Before treatment your therapist will go through a consultation with you and assess your skin tone to determine your correct shade. You can choose from Sienna X Original spray tan or if in a hurry choose the fabulous Tonight’s the Night Express Tan.
The immediate “result” you see is, in fact, the cosmetic colour guide. Your Sienna X spray tan will develop over the next 8 hours or overnight, and your Tonight’s The Night express tan takes as little as 2 hours to develop. The tanning product reacts with the outermost layers of your skin and after showering-off the colour guide, your glorious, enviable tan will be revealed for all to admire.
For best results, it’s strongly advised to follow a few essential dos and don’ts – see below.
Any hair removal should be done at least 24 hours before your spray tan appointment. This gives your skin time to recover and avoids the risk of dotting of the tan on open pores. Treat yourself to a full-body exfoliation, paying particular attention to your feet & ankles, knees, elbows and hands.
Wear loose dark clothing after treatment and sandals or flip-flops are recommended when possible.
Ensure your body is free from moisturizer, deodorant, make-up, perfume or oils, all or any of which can interfere with the absorption of your spray tan. Part of your spray tan experience includes having some oil-free moisturizer applied to those traditional dry areas; your feet, knees, elbows and hands.
Sienna-X spray tan solutions contain plenty of skin-moisturizing ingredients to ensure your skin is left in great condition from the moment they’re applied. Wearing dark underwear, disposable undies, swimsuit or however you feel comfortable, you’ll step into our state of the art Sienna-x spray tan extraction booth, stepping out in less than 15 minutes later gloriously bronzed.
Relax while your Sienna-X spray tan develops over the next few hours, or preferably you can let it develop overnight. Please keep loose clothes on during this time, avoid contact with water, participating in any activity that may cause perspiration or applying any products to the skin.
After 8 hours or the following morning – or after 2 to 4 hours if you’ve selected ‘Tonight’s the Night’, shower off the excess colour guide with warm water and minimal soap product. Gently pat yourself dry, and apply plenty of moisturizer to your whole body, to lock-in your tan for as long as possible.
Using plenty of moisturizer after each shower will lock-in the colour and help keep your tan looking fabulous for as long as possible. Your spray tan can last between 5 and 7 days, and some clients report even longer. It all depends on your skin type, your skin preparation and your aftercare. After around 5 days, treat yourself to another gentle full body exfoliation.
This will help your tan fade evenly, and will keep your skin in great condition in readiness for your next spray tan. Your spray tan offers no protection against the sun’s natural UV rays, so please use your usual SPF sun creams.
