Our Services: Mystic HD Spray Tanning
WHAT IS MYSTIC HD TAN?
It’s a private, self-contained system that employs a revolutionary spray-on process that uses sweeping side to side airbrush motion (and Magnetan Technology) to apply uniform amounts of Mystic HD Tan tanning mist to the entire body in just seconds.
The Mystic HD Tan system utilizes personal, single-use cartridges that can be blended to create the perfect combination for all skin types and desired results. Systems equipped w/HD technology add heat to your tanning experience, plus an added drying feature during the application process. Heating conditions the skin for maximum absorption and provides a more inviting experience. Your Mystic HD tanning experience can be further enhanced with our assortment of additives, including boosters, accelerators, and scents.
WHAT IS MAGNETAN TECHNOLOGY?
Magnetan application technology is mystic’s patented process that uses the human body’s own magnetic properties to attract Mystic HD Tan tanning mist to every exposed surface of the skin. When Mystic HD Tan tanning mist passes through the spray nozzles, the micro-particles of mist are polarized, taking on the characteristics of “tiny magnets.” These particles adhere evenly, and in a precise uniform amount to the exposed skin to create a smooth, even, natural-looking tan.
WHAT IS MYSTIC TAN TANNING MIST?
The Mystic Tan tanning mysts are self-tanning formulations designed especially for use in Mystic Tan systems. They contain DHA, the fda approved active ingredient that produces the long-term tan effect. When applied, DHA reacts with the proteins in the skin’s superficial layer to form a golden brown color. Your skin begins to darken two to three hours after application and reaches its peak color within 24 hours. The color will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun.
Mystic Tan offers several choices of tanning mist in clear formulations. If an instant tan is desired, add mystic’s bronzer additives. These are water soluble, bronzing cosmetics that produce an instant tan. The bronzer is a temporary cosmetic color that washes off in the shower or bath without affecting your ultimate tan.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR IN THE MYSTIC TAN?
Most people wear nothing. Since the room is completely private, going for an all-over treatment is completely up to you. However, if you do wear a bathing suit or underwear, please note that it may become stained. The Insta-Color Bronzer used in the bronzer additives is water-soluble and should wash out, but the DHA may permanently stain what you wear during the tanning session.
SHOULD I COVER MY HAIR WHILE TANNING IN THE MYSTIC TAN?
Most of our customers wear a disposable shower cap (provided by us) to keep hair dry. Other customers choose to get their treatment without covering their hair. The Mystic Tan tanning mist does not penetrate the hair follicle. However, if you use a bronzer additive and have very light or white hair, it may become temporarily stained.
WILL MY SKIN BE WET WHEN I STEP OUT OF THE MYSTIC TAN?
If any excess moisture remains on the skin’s surface after the session, simply use a towel to remove it. Towel off completely just as you do when you shower. This won’t streak your tan. (Systems equipped w/HD technology minimize the need to towel off after each session).
HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT AFTER A SESSION BEFORE SHOWERING?
To give the DHA enough time to fully set, we recommend waiting a minimum of 4 hours after a Mystic HD Tan session. Showering sooner may diminish the intensity of the tan. If you tanned using a bronzer additive, the Insta-Color Bronzer will wash off in the shower, but the DHA that creates your longer-lasting tan will remain.
WILL SWIMMING AFFECT MY TAN?
Swimming in chlorinated water or salt water can fade the Mystic HD Tan results, cause possible streaking and will diminish the length of your tan. However, normal activities such as bathing, showering or physical activities will not affect the quality of the tan.
WILL MY SKIN LOOK ORANGE?
Not at all. Before Mystic Tan, most self-tanners were creams and lotions applied by hand. That meant inconsistent coverage. Too much lotion applied in one place left the skin looking orange. Not enough lotion left unattractive streaks. Mystic’s Magnetan technology ensures that a uniform micro-spray of Mystic Tan tanning mist covers the entire body in the exact amount required to produce a smooth, even, natural-looking tan.
DOES MYSTIC TAN TANNING MIST HAVE ANY SMELL AFTER CONTACT WITH MY SKIN?
Some people notice a slight starchy smell on their skin a few hours after a tanning session. This is simply the DHA reacting to proteins in your skin and it fades away fairly quickly.
HAS ANYONE HAD AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO MYSTIC TAN TANNING MIST?
The components in the Mystic HD Tan mist have been successfully used in cosmetics and food products for decades, and are proven safe for use on the skin. If you’ve had previous allergic reactions to self-tanning lotions or cosmetics, you may want to do a “patch test” first. Put a small amount of Mystic Tan tanning mist on a small area of your skin to test for possible reactions.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE MYSTIC TAN TANNING MIST FORMULATIONS GET IN MY EYES?
Mystic Tan tanning mist formulations have been thoroughly tested by a third-party lab and the results showed no eye or skin irritation. More than 20 million mystic sessions occur each year, with no adverse reactions documented. However, we provide protective eyewear should you wish to use it.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I INHALE ANY OF THE MYSTIC TAN TANNING MIST?
While no one should purposely inhale or ingest the Mystic Tan tanning mist, it is known that DHA (the active tanning ingredient) is a non-hazardous compound and causes no adverse reaction in moderate quantities when applied topically or even ingested. DHA has been used as a diet supplement in sports nutrition and is non-carcinogenic. Testing has further shown that DHA is less toxic than aspirin, caffeine and even common table salt.
Based on the company’s research, the maximum amount of DHA that could accidentally be ingested or breathed during a one-minute Mystic HD Tan sunless tanning session would be .05 milligrams (equivalent to less than one grain of common table salt). Ingesting this minimal amount of DHA should pose no health risk to the consumer. However, we also provide nose filters should you wish to use them.
ARE THERE WAYS TO ENHANCE THE MYSTIC TAN RESULTS?
Yes, the Mystic HD Tan product line features ingredients that are specially formulated for sunless tanning. Over the counter products are not formulated for sunless tanning, and may block the tan’s application and impede the development process. Check out mystic’s complete line of products, designed to prolong, protect and enhance your sunless tanning experience.
