Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions do I need for results?

One spray tan will give you your desired results. 

 

What is DHA?

DHA is the active ingredient found in all sunless tanning products. It is a simple carbohydrate that is primarily used as an ingredient in sunless tanning products. It is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane, and by the fermentation of glycerin. DHA does not make your skin cells darker in pigmentation, but rather reacts with the proteins and amino acids found in the top layer of your skin to create a darkening effect or ‘sunless tan’.

 

How long does it take to get a spray tan?

When you use the booth you are only in it for 3 minutes so we usually recommend allowing 20 minutes for your first session so we can go over what to expect and how to get the best results. 

For the custom tan you should allow 20 to 25 minutes. 

 

How long does the spray tan last?

The booth tan should last 5 to 7 days.

The custom tan should last 7 to 10 days

Properly preparing for your spray tan will help your tan last longer and fade evenly too. 

 

What do I wear?

You can wear as much or as little as you are comfortable with. I recommend you wear a dark colored swimsuit or undergarments if you choose to wear something.   We have disposable undergarments for you to wear if you would like.  The tanning solution will wash out but in some cases might stain light colored garments or delicate fabrics. After your spray tan we recommend not wearing any tight fitting clothing, such as a bra, jeans and leggings. These can rub your tan and cause it to develop unevenly. Men must wear undergarments during their spray tanning session. 

 

 

What is the difference between the booth and the custom tan?

Well, first off the price, the booth is $30 and the custom is $45. When you are just wanting to have some color the booth is great for that, it applies the solution evenly and goes on clear. Another reason people like the booth is because of the privacy. 

 

I highly recommend a custom for special events and vacations. Although the booth gives an even spray tan most peoples skin isn't an even color all over. With the custom spray tan we can even out any areas of your skin that are lighter and also go darker on certain areas too. I also recommend a custom spray tan for a first time spray tanner that is very nervous about getting spray tan.

 

Do I still need to wear sunscreen?

YES!! You will still get a sunburn if you don't wear sunscreen.

 

 

Can I go swimming with a spray tan?

Yes, but keep in mind it will make your tan fade faster.  I recommend apply lotion before and after you go swimming. 

 

Will it rub off on my clothing?

Until you shower, you may see a little of the bronzer come off on your clothes.  The solution is water soluble and will wash out. We recommend bringing dark, loose fitting clothing to wear after your session. Important: the bronzer has been known to stain leather, suede, silk, linen or fine materials.
