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.
Majestic Sun Salon's stand-up and lay-down beds have modern features such as cooling fans and elevated platforms to help legs tan faster. Those who prefer sunless methods can opt for Mystic Tan spray booths, custom airbrush tanning, or wishing for a tan, but only two of these methods will bronze skin for up to seven days. Other beautifying treatments include red-light therapy, which boosts collagen restoration and can diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and scars. Infrared body wraps detoxify the body, burning up to 1,400 calories an hour while also softening fat tissue and encouraging its expulsion from the body.
