SPRAY TAN TIPS
24-48 hours prior to session
to remove dirt and oils from body. Feel free to wash your hair during this time as well, because it is not recommended to use soap or shampoo for 24 hours after your spray tan.
we suggest doing this prior to your session in order to prevent having to do it after. Shaving will always remove color from the applied area, so the longer you can hold off the better. Avoid using razors with moisture strips to reduce residue that can block the spray.
be sure to remove any dead skin or residual spray tan prior to your session. Doing so will increase the life of your tan and produce flawless results. Failure to do so could lead to a short lived spray tan and uneven fade.
Do not put on any lotion, make-up or deodorant prior to your session. These products will block the spray tan and interfere with your results. If you do come in with product on your body, ask for a cleansing mitt so you can remove the product off before you spray.to remove dirt and oils from body. Feel free to wash your hair during this time as well, because it is not recommended to use soap or shampoo for 24 hours after your spray tan.
Feel free to wear whatever you’re comfortable in for your spray tan session. If you would like disposable undergarments please ask. After your session be sure to change into loose clothing that will not rub or disturb your fresh spray tan.
Keep an eye on the weather the day of your spray tan. If it looks like rain bring an umbrella, long sleeve shirt, sweatpants, and closed toed shoes. Remember you cannot get wet or sweat while your spray tan is processing. If you happen to get wet please give us a call right away so we can assist you.
Once your processing time has concluded you can rinse off in the shower using warm water only. Take your hands and using a circular motion wash off your body till the water runs clear. Do not use soap or harsh materials on the first rinse. After please dab dry with a towel.
Apply religiously after your rinse and in the days that follow. This is key to maintaining your spray tan and a clean fade. Using the right kind of moisturizer is just as important. Please stay away from heavily scented, low-grade lotions containing Mineral Oil. Ask about our Professional Tanning Products and get 25% off our tan-extenders.
Water and physical activity are allowed after your first rinse. Keep in mind that your tan will not last as long if you are swimming and engaging in physical activity on a regular basis. To help with that we recommend a self-tanner to help with the up-keep of certain areas.
Ask us about our Profesional Self-Tanners.
You can achieve a tan without tanning lotion, but why would you do that to your skin? When you tan you are depleting your skin of moisture and vitamins, which speeds up the aging process. Tanning lotion contains high-quality bronzing and skin-care ingredients that not only allow you to tan faster, but they will help you maintain the integrity of your skin!
We cannot emphasize this enough! As a tanner you shed your skin twice a month meaning your tan will fade a lot easier. Using the right kind of lotion is key. Stay away from heavily perfumed products and cheap drug-store lotions. Ask about our professional moisturizers made and tailored for a tanners skin. Moisturizing religiously will give you a healthy looking glow!
Moderation is key. Tanning 2-3 times a week is sufficient enough to achieve and maintain your tan. Working your way up to full time and building color slowly is the smart way to tan, so make sure you give yourself enough time to build before your event. Keep building color by switching up your exposure and lotions to avoid tanning plateaus. Please note that we do not allow clients to tan on top of a sunburn.

Hands down the best tanning salon in lakeland! Steph, thank you so much for color matching for our wedding party that was so important to us❤️. You took someone who hadn’t seen sun in quite some time and matched them perfectly to an individual who had been tanning in the beds for months! There is ABSOLUTELY NO ONE who can customize a color the way you do in town to perfection! Thank you for being so patient with them being it was their first time ever getting a spray tan or being in a tanning salon. It was also comforting knowing you were available after the spray tan if we ran into any issues, which we didn’t. They are very excited to return for their second spray session which they have already scheduled! I cannot leave out your PREMIER SERVICE STAFF that never fails to always take care of the clients. I also appreciate you and your staff always furthering your education and attending different seminars bringing your customers new tanning products, and always being so knowledgeable and educating us on all the latest trends happening with the lotions.
Oh my word! These ladies are THE best. They know their products, know how to direct you and work with you to get your perfect shade of tan. Stephanie is phenomenal especially with sprays and even contouring! Place is always very clean, and staff is friendly! Just go!
I love Liv Tan and all the ladies who take care of us! They are so welcoming and helpful! Im obsessed with how amazing their airbrush tans are and I’m also a new fan of their top knotch spray booth! My tans always look beautiful! Never orange! I love Liv Tan!
Liv Tan has the best spray tanning services I have ever had. They spend time understanding what you want (and what you don’t want) so you get the very best spray tan for you. Stephanie and the whole staff go out of their way to make sure the experience is excellent and the results last.
I was a little nervous it was my first time having someone do the spray tanning on me, but Grace was really nice and make me feel really comfortable. I was worried I was going to be orange but no the color was beautiful. I went to the beach the next day (my birthday) with a beautiful tan color. Will be going back before my vacation to the Keys. I’m very sensitive to the Sun having the spray is a great opportunity to have a great color. Definitely will recommend Liv Tan in Lakeland to everyone who wants to get a great tan color and service. Gracias Grace and Karissa.
The team at Liv Tan was able to fit us in last minute. The service they provided was so professional and yet still down to earth and made us feel so comfortable! And our spray tans turned out amazing!! If your having trouble deciding where to go this is your sign that Liv Tan is your place!
Hands down best tanning salon around. Love the Spray tan with the gun. Even and very natural and lasts awhile !!!!
My go to spray tan spa! Love the owner and her passion!
I’ve been going to this tanning salon for 14 years so that tells you how much I love this salon and the staff. Best airbrush tans that will make you feel confident at your next event. They are constantly running specials so if you’ve been on the fence, definitely go check them out. You won’t be disappointed
Best spray tan I’ve ever had. I’ve had lots of custom spray tans but never had someone go into so much detail and blend my hands so well! The color looks so natural! Love it!
Love how the staff make a point to remember their clients' names! Makes it more personal. Clean facility and friendly staff.
Second time here in this place is just awesome it's old but it's clean it's nice it's like new kept up real well staff's awesome it's just a real nice place
Absolutely love this place wish I could go more my tanning Boutique has closed and I tried their services they actually give you your first session free they have an amazing price has been wonderful the most up-to-date beds I've ever seen is a luxury to be able to go in there and the staff is very personable
I’ve been going to LIV TAN for over a year. I’ve found the workers are very helpful and willing to service you in a welcoming manner. Stephanie mentioned a new machine they offered for anti-aging , anti inflammatory etc. which is the Poly Red Light Therapy Machine; I decided to give it a try. It’s wonderful for anti-inflammatory. It really has helped my 24/7 pain immensely and highly recommend it. I have a rare disease call Cauda Equina Syndrome or (CES). Your Cauda Equina or also known as your horse tail is the bottom of your spine where all the nerves endings come out. This causes much pain from your waste down to your toes. Many Dr’s. Still aren’t even aware of this disease. It can affect your upper body as well. I’ve juster started using this machine 48 hours ago on my lumbar and legs and my pain has subsided at least by 90% and a better option then using pain killers. I would highly recommend this machine for all having pain issues. Cost is very reasonable unlimited use and only $10 per monthly and the treatment is only 15 minutes. You can only do one treatment per day, but you can do extra areas, for an additional cost. Place is wonderful! Thank you all Stephanie, Grace, KayLeigh, Abby, Heather and any others that work there.

As an easy burner I was nervous about using tanning beds for the first time. They were very informative and professional! Great prices. I was appreciative of the many pricing options so I could choose exactly what I needed. Will definitely be going back! Everything is clean and the atmosphere is relaxing and calm
Friendliest staff and best beds in the area.
Great experience and a great staff.
I've been going to this tanning salon for over a year. During this time I have NOT ONE SINGLE COMPLAINT to mention. I've never seen anyone else have any issues here either. This establishment is ALWAYS super clean, the beds are phenomenal, the staff is always very accommodating and helpful. Grace is a sweetheart and she is down to earth. I drive from North Lakeland to come here, although it's further it is definitely worth the extra drive!!!
Great place staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Great value!!
I signed up with my best friend and I am really happy that she introduced me! Every one very nice and welcoming. Very informative. Good atmosphere. I feel like a valued person there! These girls do well!
The girls are so sweet and they show you everything when giving you a tour of the place and explain everything in great detail. The best are great and I usually don't spray tan but wanted to try the awesome spray tan booth which gave amazing results. Glad I decided to switch from where I use to go and came here.. Thanks and will recommend to anyone.
Clean, friendly, helpful and professional staff. New beds with new lamps. I highly recommend.
First time tanning - great first encounter with front desk she explained everything ( sorry forgot her name ) a lot of information to take in, location was nice - the rooms and beds as well very impressed
Molly was extremely helpful and polite.
Staff is very helpful and informative. They show you how to use the beds and make recommendations specifically for you. I absolutely love tanning here!
I’ve tanned at several locations locally and out of state but image sun is really set apart in their price options, beds and top of the line updated equipment. I highly recommend their salon. When you come in you are always welcomed and helped with great attitudes and staff that are willing to help and answer as many questions that you have. You never will feel rushed in or out and they have a large selection of lotions and tanning accessories.
They have the sweetest employees and really are a good business. It’s always clean and the beds are great! 100/10 would recommend 🙂
I absolutely LOVEEEE this place! I started tanning there about a month ago and am so happy with the results! Image Sun has been around for over a decade and I’ve heard nothing but great things about them. I decided to start tanning because it has been like 10 years since I’ve done something like this for myself. I believe it has enhanced my quality of life. We all know how stressful life can be and to be able take 10 minutes out of my day to completely pamper myself makes ALL the difference in the world. The beds are AMAZING! I’ve never seen anything like them around here before. I love all the beds but the Ergoline is probably my favorite because of the red light therapy. I was astonished to see how rapidly my skin cleared up. In a matter of two days after using that bed, my pimples disappeared! I like how customers have the option of choosing between two plans (premium beds or regular beds), depending on what you want. The prices are unbeatable. I also like how you have the option to freeze your membership for only $5 a month in case something unexpected happens or you’re going on vacation for a while, etc. I want to emphasize how much I love and appreciate all the staff members. They work very hard to make sure their customers have a great experience and are extremely knowledgeable about the tanning process. They are so friendly and personable, which naturally makes your tanning experience even better 🙂 When I signed up, Grace helped me and explained the contingencies of the plan in a way I could easily understand. She is a sweetheart. Image Sun is also kept very clean by the staff. The beds are spotless, the floor and carpet is clean, the trash cans in the rooms are never ever full (if anything is even in there). There have been many occasions where I’ve seen and heard the staff spraying and wiping things down, vacuuming, and doing laundry. All of this just shows how much they care. To anyone on here that has expressed frustration at Image Sun for not being able to tan twice in a 24 hr period: anything that’s “high quality” follows the rules and regulations placed on it, period. The fact that Image Sun ensures they are practicing within their legal limits simply tells me they CARE and gives me all the more reason to rave about them.
Their tanning beds are awesome It's worth the drive n the young ladies working there are awesome too
Image sun is the best in Lakeland and worth the drive, top notch beds .....and open great hours !! The price is substantially lower than competitors, though the beds are higher quality . Toni
I love this ace! I highly recommend this place. Staff is friendly and very helpful. The tanning beds are new and the best!
I've been to tanning salons all over the country during my business travels. This salon is the cleanest, most professional, and best run location I've ever been to. The beds are always working, very powerful, and 99% of the time there is no wait because they have so many beds. The knowledge the employees have about the beds and products is second to none. I can't rave enough about this place.
Haven't tanned in a little over 2 years so I thought I'd try Image Sun due to their extended hours meeting my schedule. So glad I did; great staff and best beds in this area.
So friendly and great prices! Love their beds and all of the staff are sweet and knowledgeable! Very helpful as well!
Best place to go! The staff is fantastic and the beds are amazing! Great selection of tanning products as well. I highly recommend going to Image Sun!
I started tanning here less than a month ago. I have to say this is the most professional and clean tanning place that I’ve been too. Grace is one of my favorite person there!! She is very personable and knowledgeable. Thank you!!!

If you’re looking for great prices, knowledgeable staff AND high quality taming beds, this is where you need to tan! Stephanie and her team are so friendly and exceed in customer service. Try the cocktail tan. Spray tan first, then dry off in the stand up! You won’t be disappointed.
I love this place. They have the best tanning and the nicest people
