Sun Bed & Tanning

Our sunbed sessions are only valid for 3 months from the date of purchase. We service our Onyx Sunbed regularly. Nu-Tan and Kalahari tanning products are available in Salon.



Each Nu-Tan silver sachet has 2 patches inside.

To use a patch:
Clean an area on the arm. Let it dry thoroughly.
Remove a patch from the package. Do NOT touch the centre of the patch. Remove the white strip from the patch and attach it to the cleaned and dried area.
Press it down with with your palm to make sure it is securely attached. Sometimes you will feel the micro needles.
After two to three hours remove the patch. You can keep it on overnight and remove it in the morning.
Once removed, discard the patch. Do not remove within two hours.
Use one patch every day, every second or third day.

Within 24 hours after patch is removed:
20 min in a sunbed
30 min laying out in the sun. (15 minutes on a side) Do not burn. Start out slow and work your way up to full time.

If you will be spending more than 30 minutes in the sun make sure to apply sunblock after 30 minutes outside.

In the sun you will get tan lines as nu-tan creates a natural tan NOT a fake tan. Sunblock on the face is still compulsory!! Otherwise your face will go darker than the rest of your body.

To activate your tan from Nu-Tan you do need UV treatment! If you do not get frequent UV exposure you will not get results quickly. No or little UV treatment will only make your freckles and sunspots go darker and leave your skin color unchanged.
UV once or twice a week will not activate your tan!

Once you reach your desired tan you switch over to the maintenance phase. This is to keep your tan.
One patch with one UV session a week OR one patch twice a week with two UV sessions.
If you go to dark, skip a week or two with no UV and patches.

Side effect:
Some users get these side effects the first couple of days until the body is used to the nu-tan substance
* burning or tingling where the patch is
* flushing of the face

Not everyone experience the above mentioned side effects, but they are common.

Who cannot take Nu-Tan?
People with heart problems.
People with cancer.
Woman who are pregnant.

Why? Because we do not have any data available on the interactions of Nu-Tan with the above mentioned conditions.

Nu-Tan was developed for those who struggle to tan, always burn, blister then peel and white all over again. With Nu-Tan that will never happen again!
People who tend to tan easily or those who can build a tan over time without burning or peeling uses Nu-Tan to speed up the tanning process so that they spend less time in the sun.

So when can you expect results?
Depending on your skin type and how thoroughly you follow the instructions, you can reach a tan within 10 – 30 days. Skin type 1 will take much longer to get a tan than skin type 3.
Some users will need more than one kit to get optimal results.

Once your packet is opened, use within 3 months.
Sealed packs must be used within 18 months from purchase date.
