Mystic Spray Tanning

WHAT IS MYSTIC HD TAN? 

It’s a private, self-contained system that employs a revolutionary spray-on process that uses sweeping side to side airbrush motion (and Magnetan Technology) to apply uniform amounts of Mystic HD Tan tanning mist to the entire body in just seconds.

 

The Mystic HD Tan system utilizes personal, single-use cartridges that can be blended to create the perfect combination for all skin types and desired results. Systems equipped w/HD technology add heat to your tanning experience, plus an added drying feature during the application process.  Heating conditions the skin for maximum absorption and provides a more inviting experience.  Your Mystic HD tanning experience can be further enhanced with our assortment of additives, including boosters, accelerators, and scents.


WHAT IS MAGNETAN TECHNOLOGY? 

Magnetan application technology is mystic’s patented process that uses the human body’s own magnetic properties to attract Mystic HD Tan tanning mist to every exposed surface of the skin.  When Mystic HD Tan tanning mist passes through the spray nozzles, the micro-particles of mist are polarized, taking on the characteristics of “tiny magnets.”  These particles adhere evenly, and in a precise uniform amount to the exposed skin to create a smooth, even, natural-looking tan. 

 

WHAT IS MYSTIC TAN TANNING MIST?

The Mystic Tan tanning mysts are self-tanning formulations designed especially for use in Mystic Tan systems. They contain DHA, the fda approved active ingredient that produces the long-term tan effect. When applied, DHA reacts with the proteins in the skin’s superficial layer to form a golden brown color. Your skin begins to darken two to three hours after application and reaches its peak color within 24 hours. The color will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun. 

 

Mystic Tan offers several choices of tanning mist in clear formulations. If an instant tan is desired, add mystic’s bronzer additives. These are water soluble, bronzing cosmetics that produce an instant tan. The bronzer is a temporary cosmetic color that washes off in the shower or bath without affecting your ultimate tan. 

 

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR IN THE MYSTIC TAN? 

Most people wear nothing. Since the room is completely private, going for an all-over treatment is completely up to you. However, if you do wear a bathing suit or underwear, please note that it may become stained. The Insta-Color Bronzer used in the bronzer additives is water-soluble and should wash out, but the DHA may permanently stain what you wear during the tanning session.

 

SHOULD I COVER MY HAIR WHILE TANNING IN THE MYSTIC TAN

Most of our customers wear a disposable shower cap (provided by us) to keep hair dry. Other customers choose to get their treatment without covering their hair. The Mystic Tan tanning mist does not penetrate the hair follicle. However, if you use a bronzer additive and have very light or white hair, it may become temporarily stained.

 

WILL MY SKIN BE WET WHEN I STEP OUT OF THE MYSTIC TAN?

If any excess moisture remains on the skin’s surface after the session, simply use a towel to remove it. Towel off completely just as you do when you shower. This won’t streak your tan. (Systems equipped w/HD technology minimize the need to towel off after each session).

 

HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT AFTER A SESSION BEFORE SHOWERING? 

To give the DHA enough time to fully set, we recommend waiting a minimum of 4 hours after a Mystic HD Tan session. Showering sooner may diminish the intensity of the tan. If you tanned using a bronzer additive, the Insta-Color Bronzer will wash off in the shower, but the DHA that creates your longer-lasting tan will remain. 

 

WILL SWIMMING AFFECT MY TAN? 

Swimming in chlorinated water or salt water can fade the Mystic HD Tan results, cause possible streaking and will diminish the length of your tan. However, normal activities such as bathing, showering or physical activities will not affect the quality of the tan.

 

Cocktail Tanning

What? A combination of a sunbed tan followed immediately by a sunless session.

Why? Sunbed tanning uses UV rays to trigger melanin production, while opening up your pores and allowing the sunless spray solution to penetrate your skin. This produces an even darker, deeper and longer-lasting tan.

 

Versa Spa

Can I swim, shower, and workout with my VersaSpa sunless tan?

Of course! But be sure to wait at least 4 hours to allow the formula to react with your skin’s amino acids and proteins. In fact, the longer you allow the solution to remain on your skin, the longer lasting your tan will be. Finally, swimming in highly chlorinated water will significantly reduce your results.

Will the VersaSpa Bronzing Formula stain my hair or clothing?

The VersaSpa Sunless Bronzing formula is completely water soluble. Users may notice some initial cosmetic color on the inside of their clothing, but this color will wash out in cold water.

What’s in the VersaSpa Sunless Bronzing Formula that makes me tan?

DHA, dihydroxyacentone, combined with anti-aging, skin firming ingredients is the main compound that produces a customized bronze glow. DHA has been an approved cosmetic additive by the FDA for over 30 years. Versa Spa chemists have refined the technology to produce the most outstanding formulation that results in silky smooth, glowing skin with a refreshing after scent.

Is VersaSpa safe?

The FDA has approved DHA as a topical application and recommends that users should avoid inhaling or ingesting DHA. As a result, Versa Spa emits the least amount of solution necessary to achieve a full body tan, thus decreasing the amount of inhalable mist for a more pleasant experience. Furthermore, Versa Spa users are encouraged to use protective measures to eliminate ingestion such as: using protective eyewear, nose filters, and sealing lips with lip balm; and the use of disposable undergarments.
