Rep Power: 0 celinda is on a distinguished road
I have just visited my first Euro Tan and entered the Suncapsule! I went for the first time tanning in many years, so eased into a six(6)minute session, put on the winkeze(sp) and applied a bit of lotion, total cost a little over $twenty bucks, $14 for the tan, free winkeze for my first visit, and $5 bucks for John Abate lotion. Anyway, it's been about an hour now since the session, and my back feels a bit, um, sunburned? I don't know for sure, but I'm pretty certain. My concern is this: if six minutes for a "virgin tanner" is too much, what should I have started out with? The Smart Tan certified gal didn't seem to think 6 was too long. (ps, the reason for the research on myself, is because I am looking at purchasing a lightsteam from suncapsule) so I wanted to check it out for myself. Any insight? Celinda

Did the salon do a skin typing form on you to determine how long your first session should be? Or did they just guesstimate?

There are many different types of SunCapsules. In a 160 watt initial tan time for a type 3 at 6 minutes should be fine. In a 200 watt it should be 5 minutes.

FACT:
A sun burn takes about 8 hours after your exposure to show up and peek.

There is no way your back could show a burn 1 hour after tanning in a uva machine.

6 min for the first session would be fine unless your an albino or taking photsensitizing drugs.

Well, here is the day after Suncapsule! I have no burns, skin seems good, breasts a little pink, but good day after I think! I didn't use a tingle lotion, just his base, before lotion, little sample, white container.I didn't have my skin typing done, she didn't seem to want to. I said, based on the chart on the wall, I would like to go 6 mins. This is a perfect ten euro tan, 200 watt, as far as I can tell. Anyway, that is the follow up from yesterday, thanks for the posts. It was helpful. Celinda

actually she was saying her back feels a little sunburned, and yes you could feel a burn after just a few minutes, I actually had a customer tan and come out from the bed only three minutes into his session and came out red, it was the first time it ever happened. But it does...
