FAQ

How long will my spray tan last?


Our Signature solution will last 7-12+ days with proper prep and aftercare. Our Express solution will last 5-7+ days with proper prep and aftercare. However everyones skin is different and results can vary due to how well( or not so well) you prepped and followed aftercare. Hormonal changes and some medications can also affect the outcome of your tan. I recommend a tan extend lotion to all clients to help keep your bronze vibrant and long lasting. Pick one up at your next appointment!




Can I go swimming with a spray tan?


Yes, you can go swimming but keep in mind, both chlorine and salt water can break down your tan. It is best to avoid long submersion, rinse off immediately after, always pat dry, and keep your skin moisturized.




How does a spray tan work?


The active ingredient used in all sunless solutions is Dihydroxyacetone, or DHA. This ingredient, which is naturally derived from sugar cane, reacts with the amino acids in the skin to create a browning effect on the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin. Full development of the color takes about 24 hours after application.




Can I get a spray tan if I am expecting or nursing?


All expectant or nursing mothers MUST consult with their physician before scheduling an appointment. Protectant supplies; hair cap, nose filter, eye protection, disposable panties and bras should be worn during your appointment and will be supplied by your technician. Nursing mothers should avoid breastfeeding while their tan is developing and wear a bra or nipple covering during the service this way the nipple is not exposed allowing for the infant to ingest.Keep in mind, hormonal changes caused by pregnancy could cause spray tan unevenness, light development, or no development.




What do I wear while getting sprayed?


What you wear while getting sprayed is up to you and your comfort level! Disposable undergarments will be provided to you (bandeau top, thong or brief bottom) or you can wear your own! Though the solution will wash out of most clothing- dark undergarments or an old bikini is best. Be mindful of the tan lines they will leave.




Can I get a spray tan if I am under 18?


All clients under 18 must have a parent/gaurdian signature before beginning the service.




I loved my last tan and want to get tanned again asap! How soon after my last tan can I schedule my appointment?


I told you you'd be obsessed! Before we can spray you again, your old tan MUST BE REMOVED. Any left over tan will make your new tan look patchy. Use our Tan Eraser mousse paired with our Exfoliating Mitt and it will remove the old tan like butter!




Whats the difference between the Signature vs Express Bronze?


Our Signature Solution is rinsed in 8+ hours, can be slept in without overdeveloping, and will last 7-12+ days with proper prep and care. While the Express Solution, also known as a "rapid tan", is rinsed anywhere from 1-5 hours depending on your color preference! The longer you wait, the darker it will be. This is great for those on a time crunch or those who don't like the feeling of sitting around in a spray tan. Lasts 5-7+ days with proper prep and care. Keep in mind, both solutions will take 24 hours to fully develop. Express does not mean faster color, just a faster rinse time!




Can I get a spray tan if I have a sunburn?


Nope, sorry! If you've had a sunburn in the past 4 weeks, it is best not to get a spray tan. The damaged skin can begin to peel even weeks after the initial burn resulting in a splotchy, uneven tan. I know its frustrating, but I promise you, you wont like the end result of the tan. Lather up with SPF and keep your skin protected from the sun!
