Pre-Tan Prep

Getting ready for a big event? We recommend scheduling your spray tanning session two days beforehand to allow the spray solution time to fully develop (about 12-24 hours).

The morning of your session, make sure to scrub down, and gently exfoliate problem areas like your knees and elbows (the thicker skin there tends to absorb more tanning solution which turns these areas darker).

  • Pro Tip: We recommend putting a layer of lotion on your knees and elbows prior to your session. It’s an easy way to create a little bit of a barrier from too much spray tan solution collecting in these areas. You could also do the same for the soles of your feet and the palms of your hands for a more natural, sun-kissed look!

While we recommend that you shower and exfoliate beforehand, you shouldn’t shave for at least 12-24 hours prior to your session. The reason for this is twofold: When you shave, you’re taking off a layer of dead skin cells and making way for a fresh new layer of cells. This is ideal for baby-soft skin, but less than ideal with how DHA pigment (aka: the active ingredient in spray tanning solution) tends to react with newly exposed cells. It can cause slight irritation and redness, not unlike going without shaving cream before you shave or moisturizing afterwards. The other reason is that shaving directly before your session leaves your pores open and extra susceptible to the spray tan. When your pores close they trap the bronzing solution underneath, creating dark brown dots along your legs.

And lastly, wear loose dark clothing to your session to keep your spray tan from staining anything (although most spray tanning solutions are washable, it’s better safe than sorry).

VersaSpa Pro Heated Sunless Spa Booth

Tan Unique’s VersaSpa Pro Heated Sunless Spa Booth delivers a professional custom air brush tan with results that are consistent, personalized and flawless. Simply choose your color level (Glow, Light, Medium or Dark) and allow the booth’s Height Sensor Technology to ensure pinpoint accuracy, which means full coverage for any body type! VersaSpa also offers the option to upgrade your session with different skin care treatments and color boosts for legs or face. The booth is smart technology-enabled, and talks you through the simple process with added visual instructions.


After your spray tan, the bronzing solution will still take time to develop, so it’s important that you don’t get wet. You might want to skip showering, exercising or swimming for at least the next 6-8 hours to prevent streaking.

Our VersaSpa Pro Heated Sunless Spa Booth delivers a tan that lasts up to 5 to 7 days. To keep it for as long as possible we suggest:

  • Don’t exfoliate excessively
  • Don’t shave very often
  • Moisturize after you shower to keep the tanning solution locked in!
