Sun Bed FAQ's

1. How long does it take to get a tan?

This varies with individual skin types. A fair person may need 3 to 5 sessions to see noticable results and a dark person may need 1 to 2 sessions. At Oasis Sun our salon staff have been trained to assist you in acheiveing a beautiful tan so you can look as good as your tan makes you feel!

2. How often should I tan to get my base tan and then maintain it?

To build your base tan we recommend that you schedule your sessions no sooner than 24hrs apart and within 4 days apart for your first 3 or 4 sessions or until your desired color is achieved. To maintain a tan for light complected individuals we suggest one session every 5 - 7 days, and for dark complected individuals one session every 7 -9 days.

3.  How long does one session take?

This will vary on individual skin types and which bed you use. Fair skinned individuals usually start with low minutes and darker complected individuals typically go for longer sessions. The type of bed being used also determines how many minutes you will be using. On less intense beds a full session is 20 minutes. Low beds are gentle and tan you with a deeper tan and longer lasting tan while High beds are a quick color.

4.  Is tanning safe?

It is important to understand that building your base tan is smart tanning and burning your skin is not smart tanning and not considered a safe way to get a tan. It is also important to understand that like air, water and food, tanning is natural and esstential to human life. It is our mission to teach our clients to correctly embrace sunshine as part of a healthy-life style! It is also imporatnat to acknowledge that moderate ultra-violet light exposure when experienced in a non-burning fashion is the smartest way to maximize the benefits of UV light while minimizing the manageable potential risks associated with either too much or too little UV Light exposure.
