Frequently Asked Spray Tan Questions- and How to Avoid Problems Most Technicians Won't or Can't Fix

Posted by Casey Martin on

Spray Tanning is not an exact science. You must rely on yourself to read all the rules and do your research. Bluntly speaking, spray tan technicians should not have to (and most just will not) fix something due to improper post or pre-tan procedures if the instructions have been provided, simply because many spray tan problems can't just be "fixed". And you can't just "redo" a recent tan. Tan stains the dead skin cells until they shed off. Tanning over a tan to "fix" a problem can make all areas darker- the lighter area will get darker, but so will the area that still has tanner on it. It is not necessarily going to blend like make-up. This is not meant to scare you off or deter you from getting a spray tan. Spray tans are awesome! But most people are getting them for an important event. And we want you to be well-prepared so you can have the perfect tan you imagined. So make sure you chose a technician or location with clear before and after instructions and ask your technician questions during your tan to clear up any confusion. Always do a trial run before an important event so you will know what to expect.

Think of this wand like a finger-trap sized vacuum, because that's about what it looks like. The outer rim of the "trap" allows for detachable abrasive diamond tips in different sizes and shapes, and the inside of the "trap" is a vacuum that sucks up the dead skin cells scraped off by the diamond tip.
