HELPFUL INFORMATION

Sun Tanning
Tanning of the skin is how the human body naturally protects itself from exposure to UV radiation from the sun or artifical sources. More information can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_tanning.

Skin Type
Dermatologists have categorized people into six different skin types based on the Fitzpatrick Scale (more info can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fitzpatrick_scale) which start with the lightest and work up to the darkest. Our staff will distribute all new clients with a questionnaire based on this skin typing process. It is used to help identify the client's skin type and helps with estimating the number of sessions generally required for the client to establish a base tan and how long the client can typically be in the various tanning unit without experiencing sunburn. The client should be aware of their given skin type and maximum exposure time on the tanning units used when tanning indoors.

Skin Typing Chart

Tanning and Medications
Clients that are taking any medications or supplements should research if those items have the potential to create a photosensitive reaction. Agents that have photosensitizing properties could cause the client's skin to react negatively when exposed to UV radiation. Symptoms may include itchiness, rash, and burns. The client should always be aware of photosensitive medications and agents, and should consult with their physician before being exposed to UV light and radiation.

Photosensitizing Materials
As always, please consult with your physician before being exposed to UV light and radiation. A large number of photosensitizing materials is documented in the information below, however, it is not complete. Before using the list, you should be aware of the following:

1.) Not all people who use or take these medications may experience a photosensitive reaction. An individual who experiences a photosensitive reaction on one occasion may not experience every time or again.
2.) A medication may not cause the same reaction in all individuals.
3.) Brand names are provided as example and are not representative of all names which the generic product may be sold.

The following article lists five tips for healthy skin from the Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/adult-health/in-depth/skin-care/art-20048237

Tanning and Your Eyes
The FDA requires that you wear compliant protective eyewear while you are in a tanning bed. This is why our staff checks to ensure you have protective eyeware with you before each visit and to remind you to wear them while tanning.

Protective Eyewear Compliance
Federal law requires indoor tanning eyewear protection transmit less than 0.1 percent of UVB (blocking 99.9%), and less than 1 percent of UVA (blocking 99%) as proved in carefully controlled tests by the manufacturer. How do you know if your eyewear is compliant? Look to see if the manufacturer certifies the product is in compliance with 21 CFR 1040.20; if the package and material does not state this compliance, contact the manufacturer. We suggest you dispose of and do not use any questionable eyewear and replace it with a product that is compliant. All of the protective eyewear we offer for sale meet the 21 CFR 1040.20 compliance requirement.
