Professional tanning salons keep a list of potential photosensitive medications available for you as well.

Furthermore, this Smart Tan Salon follows important medical issues, federal and state regulations and product updates giving you the smartest tanning experience available. So, "Tan With Confidence". We are absolutely the best!
Is there no such thing as a safe tan?
Actually, you could say that it is not safe to totally avoid the sun. Research suggests the benefits of regular sun exposure may outweigh the risks of overexposure by merely avoiding sunburn. Research shows that regular, moderate sun exposure might actually decrease your risk of getting breast cancer, colon cancer or even osteoporosis. Women are 69 times more likely to die of breast cancer than skin cancer. And new research suggests that the Vitamin D you receive from ultraviolet light may inhibit the formation of many forms of cancer, including breast cancer. These are reported facts from many pieces of research, we are not saying indoor tanning is therapeutic.
Why do I feel better when I tan?
It's no big secret that when you look good, you feel great! Experts have known for years that there are many psychological benefits to tanning. Increased self-confidence and self-esteem are just a few of the obvious benefits and many more are surfacing. Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.) is a condition that affects 35 million Americans during the winter. Its symptoms are mood swings, increased appetite and excessive sleeping. For years doctors have treated this condition with full-spectrum lighting absorbed through the eyes. New research, using ultraviolet light on the skin, has shown positive results as well. But one thing for sure: Tanning makes you look good and feel great!
Why should I use eye protection when I tan?
You risk serious injury to your eyes if you fail to wear your protective eyewear. Ultraviolet light can penetrate deep into your eyes when you tan. Specifically, the short waves of UVB can penetrate the cornea, possibly causing painful corneal eye burns. Some UVB and the longer waves of UVA can penetrate the lens or the retina, causing retinal burns or even cataracts and other long-term internal eye damage. BECAUSE SOME OF THESE CONDITIONS TAKE YEARS TO DEVELOP, YOU MAY NOT REALIZE THAT YOU ARE DAMAGING YOUR EYES WHEN YOU FAIL TO WEAR EYEWEAR. Merely closing your eyelids while you tan is not enough!
Why should I use indoor tanning lotions when I tan?
Indoor tanning lotions work differently than outdoor tanning lotions. Indoor lotions are scientifically bio-engineered to maximize your tanning performance while moisturizing your skin. Today's tanning lotions deliver nutrients to your skin that skin cells need to induce the tanning process. It is literally like feeding your tan. Also, these special ingredients, only found in indoor lotions, can help you attain a darker tan in fewer tanning visits, saving you money while taking care of your skin. You maximize your tan, your time and your money when you use indoor tanning lotions. Going without doesn't make sense.) To maintain the integrity of our tanning acrylics, we will only allow approved tanning lotions that are sold in professional tanning salons. Maintaining our acrylics is a serious matter, as it determines the amount of UV light that penetrates to give you the results you desire.
