Frequently Asked Questions


What is Airbrush Tanning?

Airbrush tanning is the safe and healthy alternative to tan without the effects of harmful U/V rays.  In Airbrush tanning, the tanning solution is applied directly to the skin by a technician using a compressor and airbrush system.

How long will it last?

A typical tan lasts anywhere from 5 to 10 days depending on the aftercare attention and general nature of a person's skin

How long does it take?

The process will take about 15 minutes from beginning to end. This includes preparation, the application of the tanning solution and the drying process.


What is in the solution?

The tanning solutions contain the active ingredient Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) which interacts with the keratin protein in the surface skin layer to produce a bronzing effect. The color of your skin will continue to darken after the initial application and will reach its maximum color in 8 hours. The solution has a bronzer that provides an immediate tan to help the technician to spray an even and complete tan. This bronzer will wash off when showering after the 8 hour period.

What is DHA?

Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is a common sugar derived from vegetable sources, often from sugar beets or sugar cane.  DHA is safe on the skin and will not affect the melanin or natural skin pigment.
