There's no shortage of rays to soak in at Hot Spot Tanning. The salon offers bed tanning, standup spray tanning, and even a mobile airbrush outfit. This breadth of bronzing options makes it easy to achieve a summery glow without going to the pool or that scary, sandy place where the land suddenly turns into water. In addition to darkening complexions, Hot Spot Tanning specializes in red-light therapy, which can help improve skin's tone and texture.
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.
Licensed skin therapist Casey Durrett draws from her background in clinical aesthetics and education in skincare to heal and rejuvenate precious integumentary tissue. Ably standing alone at the helm, Durrett takes on all the responsibilities of her office by herself, tending to guests one by one without the need for receptionists or other therapists. Each guest relaxes in the enchanting solitude of the spa all on their own, free to contemplate or engage in conversation with the Japanese-inspired lanterns and floor lamps of paper and varnished wood, or the fragrant flowers and towering purple orchid. Gentle volleys of diamonds slough away dead skin cells during microdermabrasion treatments, and specially-formulated chemical peels and downtime-free cold-laser therapy restore visages to a youthful, consistent complexion.
