Like getting the perfect glaze on a ham, achieving optimal skin caramelization is a delicate task that must be completed prior to a luau. Take control of your tonal transformation with today's Groupon: for $35 you get one month of unlimited tanning or four spray-tan sessions (up to an $80 value) at Tan USA, located on NW Highway 441 in Alachua.
Co-owners Bill Decarlis and Graylan Franklin have been serving up tropical tans to the Alachua area since 2009. Bring in pale, beach-deprived dermises and let the friendly staff guide you through the world of self-bake tanning beds, with traditional lay-down beds as well as vertical tanning booths for tanners who have already had their daily nap. Alternately, four spray-tan sessions can coat your hide in a pleasing, even hue, achieving sensuous, sun-kissed results minus the exposure to UV rays or Apollo’s tiresome knock-knock jokes.
Tan USA’s cozy, clean confines boast a bevy of Devoted Creations, Swedish Beauty, and other products that help maintain and achieve desired levels of deCasperization. Upgrades are available for an additional fee, greatly increasing your odds of success during the swimsuit portion of a bronze statue competition.
Since 2009, Tan USA owners Graylan Franklin and Bill Decarlis have welcomed visitors into a studio that looks more like a hotel than a tanning salon. Framed artwork decorates a long hallway that leads to private, numbered treatment rooms that house eight conventional tanning beds and one standup booth; many are equipped with extras such as air conditioning, MP3 docks, or a personal chef. A Norvell airbrush spray–tanning system provides an option for UV–free shade shifting, with sugar-based bronzing sprays that can last up to 10 days, and red-light therapy bathes skin in rays believed to help to evaporate fine lines and improve skin texture. For customers too busy to check in, Tan USA can also provide a faux glow on the go, courtesy of its mobile spray-tanning service, which may also be booked for events such as weddings and proms.
