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.
With a collection of power tanning beds, GTL Tanning & Lotion Outlet alters the hues of its clientele to ready them for a day at the beach or a night on the town. The knowledgeable staff guides guests through the operation of each stand-up and lay-down bed to ensure they achieve their desired results and don’t try to use the equipment as a time machine. The Extreme bed imparts colour in 7-minute sessions, using an ergonomically designed, extra-wide construction to reduce feelings of claustrophobia while full-body fans keep skin cool. The Entropy bed on the other hand, lets clients stand up throughout their session and emits light that’s less than 1 per cent UVB rays to help prevent burns. The bronzing gurus also offer more than 100 tanning lotions from designer brands such as Caribbean Gold, Ed Hardy, and Emerald Bay to boost results.
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.
Located inside Before the Beach, XtremeLashCanada-certified technician Elfie elongates clients' eyelashes with long-lasting extensions. The mink lash extensions allow clients to enjoy luscious eyelashes without mascara, and last an average of 6 weeks with proper care. Elfie carefully attaches extensions to individual eyelashes with a hypoallergenic adhesive formulated for the most sensitive of eyes. She is also certified to beautify eyes with MICHA lashes.
