How long does a spray tan last?

If you take the proper steps to prepare, your spray tan will look really good up to a week. If you use one of our post lotions after your spray tan it can last up to 10-12 days.

Is spray tanning safe? 

Yes, it’s perfectly safe.  Sunless tans work with the outer layer of the skin only by using a colorless sugar called dihydroxyacetone (or DHA).  DHA reacts with the top layer of your skin to transform it to a golden bronze color.  DHA has been approved by the FDA for use in the cosmetic and sunless tanning industry for years.

Do I need to wear sunscreen after a spray tan?

Yes.  A spray tan is only a cosmetic tan. It contains no sunscreens, and will not protect you from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.

What if I do not tan in the sun? Can I still be sprayed?

Yes!  A spray tan works with any type of skin tone!

Will I have a bad smell after my spray?

Our high-end tanning solutions have a wonderful smell, unlike most other sunless tanning methods.

How long will my spray tan appointment last?

Your appointment will be approximately 20-30 minutes.

What should I wear to my spray appointment?

During your spray tan, you are welcome to wear a swimsuit, underwear, or any other garments that you wish.

Many of our female clients chose to wear only a small pair of panties to minimize irregularities.  Male clients must wear a dark color swimsuit, shorts or full coverage briefs.  You may want to consider wearing dark colors, as the initial cosmetic bronzer can rub off on clothing; however, it will easily wash out of most clothing, except nylon, spandex, and silk.

After your appointment, you should wear very loose fitting clothing that does not “rub” or fit tightly on the body.  Please wear flip-flip shoes or similar shoes to minimize rubbing on the feet.

I am a mom, a wife, and I have a full time career…I do not have time to visit your salon. Do you offer in-home or on-location services?

Absolutely!  Give us a call at 208-664-6564 to find out more.

I would like to book a Tan Party… but how can I be sure that the airbrush tanning spray will not get all over my home?

We have special equipment designed for in-home use.  We will bring a portable airbrush unit, along with a convenient pop-up tent.  The pop-up tent is compact and fits into almost any space.  It has 3 walls, a top, and bottom to ensure the spray does not travel beyond the tent walls into your home.  Or, if you wish, shower enclosures make a great place to tan….just turn on the water and any spray washes right down the drain!

What level of tanning beds do you offer?

  • Level 5 bed: 1% UVB

What is the difference between and accelerator, bronzer, or tingle?

  • An accelerator contains a large amount of moisturizers that allow the skin to tan more quickly and retain your color for a longer time. Once you build up a good base tan you can try a more intense bronzer or tingle lotion to give you that extra boost.
  • A bronzer contains DHA which gives you an instant tan, so you achieve that sunkissed look immediately, and you continue to darken for hours after your session.
  • A tingle increases blood flow and brings oxygen to the cells in your skin. This process of oxygenation will improve your tanning results. When you use these products you will experience a mild tingling, reddening and warming sensation on the skin’s surface.

Why should I use a tanning lotion?

Without using a tanning lotion your body does not actually start accepting the UV rays for the first 6-8 minutes. When you use a tanning lotion your body starts accepting the rays within the first 30-60 seconds increasing your tan by 60%.

How far in advance do I need to make an appointment?

We recommend calling in 24 hours in advance in order to guarantee you a spot however we do not have a specific time frame.

Do you accept walk-ins?

Yes, we are always accepting walk-ins. However, this does not guarantee that a bed will be available.
