Spray tanning traditionally happens in a stand up booth.  As you are standing in the booth a light mist is sprayed on your body.  The great thing about getting this type of tan is your skin is not exposed to harmful UV rays.  UV rays are what lead to cancer and terrible looking skin.  The ingredient that is in the mist is called dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which comes from plant sources.  The DHA causes a chemical reaction with the your skin and provides you with that brown tanned lo0k.  DHA will live your skin looking beautiful and dark without the risk of cancer or wrinkled skin.

Spray Tanning or airbrush tanning can also be done by hand with a technician.  The advantage to having a professional tan you is that they can focus in on certain hard to reach areas.
