1.

WHAT IS UV-FREE TANNING?

UV-free tanning is accomplished by having a self tanner sprayed evenly on the body. It is great when you need a tan quick or if you have a hard time tanning naturally.


2.

 HOW DOES UV-FREE TANNING WORK?

Our products contains an FDA-approved cosmetic ingredient called Dihydroxyacetone (or DHA). DHA works by reacting with the keratin protein in the top layer of your skin. The DHA in our UV-free solution is derived from a vegetable source (such as sugar beets or sugar cane). The DHA that is sprayed onto your skin reacts with the proteins to create a tan. The tan begins to appear within a few hours and is complete after about 8 hours. The solution contains a walnut and carmel extract combination that provides an immediate natural bronze tan. This instant coloring agent washes off with a shower leaving the actual tan that has been created by the DHA.


3.

WHAT MAKES THIS BETTER THAN SELF TANNING LOTIONS?

The solution is sprayed evenly on the body. With a lotion it is likely that to much may be applied or spots may be missing completely.


4.

WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

The darker you tan naturally, the darker you will tan with the airbrush tanning system. The reaction looks natural, as if from the sun.


5.

WHY USE UV-FREE TANNING?

-You can get a UV-free tan even if you can’t get a real tan.
-UV-free tans are completely safe.
-UV-free tanning products are better now than they have ever been.
-UV-free tans take less time than a real tan; you can have a tan tomorrow!
-You can touch up tan lines and those hard to get tanning spots.


6.

HOW LONG WILL MY UV-FREE TAN LAST?

Your UV-free tan can last up to 14 days depending on your body itself. Keeping your skin moisturized with a professional quality moisturizer will double the length of your tan.


7.

HOW WILL THE SESSION BE PREFORMED AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ?

The session will be preformed in a private room where the solution will be sprayed over you by another person. When you come in our fully trained staff will explain the procedure step by step. The total time you will need for the session is about 15-20 minutes.


8.

WHAT DO I WEAR FOR MY UV-FREE TANNING SESSION?

You undress to your comfort level.


9.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY TANNING SESSION?

For the maximum results:
-Shower and exfoliate before your session. Shaving should be done prior to tanning.
- MAKE SURE your skin is free of perfumes, lotions, deodorants or any product on the skin that would create a barrier. Your skin MUST be completely clean and dry.
-MAKE SURE there is no soap residue left on your body. We suggest you rub your body with a wet washcloth or sponge without soap before getting out of the shower.

TIPS

-Wear dark loose fitting clothing and shoes, and limit physical activity for several hours following your session. Perspiration may adversely affect the results of the tan.
-DHA reacts with wool, nylon, and silk. You should not wear these fabrics during or after your tanning session.
-Wait at least 8-12 hours after your session before showering. The longer the better.


10.

IS UV-FREE TANNING RECOMMENDED FOR PREGNANT WOMEN OR NURSING MOTHERS?

Although there is no evidence that any of the ingredients in our tanning solution would cause a problem, we advise you to speak to your doctor before having this done.
