Tanning Process

The specifics and essentials of having a dark deep tan needs a thorough assessment. Customers of indoor tanning facilities are most concerned about getting a tan that is safe and convenient. The indoor tanning industry is always at work to innovate and create technologies and products that will make it easier and safer for everyone to benefit from a total skin makeover and enjoy the beauty of a healthy tan.

How does uv light produce a tanning affect on our skin? When we talk about tanning, it always involves the exposure of our skin to UV or Ultraviolet rays. Our sun naturally emits these so called rays. Indoor tanning also harnesses the ability of UV rays to give us a dark tan in a controlled environment. The moment these rays touch our body, our skin undergoes a chemical change. Basically, this tanning process involves a particular group of cells found in our skin called melanocytes. When exposed to UVB light, melanocytes produce the pigment melanin. In the beginning, this pigment may appear pinkish. But that’s where the UVA light rays come into play. These particular light rays oxidize the melanin, and turn it dark in color. Altogether, this is what creates the “Tanning” affect. This natural process is your skin’s way of protecting itself from possible damage from too much UV light. Through this process, the color of our skin changes. It is important for people to understand this normal biological process that happens to your body during the tanning sessions.

More and more frequently we hear various studies that warning against excessive sun exposure, especially in areas where the sun can be intense, such as the Dallas sun. Statistics of skin cancer have made some people very nervous when it comes to any exposure to sunlight. As a result, some people have become solar phobes. However, direct UV sunlight is not only beneficial for the human body, but is necessary in order for your body to create Vitamin D. The key is to control your exposure and keep it to moderation. The indoor tanning salon offers an environment that makes this type of exposure possible.
