Please read, understand, and sign the following:
Spray tanning is accomplished by application of a solution containing the active ingredient: DHA (Dihydroxyacetone). DHA is generally considered to be safe and has been FDA approved ONLY if you follow guidelines to protect mucous membranes. The FDA advises asking the following questions when considering the application of DHA products by spraying or misting:
- Are you protected from exposure in the entire area of the eyes, in addition to the eyes themselves? (Goggles or stickers can be requested if needed)
- Are you protected from exposure on the lips and all parts of the body covered by mucous membrane? (Lip balm or sticky garments are available if requested)
- Are you protected from internal exposure caused by inhaling or ingesting the product? (Ventilation used as needed, and nose filters are available upon request)
If the answer to any of these questions is "no," you are not protected from the unapproved use of DHA. You should request measures to protect your eyes and mucous membranes and prevent inhalation.
An airbrush tan will not protect your skin from burning in the natural sun or in a UV tanning bed. Healthy, hydrated skin will hold results longer. Wait at the least 8-10 hours after your spray tanning session before showering. I recommend showering 8-10 hours after the session, preferably letting the solution develop overnight. *Use dark sheets if going to bed before showering. The initial bronzers in the spray tanning solution may transfer to clothing or fabric. The bronzers are water-soluble and will wash out of most fabrics.
All the components of the spray tanning solution have been safely used in cosmetics and nutritional products for decades and have been proven safe for the skin. If you had adverse affects utilizing self-tanning products or moisturizers in the past, you may experience similar effects with the airbrush tanning.
There are, however, occasions where individuals may be allergic to one or more ingredients in the spray
Tan solution. Please discuss this with the technician before proceeding.
We recommend that you hold your breath and close your eyes during facial spraying. We make this
recommendation because most individuals would prefer not to breathe the mist. The FDA recommends that you use Nose filters, lip protection, protective undergarments and are available upon request. The solutions aren’t considered harmful in the minimal amounts that may be inhaled in a normal spray tanning session. The bronzing effect is a result of a coloring additive in the solution that will remain on the skin until you shower. When you bathe, the initial bronzer will wash off leaving your skin with a natural looking tan.

All people, all skin, is different. All ingredients used in this procedure are intended for cosmetic use and generally regarded as safe.

Be advised there is a small percentage of people whose skin may not react favorably to spray tanning. For this reason, we do NOT advise being sprayed for the first time when your appearance is critical; (wedding/special occasion/prom) please schedule a practice session 30 days before your event, for best results.
• Common Sense Caution – Pregnant or nursing women should consult their physician, and obtain a written release before using. Spray tanning is not normally contraindicated, when a mask or nose filters are used. But each pregnancy is different; your medical care provider may prefer a more cautious approach based on your specific needs and health concerns.
• Warning – This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin to U.V. Light may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.
I have been provided with spray tan care instructions, which I have read and understand completely. To my knowledge, I have no medical condition or allergy, which would preclude me from having this procedure done. I have been honest and accurate about the information that I have provided on this waiver.
I take sole responsibility of any reaction I may have, staining of clothing and/or personal belongings.
I have read and completely understand this consent form. (Please advise your technician if you have any questions)
