The technologies at Sol Wellness Studios have evolved since the holistic health and beauty centre opened its doors in 1998, but the goal of the staff remains the same: to help clients look and feel their best. The front desk resembles a sylvan general store, with wooden furniture, eggplant-coloured walls, and ivy winding along the ceiling. Inside the facility, the staff members administer vitamin-D tests to reveal nutritional deficiencies, and they prescribe nutritional supplements for general health and weight loss. Physicians oversee aesthetic treatments such as Botox, and noninvasive Yolo Curve lasers contour bodies for a silhouette that’s smoother than a Barry White record dripping with butter. Clients can add the finishing touches to their look with a custom spray tan or teeth whitening.
As clients enter Island Tan’s salons, they are greeted by an atmosphere reminiscent of a tropical island. Thatched grass roofs surround colorful displays of tanning products, while orange walls bring to mind a coastal sunset or an apple in disguise. UV tanners take their pick from lie-down beds and stand-up machines, while airbrush tans evenly disperse golden glows.
At Elements Sun Spa, Walnut Groves' premiere tanning studio, we are dedicated to providing you with the safest, cleanest, most relaxing way to tan. We treat your visits here like a mini-vacation, a quick get-away, personal time set aside for contemplation.
Luminous Skin Care limits its menu to two aesthetic services: laser hair removal and microdermabrasion. The studio’s licensed and trained technicians channel all of their expertise into these areas to ensure that their clients’ skin stays as smooth as a saxophone dipped in chocolate. They target follicles with both light and thermal energies to safely and permanently eliminate hair from practically anywhere on the body. When dull complexions need a boost, they wield crystal-tipped microdermabrasion wands that gently exfoliate to reduce wrinkles and age spots.
Inside Ginger Sun Spa, guests recline on the Ergoline Open Sun 1050 bed, revelling in the high-pressure bed’s adjustable facial tanners and built-in sound system. The Sun Capsule Cosmo 250 stand-up booth caramelizes skin in seven minutes with 54 performance UV bulbs, and its adjustable ceiling hand grips ensure clients stay comfortable while holding up their arms in order to get more even tans. With its certified airbrush technicians, the tanning spa is able to forgo UV rays or apricot Crayola crayons to bronze skin, instead using a hand-held Norvell sunless-spray-tan applicator. Other beautification services include manicures and infrared-sauna sessions, which help burn calories, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and improve skin issues such as eczema.
Glam Tanning Lounge welcomes denizens to a studio where patterned wall coverings and ornate fixtures frame new tanning beds. The Playboy Glitz Celebrity Sunless continuous action spray wafts an instant golden glow, which takes 2–4 hours to set, fully darken, and render corporeal landscapes completely bulletproof. Lasting up to seven days, the spray won't interfere with other tanning endeavors, resists sweat and fruity mixed drinks, dries quickly, and sprays continuously at any angle to facilitate even coverage. The fragrance-free facial serum bronzer layers colour-releasing bronze beads that darken mugs up to an entire day, combined with skin-firming and lifting agents that help tighten skin.
The Smart Tan–certified team at Tan de Soleil assists clients in getting the best out of their experiences by keeping immaculate tanning studios stocked with modern tanning beds and spray-tan booths. Before customers slip into a KBL lay-down bed or a Sun Capsule VHR stand-up unit, the staff provides them with sanitized protective eyewear and towels. They also change the bulbs in those beds regularly to keep them at optimal tanning efficiency.
For UV-free tans, the crew educates its guests about the use of VersaSpa and Mystic Tan spray-tanning booths for custom tans with solutions that moisturize and nourish skin. These tanning booths can gild tanners in about 60 seconds, but for those who wish to take their time, the studios come equipped with a vanity area. In there, guests lounge and use supplied nail files, hairspray, gel, and beauty products to get ready for the rest of their days. The space also allows for phone conversations so customers don’t have to feel intrusive when making personal calls or leaving in-your-face messages on King Midas’s voicemail.
