On your first visit, one of our friendly team will have a quick consultation with you to recommend the correct number of tanning minutes for your skin type and how many sessions you’ll need to build your desired tan. They will also recommend the best tanning lotion for you to use while you’re on the sun bed to accelerate your tan.
You’ll then be shown how to safely use the sun bed and how to use your complimentary eye protection.
You can even plug your phone into our sun beds so you can relax and listen to your own music while you tan!
Each sun bed also has adjustable fans inside to keep you cool and fresh whilst tanning.
Every sun bed is sanitised after it's been used so they are always clean and fresh for you.
We guarantee you'll get the best possible tanning experience as we regularly change our lamps, so every sun bed gives the best performance.
The Sun Angel gives you a deeper, darker longer lasting tan than ordinary sun beds. It's a safe way to tan, so you can tan with confidence at Shwe Tan.
On your first visit we'll show you how to use all of the controls on the Sun Angel and we'll take a reading of your skin with the Sun Angel skin sensor. This will calculate how much UV your skin can safely take during your 20 minute tanning session.
The Sun Angel has high pressure shoulder tanners and ultra performance facial tanners to give you the best possible tan - we'll show you how to turn these up and down to your desired level.
You can adjust the temperature on the Sun Angel; you can have it up to 30degrees for those chilly days or a nice and cool 17 degrees. Plus there is a refreshing spray that you can turn on to keep you cool.
We'll show you how to use the 3D sound system - so you can listen to the music which plays through the Sun Angel or plug in your Phone or MP3 player so you can relax and listen to your own music while you tan!
Looking for 20 minutes of relaxation?
We'll show you how to turn the music off so you can have 20 minutes tanning and forty winks!
Our Lay Down Sun Bed has 3 Facial tanners, and you can choose to turn these up and down as desired.
If you're not one for confined spaces, there’s lots of room for you to move about inside our Stand Up Sun Bed.
It’s also great for getting those white bits underneath your arms, as you can hold onto the bars inside while you tan!
100, 80 and 50 minute courses can be used on both our Stand up and Lay down Sun Beds
The Sun Angel is a 20-minute Sun Bed. You scan your forehead (the darker area of your body) and your inner wrist (the paler area of your body). The Sun Bed then calculates how much UV is good for your Skin Type. As the Sun Bed takes into consideration the paler part of your skin, you are not able to burn, so the Sun Angel is a way of safe tanning. Also, because you are going on for 20-minutes you’re getting your daily dosage of UV, which means your tan builds up a lot quicker and darker. To put it into perspective, you need 2-hours’ worth of tanning to build up your base tan. This is 120 minutes on the Stand Up or Lay Down, and we advise most clients to start off at 5/6 minutes and slowly build it up, or, it is only 6 sessions on the Sun Angel. The Sun Angel is a lot less time consuming!
