After having Melanoma removed from my back , I had to change my lifestyle. I'm fair skinned & do not tan well in the sun. So my only other option was using self tanners or spray booths, which never resluted in a nice even tan. That's when I decided to start personalized spray tanning.
Over the years, I have watched sunless tanning position itself for explosive growth. Sunless tanning provides a new service to customer's who either cannot or choose not to get a traditional UV tan. With all the health risks due to Sun and UV exposure this is the best way to give yourself that "Just off The Beach Golden Glow" without the health risks! The concept of Sunless tanning has come a long way since it's introduction in the 1960's. Today, sunless products offer superior self-tanning formulas as well as the latest application processes. My application process is through a HVLP system which applies the sunless solution through a body gun. With this system I'm able to improve the overall even application & decrease the time needed to apply a full-body tan. A full body spray tan takes about 5 minutes!
Here are some common Questions and Answers.
Q: How do you prepare?
A: Our technician will ask you to remove all jewelry and you are invited to be as
modest as you choose; swim wear is the most popular choice. The technician will help you
to place a shower cap over your hair. Important: Do not touch yourself for the
first 60 minutes after applying the spray tan. Please see Pre & Post Tan Care on our home page.
Q: In general how does spray tanning work?
A: The key ingredient is DHA (Dihydroxyacetone), a sugar based derivative
which reacts with the keratin proteins in the surface (dead) layers of your skin,
producing a bronzed glow. When sprayed on the skin, it activates itself through
your body’s temperature by opening the pores and absorbs into the skin. Once
in your skin it has a chemical reaction with your skin's amino acids, creating a
natural looking bronze on the skin's surface. Spray tanning solutions rely on
the effects of a natural chemical reaction, not solar rays, to produce a bronzed
appearance. Thus your skin is salvaged from the harmful effects of UVA and

A: Sunspray by Tan Envy solution gives you a long lasting and impressive, natural looking tan.
Q: Will I look orange?
A: No! The reason you may see people who look orange after a spray tan is due to over spraying and using a level that is to high for their skin type. I guarantee your results will be a nice natural bronze look.
Q: How long will my spray tan last and how do I protect it?
A: Depending on your activities level, skin type and preparation, your tan should
7 days. For the first 8 hours after your spray tan is applied, do not
shower or swim. Do not apply perfume or engage in vigorous activities. Avoid getting
wet from rain; raindrops on newly sprayed skin will result in spotting. Remember
that regular moisturizing will extend the tan’s life and with follow-up applications,
you can maintain your tan indefinitely.
