As the mercury starts to dip and the days become shorter, achieving a golden hue becomes increasingly harder. Stay as bronze as baby shoes with one spin in the power UVA-lamp-powered level-four tan. For instant gratification, opt for the UV-free Mystic Tan, which breathes life into former ghosts with a uniform, sun-kissed coating. Or take things slow and steady with 50 minutes in the Santa Barbara and Del Rey beds. Unsure tanners can defer to one of the on-staff tanologists, who will happily help clients select the option best suited to their needs.
Year Round Brown’s Smart Tan-certified staff are on hand to help tailor a tanning plan to fit your skin type and desired level of dermal doneness. In less than a minute, the Versa sunless spray system deploys a fine mist that delivers a moisturizing, UV-free bronzer to bodies recovering from a messy solar divorce. The ray-friendly can opt to catch some beams in the sleek, fast-acting signature bed. Signature level sessions last about 10–12 minutes, with an average of 5–8 sessions required to reach total tan development. Regardless of which option you choose, the luxurious rooms, softened lighting, and soothing sounds of the lobby waterfall will help melt your troubles and bring them to the surface where they can be cooled into an attractive golden enamel.
