A tanning salon is a facility that is engaged in the business of offering pale skinned people the opportunity to achieve a darker skin color without exposing themselves to the sun. Tanning Salons usually house several tanning beds where people lie for a definite period to darken their skin tone. But there are other services offered by a good tanning spa and salon. These services promise to make you feel good and transform your appearance into one that people will adore.
Here are the services that you should look out for in a good tanning salon and spa
Infra Red Sauna
An infrared sauna is a facility that uses infrared heaters to heat the surfaces in a sauna room. Infra Red Saunas heat and allow the body to produce sweat better than rooms that emit hot air.
Infra red saunas also facilitate the penetration of infrared light through skin tissue. This helps to provide several health benefits including relaxation, anti-aging, detoxification, improved circulation and skin purification.
Skin tanning is actually caused by exposing the skin to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. But for indoor tanning services, the use of sunbeds is necessary. A sunbed is a tanning appliance that is fitted with a lamp that emits ultraviolet rays that facilitates tanning of the skin.
One of the most common benefits of UV tanning is its ability to increase the body's supply of vitamin D. This substance plays a great role in the body's absorption of calcium, a mineral that helps to keep teeth and bones healthy and strong.
Airbrush tanning or spray tanning, is a tanning process that does not require ultraviolet rays. It simply consists of a tanning solution that is applied to the skin with the use of an airbrush or with a High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) tanning equipment.
The tanning solution contains dihydroxyacetone (DHA). It is a DFA-approved component that reacts naturally with the amino acids of the skin. When applied, the solution develops a bronze tan that can last for up to two weeks.
Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy is a unique form of treatment that uses infrared light to heal many forms of skin problems. Discovered by the National Aeronautics and space Administration or NASA, the red light therapy allows infrared light to penetrate deep into the skin which in turn provides several therapeutic benefits including anti-aging, smoothing of the skin, pain relief, improved circulation, fast healing of cuts and wounds, and prevention of scar tissue formation.
