Airbrush Tanning Basics

Introduction to Airbrush Tanning

The sunless scope started with the world’s top Celebrities, including athletes and VIP personnel to friends, family and neighbors. The sunless revolution has begun in the past few years and has turned into a  thriving, billion dollar industry. Today, millions have flocked to the doors of sunless spray tans as more and more discover the solution to achieving quick & convenient color that is healthy for the skin!

How Does It Work?

Sunless solution is delivered to one section of the skin at a time through an airbrush spray tanning unit (operated by a live technician) which works with a compressor. At EBB, we use HVLP systems which are high volume, low pressure units designed to produce the most even, well-blended & fast drying flawless tans.

You will feel a small stream of air as the the solution breaks down into minute particles. First, a cosmetic bronzer for instant results becomes visible the moment the product is applied to the skin. Second, a DHA BRONZER (dihydroxyacetone) reacts with the amino acids in your skin to develop color over   6-8 hours with no orange color.

A fast drying, golden brown spray-on color solution, Norvell Amber Sun System gives you color in two ways. First with a COSMETIC BRONZER (instant) that is visible the moment you apply the product. Next with a DHA BRONZER (dihydroxyacetone) which reacts with the amino acids in your skin to develop color over 2-3 hours with no orange color. Norvell’s even, streak-free formula has built-in sheeting action to eliminate spotting and streaking.

How Long Does It Last?

Similar to a regular tan, airbrush tans last 5-10 days depending on your skin type and maintenance care. We also offer the best products (see Our Products page) that work in conjunction with our solution to help protect and extend the life of your tan.

What is DHA?

The DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) bronzer (natural, active ingredient, derived from glycerin, that interacts with the amino acids in the skin cells producing a color change) will begin to activate within 2-4 hours after application, replacing any cosmetic bronzers as they wash off. Full DHA results develop within 18-24 hours and should last 6-10 days depending on a variety of individual factors including maintenance.
