The concern most doctors have is whether or not DHA is able to enter the blood stream; the indicators are that it cannot. DHA only penetrated the outermost layer of the skin. However, we recommend that you get permission from your physician first. DHA is used in most cosmetic ingredients, supplements in the united states.
Since we're now a mobile service, we require at least 10-15 Minutes to set up all of our equipment. After setting up the tanning itself takes approximately 10 minutes to apply the solution. You're looking at a total of 30-40 Minutes with setting up and the application.
The tan lasts approximately 5-10 days, depending on the person’s activities, aftercare and condition of the skin. The proper method of exfoliation prior to your spray tan application is most important, this is to ensure the tan will be even throughout your skin.
Yes, Most formulas come in three levels of solutions (8%,10%, and 12%). The higher percentage of DHA does not necessarily mean a darker tan. There is only a certain amount of DHA the skin can absorb at one time. Using too high of a percentage or too much DHA at once will result in an unnatural looking tan that will fade poorly leaning the skin uneven.
Absolutely! Despite the color of the skin, you’re just as susceptible to the harmful rays of outdoor and indoor tanning. Sunblock lotions are preferred over the spray can bottles because they contain alcohol which may dry the skin further causing your tan to fade faster or even become blotchy.
DHA is non-hazardous compound that causes no adverse reaction in the quantities found in a sunless solution. DHA has been FDA approved for over 30 years and is found in makeup and products we use everyday. There are no harsh chemicals in a tanning solution. The amount of DHA that could be inhaled during a session would be .05 milligrams, which is equivalent to less than a grain of table salt. The easiest was to comply with the recommendations for safety is to either keep your mouth closed or wear a mask during your session. Also you may ask for barrier cream on and around the eyes.
Due to the ever changing chemistry of the body, there are times of the month that our bodies are less receptive to DHA. Some people can even be DHA resistant. If a client doesn’t let the tan develop the appropriate amount of time the color of the tan may not be as deep as before. During a stressful day, a client may perspire excessively during development time. This dilutes the solution and does not allow the DHA to absorb into the skin properly. Finally the skin may have had residual oil, or moisturizer on it. This blocks the DHA and prevents the skin from reacting and changing colors.
