What is the difference between the Versa Spa spray booth and Custom Air brush?

Versa Spa: This is an open-air machine where you stand in and do either a 2 pass or 4 pass positions. With this booth there are many different options with color; light medium, and dark. Also clear level, which lets the client develop color 4 to 6 hours after their session and a bronze level where the client has immediate color, both give you the same end result. Versa Spa has voice commands to help clients through their spray tan and also letting them know when to turn. A luxurious spray tan in your own privacy!


Custom Airbrush: A technician using a spray tan machine applies this type of tanning. The technician creates a custom color for your skin tone and is applied directly to the skin. This eliminates unwanted tan areas such as underarms, knees and elbows that often soak up too much solution resulting in dark areas, they can touch up areas to blend color or add more color, add definition for things like abs or thighs, and help even out skin tone issues due to rosacea, eczema or other issues. This making the process completely “custom”.



The Different Kinds of Tanning Beds

When going to a tanning salon you want to ask the sales clerk what kinds of beds they have. Here are  two different kinds of tanning!

Low Pressured: This tanning beds are the traditional beds. The UV rays are emitted in a spectrum that is similar to natural sunlight. The lamps also produce fast color but the risk of sunburn is highest in this kind of a level. If you have a tendency to burn easily, a low pressure bed is not recommend to use.  This level is considered the low to medium level beds.

High Pressured: These types of beds emit a higher proportion of UVA, which is more of a tanning ray. UVB rays are the ones that cause a sunburn.

What Are Tingle Lotions?

Have your tired many different tanning lotions but have not found one you like the most? Try a tingle lotion!  The reason these lotions are called tingle tanning is that they give a tingling sensation on your skin after you apply the lotion; hence the name. It’s certainly more intense than other tanning lotions on the market. What the lotion does is bring blood to the skin surface and, essentially, oxygen to affect the skin’s melanin.  The more melanin that’s affected, the darker your skin is going to become.  Basically the purpose to tingle tanning lotions is to boost the effects of UV rays you expose yourself to when lying in tanning bed. Try a sample of a tingle lotion before buying a bottle to see if you like it or not!
