  • 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.
