Spray Tan FAQ



What is Airbrush Tanning?

Airbrush Tanning is the latest and fastest growing service in the tanning industry. We will take you to a private room, and airbrush/spray you with a spray containing DHA which is a sugar cane based color. In less than 15 minutes, you will walk out with a beautiful, golden brown tan!!

Is your solution organic?


*Organic DHA

*100% Vegan (Approved by the PETA foundation)

*Aloe based which leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturized.

*Made from only naturally derived ingredients

*Paraben free, erythrulose free and fragrance-free

How is this different from the Mystic or Versaspa Booth/Machine?

This is an actual person applying the spray tan , so you will not have any missed areas or blotchiness. You will not need to wear footies or barrier cream because it is being applied precisely on the body, not randomly as with the booth. This results in a flawless tan with out orange, spots, or stripes like the booth. 

Is DHA safe?

Absolutely! It has been approved by the FDA and is used in many of the bronzing tanning lotions. It is also safe for pregnant women, however we do request that you get approval from your Doctor.

How Does It Work?

When sprayed on the skin, it activates itself through the body's temperature by absorbing to the keratin proteins and then activated by body heat, which causes a chemical reaction that changes the color of the skin to give you a "suntan". 

How Long Does the Tan Last?

Average time is 7-12 days. The length of the tan is determined by the skin type and also how you take care of it. Dry skin and rubbing on the skin will shorten the life of the tan. As you lose the skin layer, you will lose your tan. This comes from showers and tight clothes. The more abrasive you are to your skin, the sooner you will lose your tan.

How Can I Make It Last Longer?

*Take Showers, instead of baths.  

*Do not use a rag or a loofah, instead use your hand and a shower gel.  

*Let your tan set in as long as possible before you take the first shower.

*Use our Xtreme Xtend lotion to keep it moisturized and replenished with bronzers.

*Refrain from wearing jeans. 

Will the Spray Tan rub off on my clothes?

The spray tan contains a cosmetic bronzer that can rub off on clothes and sheets. Since it is water soluable, it generally washes out of everything. (You can use Spray & Wash or Shout just to be safe). If you do not want any of the bronzer to rub off, we do offer a clear tanning solution that does not contain a cosmetic bronzer. This sprays on clear and you will see the tan as it begins to develop, instead of immediately, like you will with the bronze solutions. The clear solution is great for people getting married or who have fittings who do not want to take a chance on getting bronzer on their dress or clothes.

What if I can't wait until the next day to shower?

If you are not able to sleep in it, we recommend the express tan. The express tan is a special formula but it MUST be washed off in 2 hours. 

When should I get my tan? 

We recommend doing your tan 2 days before an event.
