More than a decade ago, Dawn M. Sears, LME, opened medical skincare and aesthetic laser center Skinsation, where a licensed physician oversees nonsurgical beauty procedures. In the hands of technicians, GentleMax and Vbeam Candela laser systems remove pesky stubble and unflattering vascular lesions. Alternatively, permanent makeup can simplify morning routines, rendering beauty basics such as eyeliner, lip liner, eyebrow filler, and war paint obsolete by imbuing the skin’s dermal layer with natural pigments. Five injectables, such as Botox and Restylane, smooth client’s brows with minimal downtime, and trained technicians coat physiques in sunless Airtan liquid, whose bronzing effects last 7–10 days. Clients can refer to the website for a complete list of services.
With 37 years of experience to her name, Mitzi Sanders leads the staff at both her Goodlettsville and Gallatin salon locations. Stocked with products from Matrix, Paul Mitchell, and Redkin, the crew goes to work prettying up heads by rendering an extensive selection of tress-focused services. More than just a hair salon, Mitzi's boasts the full spectrum of body-bronzing methods; they offer traditional tanning, spray tans, and giant vats filled with melted butterscotch candy.
Sun Tan City's specially designed devices bathe bodies in an even, bronze glow. The tanning beds ($9–$34) apply a delicate balance of UVA and UVB rays to create the fun-in-the-sun look, with varying session durations depending on the bed's level of intensity—fast, faster, fastest, or instant. The VersaSpa Sunless Tanning System ($34) can provide a natural, even-tonal transformation without the use of UV rays. Standing upright in the VersaSpa booth, your body will be gently misted with either a clear or bronze solution, which will then be combined with an anti-aging moisturizing skin treatment. Each booth is scientifically designed to provide a breathe-easy treatment and features an exhaust system to send the lingering mist out while sealing in skin's new shade. Finally, after a few minutes in the comfort air-dry system, your body will be dry to the touch.
A slew of stand-up, lie-down, and airbrush tanning options make up Solarium Tan Spa's retinue of skin-gilding services. Patrons looking for a deep bronze hue can opt for a month of unlimited access to the salon's level-two and stand-up beds, spending 15 minutes soaking in rays to achieve a sun-kissed glow without joining a solar-deity dating service. Otherwise, trained tan technicians spritz bodies in curve-customized tans from an airbrush-tanning wand, aiming to create natural-looking highlights and a whole-body bronze with Norvell products.

Clients can also watch pent-up stress and tension swirl into the ether during relaxing massages performed by a licensed massage therapist.
