The Ultimate Tan & Med Spa's locations house traditional and UV-free tanning equipment alongside teams that are certified to perform a slate of med-spa and salon treatments. Cosmetic injectables, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels aim to restore epidermal radiance, and ThinSpa weight-loss plans and CelluPulse cellulite-removal treatments help clients shift into a svelter shape. To soothe away accumulated stresses, massage therapists customize sessions to each client’s unique needs, drawing from a range of modalities to leave musculature more relaxed than a zen master’s stress ball.
With more than 20 locations in the greater Portland metro area and more throughout Washington, Tan Republic outfits their salons with sleek, modern designs and earth-toned walls, filling private tanning rooms with a suite of melanin-conjuring machines. Guests can choose from Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths or high-pressure tanning beds. The salons also offer dozens of varieties of lotion, each formulated for specific bronzing needs.
Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
The technology-driven treatments inside Islands Tanning MedSpa help bolster the body's glow and reduce its circumference. Inside Magic and Tanses UV beds, 12,800-watt bulbs saturate skin with darkening rays more safely than receiving a hug from a dwarf star. Meanwhile, UV-free Mystic and VersaSpa machines spray the epidermis with a bronze hue, and Fit body wraps fuse infrared-heat energy with constricting wraps that help shrink fat cells. Islands Tanning MedSpa also offers memberships.
