Airbrush Tanning

 

Airbrush tanning is the process of applying a micro-fine mist of tanning solution to your body using a spray gun or HVLP (high volume, low pressure) system. The solution goes on smoothly without streaking. This method is different from spray booths, as it is applied by hand to your body through our trained technicians. Airbrush tanning gives you a healthy glow without the damage associated with UVrays.  The tanning solution naturally changes the color of the body’s existing dead layer of skin cells and reacts to the proteins in the outermost layer of the skin. Sunless tanning is purely topical and is not absorbed into the body. The amino acids in the skin will respond naturally to the DHA and other complementary ingredients in the tanning formula to produce the most beautiful sunless tan you’ve ever seen.  The main ingredient in the sunless tanning product is known as dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA is a simple nontoxic sugar. It is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane. DHA is FDA approved

The average result is 5 to 10 days, but results will vary based on your skin type, activity levels, skin care regimen, rate of natural exfoliation, pre-tan maintenance and post-tan maintenance. Airbrush tans will fade just as natural suntans do because of skin cell replacement.

Some sunless products contain an immediate cosmetic bronzer which shows an immediate tan after being sprayed.  This color is not permanent and will wash off with the first shower.  However, after the shower you will see a different tan which was developed by the self tanning solution (approximately 6 - 10 hours later depending on the solution being used).

I started looking into alternative ways to achieve a healthy glow without the risk of further skin damage and potentially skin cancer. Orange skin and smelly solutions were not an option for me.

I grew up on the beaches of Southern California and exposure to the sun was a way of life.  My dermatologist told me I needed to stay out of the sun, sun damage had already occurred and eventually turned into skin cancer.  Airbrush Spray Tanning made the most sense and I decided to start my own company after researching the variety of quality products available on the market. I strive to create a calming ambiance the moment you walk through our door. We have created a comfortable and relaxing space where the focus is on you.
