/ Why Choose Complexion?
Ever used a sub bed but found yourself getting little to no results? This problem most often has to do with the bulbs. While tanning bulbs may turn on and light for up to 10,000 hours, their effectiveness begins to seriously diminish after just 1,000 hours. At Complexion Med Spa, we make it a top priority to consistently replace our bulbs at a maximum of 500 hours of use, so that you will always achieve the results you are looking for.

/ How to get the best tan possible and sun beds that work best for your skin type
So far, we’ve talked about how tanning beds work and discussed their benefits and risks. Now, you’re ready to find out how you can get the bronzed glow you want.
Here are our top tips for getting a great tan when using our sun beds:
Before you tan, be sure to exfoliate your skin in the shower or bath and then. You might also want to put on an indoor tanning lotion before you start your tanning session.
Know Your Skin Type
For indoor tanning purposes, there are six skin types, with type one being the lightest and type six being the darkest. People with type one skin should generally only use low-pressure lamps for just a couple minutes at a time, while people with type six skin can usually use high-pressure lamps for longer periods of time. As a general rule of thumb, your first tanning sessions should be no longer than six minutes, or fewer if you have very fair skin.
Use Eye Protection
Proper eye protection is absolutely crucial, as a lack of adequate protection can cause serious damage to your eyes. At Complexion Med Spa, we provide you with a sanitized pair of goggles to use during your tanning session. Just remember, regular sunglasses or other types of DIY protection are inadequate.
Extend Your Tan Between Sessions
Attention: For skin conditions ONLY! Clients with skin conditions such as Acne or Psoriasis, should not use lotions and should only use tanning beds that offer U.V. B rays (low-pressure sun beds) to dry their skin and reduce the appearance of unwanted conditions.
Tanning lamps fall into 2 major categories:
Low-Pressure and High-Pressure
Low-Pressure lamps emit a more balanced mix of UVA and UVB light. Helps prepare for outdoor sun exposure such as vacations to help build a good base tan which prevents sunburn from the natural sun.
High-Pressure lamps emit almost exclusively UVA light. Delivers a more intense tanning experience within a shorter period of time. In general, this makes high-pressure lamps too powerful for very light/pale skin tones. It is good for building a quick tan for things like upcoming social events such as wedding, birthday party, etc.
UVA rays penetrate the skin deeper than UVB rays can. UVA rays reach the lower layers of the epidermis and produce melanocytes, which produce melanin, and melanin is the pigment responsible for tanning, which essentially tans your skin. Also, because UVA light penetrates deeper into the skin, it generally does not cause sunburns or redness.
UVB rays don’t penetrate the skin as much as UVA rays. They mostly affect the outer layers of the skin. UVB rays can be more damaging to the skin depending on your skin type and overexposure. Overexposure to this type of UV light may cause sunburn. Typically, tanning beds emit fewer UVB rays in comparison to the natural rays of the sun.

/ Frequently Asked Questions
IS UV TANNING SAFE?
Yes, but just like everything else, moderation is key. And too much of anything is never a good thing. The US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) regulations prohibit more than 1 tanning session in a single day.
Our staff of certified technicians will also work with you to determine what is a safe amount of UV exposure for you based on your skin type.
DO I HAVE TO WEAR EYEWEAR?
SHOULD I USE AN INDOOR TANNING LOTION?
It is particularly important for individuals with sensitive skin to use a tanning lotion when tanning indoors so that they can protect fair skin and also help to prevent burning and painful after effects that can accompany skin damage from burning.
We offer a quality line of lotions, moisturizers, and accelerators to keep your skin from drying out while tanning.
