Types of Tanning Beds
At Desert Sun Tanning Salon, we offer a variety of UV tanning beds to suit your individual needs. UV tanning beds use ultraviolet light to produce a naturally-looking, long-lasting tan.
The UV rays penetrate the top layers of your skin, which stimulates the production of melanin (the pigment responsible for a tanning effect). UV tanning is the safest and most effective form of indoor tanning, and it is recommended by dermatologists as a safe and effective way to get a beautiful, long-lasting tan.
The following types of tanning beds are available at Desert Sun Tanning Salon: –
UV beds are the most common type of tanning bed and are available in all styles. UV beds produce a safe and gradual sunless tan that develops over 8 to 12 hours and lasts for several days.
UV Plus Beds:
UV plus beds offer all the benefits of a UV bed and more! These beds provide a more intense tanning experience with higher levels of UVB light, which allows you to achieve a darker tan in less time than a traditional UV bed.
Mystic beds utilize a patented combination of UV light, halogen light, and special filters to create a more natural-looking tan that fades more evenly than other types of beds.
Hybrid beds (also known as dual action beds) combine UV light and infrared light to promote faster tanning and deeper penetration and are ideal for those with sensitive skin or light skin.
One of the most important and often overlooked steps in safe tanning is applying sunscreen. It is crucial that you apply sunscreen regularly before and after each session to help minimize the risk of contracting skin damage and reduce the rate of skin aging.
When you apply sunscreen, you protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation, which can cause premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and even skin cancer.
The best sunscreens contain a high SPF (at least 30, but ideally SPF 50) and contain a mix of UVA and UVB protection. It is also important to apply sunscreen generously and consistently to ensure maximum protection.
At Desert Sun Tanning Salon, we provide sunscreen to our customers free of charge to ensure that you have the necessary protection to safeguard your skin.
Before you enjoy your first trip to the tanning salon, it is important to visit your doctor and have your health checked and risk factors assessed so you can ensure a safe and effective tanning experience.
During your consultation, your doctor will assess your skin type and determine your suitability for tanning. Your doctor may recommend certain modifications to your tanning routine to ensure that you are safe and effective while tanning.
To maintain a safe and effective tanning routine, follow these guidelines:
- Stay hydrated. To protect your skin and prevent dehydration and breakouts, drink lots of water both before and after your tanning sessions.
- Exfoliate your skin before each tanning session to remove dead skin cells and create a smooth, even surface for the tanner to adhere to.
- Wear loose-fitting clothing that allows your skin to breathe during your tanning sessions.
- Avoid self-tanning lotions and sprays as they may interfere with your tanning results.
Desert Sun Tanning Benefits
There are many benefits associated with regular tanning, including increased confidence, improved mood, increased vitamin D levels, and improved sleep.
Additionally, regular tanning can help reverse the signs of aging, improve your skin’s texture and tone, and protect your skin from sun damage and premature aging.
Once you’ve achieved a healthy and long-lasting tan, you can maintain its appearance by using a daily moisturizer, wearing protective clothing, and applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF daily to help prevent further damage to your skin.
A regular tanning routine is the best way to achieve a healthy and long-lasting tan, and it can have a significant impact on your physical and mental well-being.
Once you’ve achieved your desired tan, there are a few aftercare tips that can help you maintain your healthy and long-lasting tan.
When you first begin tanning, it is important to start slowly and gradually increase your tanning sessions over time. This will allow your skin time to acclimate to the tanning process and prepare it for increased UV exposure.
It is also important to regularly exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells and prevent breakouts and wear sunscreen daily to help prevent sun damage.
In addition, it is important to hydrate your skin before, during, and after your tanning sessions to prevent dehydration and breakouts.
Additionally, it is important to wear loose-fitting clothing during your tanning sessions to help minimize friction and prevent skin irritation.
Additional Tanning Options
While UV tanning beds can easily and effectively help you achieve a gorgeous, long-lasting tan, they are not the only options available at Desert Sun Tanning Salon.
We also offer other popular and effective options for achieving a sunless tan, including spray tanning and Mystic tanning beds. Spray tanning is an excellent alternative to UV tanning for those with sensitive skin or light skin.
Spray tanning involves a special solution that is applied to the skin using a spray gun. The solution is formulated to deliver a natural and even tan that fades more evenly than a UV tan.
Hybrid beds and Mystic beds are ideal for those who want to enjoy the benefits of UV tanning but don’t want to risk the potential damage associated with UV light.
These intense forms of light are far gentler than UV light, yet they still provide the same results as UV tanning.
