the bacteria that causes break-outs. This technology works alongside skillful blends of Dead Sea mineral masks and natural butters and oils.
The team at Sedora Spa devotes itself to clients’ comfort. Cookies, snacks, and tea in the reception area greet incoming guests. In the candlelit treatment areas, clients can pick between vanilla and lavender aromatherapy or simply enjoy the cherry-almond scent of everyday oxygen.

Wielding the FDA-approved beams of a Candela GentleLASE laser, which was featured on The Dr. Oz Show, medically-trained specialists safely eradicate errant strands from men, women, and soon-to-be inconspicuous Sasquatches. Within a private room of Dr. Marlene Galizi’s offices, a consultation draws professional attention to the undesirable tufts sprouting in applicable areas, such as swimsuit bikini (a $600 value), underarms (a $525 value), upper shoulders (a $525 value), back of the neck (a $525 value), side burns (a $375 value), upper lip (a $225 value), or chin (a $300 value). Fears of discomfort akin to legendary medieval tickle torture vanish as the GentleLASE’s specialized coolant spray system soothes away the smarting for all three zapping session. Though this Groupon only covers three sessions, multiple sessions are recommended for maximum bristle-banishing results.
If humans were shaped like perfect rectangles, tanning would be easy. But since human bodies consist of various curves and nooks, the team at Tropical Lights Tanning Salon has acquired ergonomic tanning beds with built-in facial bulbs. Custom airbrush tans also adapt to body shapes, with expert technicians bronzing clients evenly and naturally.
