How it works…
Every living thing sheds (exfoliates) its outer layer, and we normally exfoliate our outer layer of skin about every 28 days. Tanning with UVB light accelerates this cycle to somewhere between five and ten days. Since UVB light tans the outer layer of skin which exfoliates every five to ten days, we fade if we let more that just a few days go by between tanning sessions. Also, in response to UVB, our outer layer of skin thickens as a natural barrier to further UV exposure. It is this thickening that contributes to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Because ULTRABRONZ high-pressure beds tan only with UVA light, our body is allowed to return to its normal 28 day cycle. High-pressure tanning also tans the second and third layers of skin, so even when your outer layer naturally exfoliates, the layers beneath are still tan.
UVA light does not cause the outer layers of skin to thicken, so tanning on the ULTRABRONZ sunbed minimizes skin damage and premature aging. High-pressure tanning truly is th safest way to tan. UVB rays are responsible for burning. ULTRABRONZ sunbeds have 0% UVB rays. Compare this to 17.5% UVB from the sun and 6-10% from conventional low-pressure beds.
One 24 minute treatment in the ULTRABRONZ high-pressure sunbed is equivalent to twelve treatments in a conventional low-pressure bed.
A course of three treatments will give you a deep, natural tan. To maintain this tan, only one to two treatments per month is necessary.
We suggest you visit three to four times in a ten day period to establish a base tan. After that, most people need only visit once or twice a month to maintain color year round.
What’s more, our bed is built to give you a lot more space, so you won’t feel claustrophobic when you climb in. And since the lamps are all positioned the upper panel, you can lie comfortably on a mattress and forget about racing stripes and untanned spots because of pressure points.
