Below are some answers to
frequently asked questions.

What Is Airbrush Tanning?

A personalized body airbrushing technique using an Airbrush Spray System that distributes an even mist all over the body.

How Does Airbrush
Tanning work?

The FDA approved primary in-gredient dihydroxyacetone (DHA), reacts with the amino acids (proteins) in the outermost "dead" layer of your skin. There is an external bronzer in our product, which begins to show almost immediately. There is no damage to the underlying living layers of skin, and unlike tanning beds and sunlight, there are no long-term ultra-violet carcinogenic dangers.  This healthy tan goes beautifully over an existing tan and can even out or eliminate any tan lines, if you wish. For the untanned and fair of skin, our premium quality Airbrush products will fool your friends into thinking you've become a sun goddess overnight.

How long does an
Airbrush Tan last?

An airbrushed tan will typically last 7-10 days. It all depends on your skin type and how you care for it following the tanning session. Airbrush tanning produces color on the outermost layer of the skin, and that layer is being discarded, cell-by-cell. If you wear your skin hard, take long hot baths or showers, wear clothes that chafe, or do anything to encourage the skin to "shed," so does your tan. You can extend the life of your tan by using Desert Rain moisturizer and tan extender lotion at least once daily.

How safe is
Airbrush Tanning?

The primary ingredient, DHA (dihydroxyacetone), is derived from raw sugar cane and has been FDA approved for cosmetic use. DHA has been used safely over the years in numerous sunless tanning products, such as creams and lotions. The premium quality product we use is manufactured with the most advanced method available. Our solution allows for better adhesion and longer lasting results than similarly advertised products, which charge more, and is without the odd coloring effects of earlier generation products.

Does tanning protect
me from the sun?

NO! Airbrush tanning DOES NOT protect you from the sun. It is recommended that a sunscreen be used anytime you go out into the sun.

How long does it take
to get tanned?

Your session takes approximately 30 minutes. It takes approximately 20-25 minutes to airbrush the tan. Drying usually takes 5 minutes.

What do clients wear?

Attire for women is whatever you are comfortable with. Many things can be done to minimize tan lines. The key is your comfort level. Attire for men is boxers, swim trunks or shorts. Our tanning specialists use the utmost discretion. Loose fitting clothing, and sandals should be worn for leaving the salon. We have found that DHA reacts with wool, nylon, and silk. These fabrics should not be worn during or immediately following your tanning session.

How Do I Maintain
My Tan?

  • MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE!  We recommend Desert Rain Moisturizer Tan Extender.

  • Schedule regular tanning sessions.
