High pressure Sun equipment got its name from the lamp technology used. All true high pressure sun systems utilize short quartz "HID" lamps filled with a very specific Metal Halogenide mixture that produces very high ultraviolet radiation (UVR) intensity levels. The pressure of the special gas inside the sun lamp is higher than normal atmospheric pressure, but through the translation of the German phrase "Hoch Druks Brenner" High-velocity burners or High-pressure burners the term "High Pressure" was coined.
Low pressure sun equipment was coined in much the same way, by default. The difference is that the lamps used in low pressure sun beds (identified by long tubes that run the full length of the sun bed) have a negative atmospheric pressure or "vacuum".
Both types of units can be highly effective at producing results but in recent years there has been some confusion between salon owners and customers when it comes to high pressure. Some salon owners advertise having a high pressure bed when technically speaking, they do not. Their goal is to deceive the customer, claiming equality of equipment; when in fact the difference in investment cost can be 10's of thousands of dollars per unit. The results and customer experience are also extremely different.
True High Pressure Sun Systems should provide the customer with desirable results in just a few sessions, and can be maintained with a few sessions per month. This is achieved by delivering a specific “recipe” of UV rays to the customer through special glass filters. Not all units using High Pressure lamps are capable of delivering these results, some units are problematic in their design and use poor quality lamps. We use only the highest quality quartz lamps in proven equipment for the best possible results.
The type of lamps used in "Regular" low pressure sun beds can be identified as long fluorescent tubes that run the full length of the unit. These lamps have a negative atmospheric pressure or "vacuum".
Most low pressure sun beds today (except vertical units) may have one or more high pressure facials and several low pressure body sun lamps, this combination is typical and doesn’t make the unit a “high pressure” or “medium pressure” unit.
These "regular" sun beds mimic natural sunlight and help build what is referred to as a "Base". They vary in size and power and thus maximum session time and have a higher UVB output than a High Pressure unit. UVB stimulates Melanin production. Clients with skin type II will prefer this type of equipment. These machines produce more Melanin in the skin and delayed pigment darkening. The thickening of the epidermis from this type of equipment may protect the skin from sensitivity in subsequent exposures like on a sunny vacation.
As the name "Hybrid" implies, this is the best of both regular and high pressure technologies combined. Immediate color and delayed pigment combine for amazing bronze results! Our most discerning clients and those with skin type III or above will love this type of equipment. Clients should expect to visit once per week to maintain results.
There are 10 levels of equipment in our salon, with 11 different styles of UV units to choose from. We also have Mystic Tan, VersaSpa and the most natural airbrush spray tanning by Fantasy Tan.
