Spray Tanning

FAQ's

What do I need to do before my tan?

The most crucial step before your airbrush tanning session is to thoroughly exfoliate your skin so you can get the best possible results. Our Exfoliating Mitts are great to use as well which you can pick up in store a few days prior to your appointment! Remove all makeup, deodorant and lotions. Waxing, shaving, manicures and pedicures all need to be done the day before your appointment.

What do I wear?

During your session you may wear whatever you're most comfortable in, however, to avoid lines you may prefer to go topless. You can also choose to wear swimsuits, strapless bra and undergarments, whatever you decide. Men must wear swim trunks or shorts. It is best to wear dark loose fitting clothing immediately after your session. NO yoga pants, skinny jeans, leggings, etc. Think - comfy!

When can I shower?

You'll need to wait a minimum of 8 hours before showering. It is recommended that you also avoid swimming, working out, or any activity that will cause excess sweating before the 8 hours is up.

How long will my tan last?

Depending on your post-care regimen, your airbrush tan will last anywhere between 7-10 days. Here are a few things you can do to extend the life of your tan; Your first shower after your session should be more of a quick "rinse." Stay away from loofahs and harsh soaps. Avoid shaving or exfoliating that first shower as well. When you are drying off "pat" yourself dry instead of rubbing. We also offer an exclusive tan extender and spray tan approved lotions to keep your skin looking great and to help extend your tan even longer!

If I'm pregnant, can I get a spray tan?

Most people are suitable for an airbrush tan. We recommend that if you're pregnant, you should consult with your doctor before scheduling an appointment.

Lash Extension 

FAQ's

How long do lash extensions typically last?

Eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your own eyelashes when following proper aftercare. (We naturally shed 2-4 of our natural lashes daily!) Depending on your activity and day-to-day routine, refills should only be required every 2 to 4 weeks.

Can I get my lash extensions wet?

We do ask you to minimize the chance of wetting the extensions for the first 48 hours of wear. After that 48-hour period, the adhesive used to apply your eyelash extensions is secure enough to allow you to get right back to your routine. However, keeping away from extensive contact with steam such as in saunas or certain facials is recommended since it can begin to loosen the bond.

How do I care for my lash extensions?

  • Avoid getting lashes wet for the first 24-48 hours

  • Avoid hot steam or sauna

  • Avoid products that contain oil on your lashes and eyes

  • Do not perm eyelashes or manually curl.

  • Avoid mascara on your lash extensions

  • Brush with a clean mascara wand daily.

  • TIP: Sometimes mornings are a mess! Try washing your lashes in the morning and gently brushing the top side of the extensions with a finger placed beneath. 

What should I do to prepare for lash extensions?

Remove eye makeup prior to appointment and arrive without any oils/creams on your eyes to avoid any barrier for the glue to adhere to. If you typically wear glasses, please bring them to your appointment so your artist can check to make sure they are applying the correct length to avoid any rubbing as well.

If I decide to remove my lashes, what should I do?

Lash removal should be done by soaking the lashes with an oil such as coconut oil to break down the bonds of the glue. If you experience any type of allergic reaction, lashes should be removed immediately.

Laser Teeth Whitening FAQ's

Is our laser teeth whitening safe?

Absolutely yes! Our products have been around for over 20 years. We offer the safest FDA approved plant and mineral based gel. The products do not damage teeth and provide enamel building qualities.

How white will my teeth get and how long will it last?

This varies from person to person. It really depends on your lifestyle and the diet you consume. The average whitening is 5-14 shades whiter in one session. One session takes about 90 minutes and is broken into three 20 minute sessions under the laser. You'll leave with your teeth the whitest they can naturally go. Everyone has a natural stopping point. The results will last 6 months or more with proper aftercare and maintenance.
