HELP !! SPOTS ON SKIN THAT WONT TAN

Ok so I have this client and she did a trial tan before her event and when i went to tan her yesterday she said last time i tanned her she had some spots on her arms that were white. she said it happened when she used to tan from tanning beds so im thinking its nothing i did and its something with her skin.

i tanned her yesterday again and her big event is tonight. she let me know this morning that it happened again, so im trying to firgure out what it might be from? any help or suggestions would be great!

I'm interested to learn from responses to your post. Received a call from someone recently who frequents tanning beds and has white spots appearing on her skin too.

Use caution when "diagnosing" a customer with a medical condition and then giving them a "treatment."

Re: HELP !! SPOTS ON SKIN THAT WONT TAN

Halt works wonders on SUN SPOTS, but if she has lost pigment in her skin (as we have a few clients who have that disorder) it will never tan. She would have to use stage makeup. If there is no melanin in her skin in certain spots, she cannot tan. Nor would Sunless work if she has lost pigment.

CMANN,

How would they need to use the Tinactin Dandruff Shampoo and for how long? I have had a client recently have some small white spots on her upper arms and upper legs. She said she has gotten these with both Mystic Tanning and Airbrush tanning. Any ideas? She has another appointment with me Friday...

Re: HELP !! SPOTS ON SKIN THAT WONT TAN

See here is the deal, clients with Tinea Versacular come in and tan. The white spots show up because it prevents the skin from tanning in those areas. This is not from tanning and it is not something that the customer got from a tanning salon. The fact that the rest of the surrounding skin is tanning just makes the pre existing condition evident.

What Tinea Versacular is, is a fungus that grows on the skin surface. It is pretty common and it is not contracted from tanning beds or spray booths. Remedies are applying Selsun Blue shampoo, sun spot remover, prescription ointment, etc... to thew affected areas for two to three weeks and it will go away.

Everyone freaks out that they think it is because of tanning but it is not, it is just that the tanning makes it more noticeable. Educate yourselves on this and then educate your customers. Burying the myths starts with educating yourselves about all aspects of the industry that you work in.

Thanks for the info. She does not get these spots from tanning beds or outdoor tanning just any sunless tanning.
