Frequently Asked Questions

What is the basic premise of VersaSpa?
The VersaSpa allows just about any person to step into a private booth, be gently sprayed with a fine mist, and come out with a beautiful golden brown tan. The tan is evenly applied to the body and lasts about a week. The process is completely safe, UV free, and takes only about a minute.

What is the marketplace for VersaSpa?
 According to the 2008 Edition of the Looking Fit Fact Book: “Indoor tanning is a multi-billion-dollar a year industry with over 25 million customers who actively tan indoors each year!” UV-free tanning represents the safest and fastest growing segment of the market.

What makes the VersaSpa machine better than the competition?
First and foremost the VersaSpa uses a completely different technology than any other booth on the market.  The VersaSpa uses an HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) to deliver the fine mist the client.  The result is an experience and customer satisfaction rating that rises well above the older style spray booths on the market.

How much does it cost the consumer to use VersaSpa?

How does it work?
Sunless tanning products work by creating a chemical reaction with the top layers of skin. Dihydroxyacetone or DHA sugars react naturally with the protein in skin to create that tan, golden color tanners are seeking. MagicTan uses a DHA self-tanner and a bronzer blend to give you the streak-free golden tan you want - no matter what your skin type. We have also added aloe and moisturizers to keep your skin healthy and golden brown, so you can look good and feel great! Thanks to advances in technology, there's no longer any reason for any person to go through life looking pale and unhealthy.

How is the tanning solution applied to the skin?
The MagicTan booth is a full-body, DHA tanning process that utilizes a new misting HVLP technology. This is a revolutionary process that allows the booth to apply a uniform amount of tanning solution to all parts of the body. As the VersaSpa solution passes through the booth’s nozzles, the particles of solution are polarized making it cover all surfaces of the skin evenly. When the tanning process is complete, the user simply steps out of the booth, towels-off any excess solution, gets dressed, and exits. The result is a uniform, natural-looking tan in minutes.

Does it turn the skin orange?
No! In the past, self-tanners gave many individuals an unnatural orange glow and caused streaking. Most of these undesirable results were caused by improper or ineffective application techniques. Applying cremes and lotions by hand usually results in excessive amounts being absorbed in the skin. Excessive amounts applied in a single application can give an orange glow to the skin. Unnatural dark spots may also appear in dry or thick skinned areas such as elbows, knees, and knuckles because these areas have a tendency to absorb more of the creme. Hand held spray-on applicators tend to run and cause streaking. This new misting technology used to apply the MagicTan tanning solution assures that all areas of the body get a uniform coating of the solution in the exact quantity required to produce a golden brown tan.

What about people with fair skin that have never been able to tan?
The VersaSpa tanning booth was designed especially for individuals who can't or don't want to tan conventionally.

Do people with hair on their legs/arms, develop a uneven tan where hair is present?
No. People with hair on their bodies will see tiny droplets of mist on their hairs at the end of the tanning process. These droplets are removed during toweling off and the same even, golden brown tan is achieved.

What if I have a bald spot ? 
If I wear a shower cap my bald spot will be white and my face brown !
As it isn't necessary to wear a shower cap for the misting process (it doesn't affect the color of your hair in any way - even if you have grey hair) you can go into the booth without a cap and even your bald spot will get that great tan !

What should people wear in the tanning booth?
Many people do not wear anything. The room is completely private, so tanning in the nude is perfectly acceptable. However, if a bathing suit, underwear, or anything else is worn, it may be stained. The bronzer we use for initial color is water-soluble and should wash out of any clothing, but the DHA applications may cause permanent stains on any clothing worn inside the booth.

How many times does a person need to use the VersaSpa to achieve the color they want?
A person will be tan after one session, but it may take an additional session or two to achieve their desired color. Once they reach the desired color, they should be able to maintain it by tanning every four to five days.

Does VersaSpa give an even tan, or will some parts of the body be darker?
The VersaSpa tanning booth is designed to provide the most even tan possible. However, tanners will be different heights and shapes, and may stand in different positions. It is possible that some people will find some areas of their tan lighter than others will. In most cases, this difference disappears after several tanning sessions.

Will it make the user feel sticky like lotions do?
No. Once the user leaves the VersaSpa booth, their skin will feel soft and pliable because of the moisturizing components. It will not feel sticky.

Does the user need to cover their hair during use?
No. Many consumers wear disposable shower caps, which are provided by the salon, to keep the solution from getting in their hair. Other consumers tan without covering their hair. The solution will not penetrate the hair follicles.

Is the user wet when getting out of the booth?
The mist applied in theVersaSpa tanning booth is very fine, much like the mist floating in the air on a foggy day. In addition, the VersaSpa is the only unit on the market that actually dries the customer off prior to completion.  By the time the user steps out of the booth they are completely dry.  

How long after the tanning session can the user put his or her clothes back on?
Once the user has exited the VersaSpa there is little chance of the bronzer or DHA getting on his or her clothes. If they pursue any strenuous physical activity after your MagicTan tanning session, perspiration may cause some of the bronzer to transfer to their clothing. Since the bronzer is completely water-soluble, it should wash out.

Does this system cause freckles in people who usually freckle when tanning?
No. There is nothing in the VersaSpa tanning solution that will cause more freckles to break out. In fact, in most cases, freckles and blemishes will become less pronounced because the lighter skin areas will darken and reduce the color differentiation between the freckles and the rest of the skin.

Will the user get a darker tan if they tan twice in the same day?
Yes, tanning twice in the same day will create a darker tan, but we do not recommend back to back sessions. Tanning back to back does not give the DHA a chance to set between tans, and increases the chance that your tan may have an orange glow. Waiting 12 to 24 hours between tans will eliminate this potential problem.

How soon after the tanning session can the user shower?
We recommend that the user wait at least 4 to 6 hours  after tanning to give the DHA enough time to fully set. Showering earlier may diminish the intensity of the tan. When they do shower the initial tan created by the water-soluble bronzer will wash off, but the DHA will remain and create a long term tan.

Can VersaSpa  users also use the sun and UV-tanning beds?
Yes. There is nothing in the VersaSpa tanning solution that would prevent users from tanning in tanning beds or the sun. In fact, a number of customers have found that tanning with UV rays and the VersaSpa tanning solution actually gives them a better overall tan. Remember, however, that the VersaSpa tanning process does not give protection from UV rays.
