UV TANNING FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A few of the most commonly asked questions about our UV tanning services. If you have additional questions please reach out to one of Modern Tan Spa's staff members.

Yes, to both! As a matter of fact, before you go to a tanning salon, be sure to exfoliate well and don’t apply any lotions or makeup to your skin. This helps the tanning lotion to soak in better thus helping you to get a better all-around tan!Once your tanning session is completed, it would probably feel great to wash that lotion off, and you should, unless it has a bronzer in it. Bronzers need to be left on for a few hours after your tanning session in order for you to reap the full benefits of the bronzer!

Yes! Even if you closed your eyes in the tanning bed, the rays can still penetrate your eyelids and cause damage to your eyes! The goggles may look silly, but they tend to be small with minimal coverage to it’s likely that if you can even tan there, it won’t appear as though you have raccoon eyes. 

No. When using a tanning bed, you should always stick with tanning lotions specifically made for tanning beds. Using sunscreen will defeat your purpose of using a tanning bed, and the oils from sunscreens can cause damage to the surface of the tanning bed itself. Stick with products made for indoor tanning.

Not necessarily. The skin needs a few tanning sessions to allow the skin to oxidize its melanin, darken and produce a tan. This process cannot be rushed. Your tan will begin to deepen within 3-5 sessions, depending upon the amount of melanin within your skin. Consider adding a custom airbrush to your uv sessions to achieve a darker appearance more quickly.

In order to build a tan, tan regularly. Don’t let too much time go by between visits, or your tan will begin to fade. It is suggested that you wait 48 hours in between each session to allow your tan to fully develop in between visits. You can build up your tan by gradually increasing indoor tan-time and tanning two to three times a week. Once you have a tan, you can maintain it by tanning one or two times a week.

SPRAY TANNING FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A few of the most commonly asked questions about sunless spray tanning. If you have additional questions please reach out to one of Modern Tan Spa's staff members.

Exfoliate skin at least 3-6 hours before your sunless session to smooth skin for even tanning results. Spend a little extra time on dry area such as knees, elbows, feet, and hands. Proper exfoliation is the key to a better spray tan. Please remove any make-up prior to your sunless tan.

You should shave at least 3-6 hours before your sunless spray tanning session. Please do not use shaving lotion. It is better to utilize only soap. Waxing should be completed 1-2 days before your sunless tanning session.

The process takes about 12-15 minutes and you’re able to make specialized requests. Some individuals may want their entire body airbrushed or just certain body parts, such as legs and arms.

Make sure you do not exfoliate skin for at least 48 hours after your sunless spray tanning application. However, when you do exfoliate, please do so gently and evenly.

You should wait at least 8 to 12 hours after application before you shower. This will allow time for the self-tanning reaction to occur on the skin. If you need to shower sooner please let your airbrush technician know before your session.
