How does Fantasy Tan work?

Fantasy Tan's specially-made airbrush atomizes the Fantasy Tan formula into cooling vapor that assures an even application. The active ingredient in their formulas, Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), responds with the amino acids on the very outermost top layer of the skin to produce a tan color, similar to what the sun does, but without damage to the skin.

Find out more specific information on our "About Fantasy Tan" page.

How long does it last?

With absolutely no sun exposure at all, the tans can last between 7-10 days. The way the tan fades is dependent on the way each person naturally exfoliates his or her skin. The longer and more regularly you tan, the better the tanning effect will wear.

Its going to last the longest if you properly exfoliate before your tanning. There are also post-tan self tanning creams and mousses that will prolong the bronze. More info below.

Should I exfoliate before the tanning?

Absolutely. Exfoliation before your spray tanning will help your tan to last as long as possible. I'm happy to reccommend several great exfoliation products if you'd like.

What should I wear to my spray tanning ?

It's best to wear dark, loose-fitting clothing. Some of the spray color can get on your clothes, but it comes out easily in the wash. For the spray tanning itself, women often wear a bikini or unerwear, usually with no top, but its up to you. Whatever makes you most comfortable and gets you the sexy tan line you desire. For men, shorts or boxers.

What else can I do to prepare?

It's important that you're not wearing any lotions, powders, or deodorant. Lotions will block the tanning formula, giving you streaks. So you'll want to shower before your spray tanning, and avoid the temptation to apply lotion or makeup or anything. The only time I've seen the colors come out strange is when the client was wearing deodorant.

What do I need to do after the tanning?

First, wait at least 8 hours after tanning before you shower. If you can wait a little longer, even better. The tanning process peaks at 12 hours. Avoid athletic activities that will cause you to sweat before the after-tan shower.

Second, once you've had your after-tan shower, apply moisturizer regularly. Hydrated skin is essential to maintaining a long lasting tan.

Do you recommend any products to make the tan last longer?

Absolutely. Like we've said, the spray tan should last about a week before it starts fading. If you'd like to keep that glow a little longer, there are number of products on the market that we've tried and liked. When you have your appointment, be sure to ask, and we'll let you know what products would be best for your skin type.

Will I look orange?

This is a very common question from first-timers. The answer is no. Fantasy Tan has worked very hard to develop great tanning formulations, and with Fantasy Tan, the days of orange tans are over.

've definitely seem some other brands that produce very orangey looks. I'm sure you've seen them too. This was a major factor in why I chose to build my business on the Fantasy Tan product.

Also, the airbrushing approach helps to avoid uneven or unnecessarily heavy application that you might get with Mystic and other booth tanners. I promise, you'll look fabulous.

Will I look, um, strange? Will people know I've spray tanned?

Trust me, we'll find exactly the right shade for your skin. If you want your tan to be so dark that everyone will notice and ask where you've been vacationing, we can certainly do that. On the other hand, if you'd rather be more subtle, we can give you a look that is stunning without screaming out. Fantasy Tan looks very natural, and I'm sure you'll be thrilled with how it looks.

How long does it take to spray tan me?

It takes about 10 minutes for a full body tanning. If I'm coming to you, I'll need a few more minutes to get set up.

Do you do tanning parties?

Yes, of course. This is a great way to get friends together for a fun night while getting an amazing spray tan. Find out more about Tanning Parties.

How much does it cost?

Our rates vary, depending on if you come into the salon or if we're coming to you. Also, if you organize a tanning party, I may be able to give you really nice discounts. Drop me a line, and I'll let you know how we charge.

Do you offer discounts if I refer friends?

I love growing the business, and I'm grateful when my clients refer their friends, family, or co-workers. As thanks, yes, I'd be happy to give a discount to my clients for referral business.

Are there different colors? Can I pick how dark I get?

Fantasy Tan produces multiple formulations for different shades. Part of my job as a certified Fantasy Tan technician is to understand your skin type and help you pick the right shade for you.

Fantasy Tan has 8 unique Tanning formulas available. We recognize everyone has different skin types, and no one formula suits everyone. We can even totally customize your tan by blending our different formulas together to create the most desired color for you.

Are there side effects? Should I worry about allergies?

There are no known harmful side effects reported from the use of self-tanners containing DHA. A very small percent of people are allergic to DHA and may break out. The FDA concluded that DHA is safe for external use. They do however caution users on inhalation of DHA, and exposure to the eyes and lips. Fantasy Tan’s training techniques stress the importance of avoiding direct exposure to those areas.

I have vericose veins. Can this help cover them up?

I've seen a nice spray tan, applied professionally, do wonders to cover up vericose veins. Bottom line is that if your skin tone is darker, they won't stand out as much, and you can feel great about showing off those hot legs of yours.

I suffer from acne. Will this help or make it worse?

I haven't seen any problems or heard any complaints, but if you're at all worried, you should check with your dermatologist to see what they say. I can say that a nice bronze tone on your skin can help to cover up acne, and make skin appear clearer.
