Preparation Tips for a Perfect Tan.

  • Exfoliate your skin thoroughly the day before your spray tan appointment to remove dead skin cells and create a smooth surface for the tanning solution to adhere to.
  • Shave or wax at least 24 hours before your spray tan appointment to allow any minor skin irritations to heal and prevent the tanning solution from settling into hair follicles.
  • Avoid using oil-based skincare products, moisturizers, and lotions on the day of your spray tan appointment, as they can create a barrier that may prevent the tanning solution from absorbing evenly into the skin.
  • Do not apply any makeup, deodorant, or perfume to your skin on the day of your spray tan appointment, as these products can interfere with the tanning process and result in uneven coloration.
  • Wear loose, dark-colored clothing to your spray tan appointment to minimize the risk of smudging or transferring the tanning solution onto your clothes.
  • Remove any jewelry, watches, or accessories that may leave marks on your skin during the spray tan application process.
  • Consider bringing a hair tie or hair cap to keep your hair away from your face and neck during the spray tan application.
  • Communicate any specific concerns or preferences with your spray tan technician before the appointment to ensure they can customize the tanning solution to meet your needs.
  • Plan to avoid sweating, swimming, or showering for at least 8-10 hours after your spray tan appointment to allow the tanning solution to fully develop and set on your skin.
  • After your spray tan has fully developed, moisturize your skin regularly with a hydrating lotion to prolong the lifespan of your tan and maintain a healthy glow.

I definitely recommend Dermatology Associates! There was no long wait like at most places. The waiting room and exam room were clean and comfortable, and the staff was super nice. I had to call multiple times after having trouble with the patient portal, and each time I called, they were nice and helpful. Katie made me feel so comfortable. She didn’t try to rush through my appointment to get to the next patient like in some places. She answered all my questions and made me feel so at ease, even with my terrible anxiety. Seriously can’t say enough good things about this place!

FAQs 

While a spray tan provides a bronzed appearance, it does not offer protection against UV rays. It's essential to continue using sunscreen to shield your skin from the sun's harmful effects, even with a spray tan.

The longevity of a spray tan depends on various factors, including your skin type, skincare routine, and activities. Typically, a spray tan can last between 5 to 7 days with proper care and maintenance.

Yes, our spray tan technicians offer customizable color options to suit your preferences. Whether you prefer a subtle glow or a deep bronze, we can adjust the tanning solution to achieve your desired shade.

With proper preparation and application techniques, a spray tan should result in smooth, even coverage. Our experienced technicians ensure thorough application and provide post-tan care instructions to minimize the risk of streaks or blotches.

It's recommended to wait at least 8-10 hours before showering after a spray tan to allow the tanning solution to fully develop and set on your skin. Showering too soon may cause the tan to fade prematurely.

While some transfer of the tanning solution may occur immediately after the application, it is minimal and should not stain clothing or sheets once the tan has fully developed and been rinsed off. Wearing loose, dark-colored clothing to your appointment can help minimize any potential transfer.

It's best to avoid activities that may cause excessive sweating or exposure to water for at least 8-10 hours after a spray tan to allow the solution to fully develop. Once the tan has set, you can resume your regular activities, but keep in mind that chlorine and saltwater may accelerate tan fading.

To extend the longevity of your spray tan, moisturize your skin regularly with a hydrating lotion, avoid prolonged exposure to water or excessive sweating, and pat your skin dry after showering instead of rubbing. Additionally, using a gentle, sulfate-free body wash can help maintain the integrity of your tan.

If you have sensitive skin or allergies, it's essential to inform your spray tan technician before your appointment. They can perform a patch test or recommend suitable tanning solutions that are hypoallergenic and gentle on the skin.

The frequency of spray tan appointments depends on your desired level of tan maintenance. For most clients, scheduling a spray tan appointment every 1-2 weeks helps maintain a consistent glow. Our technicians can provide personalized recommendations based on your skin type and lifestyle.
