  • What's the point of Tanning Lotion?
    Faster Results - Moist skin absobs UV which can speed up your bodies melanin production Skin Benefits - Lotions are specifically designed to target your individual needs. They vary from anti-aging and skin tightening, anti orange, tattoo and colour fade protection, leave skin with no after tan odour, bronzers and aromatherapy to name a few. Longer Lasting - Dry skin sloughs off and can produce uneven tanning results, an after tan moisturizer or tan extender will keep your skin glowing and hydrated. Less Exposure Required - Since the tanning process starts quicker with lotion, you need less time in the tanning bed to get amazing results. Our Glaze Tanning Team members are extrmely knowledgeable and will help you choose the exact lotion that meets your individual needs.
  • Should I shower first?
    It's best to exfoliate your skin a day or two before a tanning session. A regular Loofah or Hempz Herbal body scrub is awesome for removing dead skin cells, this will help you get an even, long lasting tan. There's not much point tanning skin cells that are about to fall off. Apply a non-oil-based moisturizer right after you shower or bathe. Some moisturizers will make you more sensitive to sun light and can block UV rays in addition to ruining our tanning bed's acrylic. All the indoor lotions and moisturizers we carry at Glaze Tanning are safe to use on our equipment and will help you get the best results. You can apply your indoor tanning lotion an hour or two before you tan or in the tanning room. We give you ample time before your session to apply SPF lip balm, remove your makeup, jewelry etc. Personally, I like to do this at home but it's completely up to you. Also you can shower after your tan as the process is happening under your skin, just be aware of washing off topical or time-released bronzers as it may affect your results.
  • Why doesnt skin tan equally all over?
    Don't be surpised if you find an area of your body that doesnt tan as well as others. For example your legs may not be as dark as your stomach. This is because some areas on your body contain more pigment forming cells (cells that are able to produce melanin when exposed to UV ). This is why we recommend tan enhancing lotions, these contain accellerants (i.e. such as tyrosine) that encourages greater production of melanin. The more melanin your skin is able to produce, the darker your tan will be. We also have bronzing lotions available to give your skin an added boost.
  • Can Tanning Reduce Acne?
    "Phototherapy (or use of UV light) has been effective in easing the skin problems common to this condition. However, there are also many drugs, including tetracycline and Retin-A, widely used for the treatment of acne that can render the skin photosensitive. Therefore, one should avoid UV exposure when medicated. Treatment of acne should be administered by a qualified physician." *taken directly from Wolff System Technology Corporation’s FAQ Booklet

  • Do I Have to Wear Goggles?
    It is so important to protect your eyes we cannot stress this enough, you only get two and they need to last your lifetime. Federal Regulations require tanners to wear eye protection that protects 99.9 % of UVB and 99% of UVA rays. UV light can damage your retina, cornea and lead to cataracts. You can also lose night vision, colour perception, get headaches and dry itchy eyes. Your eyelids have almost no UV protection and a towel over your face doesn't come close to cutting it either. Do not share goggles as this can spread eye infections such as pinkeye. Also, we recommend replacing your goggels every six months or if they show any visible signs of damage. Please don't cause permanent damage for the sake of tan lines or saving a buck. We have a large a selection of eyewear that can safely reduce tanlines and also have lotions with topical bronzers. We take eye protection and your safety VERY seriously and sincerely hope you do too. This includes sunglasses that have UV protection when you're at the beach or out in the sun and not just a cheap set because they may look cool. Bottom Line here is PROTECT YOUR EYES.....
  • How long will my tan last?
    This really depends on a few things, how deep and dark your tan is and the health of your skin. If you have a base tan and your skin is quite dry your tan will likely last 1-2 weeks. If you have a dark and deep tan and you ensure your skin stays well hydrated, you can expect your tan to last up to 4 weeks. The top layer of your skin usually sheds itself over a 28 day period so unless you maintain a regular tanning routine your tan shouldn't be anticipated to last much longer than this.
  • Will spray tanning turn my skin orange?
    When a spray tan turns someone's skin orange, that is likely the result of too much DHA in the tanning solution and/or too much UV exposure. Our staff will help you pick the right tanning solution for your skin type and ensure you do the right tanning protocol to avoid the infamous orange tan.
  • What Is Red Light Therapy, and What Are the Benefits?
    Light therapy tools are often categorized by color. This is because each type of light has a specific wavelength that produces different effects on the body. In light therapy, these wavelengths matter. Red lights have the perfect wavelength for treating fine lines, wrinkles, and the skin’s texture, color, and overall complexion. Red light therapy won’t penetrate as deeply as other LEDs, such as infrared light, making it ideal for skincare regimens. Experts believe red light therapy works by strengthening mitochondria, which are responsible for producing energy in our body’s cells. Mitochondria are mainly stored in the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which helps the body use its energy. When you apply these rays to your skin, red light therapy energizes your cells to repair and rejuvenate your skin while boosting cell production. Additionally, red lights help promote blood circulation, bringing oxygen and nutrients to your skin’s surface and creating a radiant, healthy glow. Even though red light therapy is most well-known for its anti-aging benefits, you will also find red lights used in pain relief products. That’s because increased circulation from red light therapy brings more oxygen to cells and removes toxins for accelerated healing and recovery.
  • What Is Infrared Light Therapy, and What Are the Benefits?
    Light in the infrared range of the spectrum penetrates much deeper than red light to better reach nerves and muscle tissue. Infrared LED light therapy allows the cells to absorb energy and increase blood flow in the localized area. Increased blood flow can reduce inflammation associated with various conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Experts have also noted how well infrared light treatments promote neural stimulation, wound healing, and even cancer treatment. It can also support natural cellular regeneration to speed up the body’s natural healing processes. Studies have shown infrared’s effectiveness in promoting wound and injury healing. As a result, infrared light therapy products are excellent for pain relief. They are ideal for athletes hoping to recover their muscles and people struggling with tight or sore muscles and achy bones. Due to their regenerative properties, many people use infrared light for skincare and anti-aging regimens. The correct dose of infrared treatment can help reverse signs of aging and minimize scarring from acne.
  • Can Red and Infrared Light Therapy Be Combined?
    Yes, red and infrared lights can, and in most cases, should be combined. Red and infrared light therapy can be combined to deliver maximum results for people with signs of aging or for pain relief, like arthritis pain. By combining these treatments, anti-aging therapy devices can more effectively reduce signs of aging and improve the skin’s overall complexion. Additionally, most pain relief devices are created using a combination of red and infrared light. These tools provide powerful soothing and regeneration of sore muscles. Other benefits of red and infrared light therapy include: Repairs tissue Relieves muscle and joint aches Relaxes muscles Relieves pain and stiffness associated with arthritis Enhances muscle recovery Accelerates healing These devices target all body parts, relieving discomfort in the neck and head, hands, wrists, joints, and even feet. They help alleviate chronic pain caused by joint injury, arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, sprains, aches, and strains.
