Luxury: Mystic Tan™ UV Free
The Mystic Tan™ UV-Free is a spray tanning booth that employs MagnaTan technology, a revolutionary spray process, which applies a uniform amount of tanning mist to the entire body in just seconds. When the tanning session is complete, the tanner simply steps out of the booth, towels off any excess mist, dresses and exits. The result is a smooth, natural looking tan.
Medical therapy involving exposure to sunlight
Whether you tan indoors or outdoors, the process is the same. Tanning takes place in the skins outer most layer, the epidermis. Within the epidermis are special cells called Melanocytes. When exposed to ultraviolet B light (short wave ultraviolet) Melanocytes produce Melanin, the pigment that makes your skin tan. As the Melanin is produced it travels up through the epidermis and is absorbed by other skin cells. When exposed to ultraviolet A light (longer wave), the Melanin oxidizes or darkens. The darkening is your skin's way of protecting itself against too much UV light.
Benefits of tanning
Vitamin D Production
UV light exposure to the skin is the bodies primary means of vitamin D production, a major factor in the flight against, bone diseases such as osteoporosis.
Nature's Skin Protection
Tanning is your bodies natural protection against burning. Unlike some sunscreens, a tan provides reliable full spectrum UVA/UVB protection against burning. Your natural tan provides protection that does not rub, sweat or wear off the way sunscreen protection can.
Prevention of some cancers
Current research suggests people who regularly expose themselves to UV light experience lower incidence of death from ovarian, breast and colon cancers than whose who live in places with less sunlight, such as Alaska.
Seasonal Affected Disorder (SAD)
The National Institute of Mental Health has produced evidence that the shortage of sunlight during winter produces clinical depression in millions of people. Exposure to sunlight or simulated sunlight for 10-20 minutes once or twice a week show a 70% improvement in patients with seasonal affected disorder (SAD). Light treatment is the only know cure for the "winter blues".
Mystic Tan makes an immediate fashion statement, creating an even, natural looking tan that peaks four to five hours after application and retains the color for days.
Mystic Tan provides a “bronzing” effect and the under-a-minute application is convenient for today’s hectic lifestyles. In addition, many people use Mystic Tan to prepare for special occasions: spring break, class reunions, first dates, graduations, proms, weddings, etc.
The Mystic TanTM UV-Free tanning booth uses a touch-free, spray-on tanning technique that creates an even, natural-looking tan in less than 60 seconds and lasts four to five days.
Mystic Tan’s proven spray-on technique dispenses a fine mist of its proprietary sunless tanning solution, made up of moisturizing Aloe Vera, bronzers, and sunless tanner. The booth’s patented MagneTan technology then uses the human body’s natural magnetic properties to evenly attract the solution to the body. Operating since 1998, Mystic Tan is offered in more than 700 tanning salons throughout the United States Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Australia, Spain and Italy, and has provided over 1.5 million sessions.

Not all people tan the same.
Skin types vary from person to person and in general you should expect to acquire a good base tan in 3-6 sessions.
Best results are obtained when sessions are taken every other day for the first 3 sessions.
Then if there is no sign of redness, itchiness, or discomfort a consecutive day schedule should be maintained until a tan is developed. Once a tan is developed, one or two sessions per week will help you maintain your tan.
If you plan to tan in the nude or have areas of your skin which are typically unexposed to sunlight
we suggest covering previously unexposed areas for the majority of your tanning session for the first few visits. Gradually increase exposure to these areas, giving the skin time to build melanin production.
Our equipment and session times are specifically designed to maximize your tanning results.
Your skin will continue to develop a tan 24-48 hours after exposure, so do not be concerned if you do not see results right away.
By law you may only tan once in a 24 hour period and must wear approved tanning goggles during your tanning session.
Prior to your Session
Remove any makeup
Remove all jewelry
Apply your favorite indoor tanning lotion
Baby oil and any outdoor products may not be used.
Please ask one of our Tan Technicians for assistance in choosing the right product for your skin type and tan progression.
After your Session
Please use the towel provided to dry off yourself.
Leave the goggles and towel in the rooms, we will dispose of them properly and sanitize the room when your session is complete.
After tanning please dress immediately as someone may be waiting for the room.
Make sure to take all personal items with you. You may freshen up and re-apply makeup at the vanity located in the hallway.
Apply your favorite after tan moisturizer.
The heat and light from tanning sessions can dry your skin. Because moist skin tans best, we recommend you moisturize before and after each tanning session as well as after you shower, to get the most from each visit.
Maximize your results with indoor lotions.
Indoor tanning lotions sold at Bella Bronze Tanning Studio are different from lotions you buy at the store. Today's indoor lotions are bio-engineered to maximize the results of your tanning visit while increasing the quality of your tan. Moist, nourished skin tans best. Indoor tanning lotions are designed to supply your skin with the essential nutrients necessary to develop a tan. These special ingredients also moisturize your skin to keep it looking young and healthy. There are other advantages to using specialized indoor tanning lotions.
Save you time: Moisturized skin tans more quickly.
