Tanning Q & A
What is stand-up tanning?
Stand and tan comfortably in our Sun Capsule VHR Euro Series tanning bed. Equipped with fresh bulbs, our Sun Capsule is hot, fast, and efficient, giving you a great tan with as little as 2 to 5 sessions. Standing up allows you to completely eliminate any tanning lines on the sides of your body and any other hard to reach areas.
How long does a tanning session last?
The length of a stand-up tanning session can vary, but it typically lasts between 5 and 12 minutes. Our staff can help you evaluate your skin type and suggest the best exposure time and schedule to induce a tan and avoid a burn.
How often should I tan?
It is recommended that you wait at least 48 hours between each tanning session to allow your skin to recover. It is also important to limit your total tanning time to avoid overexposure to UV rays.
Is stand-up tanning safe?
Any type of tanning carries some risks. Overexposure to UV rays can increase your risk of skin cancer and premature aging. It is important to follow proper safety precautions and limit your tanning time.
What should I wear during my tanning session?
Most people wear minimal clothing, such as a swimsuit or underwear, to avoid tan lines. Your room is private, so you can wear as little as you want.
Do I have to wear eye protection?
It is required that you wear protective eyewear to prevent damage to your eyes. UV light can and will cause long term effects in the eyes such as cataracts, corneal burns and even blindness. We have disposable and reusable eye protection available to purchase.

Can stand-up tanning help treat skin conditions like acne or psoriasis?
There is some evidence to suggest that exposure to UV light can help improve certain skin conditions, such as psoriasis. However, it is important to talk to your doctor before using tanning as a treatment option.
How do I maintain my tan?
To maintain your tan, it is important to keep your skin moisturized and avoid exfoliating too frequently. We suggest using a special tanning lotion to help extend the life of your tan.
