Smart Tan–certified managers oversee all the comings and goings at each Island Sun Tanning location as staff members help patrons shade shift with bronzing equipment and products by Devoted Creations and Designer Skin. UV beds cool skin with air-conditioning systems and calm the senses with aromatherapy mists. MP3-player docks increase the relaxation potential, allowing bodies to settle into the beds' contoured confines and listen to their favorite music or bedtime stories read by Morgan Freeman.
For patrons seeking sunless options, staffers utter secret passwords that open the doors of VersaSpa and Mystic Tan spray-tan booths, which leave bodies bronzed for up to seven days. Red-light-therapy sessions aim to firm and tone skin, and hydration stations combine steam, radiant heat, and liquid vitamins to extend the life of new tans.
When not reuniting bodies with their ideal shades of bronze, the caring crew has worked to fight hunger in the local community by collecting donated canned goods for Philabundance.
Hollywood Tans' proprietary booths and technologies produce consistent skin tones without the hassle of baking in the sun. The studio boasts roughly 15 upright, sanitary booths that allow customers to do jumping jacks as they build bronze in 8–11 minutes. For those who prefer to shade sans rays, Mystic spray vestibules banish pallor by misting pelts in aloe-rich custom shades that last up to seven days, and a proprietary line of tanning lotions helps maintain and maximize color between visits.
Inside a brick façade lies Touch of Bronze’s brown-hued beauty haven, where shelves brim with tanning lotions awaiting their call to service. Guests follow elegant chandeliers down the salon’s hallway before slipping into rooms outfitted with tanning beds or treatment tables. On these tables, techs sheathe physiques in detoxifying body wraps that aim to shrink fat cells the way jean shorts shrink egos.
Fully automatic AutoBronzer tanning booths give vocal instruction in English, Spanish, or French as they politely guide guests through five-minute tanning sessions. Stationed in private rooms, tanners strike upright sunbathing poses as four nozzles mist one of three shades onto physiques in even, streak-free coats. Each booth's open-air design speeds drying time, boosts comfort, and gives patrons' pet balloons plenty of room to roam.
