Red Light Therapy Tan Can FAQ
What is a collagen bed?
The Collagen Bed is a full body red light therapy. They naturally stimulate the production of Collagen and Elastin in the body and increases circulation by the formulation of new capillaries which speed up the healing process in damaged skin.
What are the benefits of red light therapy?
Red light therapy (sometimes called LLLT or low level laser therapy) involves emitting red, low-light wavelengths through the skin to stimulate cellular rejuvenation, increase blood flow, stimulate collagen and more.
The combination of lamps with red light and UV lamps in RED LIGHT THERAPY TANNING BEDS, will give you the best of both worlds – red-light for collagen repair plus ultraviolet light for vitamin D and other benefits of UV-exposure.
What is Red Light Collagen Therapy?
Originally developed by NASA to improve wound healing and tissue growth in space- as well as helping tired, fatigued astronauts on their return to earth- Red Light Therapy is photo bio stimulation by exposure to lights in the red and infrared wavelength.
How does it work?
At a wavelength of 633nm (nanometers) red light penetrates the skin 8-10mm. This penetration triggers the body to make collagen and elastin, and to generate new capillaries. The result of more collagen and elastin is firmer, tighter-looking skin, and the result of new capillaries is more circulation, which increases wound-healing and scar tissue reducing benefits. Red Light Therapy is fast becoming the safest, fastest, most painless AND most affordable way to achieve a vibrant, younger-looking skin.
Who is it suitable for?
For tanner’s concerned about anti-aging benefits and deep skin rejuvenation, red light exposure therapy is suitable for everyone. It is particularly beneficial for people over the age of 25. At this age, the body gradually loses the ability to make youthful collagen, hence our appearance starts to age
Benefits of Red Light Rejuvenation Collagen Therapy
Tests on red light exposure have clearly shown at least 24 positive changes at a cellular level. Red Light Therapy is extremely effective for:
Anti-aging: stimulation of collagen and elastin fibres in the deeper layers of the dermis gives a visible smoothing effect on wrinkles, plumps the skin and improves skin elasticity, suppleness and firmness
Deep muscle tension
Acne (reducing inflammation)
Spray Tan FAQ
WHAT IS A SPRAY TAN?
A self tanning lotion is applied to the skin by means of an airbrush machine. The specially designed airbrush atomizes the self tanning lotion into a cooling vapor which is finely misted onto the skin ensuring an even streak-free application.
HOW DO SELF TANNING LOTIONS WORK?
An active ingredient in the self tanning lotion called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) causes a chemical reaction with the amino acids found in the top layer of the skin to produce a bronzed tan—very much like the sun does, but without the UVA and UVB damage.
HOW LONG WILL THIS TAN LAST?
The tan lasts between 4 to 10 days, depending on each person’s natural skin exfoliation. In dryer climates, like Johannesburg, people tend to shed skin more frequently so regular moisturizing is essential to prolong the tan.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM THE USE OF SELF TANNING LOTIONS?
There are no known harmful side effects from the use of Tan Incorporated tanning products. A small percentage of people are allergic to DHA and may break out in red spots. If you are one of these people who have previously reacted badly to self tanning lotions, it is important that you advise us when making your appointment, prior to your tanning session. As an extra precaution, we prefer not to spray self tanning lotions on pregnant women. The results may vary due to hormone levels.
Our products may not be effective on people who have been exposed to excessive sun damage, some hormone replacement therapies, steroids or drug use.
THE DO’S AND DON’TS
Do not swim in chlorinated water as it will bleach your tan. Swimming in the rough seas is not recommended as the sea and sea sand is abrasive Spray tan is highly recommended for functions. We spray many clients for evening functions, matric farewells, photo shoots, body-building competitions, brides etc. Spray tan does not offer protection against the harmful rays of the sun, so please use a sunscreen outdoors You can tan (outdoors or on a sunbed) over a spraytan application. Your skin will continue to darken as the self tanning chemical reaction works on your skin.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: HOW TO PREPARE PROPERLY BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
80% of the success of the spray tan depends on your preparation at home before the application at our Studio. Pay careful attention to the following steps as there is a great part of the process over which we do not have control. Your efforts will assist you in experiencing the most beautiful even tan.
ON THE DAY OF YOUR TANNING APPOINTMENT
You must exfoliate your entire body in the morning, or the night before your scheduled appointment . Exfoliation helps promote an even tan coverage and lengthens the duration of your tan through the removal of dead skin cells that would otherwise flake off. When you exfoliate, pay particular attention to the lower half of your legs, knees, ankles, top of feet, toes, elbows and knuckles. You can use an exfoliating cream, face cloth, scrubbing mitten or loofah and a pumice stone on feet if necessary.
It is best to shave or wax at least 8 hours before your appointment. Do not apply deodorant, make-up or moisturizer before your tan as these will act as a barrier and prevent the self tanning lotion from being properly absorbed into your skin.
WHAT TO WEAR
Wear loose fitting clothing and slops to your appointment. A dark coloured sundress is ideal – as after application some of the self tanning lotion may rub off on your clothes. While it easily washes out of most fabrics, it tends to stain light coloured nylon materials. During the application, you can wear a dark coloured costume or underwear, or you may choose to wear the disposable underwear supplied by us.
HOW MUCH TIME TO ALLOW FOR THE ACTUAL PROCESS
The actual tanning application only takes 5 minutes, but you will need an extra 5 to 10 minutes to allow for drying.
FOLLOWING THE TANNING APPLICATION
For at least 12 hours after your tan, you should:
- NOT wash your hands
- NOT wear jewellery
- NOT apply moisturizer
- NOT wear tight clothing
- NOT swim or immerse yourself in water
- NOT exercise or wear closed shoes (perspiration immediately after the tan can interfere with the DHA’s chemical reaction with the skin).
POST TAN SHOWER
Wait at least 10 – 12 hours after your tan before taking your first bath or shower.
Do not be alarmed to see colour washing off the first time you bath or shower as this is merely the surface bronzing colour. Your skin will continue to darken as the self tanning chemical reaction develops on the top layer of the skin.
MAINTAINING YOUR TAN
After your post tan shower, apply a moisturizer or oil in the morning and evening. A well hydrated skin is essential to maintaining your tan and extending its duration. Lotions containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids increase skin exfoliation, therefore the their use will accelerate the fading of your tan.
After showering or bathing, do not vigorously rub the towel against your skin ( this exfoliates) rather gently pat the towel against your skin.
