Dubai: Mystic Tan and Versa Spa Tanning BOOTHS

Spray tanning works by applying a special mist to the body. This mist is sprayed onto the body and you can now find this service at most high-end tanning salons and spas. The mist emitted contains dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which is a chemical that reacts with skin cells by cosmetically dyeing them golden brown. So after spray tanning, the skin takes on a golden brown color that looks ( or should look)  like a natural tan.

When it comes to LOOKS, there is something about the way a healthy bronze tan can make you feel. The warm sun kissed glow enhances your features and creates the aura of health and vitality that lends beauty and confidence to every step you take. Whenever you get back from a vacation, the first thing friends comment on and notice, is your great tan, or lack thereof. Tanning has been popular since the early 20th century, but the health risks associated with the sun’s UV rays have made maintaining an even tan – much less any kind of tan – difficult. Enter indoor tanning salons, which became a popular trend in the ’80s. Now, indoor tanning is a $2 billion-a-year industry in the United States alone.

Due to Sunless MENA’s recent activity one can opt to have in their salon either a fully automatic spray tanning booth (Mystic Tan® and VersaSpa®  ) or one can have the tanning solution sprayed directly on to the body ( EVOLV. ®) by a trained specialist certified by our staff at Sunless MENA. Spray tanning salons are becoming more common and chances are your customers are already using spray tanning from other salons and local beauty clinics. The quality of the tan however differs greatly because this form of sunless tanning is effective based on the type of equipment used. The 3 spray tanning systems proposed by Sunless MENA are technically most advanced and offer the client a superior, luxurious and even tan. Some spray tanning machines are not as accurate and also not as safe. A person who is new to all of this won’t be able to tell a difference by looking at the equipment but the end result is what matters and also making sure a customer will return for the service.

The solutions used by all our machines at Sunless MENA are 100% NATURAL with no additives or chemicals. They have been registered and fully certified by the UAE’s Ministry of Health and the Municipality. 

It is no secret why millions of people choose to go sunless. Sunless tanning adds beautiful natural color without the high risk of exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays.

  • VersaSpa® is no ordinary sunless booth. It is an open booth concept that is trusted and used in North America and Europe for the past decade. As well, VersaSpa® was voted the best tanning system worldwide in 2008.

The brand new VersaSpa® airbrush spray tanning booth is very different from any other spray tan booth. VersaSpa® offers you an open booth design that airbrushes with a prep spray, a self tanner bronzer (in three different color levels), and a moisturizing color extending spray. You can pick to have all three of these applications for the best and longest lasting results, or choose just the sprays that best fit your needs.
You DON’T NEED TO TAN YOUR WHOLE BODY!! You can choose to have only your face and/or legs sprayed.

The customer can choose to get your whole body tanned, or choose just your face and/ or legs. There are three sprays- a prep spray, the bronzer spray (one can choose three different color levels: the light spray tan is best suited for fair skinned people who are after the “health glow” look. the medium spray tan is suited to most skin types, and is our most popular spray tan option, then the dark spray tan is only suitable for those with dark complexions who are after the “deep bronzed” look), and a moisturizing after tan spray. You can choose to do one of these or all three for the best and longest lasting tan. The VersaSpa® will also provide you with a heated air drying cycle.

You will have INSTANT color! Wait a minimum 4 to 6 hours before you shower, sweat, or get your skin wet in any way.

The longer you leave the spray on before showering the DARKER you will become. After your first shower the initial bronzer will wash off. Feel free to put a body sticker on before you get sprayed so you can see the color increase and how long your color lasts. VersaSpa® is no ordinary Sunless booth!  Bronze, hydrate and smooth fine lines in one session. Customize your tanning application by selecting one or combining all 3 full body treatments-one of twosunless bronzing treatments, and post-sunless super hydrating treatment. Enjoy the process as much as the results and relax with a wide open interior design.

The VersaSpa® system is a full-body treatment system that allows you to select from a combination of solutions that will bronze and smooth your skin and won’t turn you orange! You are guaranteed to have natural, flawless and even results. This treatment allows you to be beautifully bronzed whether you have a very pale skin coloring at the time of your first VersaSpa® experience or to further deepen your tan if you already have great color.

Rather than simple tinting, VersaSpa® creates a complete spa-like session that results in a healthy, natural look of sun-kissed skin.

  • Evolv. Sidekick™ is the first-ever, heat-infused airbrush tanning system, developed by the professionals who brought you the World’s most recognized and trusted sunless brands: Mystic Tan® and VersaSpa®. Developed by the professionals, the Sidekick combines advanced chemistry, groundbreaking engineering and unparalleled convenience to deliver a specially formulated, vitamin-enriched, fully customizable, tanning application every time you turn it on. Evolv. ® combines the features of both Mystic Tan HD® and VersaSpa®, but in a portable manual application unit.This is an Evolution. It is time to evolve with EVOLV. Sidekick™.

Perfect for Mobile Services (at home or on location), it is light and easy to carry! It comes with a pop-up tent that is reusable and washable. Now it’s the time to say good-bye to the days of chilly temperatures, messy sessions and long development time of traditional spray tans.

A special light weight handheld spray gun blows out warm air as well as three formulas that prime, tan and moisturize the skin. The heat is used in three very important ways. First, the heat is gently blown across the skin, making it supple and receptive for maximum absorption. Second, the heat is actually infused into the spray, making it literally melt into your skin, creating an airbrush application you can barely feel being applied. Third, it’s used to keep you warm and dry throughout the entire application process which is not only for comforting purposes as the warmth allows the pores to open up and become supple, a much better canvas for a tanning solution than goose bumps. Odor removers and an accelerator option makes the tan develop in two to four hours, rather than the typical eight.
The shade of bronze is tailor-made to fit the demands of individual tan lovers everywhere! Whether you want a light “sun kissed” look or a dark “Caribbean” tan, you’ll love the fast drying, non-sticky, streak-free formulas. Professional airbrush tan technicians, will work with you one-on-one to evaluate your desired results and come up with a personalized application.

It’s not just a tan; it’s a healthy skin treatment, too. Skin firming formula builds and restores the skin’s matrix, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, spider veins, cellulite, stretch marks, birthmarks and other flaws.

Connector says VersaSpa, Dubai’s safest tanning experience

“As someone that loves to have a golden glow, but does not want the ageing effects of serious sunbathing, I’ve been a fake tan fan for some time. Over the years I‘ve tried many options from DIY bronzers and creams to various salon options, so I was interested to check out VersaSpa, Dubai’s latest spray tanning booth located at Omaria Beauty & Gents Salon.

What’s involved??I opted for the multi-treatment that bronzes, hydrates and smoothens fine lines in a two minute session. It starts out as a normal tanning booth experience in that you strip off (or down to your undies if you prefer) and the beauty therapist applies a protective cream to your hands and feet. You step into the booth and the voice automated system guides you through the treatment application that involves simply turning and changing position when instructed.  ??The three step session starts with the pre-sunless pH balancing treatment that balances the skin’s pH levels, increasing absorption, and maximizing hydration. Step two is the sunless bronzing treatment that contains DHS, amino acids, aloe and other professional-grade ingredients that work to condition and moisturize your skin while dramatically increasing its color depth. The post-sunless super hydrating treatment finishes, offering a blend of skin soothing botanicals, soy proteins, green tea extracts to replenish the skin’s vital nutrients diminishing fine lines and deepening the golden color. Once the blow dry is complete you are free to dress, preferably in loose, dark clothing, and carry on with your day. However, you should not swim, shower or work out for at least four hours to allow the tan to develop.??What results can you expect??The result was excellent and I was incredibly happy with the depth of color of the tan, and had no tell-tale signs like streaky ankles or orange knees. There was also no hint of the pungent smell that is sometimes associated with fake tanning. My golden glow lasted for over a week and gradually faded like a normal tan would, and my skin felt soft and smooth.??(…)”

Timeout Dubai Says: “Mystic Tan HD, speedy new spray tan in Dubai”

“The promise”

Using paraben-free products, the Mystic Tan spray-tan formula is apparently tailored to each client’s complexion, from a hint of a glow to a dark bronze. The fragrance-free bronzer base (promising none of that gross self-tan scent) has high concentrations of antioxidants, and the tanner can be customised with fragrances, temporary bronzer in a selection of shades, and an enhancer to prolong the colour.

The tanning booth

New to the UAE, this is a spacious booth with semi-transparent walls so you won’t feel claustrophobic. The nifty machine has voice automation to guide you through the tanning process, warming heaters to keep you comfy and reduce drying times, and is even self-cleaning after every treatment.

Step by step

Unlike some spray tans, where the therapist sprays you down or mans the machine, this is completely controlled by the customer. After choosing a medium shade to flatter my pasty skin tone, I also opt for a coconut and lime scented aroma capsule, and an enhancer to make the most of the promised glow. The preparations for the Mystic Tan are spelled out on the wall next to the booth, and look surprisingly simple: a matter of stripping off, protecting my hair with a net, and slathering blending cream onto dry areas such as hands, feet and elbows.

After that, it’s just a matter of getting in the booth (surprisingly spacious, like a tanning Tardis), waving my hand in front of the no-touch starting sensor, then following the simple spoken instructions. Standing on numbered footprints on the floor and holding my arms away from my body with fingers splayed, the machine counts down before enveloping me in the tan mist from bottom to top. I’m then told to turn to the right and instructed where to place my feet, before resuming the process once more. After each spray, a blast of warm air ensures I’m touch-dry. After four minutes or so, with four sprays from different angles, the session ends with another blast of air, leaving my skin dry enough for me to get dressed (pretty good compared with many self-tan treatments, where you wait an eternity for sticky lotions and creams to dry).

A glance in the mirror confirms that the temporary bronzer has done its job perfectly, giving me a subtle, healthy glow and a soft-focus sheen. My skin also smells like I’ve just applied a layer of body lotion, rather than smelly fake tan.

The results

The base tan started to develop after a couple of hours, and darkened overnight. While the color was intense (it promised around four shades darker than my normal skin tone), it was even and natural, with no streaks or splotches. The color on my body lasted about seven days before fading, although my face faded faster, after four or five days.”

Hia Magazine says: ” Mystic Tan HD, WOW what a technology!

“What is it? It’s a fully automatic spray tan booth that tans your skin in less than 5 minutes without any exposure to harmful sun or UV rays. Who knows me, knows that I never ever like to go to the beach to get a sun bath but i always craved to have that sexy seductive bronze skin, I actually never leave home during the day without putting on SPF 50 at least! So you can imagine the thrill I felt when I have learned from a friend of mine about this technological advanced machine called “Mystic Tan”.

The day before my Mystic session I had a Morrocan bath to get rid of the dead cells from my skin and exfoliate it in order to prepare my skin for the tan session. The next day I went to get my tan session and I choose the color that fit my mood, they have 4 different colors to choose from Glow to really Dark. I then choose the aroma fragrance I like from 3 different types, I was offered as well bronzer, for an instant result, and accelerator that prepares your skin for the tan session. I then walked into this beautiful fully automatic booth, the session lasted less than 3 minutes, the spray was nice, warm, cozy and smelled so nice and refreshing. The booth has an automated voice that reads the instructions out loud so it’s very easy to fallow each and every step. The result was a sexy seductive tan that should last between 7-10 days and all in under 5 minutes, wow what a technology!”
