Having begun as a single tanning shop in Greenville during the autumn of 1990, Ultratan has since blossomed into more than 70 locations throughout the Carolinas and Georgia due to its popularity and commitment to quality service. Over the years, the collection of spas has accumulated numerous awards such as Best Tanning Salon from the Daily Gamecock for providing the best equipment in both tanning beds and spray-tan technology. As a member of the International Smart Tan Network, its commitment to safe tans also encompasses a passion for keeping their customers educated about responsible tanning routines and never tanning without a helmet.
Professional Electrolysis's lead electrologist, Carol Smith, zaps away clients' unwanted cilium with Zeus-like precision, yielding permanent results coveted by tweezers, wax, and razors. Prior to the appointment, she holds a phone consultation to answer questions about the procedure and ease away any lingering fears by relaying her experience. During each of the three sessions, Carol can adjust her equipment's intensity settings upon request as she blitzes follicles with heat and electricity, relinquishing hairs from their epidermal prisons. In a completely private setting, patients can choose one area per session to focus on exclusively, such as unsightly facial whiskers or patchy backside hair that naturally spells out "kick me." Newly bald skin then revels in the soothing power of witch-hazel compresses designed to reduce redness and cool the skin. Customers should schedule sessions three weeks apart for optimal results.
