Exposure to the sun can cause painful sunburns, premature aging, and skin cancer. Spray Tanning at Three Rivers Dermatology & Windy Ridge Skin Care Centre is a great alternative to damaging your skin under the sun! It is the easiest way to give yourself a complete makeover in just minutes and our spray tan adds a beautiful, natural-looking color to your skin without the sun exposure. So when you need to look and feel your best, go sunless!
You will be hand sprayed by a trained aesthetician using the world’s only laser-guided spray tanning system. This will ensure a flawless tan every time! Your beautiful tan will develop over the next 12-20 hours and it lasts up to seven days if taken care of properly.
In preparation for your first Spray Tan experience, we’d like to share a few of the tips and tricks we’ve learned to help you get the most out of your sunless tan.
- Exfoliate prior to your spray tanning appointment.
- Use a loufa type sponge/exfoliating cloth or any exfoliating product that does not contain oil.
- Shave prior to tanning. If you shave after spray tanning you have the potential of losing the tan.
- Do not use any body oils
- Bring a swim suit if you wish to wear one. The solution will not stain. You may tan with as little clothing as you feel comfortable with.
Day of Tanning
- Time in office is approximately 20-30 minutes.
- Do not use any products: deodorant, lotions, oils, even hair products can interfere with the color on the back of the neck, etc.
- Wear loose fitting clothing and shoes to avoid rubbing off the bronzer.
- For best results DO NOT SHOWER for 12-20 hours after spray tanning.
- Tan lasts approximately 5-7 days.
- If you use a good moisturizer regularly you will have a longer-lasting tan.
