What is airbrush tanning?
Airbrush tanning is body airbrushing using an FDA approved DHA (dihydroxyacetone). It is the same ingredient in all of the safe self tanning products. Recently technology has developed very realistic looking color with self tanners.
The airbrush allows for practically flawless application of a high quality sunless tanner. The natural looking results are largely due to the airbrush itself. It is applied evenly and streak free using this method and can be layered and blended much better than possible by hand.
How does airbrush tanning work?
Very simply, the DHA reacts with your proteins and amino acids in your skin to bring out your own color. It takes approximately 6 hours for the reaction to be complete, but you should wait 8 hours before showering.
How long does the airbrush tan last?
The length of your tan is determined by several factors:
~ your skin type: the drier your skin, the faster your tan will tend to fade, so moisturize well.
~ only the outermost layer of skin is "tanned". As the skin layer is lost, so is the tan. Wear on your airbrush tan comes from rubbing, soaking in water, long showers, tight fitting clothing or swimming in chlorinated pools.
~Over exfoliating after your tanning application. Gentle cleansing with a wash cloth is recommended until just before your next application when a thorough scrub is desired.
Generally, the airbrush should last 7-10 days.
How long should I allow for treatment?
The application takes 15-20 minutes.
What should I do to prepare for the treatment?
1. The night before your tanning session, exfoliate your entire body and shave.
2. Avoid moisturizers, oils and deodorants as these can interfere with the tanning solution. Have your face free of cosmetics.
3. Make sure you do any activities, such as exercising, prior to being airbrushed.
4. On the day of your appointment, wear loose clothing and shoes.
Is an appointment necessary?
Yes, an appointment is necessary as technicians are not there everyday.
