UV Tanning Beds

A sunburn is the enemy of healthy skin, and a sun tan is what protects your skin form sunburn. For many people, it may be difficult to achieve a tan without burning, which is why we have trained technicians who can assist you by assessing your skin type and recommending the proper exposure and skin care products to meet your needs. These needs are assessed by the current condition of your skin and exposure history, including: fairness, texture, past sunburns and skin abnormalities or conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Our one on one service will ensure that you are well equipped with all the knowledge you need to know to continue to tan safely and to continue to maintain that healthy glow.

UV Tanning Tips/Instructions

You may remove all clothing, or whatever is most comfortable for you. You may prefer no tan lines at all!

  • All cosmetics and contact lenses should be removed.
  • Apply only those lotions provided by your salon, as they are designed to be used in a sun bed.
  • Always wear protective eyewear. Your eyes can not protect themselves from UV rays even when closed, and being exposed to them may cause burning and even blindness.
  • Once you are undressed and your eyewear is on, climb in and enjoy! (the timer will be set by the technician)
  • While tanning lay back, relax, listen to music, or even sleep if you like. The bed will turn off automatically.

Differing UV Light

There are three types of ultraviolet light emitted from the sun. Only two are emitted from a tanning bed. The Sun emits UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C light. UV-C rays are very dangerous and can cause extreme damage to your skin. This is the reason why scientists are apprehensive about the depletion of the Ozone layer, because that is what filters out most of the UV-C light keeping it from harming us. Tanning beds do not emit UV-C rays. The two types emitted from tanni ng beds are UV-A and UV-B. UV-B rays can still cause burning if your skin is over exposed, though UV-B rays also set off positive responses in your skin, like the stimulation of Vitamin D-3 production. This vitamin is used in our bodies essentially to regulate calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus in our bodies. UV-B increases the natural Sun Protection Factor (SPF), along with the pigmentation of the skin. UV-B is always taken in small doses (approx 3-5% depending on the tanning bed) as to avoid overexposure. UV-A rays are the best rays for your skin out of the three mentioned. This ray is responsible for darkening the pigment in our skin. UV-A does not cause burning, except in extreme overexposure or sensitivity. The majority of rays emitted from a tanning bed are UV-A rays (95-97%).

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is the Australian Gold® Laser SPRAYTANS ™ System tan applied?

    The Australian Gold® Laser SPRAYTANS ™ System uses a patented laser guide to deliver a smooth, gorgeous, perfectly even tan.

  • Why is the laser important?

    Independent studies, including the EPA, have proven that our laser guide applicator not only sprays more accurately, but also uses less product. This results in lower costs and better results.

  • Will my tan be instant?

    Australian Gold® Laser SPRAYTANS ™ System uses an instant bronzing formula for immediate results.

  • How long do I have to wait afterwards before I can take a shower?

    For best results, we recommend that you allow the solution to be absorbed into the skin for a minimum of 5 hours.

  • Will my skin be orange like other self-tanning products?

    No. Through scientifically advanced pH testing, our solution is uniquely formulated for virtually eliminate the “oranging” effects associated with most other self-tanning products.

  • Will the spray discolour my hair or clothes?

    The solution does not absorb into hair, but you may choose to wear a cap we provide. The solution contains a bronzer and there is a chance that there will be some transfer from your skin to your clothes. The bronzer however, is aloe vera based and will wash off most fabrics.

  • What about allergic reactions?

    A patch test may be done at no charge if you are not sure if you will be allergic to the solution. If you are allergic to other sunless tanning products or have hypersensitive skin, we recommend checking with your physician before using the products.

  • Will my DHA tan proctect me from the sun?

    No. You should always wear sunscreen when outdoors.
