Prior to tanning salons, the only way to achieve a beautiful copper glow was to boil pennies and bathe in the scalding reduction. Achieve a less-painful sheen with today's Groupon, which gets you tanning services at Sun Splash Salon on Broadwater Avenue. Choose between two options:
- For $20, you get one week of unlimited level one tanning followed by one week of unlimited level one through four tanning that also includes one level five tanning session (a $45 total value).
- For $20, you get two sunless, UV-free Mystic Tans (a $40 value).
Sun Splash Salon uses cutting-edge technology to slice cleanly through the problem of pale, unsunned skin. With the two-week unlimited-tan option, aspiring body bronzers start with seven days in the level one Tropical or Lumina tanning machines, in which they can build a gentle base tan and skin can gradually say goodbye to its security blanket of sun-blocking melanin. In the second week, four levels of tanning power are available, with an option to spend one session in the level five Matrix High Pressure tanning bed, a high-tech dynamo of skin-darkening might, featuring 33 UV-A, high-pressure lamps arranged above and below the tanner. The bed's tilting mechanism and series of reflectors ensure even distribution of the bronzing rays, and electronic safety circuits stop the session in the event that a filter breaks or the sun barges in the room in a jealous rage.
Those looking for a healthy glow without the use of lamps can avail themselves of the Mystic Tan sunless spray system. The UV-free spray polarizes tanning particles as they are applied to the skin, causing each individual molecule to have wildly differing political views and ensuring that they studiously avoid one another, leading to an admirably even tan. Customers using the Mystic spray are in seasoned hands with Sun Splash's spray-tanning techs, who learned their craft at the sides of Hollywood aestheticians.

An abundance of hanging lamps light up this trendy salon, but it's the lamps inside the tanning beds that really pack a punch. Set inside private treatment rooms, six types of beds blast clients with just the right amount of rays, with options for developing base tans or even deeper hues. Clients can also step into the UV-free Mystic Tan booth for a gentle mist of streak-free color.
