About Us

Topus Tanning and Beauty Salon is a locally owned and operated tanning salon that has been in business since 1992. It was the first salon opened in the Waldorf Charles County Maryland area, a Southern MD suburb in of Washington DC.

Topus Tanning & Beauty Salon is a truly exclusive tanning experience, unlike any other tanning salon near the surrounding Southern Maryland communities of White Plains, Waldorf, Hughesville, Bryans Road, Indian, Marshall, Nanjemoy, Faulkner, Newburg, Issue and all of Charles County.

Topus is designed to deliver the deepest, darkest tan possible through the use of Wolff and Tanses tanning equipment. The power and quantity of the bulbs exceeds the competition. Our goal is to create a soothing atmosphere. Only the best amenities are offered to our clients - from a clean and inviting environment to towels for cleansing - everything to complete your tanning experience.

Monday - Friday:7am - 10pm
Saturday: 9am - 7pm
Sunday: 10am - 7pm

Topus tans you faster with fewer visits saving you more time, money, and gas than most of the
Southern Maryland salons because our lamps are newer and hotter!

Topus is a certified member of the National Tanning Training Institute or NTTI to improve the professionalism and reputation of the indoor tanning industry. Formal training teaches our salon personnel how to recommend proper exposure times for each tanner and it also helps them to understand the technical aspects of indoor tanning.

Interesting Tanning Facts:

  • Fact #1: Sun exposure could actually help prevent cancer
    Evidence: Several studies have shown that Vitamin D, whose only reliable source for humans comes from sunshine, may play a role in retarding or arresting pre-cancerous cells in the body from reproducing.
  • Fact #2: The benefits of sun exposure far outweigh the risks of sunburn and overexposure.
    Evidence: Non-melanoma skin cancer, which may be linked to sunburn and overexposure to ultraviolet light, has an extremely low death rate of 0.3 percent. The following diseases can be subdued by regular exposure to sun:
    • Breast Cancer
    • Colon Cancers
    • Osteoporosis
  • Fact #3: People who receive regular exposure have a lower incidence of malignant melanoma than those who don't.
    Evidence: Researchers have known for years that individuals who receive regular exposure to sunshine have a lower risk of contracting melanoma skin cancer.
  • Fact #4: If regular sun exposure could prevent cancer, why do we always hear the opposite?
    Evidence: The fear of the sun, fear of wrinkles and the fear of skin cancer is a multi-billion dollar industry led by special interest groups. Lobbyists for pharmaceutical firms that sell billions of dollars of sunscreens and anti-sun cosmetics have teamed with dermatologists to promote a misinformed campaign of sun abstinence.
  • Fact #5: Why don't dermatologists like tanning?
    Evidence: The dermatology industry makes most of its money on "vanity visits" from patients. Skin cancer is an important issue to the dermatology industry because it represents the only subject that its lobbyists can promote as critical.
  • Fact #6: Is skin cancer a major concern?
    Evidence: Absolutely, but it is a concern that professional indoor tanning facilities feel they are addressing effectively by teaching people to tan intelligently indoors and outdoors.

Our Beds

Our Sundash Regular beds have 24-26 lamps and have a lower UVB % for those with fair skin or those who want an easier, less heated session. These sessions run up to 20 minutes.

Our Wolff Stimulator Beds have 24-28 lamps and have a higher UVB% to give you a quicker reaction after your tanning session. The higher UVB stimulates melanin production in your skin. These sessions run up to 20 minutes.

Our Tanses Gold Beds have 52 body lamps and (4) 400 watt facials. They have a higher UVA% to bronze your outer skin and give you a healthy glow. These beds are 10 minute sessions.

Our Norvell Airbrush Tanning System is like no other in the Southern Maryland area. The Norvell system is top of the line in the tanning industry and delivers perfect results, instant color, different shades, multiple fragrances, and no mess. The sessions are quick, the tan lasts about a week and the session is performed by one of our certified HVLP technicians. We can also offer our custom airbrush tan for the same price as the MysticTan system our competitors offer and guarantee better results than any automated spray booth.
