Sunless Tanning / Airbrush Tanning

How would you like to have a gorgeous tan and glow without the damage from the sun? Airbrush and Sunless tanning is the safest option for this and a new fad now that people are aware of the damaging sun factors.

Let’s explore the different options for self-tanning:

At home, where you purchase a bottle from the pharmacy and apply it in the comfort of your own home. The downside to this – it’s messy and leaves you streaky. Most of the over-the-counter formulas are “one size fits all” and they may leave you with an orange tone or too dark or not dark enough for your skin tone. And… my not so favorite, they are smelly 🙁

Another option is going to the tanning salon and utilizing their stand-up spray tanning machine. If you’re like me, it’s scary and cold and drippy and wet and I am left with running tan lines from the excess spray. I never know which color combination to choose from and usually, the girl at the front desk does not know which one to recommend for my skin tone. Not to mention the anxiety of when that spray is going to hit you! :0

Then we have airbrush tanning. In airbrush tanning, each client has their airbrush tan applied by highly skilled and trained airbrush tanning specialists who carefully spray their entire body evenly and beautifully. Airbrush tanning is better all the way around because it won’t leave your skin streaky nor uneven. The tan is better applied specifically for your body, allowing it to fade evenly within two weeks. Downside? It is applied by someone else… therefore you can choose to go all “natural” or wear a bikini type cover if you are on the more modest side. 🙂


Exfoliate your entire body the night before or morning of your tanning session. Afterward NO LOTIONS OR OILS. We need super dry skin so it can absorb the solution the best. I know… not fun and feels weird, but totally worth it!

Shaving is preferred- the day before your tan or of your tanning session. Allows smooth skin to absorb the solution better.

Wear loose clothing after your tanning session that will not adhere to you for 8 hours. You do not want to sweat or sit down for long periods of time. This can make your tan dry unevenly.

Shower 8 hours afterward, just rinse and soap, no exfoliating, no sponges, etc… And! VOILA! You are a tan god/goddess!

Apply oils and lotions daily to help extend your tan. We have several expert secrets here at the Medispa which we will share with you on how to make the most out of your tan.
