Frequently Asked Questions
A trained Technician will customize the all-natural solution-based sunless airbrush tanning formula to your specific skin type providing you with a natural looking tan for your coloring.
The customized tanning formula is airbrushed onto your body and actually creates the same reaction in your skin as the sun does, but without any of the skin damage or harmful UV rays.
Because our all-natural solutions do not contain dyes, the results of your airbrush tanning session are very natural looking. Your tan will be customized to your skin type so that you will not experience the orange discoloration that you may have experienced in the past from other sunless tanning products.
DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) is the active ingredient in our all-natural solutions, and has been approved by the FDA for over 30 years. The sunless airbrush tanning application is safe, effective and takes as little as 10 minutes from start to finish. The solution takes 6-8 hours to fully develop and your tan will darken during this time.
The tanning solution is airbrushed onto the skin in a fine mist, quickly dries and contains no permanent dyes. The all-natural tanning solution is water based and WILL NOT dye any clothing that it may contact. It washes easily out of clothing and other materials; it only reacts to human skin. Once your tan is fully developed and you have showered, your tan is set and it will not rub off on your clothes.
The length of time you will enjoy your tan depends on various factors. The primary factor is how well you typically hold a natural tan along with how hydrated you keep your skin. On the average, most clients enjoy their tan for about 5-10 days before it has fully, naturally faded. The desired depth of color will determine how often you need to have it redone. As with any tan, the more you moisturize, the longer you will keep your tan.

Sunless tanners contain DHA (dihydroxyacetone) which reacts with the amino acids in the top (dead) layer of skin. DHA reacts with amino acids to make bronze-colored melaninoids.
Sunless tanners are great for people with rosacea who want to hide the pink and red splotches caused by a flare-up. It is also a miracle worker for those with vitiligo, although they may need to tan as often as every other day, depending on skin color. Scars – if they get any color at all, it’s usually light. The newer the scar, the less tanner it will absorb. Old stretch marks will be covered by airbrush tanning. Newer ones won’t as much, but as they age and heal, they will disappear under your airbrush tan.
According to the American Association of Dermatology, over one million people visit some form of tanning bed each day, despite all warnings about the link of UV rays (natural and artificial) to the development of skin cancer. Half of all new cancer cases are skin cancer. There are more than one million new cases of skin cancer every year. The cases of Melanoma (the non-treatable form of skin cancer) have more than tripled among Caucasians from 1980 to 2002. In addition to the clear and present danger of cancer, there is also wrinkling, sun poisoning and communicably transmitted diseases from unclean, unsterile tanning beds.
