Did You Know: Are Spray Tans Safe?

Share This

Sunless tanning with over-the-counter lotions and gels or spray-on tanning solutions like VersaSpa are practical and luxurious alternatives to sun tanning that will still leave you feeling bright, bronzed and beautiful.

The secret is the way that sunless tanning works. With UV tanning, controlled rays of ultraviolet light cause a natural chemical reaction deep inside your skin. Most sunless tanning lotions and sprays contain the active ingredient dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a vegetable derivative that causes a similar reaction on the top layer of skin only.  Your skin appears bronzed, radiant and beautiful for a short period of time. As your skin naturally sheds dead cells and pushes new ones to the surface, the result of sunless tanning fades.

Not all spray tanners are created equal, however, and for a smooth and professional tan without UV rays, look no further than the VersaSpa at your favorite Sun Tan City.  You can also visit our client care pages to learn more about what sets the VersaSpa apart from other sunless tanning solutions.

      Hi Elaine, we do allow pregnant women to tan, but please consult your doctor if you have any concerns.
