Custom Airbrush Spray Tan

Experience the glow of the summer without the damage of the sun with our custom airbrush spray tan at Thrive Medical Spa. Our skilled provider, Angie Messner, uses advanced techniques to deliver flawless, personalized tans tailored to your unique skin tone, providing confidence in your appearance and attitude.

What is a Custom Airbrush Spray Tan?

Airbrush spray tans apply the tanning solution using an airbrush gun, manually controlled by a trained practitioner. Unlike regular spray tans, which may provide a standardized application, our airbrush spray tans offer personalized results customized to the individuals skin tone and desired level of intensity.

Airbrush spray tans trace back to the late 20th century with the development of airbrush devices for cosmetic purposes. Initially, airbrush tanning proved popular in the entertainment industry for actors and models. Over time, airbrush tans became more accessible to the general public through professional spas and salons, offering a safe and convenient alternative to traditional sun exposure or tanning beds.

The Custom Airbrush Spray Tan Procedure

To prepare for a custom airbrush spray tan, patients should exfoliate their skin thoroughly one day prior to appointment to remove any dead cells and create a smooth surface (shaving is a perfect way to exfoliate). We advise avoiding moisturizing, oils, and perfumes on the day of the appointment since they can interfere with the tanning solution absorption. Patients should also wear loose-fitting, dark-colored clothes to prevent staining.

During the procedure, patients will stand in a designated area inside a pop-up tent while our trained provider, Angie, uses a special airbrush gun to evenly apply the tanning solution to the skin. Angie will customize the application to match the patient’s skin color and desired tan intensity, ensuring an even coverage. After the application, patients will wait a few minutes for the solution to dry before dressing.

Your Recovery and Results

For a short time, it’s advisable to avoid activities that may cause sweating or excessive friction on the skin to prevent the tan from fading prematurely.

Patients can expect a beautifully bronzed complexion with a natural glow lasting for about a week. Airbrush spray tans can temporarily camouflage imperfections, such as uneven skin tone or blemishes, providing a boost in confidence. A custom spray tan lasts from 5-10 days. Proper skincare before and after directly affects the length of the tan.

Long term, getting customized airbrush spray tans promote skin health from staying out of the sun. However, the tan is temporary and gradually fades as the skin naturally sheds its outermost layer, requiring periodic applications for maintenance.

Safety is Our Priority

At Thrive Medical Spa, we prioritize your safety, well-being and comfort above all else. With a steadfast commitment to offering safe, effective services and treatments, we aim to foster an environment where you can THRIVE, supported by our unwavering dedication to your wellness and peace of mind. During your initial consultation, your provider will thoroughly explain any possible risks associated with each procedure and the safety protocols we have in place.
