Enveloped in a warm, tawny-hued interior, Willow Glen Tanning's team has cultivated a spectrum of healthy skin tones since daybreak on the new millennium. The staff greets new customers with a skin-analysis questionnaire, which can help determine the most effective method for creating a base tan or for downgrading a sports competitor's silver trophy. Among the salon's tanning equipment, six UV beds re-create the sun's handiwork with medium- or high-pressure technology, which relies on UV-B rays to kickstart the production of skin-darkening melanin or UV-A rays to deepen an existing tan. Also geared toward customized color, sunless spray tanning is performed by an airbrush technician equipped with organic, aloe-vera-enriched bronzer, or by an automated Mystic Tan spray booth, which puts four shades of bronzing formulas at the client's fingertips. Spray treatments can be augmented with red-light-therapy sessions, which stimulate collagen production to firm and rejuvenate skin from the inside out.
