Can anyone spray tan?
Most people are suitable to tan. We suggest that pregnant women in the first trimester, those with severe asthma or with very sensitive skin refrain from tanning or consult a physician before tanning.
However, we require the signature of the parent or guardian for those under the age of 18. Also, for those under the age of 18, we require that they are clothed in either swim trunks for males or bikinis for females (or equivalent clothing). Men must wear a bottom at all times.
What if I do not Tan in the Sun - Will I still tan?
Yes! Your Tan was made especially for you! We are able to customize our tanning formula to work with your specific skin tone to ensure you will have a Sun Kissed glow, and not a rusty unnatural looking tan... even on the fairest of skin tones.
How long will my Tan Last?
Much like a fingerprint, each persons skin is unique. Many factors can influence how long your tan will last. Given the science how a sunless tan works, ALL sunless tans will usually last an average of 7 days. For maximum staying power, we recommend you purchase our Tan Extender Lotion. To maintain your tan year-round, we recommend our Monthly Tanning Membership.
How long will my Appointment Last?
Please plan on a total of 30 minutes for your first appointment.
Subsequent appointments will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
What should I wear to my Appointment?
During your spray tan, you are welcome to wear a swimsuit, underwear, or any other garments that you wish. Many of our female clients chose to wear only a small pair of panties to minimize tan lines. Male clients must wear a dark color swimsuit, shorts or full coverage briefs. You may want to consider wearing dark colors, as the initial cosmetic bronzer can rub off on clothing; however, it will easily wash out of most clothing, except nylon, spandex, and silk. After your appointment, you should wear very loose fitting clothing that does not "rub" or fit tightly on the body. Please wear flip-flop shoes or similar shoes to minimize rubbing on the feet.
How should I prepare for my Tan?
Please see our Tan Prep page for detailed tips on preparing your skin for the most effective, longest lasting tan.
How does it work?
Sunless tan work with the outer layer of the skin only by using a colorless sugar called dihydroxyacetone (or DHA). DHA reacts with the top layer of your skin to transform it to a golden bronze color. DHA has been approved by the FDA for use in the cosmetic and sunless tanning industry for years.
What is DHA?
DHA stands for Dihydroxyacetone, derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane, its been around since the 60s and approved by the FDA.
Do I Need to Wear Sunscreen after a Tan?
Yes. Your Tan is only a cosmetic tan. It contains no sunscreens, and will not protect you from the suns UVA and UVB rays.
