The Ultimate Tan & Med Spa offers customized airbrush tanning and uv-free spray tanning at all locations.
Airbrush Tanning is a process by which a DHA based solution is airbrushed on to the skin via hand held spray applicator. When the airbrush tanning solution is sprayed onto the skin, a safe, natural, sunless tan develops and lasts for between one and two weeks. Sunless tanning solutions contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA), an ingredient approved by the FDA, which reacts with the natural amino acids in the top layer of your skin, producing the best looking sunless bronze tan. The pigments resulting from a spray tan do not provide UV protection. The DHA airbrush tanning solution is applied while the client stands in either a booth, or in a pop up spray tan tent. With most solutions the deepest tan color is reached within about 8 hours, so the color will continue to darken after the initial application. Airbrush tanning solutions also typically have a bronzer that provides an immediate tan effect. When using an airbrush or spray gun, this instant color helps ensure even coverage. In this age of immediate gratification, solutions that include instant bronzing are popular with most clients. Most of this added bronzer will come off in the first shower/bath after application. The color that remains is produced by the DHA reacting with the skin, aka, your airbrush tan.
Customized airbrush tanning is available at our Wilsonville, Sherwood, Tigard, Hillsboro, Newberg and McMinnville locations by appointment.
