The Salon de Sol Tanning Process

Clients planning to tan should be sure to read and understand the tanning facility warning provided by our salon. Any client on medication should discuss their plan to tan with their physician and be aware of any photosensitive agents they may be taking. The client may bring lotion, but needs to ensure that is is for indoor use as we do not allow outdoor lotions and oils to be used in our salon; and don't forget their protective eye wear! If you do, don't worry, as we keep these items in stock for sale at the salon! Per KRS 217.922, all clients under the age of 18: require parental/legal guardian consent; under the age of 16: must also be accompanied by a parent/guardian at time of service. The client should protect sensitive areas during the service, especially if tanning in the nude (this includes use of a lip balm with a SPF protection) and wearing their protective eye wear as required by the law. If at any time during the service should the client develop any discomfort or stinging, they should exit the equipment immediately and stop the session! The client should continue to moisturize after their session and can apply an aloe-based product for any discomfort associated with overexposure. Remember, we require the client to allow at least 24 hours to pass before visiting for their next service.

Spray tanning is accomplished by application of a solution containing the active ingredient Dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA is considered to be safe and has been FDA approved ONLY if you follow guidelines to protect mucous membranes. DHA is listed in the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) as a color additive for use in imparting color to the human body. However, its use in cosmetics – including sunless “tanning” products – is restricted to external application. According to CFR, “externally applied” cosmetics are those applied only to external parts of the body and not to the lips or any body surface covered by mucous membrane” (21 CFR 70.3v). DHA reacts with the skin’s amino acids resulting in a “tan” similar looking to that of the sun. The darker you can tan naturally, the darker you can tan with a spray tan. Like most cosmetics, avoid exposure to the eyes, lips, and other parts of body covered with a mucous membrane. This should be accomplished by following breathing instructions as to avoid inhaling or ingesting the sunless product and by applying a barrier cream.

CAUTION: All people are different! All ingredients in this procedure are intended for cosmetic use and generally regarded as safe. There are, however, occasions where individuals may be allergic to one or more ingredients in the spray tan solution. If this occurs, shower and discontinue use. If you have a severe reaction, then you should contact a physician. You may ask to see the ingredients prior to application if you have any known allergies. Be advised there is a small percentage of people whose skin may not react favorably to spray tanning. Some medications such as birth control pills, hormone replacement medications, or antibiotics may alter your tan. For this reason, be advised we do NOT advise being sprayed for photographic sessions, modeling assignments, weddings, etc. unless you have had a trial spray tan with us. Pregnant or nursing women should consult their physician before using this service and product!

WARNING: This product does not contain sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin to UV light may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin, even if you do not burn.

Clients planning to utilize our sunless tanning spray tan service need to schedule their session on our website. The client should exfoliate prior to the service and free of makeup, deodorants, and perfumes. The client should avoid shaving at least 24 hours prior and may apply a barrier cream on those difficult areas. The client should wear loose dark clothing, open shoes, and should bring their protective eye wear. Note: The solution used typically washes out of most clothing, however, be advised that staining may occur on these items and any item you come in contact with (i.e. leather seats, etc.) so please use extra caution and care. The process takes approximately 15-30 minutes. After the service, the client should avoid getting wet until after their first shower 4-6 hours after the service. Letting the solution stay on overnight without showering is recommended, however, the client should remember to use caution and care as the solution may cause staining on some fabrics and materials. Do not use any strong soaps or abrasive materials during the shower (your hand works best at this time) and make sure to apply moisturizer afterwards on a regular basis. The spray tan will typically last 4-7 days depending on skin type and how well the client cares for their sunless tan. The client should keep their skin moisturized and avoid long contacts with water, including hot tubs, saltwater exposure, and chlorinated pools which can shorten the duration of the spray tan.
