Everything you want to know about spray tanning!
Our goal is to provide our guests with a consistent, natural-looking tan that is 100 percent customizable to individual skin type and preference. You can achieve
a natural sun-kissed glow (popular for brides) or be a
bronzed babe (going Vegas-style) in a single session.
We have state-of-the-art equipment and professional solutions that include anti-aging ingredients, Aloe and Vitamin E to nourish and hydrate your skin. The solutions do not stain, are orange-free and odourless. Our certified technicians are professional and trained to apply a flawless airbrush effect for an even spray tan without any streaks or patchiness and can blend in unwanted tan lines to even out skin tones.
We use the #1 solution in the spray tanning industry. All of our products are tested for safety and have been FDA approved for 30 years. We use a natural sugar called dihydroxyacetone (DHA) which reacts naturally with your skin cells to create a radiant golden tan every time. This new revolutionary system is ideal for individuals that would like to achieve a golden tan without the harmful effects that are caused by dangerous UV rays. The application takes approximately 30 min. and results are obtained immediately. The tan will last for 5-7 days.
Why Switch to UV FREE Tanning?
Tanning, in its most unglamourous form, is simply the body's response to skin cell damage caused by ultraviolet light. Through a chain of cause-and-effect, exposure to UVA and UVB radiation stimulates the production of melanin, the skin's pigment, in a desperate attempt to protect the skin from further damage. Unfortunately, as each layer of skin is shed, (every 2 to 3 days on average), newer cells will revert to their usual level of melanin, leaving the skin once again vulnerable to ultraviolet light.
The cycle repeats itself, resulting in damaged skin that has lost its elasticity (i.e. tough, leathery, and prematurely wrinkled), 'liver spots', and a range of skin cancer conditions from basal cell to carcinoma to melanoma. The reality is alarming - one out of every five North Americans will develop skin cancer.
For the typical tanner, the choice is simple....to go through life looking pasty-white, or to have enviable, radiant skin. For a while, tanning beds, though expensive and time-consuming, seemed like an attractive alternative, and were touted as the healthy alternative to sun tanning. Unfortunately, serious questions have now been raised as to the health risks associated with this method. There are two types of ultraviolet rays that burn the skin - UVA and UVB. Of the two, UVB is the more harmful. Tanning beds claim to screen ultraviolet light. However this claim only applies to UVA.
The Skin Cancer Foundation states that more than 23 minutes per year in a tanning bed does irrepairable harm. The radiation from tanning beds is 5 times the intensity of the noontime sun at the equator. One of the common side-effects of 'bed tanning' is the development of spider veins: as the blood in your veins actually boils, it damages vascular structure, and results in unsightly discolouration. A serious study of the hazards of ultraviolet light would lead you to be extremely cautious regarding exposure to ultraviolet light.
Answers to frequently asked questions regarding spray tanning:
What should I wear to an airbrush spray tanning session?
Wear loose fitting clothing to your tanning appointment. Allow 10 minutes drying time after your session before dressing.
How soon can I shower after an airbrush spray tan?
Allow 10-12 hours after your tanning session before showering. Ideally, the DHA application needs about 12 hours to reach its peak.
How do I maintain my airbrush spray tan?
Apply moisturizer morning and evening after your first post-tan shower. Moisturize daily thereafter. Hydrated skin is essential in maintaining a longer lasting tan.
