Spray tan


What should I do before my spray tan session?

You should take a thorough shower and shave before your session. Exfoliation invigorates the skin which is better for absorbing the color treatment of the sunless spray tan solution.

Showering also cleans your skin of any make-up, deodorant, oils, or body lotions – all of which create a barrier between the skin and the sunless tanning solution.Pro Tip: Make sure to bring dark, loose fitting clothing to wear after your session! Restrictive clothes can cut streaky tan lines into your skin. And the DHA-based solution of the spray tan may stain some lighter colored fabrics.

How long will my spray tan last?

Our tanning salon uses the highly advanced VersaSpa Pro Sunless Tanning Booth which delivers a tan that lasts up to 5 to 7 days.

How long does it take?

The entire session should take less than 10 minutes, depending on the customizable settings you’ve chosen in the VersaSpa. Illustrations on what to do are posted and a programed voice will talk you through each stage of the process.

Should I cover my hair?

You don’t have to! Some people wear shower caps to keep the spray treatment out of their hair. Sunless tanning solution doesn’t color hair follicles so your hair is safe either way. Just keep it up and away from blocking any part of your skin from the spray.

Should I moisturize after using a spray tanning booth?

No, it’s recommended that you hold off on using any kind of moisturizer at least 3 hours prior to your session and 6 hours after for best results. Most body lotions interfere with the reaction of DHA (the active ingredient in spray tanning solution) with your skin during the tanning process. And applying moisturizer too soon afterwards could cause some pretty unsightly streaks in your tan.

VersaSpa offers a variety of moisturizing skin treatments that don’t interfere with your spray tan! Such as: Pre-Sunless pH Balancing Skin Prep Treatment, Post-Sunless Super Hydrating Moisturizer Treatment, and Sunless Tanning Bronzing Treatments (Glow, Light, Medium or Dark).

Can I shower after my session?

No. You should wait at least 8 hours after a spray tanning session before showering to give your tan a chance to fully develop.

Will a spray tan turn me orange?

Absolutely not! Cheap chemicals are the culprit for orange-tinged skin! VersaSpa uses strictly organic-based ingredients designed to work with the natural amino acids in your skin. This produces a bronzing effect that causes your natural skin tone to deepen into a darker shade.

Is spray tanning recommended for people with sensitive skin?

Yes! VersaSpa is safe for all skin types. Especially if you have a hard time tanning out in the sun or in UV tanning beds.

When will I start to see results?

You’ll start to see results in just a few hours. Although, your tan won’t be fully developed until 12-24 hours after your session.

What are some advantages of spray tanning versus UV tanning?

Spray tanning means avoiding some of the negative side effects that come with sun tanning or using tanning beds! When you use sunless spray tan you get beautifully bronzed skin without any sunburns, wrinkles, or freckles!

Also, it’s cost effective! The results of just one session of spray tanning is the color equivalent of 6 UV tanning bed sessions. How’s that for a bargain?
