The health risks associated with prolonged exposure to the sun are well-known. Nevertheless, you still may encounter clients who believe that getting a suntan the old-fashioned way rather than through the airbrush method is better because it’s “more natural.”
Spray tanning does have a few minor risks associated with it and you shouldn’t hide this from your clients. But most of them pertain to a very tiny minority of individuals who have specific pre-existing health conditions. They include:
The main ingredient for spray tanning solutions is dihydroxyacetone (DHA). While this all-natural ingredient is usually very well tolerated by the skin, some people who have exceptionally sensitive skin can develop a rash.
People with healthy respiratory systems have no problem with airbrush tanning, especially since airbrush tanning technicians must make sure that clients’ noses, lips and mouths are protected throughout the procedure.
However, if your client has asthma, then he or she may need to consider another form of self-tanning. This condition can make it hard for some individuals to get oxygen during the a brief time that the spray gun is engaged and casting spray tanning solution on the body.
Some people may experience mild eye irritation during the spray tan process. However, this can be easily eliminated by using tanning goggles.
