Sunless tanners work without sunlight to safely combine with the natural amino acids on the surface of the skin. The active ingredient in virtually all sunless tanning formulas is DHA (Dihydroxyacetone.) DHA has undergone decades of dermatological testing and is proven safe. Its the way to gorgeous without spending a minute under the harmful sun. When DHA is applied to the skin, it reacts with the amino acids in the skin to produce a tan, much like how the sun does, but without UVA and UVB damage to the skin.
Different formulations of sunless tanners provide different results. Professional Airbrush Systems atomize the tanning solution into a cooling mist that is applied to the body. The DHA and other ingredients react with the proteins on the top layer of skin to produce a golden, just off the beach tan! The experienced technician applying the tanning solution has complete control to ensure an even application.

Pre- Tanning Prep
Exfoliate at least 8 hours prior to your appointment
Shave and/or wax at least 8 hours prior to your appointment
DO NOT apply any lotion before your appointment. The lotion creates a barrier that prevents your tan from developing.
Wait at least 8-10 hours to shower the extra solution off. (We recommend overnight if you can wait that long.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!! The more hydrated your skin is, the long your tan lasts and the healthier your skin looks.
What to wear?
You may wear a bathing suit, bra and panties, you may go topless, or bottomless, and even nude if you do not want tanlines (whatever you feel comfortable with). Certain materials will absorb the solution and get stained such as satin or silk as well as light colors.
You may wear shorts, boxers, or bathing suit.
