Below are some frequently asked questions about a sunless tan session.

What is Sunless Spray Tanning?

Sunless Spray Tanning is the spray/mist application of Sunless Tanning Solution to desired areas of your body. When applied, DHA (The active ingredient in Sunless Tanning Solution) reacts with the proteins in the skin’s superficial layer to form a golden brown colour. Your skin begins to darken two to three hours after application and reaches its peak colour within 24 hours. The colour will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun

Will the VersaSpa turn me orange?

No! In the past, drug-store self-tanners and hand-held spray tanning systems gave many individuals an unnatural orange glow and caused streaking. Most of these undesirable results were caused by improper or ineffective application techniques producing excessive amounts being absorbed unevenly in the skin. Unnatural dark spots may also appear in dry or thick skinned areas such as elbows, knees, and knuckles because these areas have a tendency to absorb more of the cream.

The new misting technology used by the VersaSpa assures that all areas of the body get a uniform coating of the solution in the exact quantity required to produce a golden brown tan.

How long will my sunless tan last?

On average, a sunless tan will last 5 to 7 days. The longevity of a VersaSpa Sunless Tan depends on your skin’s natural exfoliation process and on the skin regimen followed before and after application.

The faster your skin regenerates, the faster the sunless tan will fade. The VersaSpa tan is created by DHA and Erythulose, and affects only the top layer of the skin. It will begin to fade after 5 to 7 days as the skin naturally begins to exfoliate. It is important to keep skin moisturized after your VersaSpa session as dry, flaky skin will slough off faster and colour will fade sooner. Sunsational Tanz offers a variety of tan-extending products that help hydrate skin and maintain even, natural-looking colour, longer.

How long does it take?

From beginning to end, the entire process, including change and dry time, takes approximately 10 minutes. The spray itself takes approximately 1-3 minutes, depending on which combination of sprays you choose.

How soon before I see the results?

Your skin’s colour change is very gradual and although you will see results within the first several hours, the solution develops for 12-24 hours after you complete your session. Most people are at their darkest in a day.

Can I use it while pregnant?

Yes, VersaSpa is safe for pregnant and/or nursing women to use. We also recommend you consult with your doctor.

How do I prepare for my VersaSpa session?

Simply come to us with clean, dry, exfoliated skin free of makeup and moisturizers. Bring loose fitting clothing for after your session.

Will the product dye or damage my hair?

No, spray tan solution does not affect your hair. For your convenience however, we provide you with a disposable shower cap to prevent it from getting wet.

Will shaving affect my sunless tan?

Yes. Shaving causes expedited exfoliation of your skin, which is turn will cause your spray tan to be removed sooner. It’s for this reason that we recommended shaving and exfoliating prior to your session to prolong the spray tan as much as possible.

Other spray tan booths made me feel boxed in. How is VersaSpa different?

VersaSpa is an open concept machine. There are no doors to close on you, and you do not feel restricted or claustrophobic while doing your session. There are exhaust fans which draw in the excess solution so you do not have to breathe it in, as well as an infrared heater to keep you warm as you are sprayed.

Will it work if I have very fair skin?

Yes. The VersaSpa will give flawless tanning results on all skin types.

What do I wear in the booth?

You may wear a bathing suit, undergarments, or simply go nude while in the VersaSpa.

Do I have a choice of how dark I can be?

Yes, we offer three levels of darkness. Our lightest colour is Level 1, which gives you just a hint of colour. This is best suited for tanners who have very pale skin. Level 2 (our most popular) is for a sun-kissed glow. And our darkest colour is Level 3, which gives you a deep, dark, rich bronzed tan. Each skin type darkens and reacts differently to each solution level.

Do I have to take my makeup off? Can I apply makeup afterward?

The VersaSpa can go through makeup. But to ensure the perfect tan, it’s recommended that you begin your session with all over clean skin and wait at least 6 hours before putting on any makeup.
