All About Spray Tans

Versa Spa Sunless Auto Bronze Spray Tan

Equipment VS Pro Sunless skin care system is the most advanced machine in a spray tanning system. It provides a premium spray tanning experience with 3 nozzles for even coverage. Our Sunless equipment has three different tanning levels made specifically to suit a wide range of client skin tones. It is important to pick the color level that is right for you. If it is too dark for your skin tone you are more likely to be unsatisfied with the results. Our solution is also made with natural ingredients to keep your skin nourished and help it absorb the solution for even and natural color. All Bikini Bottom Tanning Professionals are trained to help you select the right solution to achieve the most natural tan possible. Also, be sure to prepare for your session with proper moisturizing and exfoliation and to wait at least 6 hours before showering. Following all prep and post session instructions, in combination with our equipment’s revolutionary airbrush technology will ensure that your sunless tanning coverage is even, smooth, and perfect every time. Our spray tan fades evenly like a normal tan, no blotchy skin or chunk flakes.

Our Spray Tan machine has many options for you to choose from.

Start with a Skin Preparation spray. With no color, this spray will even out your skin tone and coat your skin with a layer of spray that will balance your skin’s pH for a more even tan.

WHY IS KEEPING SKIN MOISTURIZED ESSENTIAL TO MAINTAIN GREAT SUNLESS RESULTS?2018-05-16T03:14:05+00:00

It is important to keep skin moisturized after your Sunless session as dry, flaky skin will slough off faster and color will fade sooner. Sunless tan-extending products with a light self-tanning bronzer helps hydrate skin and maintain even, natural looking color longer.

WHAT KIND OF SPRAY TANNING MACHINE DO YOU HAVE?2018-05-16T03:20:23+00:00

We have a Versa Spa Pro Sunless Skin Care System. It is automated and does everything for you. All you have to do is turn!

CAN I WORK OUT AFTER A SUNLESS SESSION?2018-05-16T03:15:11+00:00

It is best to wait about 6 hours after your Sunless session before partaking in any strenuous activities that may cause perspiration. This will give the DHA time to fully
react with skin proteins as well as prevent streaking that could result from excessive perspiration.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY SUNLESS SESSION?2018-05-16T03:11:30+00:00

Arrive showered, shaven, free of make-up, perfume, oil, body sprays, deodorant and moisturizer for optimal results. No special clothing is required. Your Sunless session will last less than eight minutes with dry time for the application and a total of 10 to 15 minutes with prep and post preparation.

HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT AFTER MY SUNLESS SESSION BEFORE I SHOWER?2018-05-16T03:14:35+00:00

It is best to wait at least 6 hours after the sunless tan application before you shower to give the DHA time to fully react with skin proteins.

HOW MANY DAYS WILL A SUNLESS TAN LAST?2018-05-16T03:15:52+00:00

The longevity of a Sunless tan depends on the skin’s natural exfoliation process and on the skin regimen followed before and after application. On average, a sunless tan will last 4-7 days. The “life span” of a Sunless tan also depends on your skin’s natural exfoliation. The faster your skin regenerates, the faster the sunless tan will fade. The tan created by the DHA and Erythrulose affects only the top layer of the skin and will begin to fade after 4 to 5 days as the skin naturally begins to exfoliate.

WILL THE SOLUTION FROM THE SUNLESS COME OFF ON MY CLOTHES?2018-05-16T03:17:16+00:00

Some of the bronze “cosmetic tint” color may rub off on clothing or bed sheets. This is most likely to happen when you get dressed immediately after tanning. To minimize the chance of the tint transferring to clothing, we recommend that you wear loose-fitting, darker clothes after your Sunless session. The Cosmetic tint is water-soluble. Therefore, in most cases, the color will come out of clothing in the wash.

WHAT IS SUNLESS SPRAY TANNING?2018-05-16T03:19:51+00:00

Sunless spray tanning is the spray/mist application of Sunless tanning solution to your body. When applied, DHA (the active ingredient in Sunless tanning solution) reacts with the proteins in the skin’s superficial layer to form a golden brown color. Your skin begins to darken two to three hours after application and reaches its peak color within 24 hours. The color will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun.

SHOULD I MOISTURIZE BEFORE A SUNLESS SESSION?2018-05-16T03:13:10+00:00

You should use a moisturizer regularly to keep your skin hydrated and healthy, which will contribute to a more even, natural looking sunless tan. However, it is recommended NOT to apply moisturizers 2 hours prior to self tanning and 4 to 6 hours after.

HOW FREQUENTLY DO YOU RECOMMEND GOING IN FOR A SUNLESS SESSION? CAN I DO IT SEVERAL DAYS IN A ROW?2018-05-16T03:16:38+00:00

The frequency of a Sunless tanning application depends on your skin cell turn over and preference of color intensity. People with quick cell turn-overs may want to do a Sunless session every 7 days to keep color fresh, while others may only need to apply once every 10 days. We also offer a complete body moisturizer for an additional fee that helps keep your skin supple and lengthens the life of your spray tan.

CAN I DO A SUNLESS SESSION IN ADDITION TO A TANNING BED?2018-05-16T03:23:55+00:00

Absolutely! In fact, we recommend it. Sunless tanning results are phenomenal over a nice base tan. It is the best way to obtain a fast, instant and natural tan. At Bikini Bottom Tanning Salon we refer to this process as a “Cocktail Tan.” Please ask any Bikini Bottom Tanning Professional for details on our Cocktail Tan process.
