Can you tell me about those treatments and prices? I am located in Pittsburg, KS. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

      Hi Carol, we actually have two differant things that will help. First is the Infra Red Body Wrap, its a 50 min session. It helps reduce stretch marks, detoxifies the body & also burns calories & is great for inch loss. By appointment only & you need to drink plenty of water the day before, the day of & the day after. There is a video on the websight. It is $65 a session,5 sessions $249, & 10 sessions $399. This month our special is Buy one get one Free & we also offer that to new clients. The other is the Red Light Therapy bed. It is also Buy one get one Free this month. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles, improves skin tone & texture, normalizes pigmented spots, improves the appearance of scars, including stretch marks & acne scars, it also helps reduce pore size. A single session is $10, suggested treatments is 3-5 20 minute sessions per week. We offer 30 day unlimited for $49, 12 treatments for $66, & 21 treatments for $95. If you’ll click on services, then on the bed, it will show you prices. Hope this helps. God Bless & make it a great day!

  10. Cindy Holden April 7, 2013 at 10:42 pm #

    I am VERY fair skinned. I am planning a beach vacation in 4 months and would like to start developing a base. I have tried tanning before (years ago) and was only able to tolerate 4-6 mins at a time in the tanning beds and even then I was burned. I know you have numerous types and levels of beds and I have had numerous people say I need to check your salon out. Are there options for me?

  11. Tropical Tan April 9, 2013 at 6:36 pm #

    Hi Cindy, I would recommend for you to try the high pressure beds, either the Magic or the Sunsport. They have 1% burn ray & 99% bronzing rays. You will still need to start out at a very low time & work your way up to ensure that you do not burn. Keep in mind with these beds you will get color, but you still need to wear a good sunscreen outdoors. We sell Arbonne Sun care products, if you’re interested, ask one of my staff. Also, if you have never been to Tropical Tan, you will receive $50 in FREE services just for trying us out. That includes a Magic or SunSport high pressure bed, an entry level bed, & a 10 minute Aqua Massage. If you use the entry level bed, you will need to start out at the lowest time recommended or less, 3-4 minutes. If you feel your skin getting tight, that means you need to get out early. I hope we can help you achieve your goal. Thank you & God bless.

  12. Tara Lane April 10, 2013 at 5:56 pm #

    Hi! My name is Tara, I sell ‘It Works Global’ health and wellness line, and it is fairly new to our area, which is great bc that means, I get to introduce something to people that probably haven’t heard of it before!
    I would love to have a chance to talk to you about our products, our most popular item is the ultimate body wrap. It can be applied anywhere from your neck down. It tightens, tones, and lifts in as little as 45 minutes. It’s NOT water weight, like many wraps you hear about.
    I would be happy to let you try a wrap for free if you would like! Because I’m that sure you will love these products.
    The business opportunity is amazing, and the fact that this is very affordable doesn’t hurt at all!
    I live in Neosho, and I am flexible on meeting, my number is 417-592-5403. Call or text is just fine!
    Please don’t let this be just another email, give me a chance to help your business:-) have a great day!

  13. Denise Graves April 10, 2013 at 9:19 pm #

    Hi Tara, thank you for the information, but I am not interested at this time. I am an Arbonne Distributor & we already have an amazing health & welness line that is Pure, Safe, & Benificial, as well as the Infra Red Body Wrap system. Good luck on your new business. If you would like to hear more about Arbonne, let me know:-)
    Thank you, have a great day & God bless.

Thanks again also really liked the one night I got to tan at your Solon very impressive.

  19. Tropical Tan May 9, 2013 at 4:46 am #

    Hello Jennifer, I’m sorry to hear that. We normally do not do refunds. If you think you may still visit Joplin, we could exchange it for a set package that will not expire. Call & talk to one of my managers & I’m sure we can work something out. Could You please let me know your last name so we can make sure to take care of you. Thank you, have a great day & God bless.

  20. Terin June 27, 2013 at 6:37 pm #

    I just bought the one year pkg, I am needing to get results ASAP, can u please tell me the top 3 products and their prices that u offer to enhance my tan and see results quickly

  21. Tropical Tan June 28, 2013 at 5:39 pm #

    Hello Terin,
    Top products are Coconut Kisses $52, Black Noir $110, Pauly D Sexy Swagg $63, & Kardashian Glow $90. If you are needing results ASAP, I recommend doing a few upgrades & even doing a cocktail. That’s where you prep your skin for a UV free spay tan, tan in an upgrade bed (using only mystic or versa spa products) then do a Versa Spa or Mystic HD spray tan. It all depends. It takes time to build a base tan. Next time you go tan, ask one of my Smart tan certified staff, tell them what you are tanning for & how fast you need to get the results & they can help guide you. Hope this helps. God bless & have a great day!

  22. Samantha July 27, 2013 at 11:53 pm #

    Hi, I have pretty fair skin, so when I do try and tan it takes FOREVER to see results. I was just wondering if there was a certain lotion that is recommend for fair skin, that would help me tan a little faster.

    Also, I’ve never gotten a spray tan before, and would having fair skin make me look more orange than tan? I’ve heard that from a lot of people.

    Thanks so much for your help. (:

  23. Denise Graves August 1, 2013 at 4:14 am #

    Hello Samantha,

    Try Take Olive Me or Cute Cumber. They are from Swetish Beauty’s Botanical line.
    Also the Magic or Sunsport high pressure beds would be best for fair skin. They only have 1% burning ray & give you a beautiful golden tan. (You still need sunscreen out doors with these beds).
    The Versa Spa & the Mystic HD are the BEST & are very popular, I haven’t had any complaints of looking orange. Most fairer skin people prefer the Mystic HD, I’d recommend a level one Glow.
    Hope this helps:-) God bless & have a great day!

  24. Beth October 1, 2013 at 10:18 pm #

    Do you have a peach type color available in spray? What do you suggest for us ultra fair ladies who just want a healthy glow or mild tan to even up skin tone and don’t want to look orange. Thanks!

    • Beth October 1, 2013 at 10:23 pm #

      P.S. – My main issue is the “farmer tan” line on my arms that I really wish I could get under control. 🙂

    • Tropical Tan October 10, 2013 at 11:08 am #

      Hello Beth,
      A lot of people with fairer skin seem to like the Mystic HD. We have a range of colors from just a glow, light, med, & dark and then you can add bronzers to that if you wish. I’d highly recommend coming in & talking to one of our managers, they can answer any questions & help you make the right choice. One of my managers loves the Versa Spa (She has darker skin tone) the other manager loves the Mystic HD (She is fairer skinned). If you are a new customer, you get Buy one get one Free, that way you can try both booths. It doesn’t turn you orange, UV Free spray tans have come along way! It gives you a beautiful golden tan. You need to make sure to shower & exfoliate before you spray & for best results, you should use the Mystic or Versa Spa product line. Do not use bar soap or any lotions or oils. Hope that helps. God bless & have a great day.

  25. Tropical Tan October 23, 2013 at 11:10 am #

    The best way to check out what the Mystic HD has for color choices is to stop in & let one of our Smart Tan Sales Specialist help you. Mystic offers a glow that just gives you a nice glow. I think that would be the closest to peach. We have not had anyone look orange:-).
    Hope that helps. Have a great day & God bless.

  26. Aurora December 7, 2013 at 2:40 pm #

    Hi I have not tanned in a while but I tan super easy. About one or two tans and I will be dark, I want to get pretty dark so that I can keep staying dark till prom season. Which tanning bed do you recommend? I imagine I will come back once or twice every month. So I was just curious what would be best bed and tanning lotion?

    • Tropical Tan January 13, 2014 at 11:18 pm #

      In order to help you choose the best bed & lotion, you really need to come in & take a tour & let one of our smart tan certified staff members assist you. Every skin type is different. For instance, my favorite bed is the cyberdome, I get really dark because I have Indian in me. But if you are fair skin with blue eyes you should use the magic, it’s a high pressure bed that is 99% bronzing rays & 1% burning ray. I tan In the magic is like 6-10 sessions in a conventional bed. The cyberdome is a high definition bed with a mixture of UVA & UVB rays with reflector lamps. Your tan still develops for 3 days after using this bed. We offer several brands of lotion as well. Again I recommend visiting with a staff member so you can decide if you want a tingle, a bronzed or just a maintainer. We have a large selection

  27. Faith Smith December 19, 2013 at 2:00 pm #

    • Tropical Tan January 13, 2014 at 10:36 pm #

      Yes, you have to be 18 years old or you need a parent to sign for you, even for spray tanning.

  29. Jason April 10, 2014 at 12:23 pm #

  30. Mallory June 12, 2014 at 6:57 am #

    Hi, I heard that you are offering a full year package for 140$ I currently live out of town, but I will be leaving there in August, and I thought this was a great deal, I was wondering if it would be possible to purchase the package over the phone? And does the yearly package include upgrades to better beds at any extra cost?
    thank you

    • Tropical Tan June 12, 2014 at 10:15 pm #

      Hi Mallory, yes, as long as you give them all the information needed. I reccommend asking for a manager. The yearly will start now, but that is still an amazing savings! You receive perks with the yearly, 20% off select merchandise & lotions, you can get 1/2 off the Run of the House (30 days unlimited tanning & a daily aqua massage). Or You can upgrade to other beds for an extra cost. Have a great day & God bless!

  31. Mallory June 12, 2014 at 8:19 am #

    Hi, I was wondering if you could buy a package over the phone? I won’t be living in Joplin until August, but heard there was a good deal on Yearly packages.
