A micro-fine mist is hand sprayed and evenly applied over the body. This allows us to customize your tan based on your skin tone, height, weight and body shape thus eliminating overspray, streaking and the UGLY orange hands and feet syndrome that you will find from booth spray tans.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology and the Skin Cancer Foundation, the most effective and safe way to tan is by using sunless or self-tanning products that contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as the active ingredient. We also provide ear, nose and lip protection for your safety.
What is an airbrush tan?
Upon arrival you will be escorted to a private room where you will disrobe and slip into a spa gown. Barrier cream will be applied to any dry areas of your body to prevent discoloration. You will step into the tanning area where your airbrush tan will be hand applied. The entire process should take about 15 minutes. Once the session is completed you will be able to dress immediately. Voilà …you are tan!
During our intial phone consultation we will discuss your skin tone and tanning expectaions. Once an appoinment is scheduled you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to prepare your skin for the tanning session.
The following recommendations will help maximize the longevity and appearance of your spray tan:
The better moisturized your skin, better the result. This means prior to your tanning session moisturize at least twice a day and drink lots of water.
If possible, the NIGHT BEFORE your treatment please shower, exfoliate, shave and moisturize with lotion not oil. For exfoliating we recommend using exfoliating gloves and/or a mild, oil free exfoliant. Pay special attention to your legs, knees, ankles, feet, elbows and knuckles. If you have really dry skin you may apply a small amount of lotion (not oil) the morning of your tan.
Note: If you shower too close to the tanning session speckling may occur. This is when the solution pools in your pores. Try to shower at least 5 hours before your scheduled appointment.
