Treatment options

At The Body Bar Clinic we have a variety of tanning solutions on offer to suit different skin tones and client needs. Your therapist will discuss your individual wants and needs in order to determine which tanning solution will deliver the best result for you.

Who can benefit

Spray Tanning is a great way to keep your skin looking sun kissed year round without the harmful damage and pre-mature ageing that occurs through prolonged sun exposure. Spray tanning appears to  even out complexion and skin discolorations and is a great treatment for special occasions such as weddings, formal events, night outs, and other special events.

What to expect

You may choose to tan in your own swimwear or underwear, naked or use our disposable g-string. 

Preparation

Please always inform clinic therapists of any medication, medical history or allergies.

 

To prepare your skin for your tan please:

Exfoliate and remove any unwanted hair, either with waxing or shaving, 24-48 hours prior. We recommend using MineTan Tan Eraser for optimal skin preparation.

Ensure your skin is clean and dry, free from makeup, moisturiser and deodorant. 

Remove all jewellery prior to treatment.

Wear loose fitting clothes and open toes shoes to your appointment to avoid the tan rubbing off before it develops properly.

Who isn't suitable for treatment

Client's may be unsuitable for treatment, or may need treatment alterations or medical approval, for any of the following:

Allergies or respiratory concerns

Sunburn

Eczema

Psoriasis

Dermatitis

Please contact the clinic with any queries.

Expected outcomes

Your tan may appear patchy in some places immediately post treatment, but be assured this is normal and expected. Once the tan has developed, this excess product can be rinsed in the shower to reveal a gorgeous uniform glow.

Post treatment advice

Refrain from showering or getting your skin wet for 1-8 hours as directed by your therapist. 

With your first shower we suggest you use water only as the tan will still develop after initiation removal. With your second shower (approximately 8 hours after first shower) you can use body wash and moisturiser!

Avoid any heat or exercise that can cause excessive sweating for 6-8 hours, or as directed by your therapist.

Avoid chlorine, excessive bathing or the sea water, as this will fade your tan faster.

Avoid abrasive or exfoliating products until the tan begins to fade, then these products can be used to remove the tan and prepare for your next tanning appointment.

Moisturise your skin daily to keep the skin hydrated as this will ensure the longest lasting results from your tan. We recommend the use of MinetTan EOD Tan Milk, Rose Illuminating Face Mist, and/or Illuminating Glow Drops for the best longevity of your tan.
