St. Tropez Sunless Tanning
Looking to achieve a gorgeous tan without the damaging effects of the sun?
SKIN MediSpa makes it possible to get a gorgeous tan without the adverse effects of the sun. You can boast a beautiful golden glow and skip the UV rays, sun damage and wrinkles. The spray tan is airbrushed onto your skin by an aesthetician to ensure even coverage and a flawless finish. The St. Tropez solution works with your own skin tone to provide natural looking colour, free of streaks or orange tones. Results are instant, making this treatment perfect for special events or radiant skin year-round.
Unlike most self tanners, SKIN’s St. Tropez tanning solution is not a stain. It is a unique formulation of two safe, active ingredients that create a non-toxic chemical reaction in the top layers of the skin, causing a change in colour. A colourless sugar, known as DHA, interacts with amino acids in the top layer of the skin to produce a temporary colour change, giving you that golden glow. The DHA works in combination with Erythrulose, a moisturizing ingredient derived from raspberries. Erythrulose develops more slowly than DHA, ensuring a smoother color that will last even longer and fade more evenly. This special formulation will only develop as dark as your skin would naturally tan, making it impossible to overspray your colour. Using excess product will not darken your tan. Your colour will not streak or appear uneven as long as the entire surface area of the skin is covered during the application process.
Prior to Treatment
Shave/wax at least one day prior to appointment to avoid any irritation. Exfoliate skin using a body scrub or exfoliating gloves focusing on areas with rough skin such as elbows and knees.
Day of Treatment
Remove deodorant, make-up, and perfumes. Moisturize dry areas (knees, elbows, hands and feet) and wear dark, loose fitting clothing to your appointment.
Post Treatment Instructions
Avoid showering for at least 8 hours following the St. Tropez application (overnight provides optimal results). Avoid exercise and strenuous activity between the application and first shower. Avoid swimming pools and hot tubs. Use moisturizer daily after showering. Exfoliate your skin every 2-3 days.
*Following these instructions will help your St. Tropez Tan fade naturally over the course of 1-2 weeks.
