FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


How does a spray tan work?

The process is fairly simple. A thin mist is sprayed onto the desired areas of skin, and the skin turns a natural-looking shade of tan. The process works because of a chemical called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA). This chemical is actually colorless, but it interacts with the amino acids that naturally occur in skin cells.

Can I be naked during my spray tan appointment?

All women can tan naked, we do require men to wear undergarments.
