Why Sunless Tanning?
For decades we've become increasingly aware of the damaging effects on our skin from the over-exposure of the sun. As a result, more people are opting for the safe and effective option of UV FREE sunless tanning. In under 15 minutes you can have a safe and beautiful tan, achieving the same results as weeks in the sun without the aging effects or risk of skin cancer. Sunless tanning can be applied to fair skin as well as darker skin tones with wonderful results. Sunless tanning is safe for all ages.
What is Airbrush Spray Tanning?
DHA solution is sprayed from a spray gun by a trained professional that will customize the perfect color for your skin type. DHA is a by-product of sugar cane. 100% natural and approved by the FDA and the Skin Cancer Foundation. Unlike the classic self tanning lotions, our solution does not leave you orange or streaky.
Preparing for your spray tan application
Shower with the Norvell sunless exfoliator the day before your appointment. Moisturize with a NON-oily lotion if needed. Avoid applying deodorant or colognes until after your spray tan. If you are having a pedicure, manicure, waxing service done, two days prior to receiving a spray tan is best.
What do I wear for my tan session?
Arrive in dark loose fitting clothing that you will also wear home. While being sprayed you can wear a swim suit, under garments, shorts, or your birthday suit. We also have disposable under garments. Whatever makes you feel comfortable. Step into the spray booth and within minutes you will come out with an instant tan that will develop into a richer tan within the next 8 hours. We spray all ages & shapes.
After your session.
Wear your loose fitting clothing and sandals home. Immediately after a spray tan, avoid exercising or activity that cause excessive perspiring, excessive washing of hands, and exposure to water for 8 hours. DO NOT shower for 6-8 hours after being sprayed. Body washes are best to use. Do not use loofas or harsh scrubs while you have a spray tan. We recommend our PH balance Cleanser. Avoid baths and long hot showers. If going in a pool, ocean or hot tub, apply a waterproof sunscreen. It will seal your tan in, so it won't fade as quickly from the salt water or chlorine. Moisturing is the key to maximize the life of your tan. Use a non-alcohol based lotion. We recommend our Pro-Long moisturizer with a hint of DHA for best results.
Products to Avoid after a spray
Hair removing lotions, Retin-A and Salicylic acid, acne products, wax depilatories, facial masks, toners or witch hazel, oils, pore strips and certain medications that are applied to the skin.
Spray tans last on the average of 1 week. Additional sprays can be done at anytime, depending on how dark you desire. Consult with your technician for best result.
As of June 30th, 2016 we became a UV FREE Tanning Facility.
