With 20+ years of experience in the industry, tanning experts at Carolina Tan Factory do more than just offer UV and sunless-tanning services at both Carolina Tan Factory locations. They also work to create a comfortable tanning experience for her clients. Tropical-themed d?cor and friendly staffers greet guests as they step into either Norvell Sunless Auto Revolution salon. Back in the private tanning room, fresh, fluffy towels await clients? arrivals before they slip into a Ergoline or Sun Industries UV tanning bed or step into a MysticTan Sunless Booth. UV beds ensure even tans, since the bulbs are regularly replaced after 50% usage, and an array of lotions and bronzers wait on hand to protect skin and help ensure anything from a "just spent the day at the beach" tan to a "just spent three months organic farming on Mars" glow. And to add convenience to each client's experience, Carolina Tan Factory's remain open seven days a week and offer early morning and evening hours.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 230 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach — A Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: The Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Bodyheat Tanning, with 23 locations spanning Nevada (many open 24-hours), gilds bodies with the help of tanning beds in five levels, sunless spray tanning, and custom airbrush tans. VersaSpa systems automatically mist bronze color onto skin in 60 seconds. No matter what kind of tans clients are looking for, tanning experts analyze skin types and goals to help them choose the lotions, equipment, and perfect crayon shades to fit their needs.
For tan-free options, infrared body wraps melt inches, and Hydration Stations combine radiant heat, steam, and vibrations to turn tight muscles into butter. Red-light beds from iRenew eschew tanning in favor of reducing acne and fine lines. Additionally, the salons dispense myriad tanning lotions, lip glosses, and house-paint swatches for easy skin-tone matching.
The trained staff at Tan Las Vegas helps clients navigate three levels of UV beds and several spray-tanning options to craft a bronzing regime that best suits their skin type and desired results. UV tanning allows clients to build a base or maintain an existing tan in 12, 15, or 20 minutes. Automated VersaSpa booths alternate pigmented mists with drying jets to build a golden glow in less than one minute, with results that last for seven days—or longer if encased in amber. Technicians can also apply custom shades by hand with an airbrush system, which imparts a natural-looking, streak-free color that flatters bodily contours.
Tan Factory launched in 1996, operates in five pristinely maintained locations, and infuses skin with bronze glows using low- and high-pressure beds or sunless VersaSpa spray tans. High-pressure tanning beds radiate in all directions with ultraviolet quartz lamps mounted behind filtered glass. Acting like a high-quality pair of sunglasses or aluminum parasol, the shades keep harmful UV wavelengths from passing through, resulting in a safer tan with a small likelihood of burning the epidermis or making skin resemble the Tropicana logo. Regardless of the bronzing method clients choose, skilled staff are always on hand to offer suggestions for selecting products or keeping skin hydrated and extending the life of the tan.
Not everybody sings in the shower, but at Radiance Tanning Salon, every shower is filled with music. The salon's Super tanning bed includes a built-in air shower and radios with CD players, making each 20-minute tanning session to walk out with a radiant mood as well as a glowing complexion.
Along with UV tanning beds, Radiance's airbrush tanning services let clients achieve a sunless tan, while red-light therapy and hydration stations help skin stay youthful and moisturized as it slowly turns to solid bronze. The salon also offers colon hydrotherapy treatments.
