Here is a list of frequently asked questions that will help you decide if spray tanning is for you. If you have any further question please do not hesitate to contact Mens Body Works.

How does a spray tan work?
A trained therapist will apply the tanning solution to your body by using an airgun. Your tan is custom made as the solution adjusts to your skin type according to how it reacts to the natural agents that make up the solution.

How long will my tan last?
Instant gratification is guaranteed, but your tan will continue to develop over the next 24 hours and last up to 7 days [and this all depends on your lifestyle]. If you're active and therefore perspire and shower more than usual, then your tan will fade quicker. A lot also depends on the preparation before your tan that is why we recommend a body scrub beforehand.

Is it safe?
Safer than the harmful UV Rays of the sun, that's for sure. DHA [Dihydroxyacentone] is the main ingredient of the tanning solution and it has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic applications. Our treatment room is well ventilated therefore minimising any breathing discomfort.

How long will it take?
The application is fast, effective and easy. Allow at least 20minutes from start to finish.

What should I wear during the treatment?
As our treatment room is completely private most people wear nothing for an even all-over tan. If you prefer to wear briefs we will supply disposable underwear for you.

Will my skin look orange?
Not at all. The quality of the spray tan solution is of the highest quality and the fact that it is being applied by spray and not as a lotion by hand will elliminate a build up in one area which causes the orange effect.

Will I smell afterwards?
Some people will notice a slight starchy smell on their skin a few hours after a spray tan, but it does wear off. This is just the DHA reacting to the proteins in your skin.

Will swimming effect my tan?
Swimming in chlorinated or salt water can cause streaking as well as dimish the length of your tan.

How soon after my tan can I wear clothes?
You can wear clothes within minutes, just allow it to touch dry. It doesn;t, however, permanently stain clothing but it recommended you wear lose clothes on the day.
