When the sky is cloudy or filled with locusts, clients duck into Electric Beach to bronze their bodies with the glowing bulbs of Dr. Mueller beds. The beds come in high-, medium-, and low-pressure models, and their strengths range from less than 1% emitted UVB rays to 5% emitted UVB rays. Alternatively, the Magic Tan booth uses 37 spray nozzles to mist the body with an even coat of color in less than a minute.
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.
Suntrenz spans two floors, both of which are dedicated to making clients look their best by imparting them with a healthy-looking glow. The studio's roster of equipment includes UV tanning beds and booths from manufacturers such as Lotus and GardaSun, plus an airbrush unit that gently mists a bronzing solution and emits an adorable purring sound. Suntrenz's team also extends to massage therapists and medical technicians experienced in Botox.
