What is spray tanning?
Spray tanning is the latest thing to hit the tanning industry. A spray tan technician uses a spray gun to apply a tanning solution (DHA) to the client's body. The spray gun is attached to an air turbine and the solution is applied using a precisely controlled fine mist?
Is it safe?
Yes, Sunless tanning is a safe and proven method of obtaining a tan. As with any personal product, sensitivity can occur but is very rare. If an individual has ever had any adverse effects utilizing self-tanning products or moisturizers, they might experience similar effects with spray tanning. The active ingredient DHA or dihydroxiacetone is derived from sugar beets and has been FDA approved for topical application and used for tanning creams since the 1960's. DHA has also been used in food and cosmetics for decades. When DHA comes in contact with the amino acids of the skin, it creates a natural chemical reaction that causes the skin to appear tanned.
Does spray tanning protect me from the sun?
NO! Spray tanning DOES NOT protect you from the sun. It is recommended that a sunscreen be used at any time you go out into the sun.
How long does spray tanning last?
Depending on the skin type, a tan will last 7 to 10 days (depending on how well you lotion on a regular basis). Like a suntan, the sunless tan will fade gradually, as your skin exfoliates. However, you can help to extend your tan by using moisturizers daily.
How often can I tan?
Tanning can be performed every 3 to 7 days if desired. Spray tanning back to back on the same day, is not advised, as it does not give the DHA time to set between tans.
How many times does a person need to spray tan to achieve the color they want?
Everybody's skin type and color is unique. A person will be tan after one session, but they may want an additional session to achieve a deeper shade of tan. Once they reach the desired color they should be able to maintain it by tanning once a week. Darker tanning solution is also available for a nominal cost.
How long does it take for a session?
Full body sessions take about 15 minutes including drying time.
Will spray tan cause freckles?
No, in fact, in most cases, freckles and blemishes will become less pronounced because the lighter skin areas are darkened to help skin color evenly.
Will spray tanning work on fair-skinned people?
YES, we have very satisfied customers who were formerly lily white and now are completely satisfied with their color after spray tanning.
Do I have to take off all of my clothes for the application?
No, this is an individual choice. You can wear a bikini, swimsuit, g-string, bra and panties or be naked; it's entirely up to you. Male clients must wear some form of undergarment. We also supply wraps for tanning.
