Spray Tanning

A Golden Brown Natural Looking Tan

Spray tanning is a safe alternative to tanning beds that use dangerous UV rays that can damage the skin and cause premature aging. A spray tan using professional equipment and quality tanning solutions results in a beautiful natural and even tone. Our spray tans do not have the uneven and orange color that you see with over the counter tanning creams and sprays.

Our spay tanning solution is non toxic. The active ingredient is DHA. DHA is derived from sugar cane and was discovered as a skin coloring agent in the 1920’s. It was approved for topical use by the FDA in 1973 and has been used for decades without harmful effects. DHA (dihydroxyacetone) reacts with the amino acids in the dead layer of your skin. DHA combines with the amino acids to form brown-colored melaninoids. It is not absorbed into the body and is non-toxic.

All of our spray tanning is done manually with equipment similar to an air brush but designed for spray tanning. We do not use automated spray tanning booths. Your spray tan is customized to the contours of your body and drips and runs are eliminated. Spray tanning is the fastest and easiest way to get a beautiful tan. To get the same tan in a tanning bed or by sun bathing would take multiple sessions over a period of time and with the possibility of burning. We can make your tan as dark or as light as you want, to suit your own natural complexion and preferences.

Q&A... How is spray tanning different than over the counter tanning lotions? A trained and experienced technician using professional spray tanning equipment is able to apply the solution much more evenly than can be done by applying lotions at home. There is an art to applying a spray tan in a natural way that looks the same as the effects of actual sun exposure. This is also why we feel that a custom spray tan can give superior results to a session in an automated spray tan booth. We use the best spray tanning solution. The spray tanning solution used at La Fleur Spa costs two to three times what most other professional spray tanning solutions cost. The difference can be seen in the results.

Q&A... Do I have to be sprayed in the nude? Some people are more shy than others. Many of our clients are comfortable being spray tanned in the nude and enjoy the look of being tanned all over. We can also spray tan you wearing a bathing suit or underwear. This leaves very natural looking lighter areas on the body similar to tan lines that you would get from sunbathing with a swim suit on.

Q&A... Will I breath the spray tanning solution? Our spray tan room is equipped with a special ventilation system that filters the air. It also produces a current of clean air from above that moves any airborne tanning solution away from your face. We have nose plugs, but most of our clients feel that they are unnecessary.

Q&A... Is any special preparation required? Yes. There are a few simple steps that you should follow such as exfoliation before your spray tanning session. This is to ensure that the spray tanning solution penetrates as evenly as possible and gives the best results. We have provided a spray tanning guide for you on our website in PDF format. This guide will tell you everything that you need to do before and after your spray tan. You may print it and keep it as a handy reference.

Q&A... How long does a spray tan last? The length of your tan is determined by your skin type. Dry skin and excessive rubbing of the skin will shorten the life of your tan. Be sure to moisturize. Under normal conditions your tan should last approximately ten days
