The ultraviolet cabin or solarium is a device that allows you to tan using artificial ultraviolet rays emitted by lamps. Just like during sun exposure, the production of melanin is stimulated, giving the skin a darker color in only a few minutes. To ensure an even tan, our professional UV booths are equipped with two types of lamps:
- Lamps that emit low-pressure UV for the body for a quick tan
- High-pressure UV lamps for the face and chest. The skin on the face tans more easily than the skin on the body, and a greater amount of UVA rays allows for a tanned complexion in a few minutes.
Yes, it is important to remember that UV rays penetrate your skin and your eyelids are very thin. To prevent the rays from reaching and damaging your retina, you must wear UV glasses to protect yourself. Our tanning centers have them available.
Between the first and second session, you must respect a 48-hour waiting period.
Yes, the only difference is the exposure time; this is controlled in the tanning booths and not outside. A 20-minute exposure in a tanning booth corresponds to the tanning result obtained in about three hours in the natural sun.
