High Pressure Tanning
There are two main types of ultraviolet light, UVA and
UVB. All tanning beds use a combination of these two
rays, which contribute differently to the tanning process.
Tanning takes place in the skin's outermost layer, the epidermis. When
exposed to UVB light melanocytes located within the
epidermis produce melanin, which causes the skin to
redden. When exposed to UVA light, the melanin oxidizes and causes the
skin to darken to a deep golden brown.
Low-pressure beds are equipped with fluorescent type tubes, which emit
high amounts of UVB rays. High-pressure bulbs are much smaller in size and
can be used to tan the face of the full body. A unique filter system
allows Ultrabronz beds to filter out most of the UVB rays, using just
enough to stimulate the melanin leaving the UVA rays to darken the skin.
The skinny on high-pressure
Tanning is actually the body's natural defense mechanism for protecting
against the sun's rays. Normally, the outer layer of skin exfoliates every
28 days but when exposed to high concentrations of UVB rays, the body is
forced to exfoliate prematurely every 5-10 days. This is why low-pressured
tanners must tan more frequently to keep the outer layer of their of their
skin looking brown.
Because the UltraBronz filters out most of the UVB rays, your skin is
able to maintain normal exfoliation, which in turn allows your skin to
stay tan much longer!
The UltraBronz's SPA (18 minute session) provides color results
immediately! While low pressured tanning beds require 10-15 visits to
establish a base tan, an Ultrabronz bed only requires 3-4 sessions.
Maintaining a tan had never been easier. Two to three visits a month will
sustain the dark golden results you crave, Think of all the valuable time
you will save by using Ultrabronz.
