Bodyheat Tanning, with 23 locations spanning Nevada (many open 24-hours), gilds bodies with the help of tanning beds in five levels, sunless spray tanning, and custom airbrush tans. VersaSpa systems automatically mist bronze color onto skin in 60 seconds. No matter what kind of tans clients are looking for, tanning experts analyze skin types and goals to help them choose the lotions, equipment, and perfect crayon shades to fit their needs.
For tan-free options, infrared body wraps melt inches, and Hydration Stations combine radiant heat, steam, and vibrations to turn tight muscles into butter. Red-light beds from iRenew eschew tanning in favor of reducing acne and fine lines. Additionally, the salons dispense myriad tanning lotions, lip glosses, and house-paint swatches for easy skin-tone matching.
The staff at Tan Factory bronzes their clients’ birthday suits with UV-free airbrush tanning for the entire body, enlisting the manmade sunshine found in California Tan products. During the 20-minute sessions, tanning technicians slather hides in sun-kissed hues that can last from 7–10 days or until clients tumble into a vat of Liquid Paper. Tan Factory continuously seeks out current technology and supplements its spray applications with lotions from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty. Tanning mavens recommend exfoliating beforehand and wearing loose clothing to the sessions, and recommends that customers avoid any moisturizers, fragrances, and laser-light shows on the day of the treatments.
Spray di Sole at LV Spray Studio's staff browns skin by spraying bronzing beauties with an alcohol-free sunless-tanning solution. The process, which is tailored to specific body types and desired looks, starts with a technician-supervised full-body application of DHA, an alcohol-free organic formula that reacts with the skin's amino acids to produce a natural and safe tan. Without any perfumes, odors, or preservatives, the fast-drying pigmentation doesn't leave moisture that can cause accidental clothing discoloration or lingering scents that can fill a suspicious sun with jealousy. The dose of liquid light also infuses patrons' skin with heaping helpings of green-tea-leaf extract, aloe vera, and vitamins E and D. Once applied, the bronzer produces an immediate coloration that, once washed, leaves skin one–two shades darker, fades naturally in 7–10 days, and lets guests bring color to their faces without head-butting a painter.
With its standup booths, advanced spray-tanning equipment, and four levels of tanning beds, Sun Studio Tan brings the beach indoors—minus the sand and salty water, of course. The studio’s basic beds cultivate golden base tans in approximately 10 sessions; high-pressure Level 4 beds, on the other hand, get the job done so fast that there is hardly time to enjoy a few songs on the CD/MP3 stereo sound systems hooked up inside. Sun Studio Tan's bronzing emporium also hosts VersaSpa spray-tan booths for quick, UV-free tanning. The innovative system tans and hydrates skin in 60 seconds, or roughly the same amount of time it takes to jump in and out of a scalding-hot deep fryer.
At Straight Up Tanning, a collection of lay-down and standup tanning beds keeps patrons bronzed the whole year through. Customized airbrush-tanning formulas also present a sun-kissed glow in a matter of seconds. Alternatively, patrons can step inside a red-light therapy booth, where UV-free rays help to soften fine lines and smooth out cellulite.
Body and Soul’s cadre of sunless-tanning techs delivers streak-free, natural-looking color in just 15 minutes. During spray-tan sessions, they mist physiques with an FDA-approved tanning solution that’s customized to skin type and desired hue. After the color sets in, clients retain their bronzed appearance for up to one week.
