The active ingredient in the airbrush tanning DHA-dihydroxyacetone derived from sugar cane interacts with the proteins and amino acids in the outer layer of your skin to produce a golden brown color, this reaction takes 4 to 8 hours to visibly emerge into a golden tan. It then continues to develop over the next 24 hours. The color that results varies slightly from individual to individual, just as UV tans will differ, according to natural skin tones. This is different than the UVA and UVB rays of the sun that stimulate the melanin pigment in the skin.
The airbrush tanning produces this golden brown color without skin damage. The airbrush tanning works on the top layer of the skin only and will shed, or fade like a suntan over several days. The way the tan fades is dependent on the way each person naturally exfoliates his or her skin.
The longer and more regularly you spray tan, the better the tanning effect will wear.
The airbrush tan is applied by a certified airbrush tanning technician who tailors the service to your body.
