The Ultimate Guide to Airbrush Spray Tanning

The Ultimate Guide to Airbrush Spray Tanning

Are you looking for a gorgeous, sunkissed glow without harmful UV exposure? Then, airbrush spray tanning is for you! This comprehensive guide covers everything you need to know about our customized airbrush spray tanning services at Skylar Grace Med Spa.

Workplace Safety

What is Airbrush Spray Tanning?

Airbrush spray tanning (sunless tanning) provides an all-over tan using a fine mist sprayed evenly over the body. A technician uses an airbrush gun that applies a solution containing the active ingredient dihydroxyacetone (DHA). This reacts with amino acids in the outer layer of the skin to temporarily darken its appearance.

Unlike outdated spray booths, airbrush tanning allows precise control over shade, coverage, and custom contouring. The result is a flawless, natural-looking tan tailored to your skin tone that develops over 24 hours.

Benefits of Airbrush Spray Tanning

Airbrush tanning offers many perks compared to UV tanning:

Even streak-free coverage - Our technicians expertly blend solutions for customizable coverage.

Subtle, buildable color - Achieve any depth of tan from a light sunkissed glow to ultra-dark bronzing.

Hydrating ingredients - Solutions contain moisturizers like aloe vera and anti-aging antioxidants.

Quick, convenient - Sessions take as little as 15 minutes for an all-over glow.

Safer than UV tanning - Avoid skin damage and premature aging from UV exposure.

Long-lasting results- With proper care, airbrush tans can last up to 10 days or more.

How the Airbrush Spray Tanning Process Works

Getting a flawless airbrush tan at our med spa is quick and easy:

  • Exfoliate and shave 24 hours before your appointment, helping remove dead skin cells and hair.
  • Arrive with clean, dry skin - no lotions, makeup, perfumes, or deodorant.
  • Undress to your comfort level. We provide disposable undergarments.
  • Our technician will consult on your perfect shade and contour the solutions to your body shape.
  • Relax as the spray solution is evenly applied using sweeping motions.
  • Dry off and wait the recommended time before showering (4-8 hours).
  • Moisturize daily and avoid activities that cause excessive sweating.
  • Your customized tan continues to develop over the next 24 hours.

That's it! We'll have you walking out with a beautiful bronze glow in no time.

Airbrush vs. UV Tanning

How does airbrush tanning compare to UV tanning beds or the sun?

  • Airbrush uses DHA to darken the top layers of skin safely. UV penetrates deeply and damages DNA.
  • You control the shade with the airbrush. UV tanning has higher risks of burning or uneven coloring.
  • Airbrush tanning solution ingredients like aloe vera and antioxidants are nourishing. UV ages and dehydrates skin over time.
  • Sessions take 15 mins vs. lying in the sun or a tanning bed's radiation for 30 mins or more.
  • Airbrush tanning fades naturally over 5-10 days. Damage from UV is cumulative over your lifetime.

Airbrush spray tanning is safer, quicker, and better for your skin!

Caring for Your Airbrush Tan

To make your customized spray tan last as long as possible:

  • Wait at least 8 hours before showering after your session. Use lukewarm water only.
  • Gently pat dry and avoid scrubbing or shaving for several days.
  • Apply a daily moisturizer to the entire body to retain moisture and extend the tan.
  • Avoid swimming pools, hot tubs, or activities causing heavy sweating for 24 hours.
  • Wear loose, dark clothing and avoid getting wet on the ride home.
  • Know that some natural fading over 5-10 days is normal. Schedule touch-ups!

Proper aftercare helps your airbrush tan look flawless longer. Ask our technicians for more tips!
