Desert Sun Tanning's FormoStar body wraps radiate infrared heat onto the limbs and torso in order to boost metabolism and accelerate the burning of fat. During the 50-minute treatment, clients can adjust the body wrap's temperature to suit their levels of heat tolerance and pyromania. The heat from the wrap helps alleviate muscle pain, promotes calorie burning without muscle or lung fatigue, and stimulates the lymphatic system. The sweating that the treatment induces in users is also thought to exfoliate away dead skin cells.

The Beauty Lab's menu of facials, PCA skin treatments, and hair-removal services actually acts as more of a jumping-off point than a rigid list. That's because all these treatments—not just the custom ones—use products tailored to the client's skin and personal preferences.
Facials rely on specialized masks and serums to fight signs of aging, combat acne, or keep the skin looking as dewy as a blade of grass in a plants pin-up calendar. Different PCA peel ingredients can be blended together and enhanced with a collagen-boosting retinol if the client needs it. And because many people have sensitive skin or simply distrust soft wax, The Beauty Lab offers two more hair-removal agents in addition to traditional soft wax—hard wax and a sugar paste mixed by an onsite aesthetician.
Contrary to popular belief and science, healthy human nails aren't supposed to grow; they should remain static, glossy, and the color of your choice. But most of us contracted a disease from playground equipment that makes our nails grow at alarming rates, lose their luster, cease to be our favorite color, and become unattractively translucent.
Each of Seattle Sun Tan's 39 locations spans between 2,000 and 4,000 square feet of space dedicated solely to the art of un-sunbathing. Washington-state tanners strut down immaculate hallways dotted with framed original paintings and contemporary artwork before settling into private rooms where they may acquire their desired shade while enjoying the sounds of their own music or prerecorded subliminal messages piped in through the iPod dock perched near each bed. The Smart Tan–certified staff guides clients in selecting which of the five levels of UV bed best fits their tanning needs and whether they desire a short tan time, prefer to stand up or lie down, or wish to bask beneath high-pressure face lamps. Shop shelves offer home tanners quality products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, whereas spray-tanning options from VersaSpa and SunFX both impart a natural-looking faux glow that takes mere minutes to apply and lasts for days.
