This is a common question we get from first time Tanners as well as experienced tanners starting from scratch.
Many have a preconceived notion that in order not to burn, it is best to start in a low intensity bed and gradually work their way up to a stronger one. Although this strategy might be okay for some, it might not necessarily be the right one for you. Burning is caused by over exposure. Over exposure can occur just as easily in a low bed as it can in a stronger one. Burning has more to do with being in a sunbed too long and less to do with being in a bed that’s too strong. A tanning salon with with properly calibrated sunbeds and employees that are properly trained to administer UV light will know how long to set your timer without risking a burn regardless of the strength of the unit you use.
If your preference is to get in and out quick or you want to lay back and relax or if you have another application specific goal, our staff will help you choose the right unit and set your session for the right amount of exposure time each time you tan. We keep a complete individual tanning history for each customer. This means we’ll know exactly what to do if you haven’t come in for a while and decide to start up again.
