Q: How Does Our Tan Work?
A: Our Tan is a unique method of spray tanning; an air compressor applies a DHA-water based solution (see below) to your skin; there is a large spray nozzle used for most of your body, and an airbrush for detail areas (fingertips, hairline, etc.). This method—and this type of equipment—allows for the most precision and the most natural-looking tan.
Q: How Is Our Tan Different Than Other Spray Tanning?
A: All spray tanning is not created equal! Ours looks great because of superior application, superior equipment, superior formulas, and superior technician training. Our application equipment uses a medical-grade air compressor that is quiet and provides a strong airflow required for a smooth and even application; all other brands of spray tanning use cheaper turbine motors—essentially a reverse vacuum cleaner (blows instead of sucks). Our solutions have been formulated with precise amounts of DHA (see below) and do not need to be “caked” on to achieve your desired darkness like other brands do. The end result is a natural, healthy-looking tan that you can feel confident wearing.
Q: What Is DHA? Is It Safe?
A: DHA is the main ingredient for the tanning process, in our sunless tanning products. It is a simple, non-toxic sugar that is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane. When applied to the body, DHA will respond to the amino acids on the outermost layer of the skin, changing its color to a tan tone that looks beautiful. It is completely safe. We also offer nasal filters for people to feel more comfortable.
Q: How Long Will Our Spray Tan Last?
A: The average result is 5 to 10 days of color. Factors such as skin type, activities, color applied and maintenance may cause results to vary.
Q: How Long Does It Take To Apply?
A: A full body session takes about 15 minutes depending on equipment settings and the technician’s technique.
Q: Can I Use This If I’m Pregnant?
A: There are no known side effects from the application of our tan. As a precaution, if you are pregnant, you should always consult with your physician or other qualified health care provider before receiving a spray tan or any beauty or skin care application.
