SoCal Tanning San Diego
Within the clean, earth-toned walls of SoCal Tanning, friendly staffers help guests achieve bronzed bods with a variety of tanning equipment. Magic Tan standup booths mist skin with a natural-looking spray tan, or horizontal or vertical UV beds build traditional tans. The team's tanning-bed family even includes a legs-only machine, which is ideal for parents who spent a day at the beach buried up to the waist in children's sand creations. The salon also offers the beauty-enhancing services of two aestheticians and a hairstylist, as well as red-light therapy that diminishes fine lines, acne, or scars.
