SunBed Tanning

Tanning is natural, and it works the same whether you tan outdoors or in a salon. Melanin, the brownish pigment produced by special cells in the base layers of the skin, determine an individual’s ability to tan. As the skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays, this melanin is activated and combines with protein cells rising to the skin’s surface, to produce a tan. The amount of melanin in the body determines how quickly and dark an individual can tan.

Use of lotions specially designed for indoor tanning should be used prior to your session. These lotions are designed to help maximize your tanning potential. We offer a wide variety of tanning lotion including intensifiers, bronzers, coolants and tingles. We will consult with you and help determine which lotion type best suits your needs. Only salon approved lotions can be used in our units. Creams, lotions, and oils designed for use outdoors contain sunscreen which forms a physical barrier on the skin, keeping the UVA & UVB rays from penetrating the skin, inhibiting the tanning process. They also destroy the acrylic you lay on. Skin moisturizers designed for indoor tanning needs should be applied following every tanning session. This promotes a smoother, more even looking tan.

Mystic Sunless Tanning

Sunless spray tanning is the spray/mist application of Sunless tanning solution to your body. When applied, DHA (the active ingredient in Sunless tanning solution) reacts with the proteins in the skin’s superficial layer to form a golden brown color.

Your skin begins to darken two to three hours after application and reaches its peak color within 24 hours. The color will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun.
