It's a private, self-contained system that employs a patented revolutionary spray on process to apply uniform amounts of Mystic Tan Tanning Myst to the entire body in just seconds. When the tanning session is complete, the tanner simply steps out, towels off any excess myst, dresses and exits.
Yes, the Mystic Tan product line features ingredients that are specially formulated for Sunless Tanning. They may block the tan's application and impede the development process.

MagneTan Application technology is Mystic's patented process that uses the human body's own magnetic properties to attract Mystic Tan Tanning Myst to every exposed surface of the skin. When Mystic Tan Tanning Myst passes through the patented spray nozzle, the micro-particles of myst are polarized, taking 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.
The Mystic Tan Tanning Mysts are patented self-tanning formulations designed especially for use in Mystic Tan Systems. Our Sunless tanning formulations 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 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.
DHA is dihydroxyacetone, a carbohydrate (monosaccharide sugar) compound approved by the FDA for use in externally applied sunless tanning solutions. DHA is usually derived from a vegetable source like beets or sugar cane. Its properties as a skin darkener were discovered in the 1920's but weren't marketed as sun until the 1960s when Coppertone introduced Quick Tan. It was added to the FDA's list of approved cosmetic ingredients in the 1970s. DHA is the tanning ingredients used in the Mystic Tan Tanning Myst that has produced more than 50 Million sunless tans with no documented reports of adverse effects.
Most people do not wear anything. The room is completely private and by wearing nothing you will receive the best all-over tan with no tan lines. However, if you do choose to wear a swimsuit or undergarments while in the Mystic tan booth, please be aware that the bronzers used in the solution may stain your clothes. This usually will come out after washing, but to be on the safe side you may want to wear a swim suit or undergarments that are darker in color.
Many customers wear a disposable shower cap, provided by the salon, to keep hair dry. Other customers choose to get their treatment without covering their hair. The Mystic Tan Tanning Myst does not penetrate the hair follicle. However, if you use our Insta-Color Bronzer formulation and have very light or white hair, it may become temporarily stained.
To give the DHA enough time to fully set, we recommend waiting a minimum of 8 hours after a Mystic Tan Session. Showering sooner may diminish the intensity of the tan. If you tanned using our Insta-Color Bronzer formulation it will wash off in the shower, but the DHA that created your longer-lasting tan will remain.
Swimming in chlorinated water or salt water can fade the Mystic Tan results, cause possible streaking and will diminish the length of you tan. However, normal activities such as bathing, showering or physical activities will not affect the quality of the tan.
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 Myst covers the entire body in the exact amount required to produce a smooth, even, natural-looking tan.
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.
