Frequently Asked Questions
Did you know that there are many misconceptions about tanning? Well, we are here to give you the low down and try to address many of the common misconceptions and answer all your questions to give you nothing but the truth. Here goes:
Is Indoor UV-tanning dangerous?
The truth is, all types of UV exposure, indoor or outdoor, if done without precaution is dangerous. Indoor UV-tanning is regulated to expose you to the right amount of UV rays for the right amount of time, according to your specific skin type. Tanning outside exposes you to several factors than can increase the dangers of UV exposure, if not done with precaution and moderation. Indoor UV-tanning can be a safer and more controlled way to get your tan.

ONE UV Session in our tanning booth = TWO hours under the sun on the beach
What is the best way to get the darkest in the quickest amount of time?
At The Tanning Salon we offer the Cocktail tan, a combo of UV + Mystic Tan in one session. When the tan develops over the course of 6 hours, this double-dip will leave you looking like you've just got back from a long vacation in the Caribbean.
How long does a Mystic Tan last?
A Mystic Tan™ lasts for the duration it takes for your skin to naturally exfoliate itself, between 5- 7 days on average. The active ingredient in Mystic Tan™[DHA] makes a layer on top of your skin, giving you your gorgeous glow, but as soon as your skin exfoliates and makes an exit, so does your Mystic Tan™.
Do I have to cover my nipples or private parts?
No. You can tan in your birthday suit, butt-naked. You can keep your underwear on if you want to have tan lines. Your nipples are safe ladies, no different from guys' nipples so no need to cover them up. However, if you are doing a UV Tan and some parts of your body are much paler than others (such as your butt), you must choose a tanning time based on your palest skin to avoid getting burnt there.
Can I tan every day?
Although we would love to have you tan every day, we recommend a min of 48 hours between tans. Your tan can take up to 48 hours to fully develop so be patient. Moderation is the key to a healthy tan all year round.
