There is no difference with our sunbeds. The strength is determined by using good tubes and replacing them regularly. Some people say that standups are better, however, the truth is that they are cheaper to buy and take up half the space of a laydown. Some salons don't even have laydowns. It's simply a personal choice on whether you prefer to standup or laydown - Tonic offers that choice!
Some people tan much quicker than others but when building a tan it is recommended to use the sunbed three times a week, preferably leaving a day between sessions, for four consecutive weeks. When you have the tan you are looking for, it should be OK to come in just once a week.
Yes. Wink-ease and goggles are available to all customers. We also suggest that you remove any contact lenses and keep your eyes closed.
The heat of the sunbed makes no difference to your tan. Our units start tanning as soon as they are turned on. The beds have powerful cooling fans for a comfortable environment.
When skin is exposed to ultra-violet B light, cells called melanocytes in the deeper dermis layer of the skin produce increased amounts of melanin, the tanning pigment, this is then transferred to the top layer of skin, the epidermis. Ultra-violet A then acts upon the melanin near the surface by oxidising it. This turns the melanin brown and creates what we know as a tan. This process does not happen immediately, generally only four to six hours after the tanning session.
