At Fantasy MedSpa, We use premium Norvell Spray Tan products!
Let’s answer some of your questions about our spray tan!
HOW LONG WILL MY SUNLESS TAN LAST?
On average, a sunless tan will last about 7 days. The “life span” of a sunless tan also depends on your skin’s natural exfoliation. The faster your skin turns over, the faster the sunless tan will fade.
HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT AFTER USING A SELF-TANNER BEFORE I SHOWER?
DHA solutions take about 16-hours to fully develop. Clients will receive the best results if they can avoid bathing until the day after their sunless session. If they must bathe, they should wait a minimum of 6-hours after the application.
If showering prior to the 16-hour post application recommendation, a simple rinse with water only, is best.
Soap destroys the active ingredients in the solution.
WILL THE BRONZERS FROM A SPRAY TAN RUB-OFF ON MY CLOTHES OR SHEETS?
Some of the bronze color may rub off on clothing or bed sheets. This is most likely to happen when you get dressed immediately after tanning. To minimize the chance of the bronzers transferring to clothing, we recommend you wear loose-fitting, darker clothes after your spray session. Try to refrain from physical exertion that could result in your sweating until you shower and wash off the cosmetic bronzers.
WILL SUNLESS SOLUTION STAIN MY HAIR?
Most people will not see any effect on the color of their hair; however, those with light blonde, gray or platinum hair may see some temporary discoloration from the cosmetic bronzers. This discoloration will easily wash out during the first after session shower.
HOW CAN I PREVENT PATCHY OR UNEVEN WEAR-OFF?
Many individual factors can contribute to patchy or uneven wear-off, as each person’s skin is different.
- Be sure to gently exfoliate the skin before each session.
- Keep skin hydrated on the inside and out.
- It is also recommended that individuals not tan more than 3 times in a 2 week period, to avoid build-up of tanning solution that will contribute to uneven wear-off. For frequent sunless tanning clients, a salt scrub is recommended 1 to 2 times per month, to remove sunless tanning build-up. Be sure to wait at least 24 hours after Salt Scrub application before applying any sunless product, and do not shave immediately prior to using Salt Scrub.
SHOULD I ALLOW THE SKIN TO REST BETWEEN SPRAY SESSIONS?
It is recommended that individuals not tan more than 3 times in a 2 week period, to avoid build-up of tanning solution that will contribute to uneven wear-off.
This allows a complete cycle of natural exfoliation and eliminates patchiness or uneven areas of wear, such as around the waist, inside the arms where the elbow bends, underarms, and backs of knees. These are natural areas of the body where friction from clothing and daily activities may cause premature exfoliation.
HOW LONG AFTER TANNING SHOULD I WAIT TO ENJOY A POOL/SPA/OCEAN?
We recommend avoiding these situations for the first 48 hours following your spray tan. Chlorinated pools & spas can increase the rate in which the skin exfoliates causing the tan to wear and fade rapidly.
HOW DARK WILL MY TAN APPEAR AFTER ONE APPLICATION?
Results will vary based on the individual’s skin type and pH balance. Norvell® solutions have been formulated to provide a color that will be appealing to the majority of sunless tanners, and a variety of shades will allow you to find the perfect solution for your individual needs.
WILL A SUNLESS TAN PROTECT ME FROM EXPOSURE TO UV SUN RAYS?
No. It is common to get a false sense of security when you have been spray tanned. Your skin will still burn when overexposed.
It is still necessary to apply SPF lotions or sprays when in the sun. Norvell® solutions do NOT contain any SPF.
I HAVE VERY SENSITIVE SKIN, SHOULD I BE CONCERNED WITH A POSSIBLE REACTION TO NORVELL® SOLUTIONS?
If you are concerned with a possible allergic or skin reaction to the solution we recommend you first patch test a small area of the skin prior to a full body session.
Fantasy Medspa will be happy to arrange a pre-session patch test before scheduling a full body session.
WILL SUNLESS SOLUTION CAUSE ADDITIONAL FRECKLING TO ALREADY FRECKLED SKIN?
No. However, the spray does not cover freckles up either. What is darker will stay darker and what is lighter, stays lighter in contrast.
