UV Tanning Q&A

 

 How long should I tan when I first start?

It is advisable to start with a smaller exposure time. You can then increase it gradually as you start your base tan. Once you get considerably tan from being outside and just want to maintain that color, then you can tan for a longer period of time.

What should I wear when I tan?

Tanning booths and beds are private areas in which you can wear whatever you like. If you feel more comfortable in your bikini or swimsuit then by all means wear it. You can also choose to go more natural and wear only your birthday suit since no one will see you. Many women, however, do choose to wear underwear so that they do not burn the more private parts of their anatomy. You will also be required to wear eye protection since your eyes, even when closed, can allow the light into them and cause permanent damage.

 Why should I use lotion ?

All our lotions are specifically designed for the indoor tanning industry; they contain ingredients to assist in achieving maximum tanning results. They are designed not only to maximize and accelerate great tanning results, but most importantly replace essential nutrients, minerals and lost moisture to your skin. Lotions also contain antioxidants to shield free radical damage

 Why do I need to wear eye protection?

Closing your eyelids is not adequate protection, your eyelids are too thin to stop ultraviolet light. For this reason you must wear eye protection when tanning at our salons.

.Why do some people itch after tanning indoors?

Rashes or itching occurring on the body after ultraviolet light exposure are not an indication of skin disease, but of dry skin or a photosensitive reaction. They often are caused by a combination of heat from the tanning lamps, a lack of sufficient melanin in the skin being tanned and ultraviolet light. Both irritations usually subside within several days after tanning has stopped.

How does indoor tanning exposure compare to the natural sun?

Your skin produces a tan the same way it does when you tan indoors or outdoors. It is difficult to make a simple comparison of the sun with that of modern indoor tanning equipment. The sun’s strength is dependent on several factors as well. When you are outdoors in the sun you cannot control the amount of ultraviolet light you are exposed to. Indoor tanning is a very controlled environment in which you can regulate the amount of ultraviolet light you are exposed to. You can gradually increase your exposure time to achieve the tan you desire without burning

 Why is moisturized skin important for a tan?

Healthy, moist skin will tan quicker, get darker and keep its tanned appearance longer because the melanin is produced rapidly and the skin also will not exfoliate as quickly when it is properly moisturized.

 Do I need an appointment to tan?

No appointments are required. Since our salons have more beds than the average tanning salon, you should be able to get a bed whenever you want with minimal or no waiting time.

How do I know the beds are clean?

We use FDA-approved cleaning solutions after every customer’s tanning session. The store manager will be happy to show you our cleaning logs. The solution is tested daily to ensure proper sanitizing properties exist.

How often do you change the bulbs in each bed?

We change our bulbs when they have reached 500 hours of use. We make sure our beds have the newest and hottest bulbs.
