1. What is Spray Tan (aka sunless tanning or airbrush tanning)?
Spray tan is a beauty treatment during which the body is sprayed with a formula that reacts with the skin to create an artificial suntan. It is a great way to achieve the summer-like glow that so many men and women crave, even in the cooler winter months. Even better, it allows you to look tan, without baking in the sun all day and putting yourself at risk for skin cancer and sun damage.
2. Is spray tanning?
Absolutely. While the safety of spray tanning has come into question because of the use of DHA (dihydroxyacetone), you’ll be happy to know that Bellini Beauty bar uses a no-DHA spray tan formula. Our spray tan product, SunFX, is without a doubt the safest way to achieve the glow you desire. To learn more about this organic spray tan formula, visit their website, http://www.sunfxamerica.com.
3. How long does a spray tan last?
A spray tan can last up to 14 days, but will fade slightly within 7 days. Spray tan formulas react with the top layer of skin, so we recommend that clients exfoliate their entire body before receiving a spray tan treatment, as exfoliation wipes away dead skin cells.
4. Do you have to be naked to get a spray tan?
Whether or not you go nude to get a spray tan is entirely up to you. Most of our clients are topless and wear a small pair of underwear during their spray tan session so that they can avoid lines from clothing.
5. How can I make my spray tan last longer?
There are several things that you can do to make a spray tan last longer. First, be sure to exfoliate your entire body before coming in for a spray tan session. This gets rid of dead cells on the skins surface so the spray tanned skin will stick around longer. Second, make sure that you are not wearing any lotions, perfumes, or makeup before your spray tan. A spray tan will only work if the product can react with the natural skin, and any lotions, makeup or perfume will create a barrier. So, for the best spray tan results make sure you are au-naturale for your spray tan appointment.
6. Can I shower after a spray tan?
We recommend that you wait 8 hours to shower after a spray tan. While others will say that it is okay to shower after 4 hours, the truth is that the longer you wait, the better chance you have of the spray tan lasting a long time. It should be noted however, that residue from the treatment will rub onto other fabrics, so if you plan to sleep before showering, it is best to change your sheets.
7. Will I look orange after a spray tan?
Absolutely not! Our spray tan results look natural. No one will ever know that your tan is “fake.” While fake tanning lotions and creams can leave an orange, streaky look, our treatments are 100% customized. You decide how dark (or light) you want to go. Unlike other salons that use automated spray tan booths, we have dedicated spray tan technicians who are experts in shading and will be sure that your results look natural.
