UV tanning beds rely on both UVA and UVB rays to encourage melanin production. Spending 7-12 minutes in a UV tanning bed can improve your mood and energy, in addition to your skin tone. That’s because UV tanning promotes the production of vitamin D and serotonin.
Since UV tanning mimics a natural sun tan, we recommend a couple of appointments per week to maintain your desired shade. You’ll notice your skin darkening in the first 3-5 sessions, however.
Sunless tanning is a great option for tanners who want quick results or are looking for more control over their tanning shade. UV tanning allows your skin to darken naturally. You can control duration and use tanning lotions to achieve your desired result, but your tan will be dependent on your starting shade and your body’s melanin production.
The shade of your spray tan can be easily adjusted since it causes a temporary change to the surface of your skin.
