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: for $10, you get your choice of either an UltraBronz or Mystic tanning session at UltraTanz (up to $35 value), located at the Piccadilly Square Shopping Center.
As one of the largest high-pressure tanning salons in the Mobile area, the friendly, experienced tan technicians at UltraTanz strive to create a relaxing, stress-free atmosphere for their pigment-transforming patrons. In addition to offering luxurious amenities, including fluffy towels, complimentary juice, eyewear, and a clean, convenient make-up area, UltraTanz specializes in multiple full-body tanning methods. Visitors can use this Groupon for a single tanning session in an UltraBronz High Pressure Tanning Bed (a $35 value), which gets you a flawless 18-minute tan without peeling or burning. Tanning venturers can also use this deal for a UV-Free Mystic Spray Tan (a $30 value), a one-minute service that produces a natural-looking tan for five-to-seven days, ideal for preparing for an upcoming formal dance or for convincing a boyfriend you teleported to Cancun and back in one afternoon.
Sunlight, infrared light, and red light illuminate the spa-like interior of UltraTanz. After meeting with a certified tanning consultant, guests can step into one of their spacious, private spa rooms. Here, a spray or UV tanning system, hooked up to the sun with an invisible cable, awaits the chance to gold-plate exteriors. Alternately, the Mystic Tan HD booth airbrushes a sun-free tanning solution, while stand-up, lie-down, and leg-only ultraviolet beds bronze with varying degrees of "pressure," or intensity. During sessions, air conditioners and misting bottles keep things cool and comfortable, while complimentary bottles of juice and water keep guests hydrated. But UV light isn't the only thing glowing at UltraTanz—the Formostar infrared body wrap aims to detoxify and slim, the red light therapy bed is designed to smooth scar tissue and skin damage, and the Galvanic facial system imparts a toned glow of its own by softening fine lines.
