Frequently Asked Questions.
How Long Does A Sunbed Tan Take To Develope?
This is something that varies from person to person and it depends on various factors such as the skin type, the frequency of the sessions and the type of tanning equipment or the power of the lamps that each salon or tanning studio uses. Usually you will be able to see results after 3-5 sessions but you can gain a good base tan after 6-10 sessions.
How Long Does A Sunbed Tan Last?
The outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, replaces the upper cells every 28-30 days. It takes 4 weeks for the cells to move to the surface and ‘slough off’. So this means that your tan can last approximately 2-4 weeks after your last session.
How Frequently Can I Use Sunbeds?
The tanning process ranges from person to person and it depends on the type of skin. Tanning on a regular basis within the safety tanning guidelines will enable you to see results and will prevent your tan from fading. It is advisable to allow a minimum of 24 hours between tanning sessions and 48 hours for skin type 2. Do not use any tanning equipment more than once on the same day! Repeat the tanning session to build up your tan gradually. However, it is recommended not to exceed the number of 60 sessions per year.
What Is The Age Limit For Sunbed Use?
The minimum age to tan in the UK is 18 and no one under the age of 18 is allowed to enter any tanning room or use any UV tanning equipment. A salon is fully in its rights to ask for ID if someone looks young and under the age of 18.
How Can I Protect My Tattoo While Tnaning?
After having a tattoo you should wait at least one month (preferably 4-6 weeks) for your tattoo to heal completely before going on a sunbed, if you don’t want to see it fading too soon. After the healing process, it is recommended to use a sun block product on this area, a special cream or alternatively you can cover your tattoo with clothing or a bandage. In any case, you should make sure that your tattoo is protected by the UV rays which cause damage to the ink. We recommend Devoted Creations which can be found in our products. page
