During custom airbrush-tanning sessions, a quick first-visit consultation outlines guests' needs before Lifetime Tans' body bronzers spray a natural-looking glow onto epidermal canvases. Trained technicians armed with a handheld tanning system mist anatomies with even coats of custom bronzing potions to deepen the hue of paled complexions. For an additional fee, guests can bedazzle skin with an optional gold-leaf shimmer for a golden-brown finish that shines as brilliantly as a bonfire fueled by encyclopedias for up to three days.
After beginning to adopt more environmentally conscious practices in their personal lives, hairstylists Joy and Jeremy realized how hard the salon atmosphere could be on Mother Nature and set out to open their own eco-friendly salon. Their salon's open floor plan, organized into chic styling stations and suffused in natural light from numerous surrounding windows, highlights bright modern salon furniture, all of which is reused. In addition to the décor, their green reach expands to the salon's all-natural styling products and energy-efficient, retractable blow dryers, which dangle from the ceiling like a paratrooper after a poorly executed landing. Their resident aestheticians, nail techs, and massage therapists dole out the salon's expansive menu of services, pampering clients with custom facials, head-to-toe waxing treatments, and relaxing mani-pedis.
The licensed and experienced staff has years of experience sprucing up skin and practice the latest in skin-care technology. Each treatment is specifically designed to make faces maintain youthfulness and feel healthier. Rekindle the glow with the HydraFacial, a procedure that extracts dearly departed cells while simultaneously hydrating and cleansing the skin. The process helps to conceal wrinkles and blemishes and eliminate oily skin, leaving faces looking fresh, naturally enhanced, and ready for a drive-by pie smashing from that pesky neighborhood clown.
Spavia Day Spa's staff pampers its guests by doling out muscle-melting massages and rejuvenating treatments using natural products. Guests receive a bathrobe and sandals before each treatment as they wait in the spa's retreat room. Because "relaxation" can mean different things to different people, Spavia specially customizes their treatments for each guest, from focusing massages on problem areas to avoiding the glowing whisker during exfoliating facials. Spavia also offers membership packages that allow for affordable treatments, and provides a free signature treatment for a nominated local hero or community member in need through their Spavia Cares program.

The Mystic Tan HD experience begins as you step into your private coloring chamber, where your body will be evenly coated with a personalized color combination of naturally hued mist. The skin glazing takes minutes to complete, and a full-body drying system ensures you'll emerge healthily bronzed and clothes-ready. The non-UV tanning alternative contains concentrations of aloe vera and antioxidants such as green tea and acai. The Palms Tanning Resort is the official tanning resort of the dancers and cheerleaders for the Denver Broncos, Nuggets, and Outlaws. It boasts a nine-foot waterfall over a sandstone rock cave and private, thatch-roofed bronzing "bungalows," fully stocked with towels, protective eye gear, and bottled water.
