High Contrast-Tanning

What is high-contrast tanning? It's a style of tanning that involves using teeth whiteners to help show off a great tan. Some whiteners are activated by heat in tanning beds to lift stains. Kits come with a mouthpiece and mint-flavored solution that gives professional results in minutes, during tanning sessions. Most people see results in two to four sessions. They are only meant to be used once per day, for 8 to 30 minutes. For low pressure tanning beds, it may require 25 minutes to be effective. If you have a big event coming up, or you just want to brighten your smile, take the opportunity to brighten while you tan. You can find teeth whitening supplies from your tanning bed supplies and tanning accessories dealer. Look for them at MasterTanning (www.mastertanning.com), and always follow safety recommendations from the manufacturer.

Saving Money By Purchasing Your Own Tanning Bed

Obviously the convenience of having a residential tanning bed will come with a price. Your best bet is to be fully prepared before starting your hunt for a residential tanning bed, and knowing exactly what you should expect to pay and what you are actually willing to pay.

Different residential tanning beds will have very different price tags depending on the features they offer. Generally though, you can expect to pay anywhere between $1,000 and $7,000 for a residential tanning bed. Canopy tanning beds are the cheapest, while standard residential tanning beds will cost you around $2,500. Tanning domes, which are slightly more innovative and beneficial than beds, may cost anywhere from $8,000 to $10,000.

Figure out what residential tanning bed features you can't live without when trying to get the best price possible for a bed. If you can live with only having a tanning canopy, that might be the best option for you. If you want a standard tanning bed, choose one with the features that match your budget.
