VersaSpa Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Multi-Treatment Session?
A VersaSpa Multi-Treatment Session is a process of combining 2 or 3 formulations in the same session. Keep in mind that treatment sprays (Pre-Sunless pH Balancing Treatment, or Post-Sunless Super Hydrating Treatment) are all 2 passes (front and back) while Bronzing Treatment is applied in 4 passes for complete, perfect coverage. Additionally, your blow dry passes match your spray passes; therefore, a Bronzing and Super Hydrating Multi-Treatment Session will be demonstrated as:
- Bronzing - Front, Side, Side, Back Blow Dry - Back (2x), Front(2x)
- HydratinG - Front, Back Blow Dry - Back, Front
Can I swim, shower, and workout with my sunless tan?
Of course! But be sure to wait at least 4 hours to allow the formula to react with your skin's amino acids and proteins. In fact, the longer you allow the solution to remain on your skin, the longer lasting your tan will be. Finally, swimming in highly chlorinated water will significantly reduce your results.
Will the Bronzing Formula stain my hair or clothing?
The VersaSpa Sunless Bronzing formula is completely water soluble. Users may notice some initial cosmetic color on the inside of their clothing, but this color will wash out in cold water.
What's in the Sunless Bronzing Formula that makes me tan?
DHA, dihydroxyacentone, combined with anti-aging, skin firming ingredients is the main compound that produces a customized bronze glow. DHA has been an approved cosmetic additive by the FDA for over 30 years. VersaSpa chemists have refined the technology to produce the most outstanding formulation that results in silky smooth, glowing skin with a refreshing after scent.
And is it safe?
The FDA has approved DHA as a topical application and recommends that users should avoid inhaling or ingesting DHA. As a result, VersaSpa emits the least amount of solution necessary to achieve a full body tan, thus decreasing the amount of inhalable mist for a more pleasant experience. Furthermore, VersaSpa users are encouraged to use protective measures to eliminate ingestion such as: using protective eyewear, nose filters, and sealing lips with lip balm; and the use of disposable undergarments. The Versaspa is not recommended for children under the age of 12.
Can you spray tan while pregnant?
We always recommend checking with your doctor before deciding to spray tan. Only your physician should determine if spray tanning is safe for you during your pregnancy.
Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is the active ingredient most often used in all sunless tanners and is approved by the FDA for externally applied sunless tanning solutions. For additional information on sunless tanners and bronzers, we encourage you to take a look at the FDA Spray Tan Advisory and consult your physician.
Don’t forget – there is always the option of using at-home self-tanning products. VersaSpa’s eco-certified self-tanning products are uniquely formulated with green & brown marine algae to detoxify and rejuvenate the skin for a natural-looking tan.
