How does a ‘Sunless’ Spray Tanning session deliver the perfect tan-colour?
Spray tan booth uses a spray on process designed to deliver a customized sunless tanning application to each person based on body size, skin type and desired colour. The MagneTan technology with sweeping air brush motion evenly attracts micro-mist particles to every surface on the body.
Inside the spray room, you will disrobe and apply barrier cream to appropriate areas and put on hair cap (optional disposable Sole Protectors and nose piece available). Customers may tan without covering their hair. The solution does not penetrate the hair follicle but may discolor light/gray hair slightly.
With the push of a button the session begins with a fine mist being sprayed through several nozzles for just seconds! Once done spraying, you will gently towel off. In just 8 hours, you will see a quick natural-looking tan that continues to darken through the day. If a cosmetic bronzing solution is used, you will see the bronze result in less than 60 seconds!
How long do I have to wait before I shower?
We recommend that customers wait a minimum of 8 hours before showering to give the active ingredient, DHA, enough time to fully set. When you shower, you may notice the cosmetic bronzer washing off but the DHA will remain and continue to create the bronze tan colour.
How long will my colour last?
Your colour will last approximately 5-7 days. Your color is not a real tan and will not provide any sun protection like a real tan may provide. Always wear on SPF when tanning outdoor especially during the hours from 10am to 2 pm.
Will the solution turn me orange?
No! In the past, self-tanners gave customers an unnatural orange glow and caused streaking. Most of these results were caused by improper or ineffective application. Unnatural dark spots may also appear in dry or tick skin areas such as elbows and knuckles. Today’s advanced spray tanning solutions and equipment provide a much more even application which practically eliminates the orange look and streaking.
What do I wear?
Automated booth means you will have privacy whilst tanning. Many people don’t wear anything. You may wear a swim suit or undergarment if you prefer. The cosmetic bronzers in spray solutions are water soluble. After the session is over, and you are dry, loose clothing is recommended to be warn out, it will rub less against your skin.
Will the spray solution hurt my eyes?
No, there is nothing in the mist that will harm your eyes. The solutions are tested for customer safety. We recommend keeping your eyes closed during the spray session.
Will "Sunless" Spray Tanning make my skin have an unpleasant smell?
Sunless solutions have made a lot off advancements in the area; many solutions are scented and smell very pleasant when applied. Some customer have commented that they have noticed a “starchy” smell on their skin; if so, this is due to the DHA chemical reaction with the protein cells in one`s skin-a natural reaction. The smell dissipates and is usually not noticeable to others around them.
Are there ways to enhance the "Sunless" results?
Yes, we recommend that you shower and exfoliate prior to using the spray tan (optional Exfoliating Misty available) stay away from using moisturisers/fragrances just prior to your session.
If I spray tan, can I tan in tanning beds on the same day?
Yes, in fact some customers have found that tanning with UV rays and spray tanning provides an overall better looking tan. If customer desires to do this, we recommend that they tan in a tanning unit first (without lotion) and then spray tan.
Because I have fair skin, I have never been able to tan before. Will a "Sunless" spray tan give me a tan?
"Sunless" spray tan will give you the desired colour you are looking for a bit; it will not give you a real tan. A real tan is a natural process involving the skin which when exposed to UV light will produce melanin which in turn produces pigment in the skin – known as a tan.
Is "Sunless" spray tanning safer than tanning indoors?
A "Sunless" spray tan does not involve UV light thus; it can be regarded as safer. However, there are a lot of known health benefits for the human body involving moderate exposure to UV light.
Post Spray-Application Care?
For the first 8 hours following sunless tanning, it is critical that customers avoid any activity that could interfere with the sunless reaction on their skin, including bathing, moisturizing, swimming or other physical activity that could cause excessive perspiration.
