Let's discuss tanning beds in more detail; we have our Silver (regular), Gold (medium), and Platinum (super) lay-downs that are different strengths. We also have stand-up booths in Gold and Platinum. The first choice you need to make is whether you would like to lay down or stand up. See below for more details and photos of all our beds here at Oceanside.
Lay Down Tanning Bed
Benefit of lay down beds; if you feel like relaxing, as if you are on the beach then this would be the best option for you. Sometimes people believe lay down beds can cause an uneven tan, but this is just a myth. With bulbs surrounding you at every angle, you are sure to leave with a beautiful, even, glowing tan. Oceanside Tanning also has all beds equipped with amazing facials that will help increase your tan. All beds are different so come on in and have one of our friendly staff members give you a tour and explain the benefits of our lay-downs.
Stand Up Tanning Bed
The benefit of the stand up booths is you get a more even tan around your whole body since your skin is not pressed against the acrylic. You will get a nice even tan all around as you would in any bed but you will not need to move around. This is also a great option for clients who get a little claustrophobic in the lay down beds.
The downside of the stand up tan is you need to, well, stand up.
The next choice is the power of your bed...
There are a few options at Oceanside Tanning for our beds. We have our SILVER Beds which are our Regular Powered - both run for a max of 20 Minutes. Then there is our GOLD Beds which are our Medium Powered; one is a laydown for a max of 15 Minutes and the other is a 12 Minute Stand Up. Our PLATINUM Beds are considered our Powerful Super/Turbo Beds. There are two Lay-downs for a maximum of 12 minutes and a Stand Up for 10 Minutes maximum. Please have our Staff members refer you to the bed that best suits your skin.
