Pre & Post Treatment Care

48 hours before:
  • Any waxing treatments must be received at least 24 hours before using a sunbed.
On the day:
  • Before using the sunbeds for the first time, you must complete a consultation card, which we will check to see whether you are suitable for treatment. You must subsequently inform us of any changes to your information prior to future appointments.
  • We recommend using a quality tanning accelerator like ‘Australian Gold’. It is one of the best brands for sunbeds and UV tanning, and available for purchase in the salon. This optimises skin quality and protects again skin dehydration and ageing. Using a cream will not diminish all the risks associated with sunbeds, but it is safer to use a sunbed with sunbed lotion than it is to use a sunbed without sunbed lotion. A tanning accelerator also helps your tan develop and last longer, reducing the number of sunbed sessions you need to maintain your tan. Do not use outdoor tanning products.
  • Only you can enter the sunbed room – you must not take anyone into the room with you.
  • You must wear your eye protection.
  • Contact lenses must be removed prior to your tanning session.
  • Shower before sunbed sessions to make sure your skin is free from perfumes, deodorants and any medicated creams.
  • Ensure the tanning unit has been sanitised before use using the sunbed cleaning products provided.
  • Your session time needs to reflect your skin type and your current tan status. Ask a member of staff for advice on how many minutes suit your skin type and to get a Tan Plan.
  • It is recommended that a minimum of 24 hours lapse between each session for skin types 3-6.
  • The recommended minimum time lapse for skin type 2 is 48 hours.
  • No double sessions. (This includes sunbathing on the same day as a sunbed session.)
  • Please look after your skin, exfoliate regularly and use a quality moisturiser daily. It is essential in maximising the lifespan of your tan and making sure your skin is well maintained.
