HOW DO I GET COLOR IN ONE DAY?
We recommend adding a spray tan to your sunbed tanning routine! Just one spray tan session in our Mystic Tan Booth can produce flawless results in as little as six to eight hours when you need a quick boost of color. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions about sunless tanning!
ARE THE SUN BEDS CLEAN?

HOW OFTEN DOES SUN STUDIO CHANGE THE LAMPS IN THE SUN BEDS?
Our sun beds are fully relamped once the lamps reach approximately 80% of their lifespan. We will always inform clients of new lamps prior to their session and we advise all tanners to reduce their normal tanning time to avoid overexposing.
