Sienna X Spray Tans

[Tanning Booth]

  • On your first treatment session, your therapist will ask you a number of questions and a treatment card will be completed.
  • You will then be asked to undress to your chosen dark underwear (or disposable underwear will be provided) and remove all jewellery.
  • Barrier cream will be applied to your hands, elbows, knees, feet and other dry areas to reduce tan absorption.
  • Simply follow your therapist's instructions. Spraying will take about 10 minutes.
  • The guide colour you will see will be showered off after your development time of 8 hours to reveal your natural looking Sienna X tan.

Preparation

  • Exfoliate regularly especially the night before your tan. Pay particular attention to knees, elbows, ankles and other dry areas.
  • Paint finger and toe nails, especially if you have acrylics on or similar.
  • I advise you to wax or shave 24-48 hours before treatment.
  • Any eyelash or eyebrow tinting should done 48 hours prior to your treatment. This allows the pores to close, otherwise dotting in pores may appear.
  • DO NOT moisturise or use deodorant and perfume before your tan, as they can act as a barrier.
  • I do advise a skin patch test, particularly if you have sensitive skin, or have never had a spray tan before.
  • It is advisable to remove contact lenses before the tan, to avoid contamination.
  • Remove all jewellery.

Aftercare

  • Leave the tan on for at least 8-10 hours, then shower until your guide colour runs clear, then gently pat dry.
  • Avoid excessive exercise, perspiring or getting wet during your development time. Sip drinks or use a straw.
  • Long baths or going swimming will fade your developed tan quicker.
  • Remember that your sunless tan does not have any SPF; you will need to use sun protection.
  • Moisturise daily to prolong your colour.
  • Try not to touch your skin during your tan's development time, as your palm and fingertips may stain.
  • Exfoliate after 4-5 days to encourage even fading.
  • Wear loose dark clothing and flip-flops or loose fitting shoes. Tight clothing and underwear will cause the tan to rub off during the development stage.

Frequently Asked Questions

    Where are you?

    I am based in Stafford, Staffordshire. I also cover Stone, Penkridge, Gnosall, Great and Little Haywood, Weston and Eccleshall. If your area is not mentioned, please ask.

    Why use Sienna X solutions?

    The natural ingredients in Sienna X blend together to make a unique moisturising formulation for soft and radiant skin. They include vitamins A & E, Aloe Vera, organic avocado and erythrulose. Sienna X is paraben free and not tested on animals. The solutions are beautifully fragranced and offer a range of shades to suit every skin tone.

    What is spray tanning? Why does it work?

    Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is a sugar and the active ingredient in the guide colour solution that will be sprayed onto your skin. This odourless and colourless solution interacts directly with the amino acids and proteins in the outer layer of your skin (the epidermis). Applied using a specialist low pressure spraying machine, combined with tan-optimising erythrulose, the DHA interacts with the proteins and amino acids in the outer layer of your skin to produce a golden brown colour. The colour you see at the time of your treatment is purely a guide colour for your therapist to see that your skin is evenly coloured. In eight hours time your actual tan will have developed and will be revealed after you shower.

    Is spray tanning safe?

    Yes, very safe. A Sienna X sunless tan can give you the same results as spending 10-14 days in the sun, but without the harmful effects of the sun's rays. DHA has been approved by the FDA for use in the personal care industry for over 30 years and no adverse effects have been reported other than minor skin irritations. Allergic reactions are extremely rare, however if you have experienced any reactions to self-tanning or other beauty products, please arrange a skin patch test first with your therapist.

    How long will it take?

    Your spray tan will take about ten minutes.

    How long will my tan last?

    Your tan will last approximately 5 to 7 days depending on your daily skincare regime, lifestyle and if you have exfoliated well prior to your tan. A sunless tan fades just like a tan from the sun - so as your skin sheds dead cells, your tan will fade, so it is really important to moisturise daily. The better you care for your tan, the longer it will last and the better the fade-off will be.

    Will I still need to use sun protection?

    Yes. I recommend you use a sunscreen with an SPF or 20 or more.

    How dark will I get?

    Sienna X has a range of solutions and your therapist will help you bespoke your ideal tan. Your tan results will depend on how well you tan naturally. The darker you tan in the sun, the darker you tan with Sienna X. Many people like to bespoke their tan, so it's lighter in the winter months and darker in the summer. A double exposure treatment (i.e. you have a second tanning treatment with 48 hours of your first appointment) will help you go darker with superior results.

    Consult your therapist if you...

    • are in your first trimester of pregnancy
    • have had an allergic reaction to tanning or any other skin care products
    • are asthmatic or have breathing difficulties.
