Have you always wanted that sleek summer tan but were too afraid to use tanning beds? Well now you have the option to use our NEW Airbrush Tanning ! Trained in spray tanning, all employees are female: Angie, Kelcie, Susan, Kristine, and Stacy. We ask that you do any other service such as Pedicures/Manicures/Facials/Massages before your spray tan. We also recommend that you bring a towel to sit on in the car afterwards and that you wear flip flops or open toe shoes for after the spray tan.
what you need to know
Preparing for your sunless Tan: Any waxing and shaving should be done 24 hours prior to spray. We also ask that you exfoliate, which removes dead skin cells and prolongs the tan, 24 hours before to make spray tan last as long as possible. Avoid wearing any makeup, lotions, deodorants, and skin care products.
How long does the service take? Could take anywhere between 15-30 minutes depending on what selection you pick.
How long does it last? Lasts anywhere between 5-7 Days, depending on cell coverage.
What do I wear while getting my spray tan ? Men and Women may wear a garment of their choice like swimsuit or underwear, or whatever they feel most comfortable in. Face to Face will also have undergarments for spray tanning provided for you as well. There will be a tan line from any clothing left on. We recommend that whatever you are spraying in is old or dark colored. Most color will wash out but there is no guarantee. Ladies may also want to bring a pony tail holder for your convenience.
Aftercare: We also suggest that you leave in loose or dark clothing. Do not shower or swim for 8 hours. During your first shower you will see the bronzer rinsing off, that is completely normal. Moisturizing is important to help maintain the tan. We also guarantee free touch ups within 24 hours (this does not include full body spray). Sunless Spray Tan is NOT a sunscreen. ALWAYS USE SUNSCREEN FOR UV PROTECTION.
how does sunless spray tan work?
The skin is made up of two main layers: the epidermis on the outside and the dermis on the inside. Whether you are talking about sun tanning or self-tanning, the epidermis is where the action occurs. The epidermis is also made up of layers. The deepest layer of the epidermis, call the stratum basale, is affected during the sun tanning. The statum corneum is the outermost layer of the epidermis – it is this layer that is affected by most sunless-tanning.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the most effective products available are sunless or self-tanning lotions that contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as the active ingredient. DHA is a colorless sugar that interacts with the dead cells located in the stratum corneum of the epidermis. As the sugar interacts with the dead skin cells, a color change occurs. This changes usually lasts about 5 to 7 days from the initial application.
Every day, millions of dead skin cells are sloughed off or worn away from the surface of the skin. In fact, every 35 to 45 days, you have an entirely new epidermis. This is why tans from sunless – will gradually fade – as the dead skin cells are worn away, so is your tan. For this reason, we suggest that you schedule the sunless treatment every five days to maintain the “tan”.
The bronzer that you see immediately is our temporary bronzing color. It gives the instant gratification tan. Our bronzing color coverage shows how even the DHA tan will be. It is a part of the same coverage. The Suntan includes the ingredient of DHA and selected extracts and oils, which create the long-lasting tan. The DHA phase will develop within a few hours into a tan that is unique to each person. When you shower after 8 hours the temporary color will come off but the tan will remain. The tanner continues to develop slightly over the next 24 hours and last 7 days or more depending on hydration, exfoliation and natural sweating which varies from person to person.
