By pairing UV and UV-free tanning treatments with resort-like facilities, Tan FX has become Canada's fastest growing indoor-tanning franchise over the past decade. The company's numerous locations—scattered throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba—feature modern UV-tanning beds and booths capable of bronzing bodies in as little as 10 minutes and UV-free Mystic Tan systems that apply color in seconds. To ensure all tanning contraptions are used safely and properly, Tan FX keeps its Smart Tan–certified staff up to date on the latest industry knowledge with online training programs and in-person interviews with the sun.
Aspirant aestheticians attend M.C. College to acquire a broad spectrum of beauty and calm-instilling skills. Supervised trainees hone techniques within the on-site spa and salon by administering a comprehensive menu of prettifying services. For those who choose M.C. College’s Total Indulgence package, the relaxation-obsessed aestheticians pamper day-spa dwellers with a revitalizing body wrap, remineralizing tub soak, moisturizing treatment, and a revivifying facial. Feelings of inner calm are sealed in with a mani-pedi pairing, make-up retouch, industrial-strength duct tape, and hairstyle. A light lunch is provided during the extended session.
The meticulously cleaned studio at Dermagraphics at Lesley's beautifies bodies with a host of aesthetically geared services. Opt for an hour of tattooing, and an able artist can emblazon flirtatious flowers or stern No Trespassing signs across bare epidermises. Clients can choose from their tattoo artists' repertoire or instead sport a customized tattoo of their own design.
Tan FX is a full-service, upscale tanning retreat staffed with friendly Smart Tan professionals who are committed to serving the needs of pallid pelts with the latest tanning technology. Tan FX's posh bronzing beds feature digital timers and an audio system with stereo input so that simulated sun soakers may relax or jam to a whale-and-dolphin duet. Session times and prices vary by bed, from $9 for 20 minutes in the Ulimate Envy 143 turbo bed to $10 for 10 minutes in a Sundome 548V stand-up booth, with 100-minute increments also available for all beds ($33+). For a UV-free tanning alternative, the Mystic Tan spray-tanning system ($35 value/session) gilds skin tones with a paraben-free solution composed of wholesome ingredients, including green-tea extract and açaí. The Mystic Tan system airbrushes on a streak-free golden-bronze shine that softens and moisturizes skin with aloe vera, the desert's answer to maple syrup.
Renee Hughes leads the team at Body Logic Wellness Center with a skill set that could put a one-man band to shame—she's a master aesthetician, licensed massage therapist, certified colon hydrotherapist, Endermologie and lipomassage technician, and certified electrologist. Hughes’s team rises to meet her impressive pedigree as they dole out detoxifying wellness treatments, apply eyelash extensions and permanent makeup, and wield lasers to eradicate hair and land-speeders double-parked outside the office.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
