Re: Infinity Sun????????

Eileen,
thanks for the information. How far from the body are you tanning with the lite? I was told to tan3 1/2 inches. How quick do you suggest I tan? I am willing to do anything to help my clients tan quicker. I would love to see the fans you use. We are going to have to update our fan. Since you also have used the spa you might be able to help. I asked infinity sun which settings on the lite compare to the low medium high setting on the spa but they didn't know. If you normally tan your client on high with the spa which setting on the lite compares? Same for the low and medium? I wish I could see a video of you tanning someone with the lite. It just seems different than the spa. Thanks again!!

Re: Infinity Sun????????

What's the brand name on the fan? Do you use two fans per client?

Re: Infinity Sun????????

It's a Honeywell Turbo fan. They are relatively quiet and very light. I would say I'm more like 6 inches to 10 inches with the spa lite and most comfortable on medium 2 so far. I'm still practicing with it. I haven't charged for a tan with it yet. :)

Re: Infinity Sun????????

Thanks, NoSunTan and Eileen, this site is really helpfull and appreciate you both getting back to me. I have my new solution coming Thursday and have a few bodies lined up , so I will let you know how it goes. I think I will try a fan too, it does take a long time to dry and messes up when they put their clothes on, which didn't happen to me when I had a spray tan , maybe thats why you pay the extra for the spa portable. I will try a fan next time too. I must say with doing only 6 bodies, I am really happy with the color. I know I just need practice and feedback.

Re: Infinity Sun????????

I have been using the Spa Lite since March. I have probably sprayed over 60-70 bodies with it. NoSunTan your settings sound about right. I spray very fair people who don't want a "tan" but rather a "glow" on a Low 10 - Med 3. To achieve a medium tan I go from Medium 3 - 7 and anyone who wants to be very tan, I usually stay on a medium setting and go over their body with a few more passes vs moving the setting higher. I don't really have to dry my clients that much. I go over them with the "air only" for a few minutes and have them try not to put clothes on for 5-10 minutes if possible. If they still seem a little damp I suggest thy use a hair dryer and dry. I always suggest they put on a robe or loose t-shirt if they can for at least an hour (sundresses are good too). I am spraying fairly quickly. I haven't used a Spa so I can't compare but I move quickly at about 4-6 inches from the body. I ended up buying an extraction fan but have yet to use it at a party. I am having great results with mine. I always very lightly spray hands and feet (no where near as dark as the body because they are much drier and get dark easily) and do lightly apply barrier cream to them when I prep the client. Hope this helps!

Re: Infinity Sun????????

Hi Everyone!

I have had my Spa Lite for just a few weeks. I am running into some issues as well. I LOVE my Infinity Sun Spa, and have had 0 issues with that (I've had it for almost 1 year), so this is starting to concern me. My business is mainly mobile, so I REALLY NEED this machine to work! My main issue is color. The upper body is ridiculously light compared to the lower body. I realize it takes time for the solution to get through the hose, but the difference is embarrassing. I've tried everything: spraying closer, slower, darker, and I've even set the machine on a chair to see if gravity will work with me. LOL~ I'm LOST!! If anyone has ANY suggestions at all, I would be SO appreciative!!

Re: Infinity Sun????????

Turn up the nozzle at least 2 notches when your doing the top and then lower it as you move to the bottom. I honestly need to do some bodies as well to give better advice. I haven't used it enough yet. I keep getting people sprayed for weddings so I'm staying with the regular spa for important events for now.

Re: Infinity Sun????????

Thanks Eileen! I'm the same way. I've had so many wedding tanners, I want to stick with the Spa just to stay on the safe side. I'm going to take your advice and test it tonight on my sister in law. I'll keep you posted! Thanks again!

Re: Infinity Sun????????

I have the Infinity Sun Spa and love it.

The speed at which you spray really does effect your clients drying time. When we first began using the machine, it was taking our clients a while to dry (esp in the chest area) and with Veronique's help, we realized that we were spraying too slowly. Once we increased the speed in which we sprayed, the drying time went down considerably. Since then, we haven't had anyone mess up their bronzer when getting dressed, etc. We also haven't needed fans for drying. We spray about about 4-5 inches away from the body, which, combined with going faster, also seems to significantly decrease the amount of overspray. She suggested drying with the air dryer for 2 minutes on the back, 2 on the front, and 5 before getting dressed. You can also use a hair dryer on the low heat setting, which our clients enjoy as it is a bit warm and feels good on the skin.
