O Baby 4D's ultrasound technicians introduce parents to their babies using 2D, 3D, and 4D ultrasound technology. At 15 weeks into the pregnancy, the machines can determine the baby's gender, and at 16–26 weeks, the machines can show images of the baby as a whole. At 28–32 weeks, babies' faces become more defined.
The 3D machines show parents crisp images of their babies, and the 4D ultrasound machines add motion to show parents what their babies look like moving around. Children are welcome at the ultrasound appointments and can stay entertained with O Baby 4D's stash of books and toys while parents decide if it's in good taste or great taste to name the baby Princess Aurora.
In addition to ultrasound scans, O Baby 4D offers prenatal and Swedish massage. It also has an onsite boutique full of maternity and baby apparel, as well as decor for nurseries and playrooms.
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.
