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

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.

Is financing available?
Yes, for qualified buyers. You will have the option to fully
finance your purchase either through conventional purchase
finance terms or through third party leasing - which may give
you some tax and cash flow advantages.
How much does it cost the consumer to use VersaSpa?
Our recommended price for consumer use is $25 per session.
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 booths 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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
