CUSTOM AIRBRUSH SPRAY TANNING FAQ’S.
Q: How does a custom spray tan work?
A: DHA reacts with the skin’s amino acids resulting in a “tan” similar to that of the sun.
Q: How light or dark can I get from a spray tan?
A: The darker you tan naturally, the darker you will tan with a spray tan. We can customize a shade for your skin tone ranging from light to dark.
Q: How long will my tan last?
A: Your spray tan should last 5-10 days, depending on skin type and aftercare.
Q: What happens if I have allergies?
A: All ingredients used are intended for cosmetic use and generally regarded as safe. Very few individuals experience allergy symptoms or develop a skin reaction to the ingredients in the tan solution. If this occurs, shower, discontinue use, and contact a physician. Some medications containing hormones or antibiotics can alter your tan.
Q: Does it take multiple sessions to build the tan?
A: The spray tan is instant and you will see the results immediately. Be advised we do NOT advise being sprayed for photographic sessions, weddings, etc. unless you have had a trial spray tan with us.
Q: Does spray tanning protect me from a sunburn?
A: This product does not contain sunscreen or protect against sunburn. Repeated sun exposure may cause skin aging, skin cancer and other harmful effects to the skin.
Q: What do I wear during a spray tan?
A: Whatever you are comfortable wearing. Most people don’t wear anything because they do not want tan lines. Some people wear an old swimsuit or underwear.
Q: Is this a booth or does someone spray me?
A: We have airbrush technicians that customize each tan and color. They will be using an airbrush to spray you.
Q: What is the after care?
A: Please see maintenance instructions below. Hot tub and pool exposure may decrease length of your tan.
- AVOID sweating immediately following tan session.
- AVOID skin contact with water for at least four hours.
- AVOID swimming and spas for 24 hours.
- WAIT 10-16 hours after a Custom Airbrush Tan before showering.
