FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need to wear eye protection when tanning?
Yes, The human eye can suffer permanent damage from UV exposure. The eyes have no natural protection from UV light.
Why do different beds have UVA or UVB bulbs?
UVA rays are often called the “browning rays”. They penetrate the skin deeper than UVB and the tanner has a lower chance of burning. UVA is a good option for someone who is trying to get a tan quickly or if they cannot tan often. UVB rays are often called “Melanin producing rays” and they stimulate the melanin in the tanner’s skin. The effect is shorter lasting so the tanner has to tan more often to keep their color. There is a larger chance of burning since the rays affect the surface layers of the skin more like actual sun rays, so shorter and more regular tanning sessions are better. UVB are the rays you want to expose yourself to when trying to build a good base tan to prevent burning while on vacation.
How long does it take to get a tan?
This depends on your skin type, the equipment you are using and how many times a week you are using it. While some people may get a “base” tan in a few sessions it may take others three times a week for several weeks.
Do I really need a lotion?
Lotion can help stimulate the production of pigment in your skin making your skin tan quicker, darker and keep your color longer. It also provides moisture and nourishment to your skin. Glo Studio Tanning has a full range of lotions to fit any budget. We also pass on our discounts to our customers. Ask one of our tanning consultants to help select the right lotion for your skin today and keep your tan darker longer.
What should I wear in the tanning bed?
Each tanning room is private so you can wear (or not wear) whatever you wish. Keep in mind that areas of the body that have “not seen the sun” will be more susceptible to burn. It is recommended you cover these areas with a towel and remove the towel a few minutes before your session ends to gradually tan these sensitive areas.
How do I know the beds are clean?
We use an FDA approved cleaning solution after each and every client’s session. The solution it tested to ensure it is properly mixed.
Do I need an appointment to tan?

How often should I tan?
This depends on your individual skin type. Some people may be able to tan in 24 hours but it is recommended you wait 48 hours between tanning sessions.
