VERSASPA FAQs

What is a Multi-Treatment Session?

A VersaSpa Multi-Treatment Session is a process of combining 3 formulations in the same session. A full body pH balancer, the bronzer itself as well as a moisturizer.

Is it organic?

Our spray tan is as organic as possible. Along with organic blueberry, spinach and cranberry, organic aloe vera is also included to help hydrate and nourish the skin. The bronzing ingredient that is called DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is EcoCert approved but does not qualify for organic certification due to the nature of the product.  

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.

The only transfer to hair we have experienced is a fresh blonde immediately following a hair appointment. If you have bleached your hair, we recommend waiting 24 – 48 hours for your hair follicles to close.

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.

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. 

SKIN FINISHING – CUSTOM FULL BODY AIRBRUSH SPRAY TAN at BRENTWOOD & GASTOWN

We recommend Skin Finishing to any one who is getting a spray tan for an extra special occasion or if you are looking for a custom result or increased skin care. Skin Finishing allows for a custom level of bronzer to be applied to the full body with less chance of error compared to a Spray Tan booth.   

SKIN FINISHING – CUSTOM AIRBRUSH

Skin Finishing is a customized treatment performed by a specially trained spray tan technician. Results will vary based on the amount of information you share with your technician. A makeup light or a ring light is used during Skin Finishing sessions so we can see how the bronzer is being absorbed and resting on the skin.

Each Skin Finishing service starts with a pH balancer and at least two layers of bronzer. Most often, the first layer of bronzer is to cover the full body (as requested), and the second layer is to complete any missed spots, darken up any specific areas or sometimes the second layer is to darken up the full body. Further, bronzer can continue to be added if an extra dark results is requested or if the skin is absorbing at a slower rate and lighter layers.

THE STANDARD
pH Balancer + Standard bronzer (6 – 9 hours)
$75

THE PLATINUM
pH Balancer + Rapid development bronzer (4 hours)
For the darkest, richest results possible or if you want to shower in a limited time frame.
$89

CBD and SKINCARE INFUSED SKIN FINISHING – CUSTOM FULL BODY BRONZE

CBD is best known for it’s healing properties when applied topically to the skin. It can reduce dryness, inflammation, redness, rosacea, muscle spasms and help fight against free-radical damage. Visually we find that the skin looks more even and nourished.  When CBD and skin care is applied in conjunction with a pH balancer the spray tan last longer and looks more vibrant. Indulge yourself in a more toned or healthy appearance during the life of your spray tan by invigorating the surface of the skin with an extra dose of pisum sativum and niacinamide or caffeine, silica.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR A SPRAY TAN

A spray tan relies 50% on how well an individual prepares and cares for their skin and 50% on the application technique.

Preparation

Day Before Tan

Wax/Shave Any Unwanted Body Hair | Waxing should be completed at least 48 hours prior to your clients appointment and shaving should be completed with a razor that lacks a moisture strip. If you need to shave after your spray tan use a new razor and a spray tan approved shaving cream to avoid stripping your tan.

Exfoliate Entire Body With A Dermasuri Mitt | We advise against using a body scrub/loofah combo as most are oil-based and will leave a residue.

Complete Manicure/Pedicure | If completed day-of tan, forego any oils/lotions that your nail technician might apply. If completed days after tan, know that your tan may become uneven due to soaking, acetone, oils, lotions, etc. that your nail technician may apply.

Avoid Using Any Bar Soaps Or Cream-Based Body Washes | Any bar soaps/cream-based body washes (Dove specifically) are known to leave a residue on the skin and can create a barrier that the tan cannot penetrate through and may leave streaks. Any gel-based body wash is best.

Day of Tan

Do Not Apply Any Lotions, Oils, Deodorant, Perfumes, Or Makeup | All of these can create a barrier on the skin that the tan will not adhere to. If you have any of these products on come to the studio to remove them. We supply 3 in 1 towelettes to remove barriers. Do not use a Makeup Wipe as these are very oily and will create more of a barrier.

Wear Dark, Loose-Fitting Clothing With Open-Toed Sandals | The best outfit to wear is a sweat outfit. Any tight clothing put on immediately after the tan can result in unwanted lines due to friction. Please note that the bronzer in solution may transfer to your items, but is water soluble and will wash out. If you need an oversize t-shirt and flip flops we offer these for sale at the studio.

Hours After Tan

Do Not Get Wet Or Sweat Until Your Initial Rinse | If you accidentally spill water on yourself or your pet licks you, take a fluffy makeup brush and use circular motions to buff and blend out the solution. If you have a self-tanner at-home, you can use a very small amount on their makeup brush to help blend. Understand that the bronzer will not appear “perfect” after, but once rinsed off, the tan will be evened out.

Rinse In Lukewarm Water With No Soap | You will see most of the bronzer wash away down the drain, this is normal.

Wait Until Your Color Is Fully Developed To Moisturize | All tans will take anywhere from 3-8 hours to be fully developed. Any product applied to the skin during this time can hinder the results. It is best to moisturize with a lotion that is free of any artificial fragrances or mineral oil as these will strip a tan very quickly.
