Sunless Tan

Maximum Tan offers Versa Spa as its premier sunless tanning system. Versa Spa is hands down the best sunless tanning system in the world! It will produce an instant tan and is 100% UV free. Although you will get some instant color, the majority of your tan takes 6 hours to develop. You can customize your Versa Spa tan by choosing light, medium or dark. A ph-balancing pre-tan preparation spray and post tan moisturizer spray are also available. This will help the tan absorb better and fade more evenly.

 

Pre-tan instructions

  • Shower, shave and exfoliate prior to your visit.
  • Don’t put on any make-up, lotion, or perfume.
  • Wear loose dark clothing; prior to your 1st shower your sunless tan may rub off on clothing.
  • Remove all jewelry before your session.

 

After care instructions

  • Don’t shower, get wet or sweat for at least 6 hours.
  • Once you shower make sure you moisturize daily, this will make your tan fade more evenly and last longer. We recommend specially formulated moisturizer made by Versa Spa.
  • Chlorinated pools, hot tubes and salt water may cause your tan fade quicker.
  • We recommend waiting at least 7 days before coming back for your next spray tan.
  • Stay in older clothing before showering to prevent stains. If you choose to leave it on overnight, use older bedding as well.

 

What to expect after your tan?

  • When you first shower you may see your cosmetic bronzer come off in the shower. Don’t panic, this is normal! When doing the Versa Spa there are two bronzers in the solution; one is an instant cosmetic bronzer that washes away and the other is DHA bronzer. DHA or dihydroxacentone will darken over a 24 hour period; this is the main bronzer that gives you your natural looking tan. DHA is FDA approved and considered safe for topical application.
  • You may feel slightly wet or tacky until your first shower.
  • Your tan generally looks best after your 1st shower. Everyone is different, but when planning for an event, we recommend coming in 1-2 days before.
  • Although unlikely, under certain circumstances sunless tan may still rub off on clothing after your 1st shower. This is more common with people who exercise more frequently.
  • The more you shower and shave, the faster your tan will come off. As your skin naturally exfoliates, your tan will begin to fade.

 

How about a Double Dip!
One way to get magnificent color quickly is to do what we call the double dip. This is using one of our UV tanning beds in conjunction with the Versa Spa. The results are amazing and is the perfect solution for someone wanting instant color. You would first use one of our UV-tanning beds (we recommend level 3 or higher) and then go right into the Versa Spa.
