FAQ's

  • How often can I use the tanning booth?
    You may tan once during a 24 hour period per the FDA regulations. For example if you tan at 2pm on Wednesday, you cannot come tan again until 2pm on the next day, Thursday.
  • Do I need to use eyewear?
    YES! Eyewear is required when tanning in a UV booth/bed. UV light can penetrate the skin on your eyelids causing damage. It is not sufficient to simply close your eyes when tanning. Same concept as wearing sunglasses when you're outdoors.
  • Why should I use lotion?
    Using tanning lotion not only enhances your tan, but it also provides nutrients for your skin. We like to keep inventory of tanning lotions that contain top of the line skin ingredients to help with anti-aging, color correcting, hydration, and more. Keeping your skin moisturized is key to maintaining a longer lasting tan.
  • How many minutes can I tan for?
    If it is your first time indoor tanning or you haven't tanned in a while, we recommend starting at half the time or based on your skin type per the Fitzpatrick Scale. After that, we recommend increasing your time by 1-2 minutes as long as your skin is not burning. **If you believe you can tan for the full time and it is your first time tanning with us or you haven't been tanning in a while, you may sign a Full Time Request waiver to bypass our recommendations.
  • How old can I be to tan?
    The FDA law requires a person to be at least 17 years old to UV tan. Those who are 17 will need a parent or guardians permission and signature at their first visit.
  • How do tanning memberships work?
    Tanning memberships are the most cost effective for those who tan regularly! Our tanning memberships require 3 full monthly payments (HT to Go requires 6 full months) . After you fulfil the the required payments, you may cancel at any time as long as it is before the 25th of the month. For example, if you sign up on January 12th you will be pro-rated for the rest of the month. Your 3 payments will then be February, March, and April. You will be debited on the 1st of each month. If you decide you do not want to continue tanning after April, you will need to cancel by April 25th. However, if you did want to continue to tan after your 3 months, you may keep your membership rolling as long as you like! **Please keep in mind, if your credit card is declined on the 1st of the month for whatever reason, you will be assessed a $25 decline fee due to the charges the salon will incur. You may change the card that we have on file on your account at any time. **As stated above, HT to Go memberships require 6 full payments.
  • When do I need to cancel my membership?
    After you fulfill 3 or 6 payments depending on your membership type, you are eligible to cancel by the 25th of your third or sixth month. If you are continuing past month 3 or 6, it is by the 25th of each month there after.
  • What's the difference between airbrushing and a spray tan?
    Airbrushing is done by a certified technician and is done by appointment only. Spray tans are done by a booth and can be done at any time during our business hours. We take spray tans up to 30 minutes before closing.
