What is high pressure tanning?
Developed for use in phototherapy treatment, high pressure lamps produce UVA and UVB in different ratios than conventional tanning beds: just enough UVB to produce the melanin required to tan, and a lot of UVA to oxidize the melanin and turn it into a golden brown. This bed gives you a full body experience and long lasting tanning results achieved in 22 minutes. Our high pressure tanning bed effectively eliminates a large percentage of the burning ultraviolet (UVB and certain wavelengths of UVA). This allows most skin types to tan nearly the full session time with minimal risk of sunburn at the same time producing the fastest tan possible that lasts the longest.
Hi-Pressure Tanning OR Low-and-Medium Pressure Tanning: What's better?
Studies show that a combination of low-or-medium pressure tanning and high-pressure tanning produce the best and fastest results. High-Pressure lamps are the fastest: a base tan can be established in as few as 3 visits compared to 10 or more visits to a low-pressure bed.
How quickly can I expect to tan in a high-pressure unit?
High-pressure beds have a higher ratio of UVA to UVB and can therefore develop a tan 6 to 8 times faster than low-pressure tanning bulbs. The tan resulting from a high-pressure tanning bed is often deeper and lasts longer because the reduction in UVB doesn't dry the skin out and cause it to shed. If time is important to you, High Pressure tanning is a huge advantage!
High Pressure Tanning is the quickest way to get deep, golden color fast. When used in combination with conventional tanning packages, high pressure sessions will enhance your tan, making it deeper, darker, with a more luxurious bronze. Most skin types can tan the full session in this bed with minimal risk of sunburn. Typically three visits in this bed are comparable to ten or more visits to a low-pressure bed.
How often should my sessions be to maintain my tan?
By filtering out much of the UVB light and using linger, softer UVA rays, high-pressure tanning beds reduce the negative impact on the epidermis, which means that your skin will stay moisturized and hold the tan for much longer. High pressure beds should make establishing a base tan much easier, usually only taking 3-5 sessions. The tan will also last longer and require less maintenance. Instead of tanning twice a week, you can maintain your tan by using a high pressure tanning bed only three sessions per month!
