What is collatan?

Simple explanation: it is the best of both worlds. It is a new technology that combines UV and Collagen light. Within the UV spectrum, special attention is paid to UVB light, as it optimises the natural production of vitamin D. The red light also ensures good circulation in the skin, giving the skin a beautiful and natural tan

So by combining both lamps, one obtains a tan on the skin, and the production of vitamin D, collagen, and elastin in 1 lamp. 

Collatan Therapy does not only give your skin a beautiful glow, it also assists with:

 Skin rejuvenation

Boosting collagen-synthesis improves your skin’s appearance, combating the loss of elasticity to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

Lowers inflammation

The increased blood flow derived from red light exposure also alleviates both acute and chronic inflammation. This increase in blood supply into the damaged cells increases the body’s antioxidant defences too, producing a natural anti-inflammatory effect.

Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles

A lack of collagen contributes to thinning of the skin, a loss of elasticity and sagging. Collagen light therapy works to combat these classic problems, too.

Subjects treated with red light showed significantly improved skin condition including reduction of wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of ageing.

Maximising the suns benefits while minimising risk

Compared to outdoor tanning, indoor tanning techniques are much faster and require less time for your body to be exposed to UV rays.

Improved appearance and mood

Exposure to sunlight has been linked to improved energy and elevated mood. The belief that people look better with a tan may partially explain this phenomenon. A report on the tanning attitudes of young adults found that 81% of individuals in 2007 felt that a tan improved appearance, whereas only 58% of individuals in 1968 held the same belief.

Increased levels of Nitric Oxide

Nitric oxide is produced by nearly every type of cell in the human body and is one of the most important molecules for blood vessel health.

It’s a vasodilator, meaning it relaxes the inner muscles of your blood vessels, causing the vessels to widen. In this way, nitric oxide increases blood flow and lowers blood pressure and helps increase the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to working muscles during exercise, thus enhancing exercise performance.

How does it work?

SIMPLE… By combining both spectrums of light the lamps double the function and therefore benefits.
By combining both light spectrums we can achieve a better tan & improve skin oxygen. Only certain wave lengths of light are able to penetrate the skin layers in order to increase the transport of oxygen in the skin and intensify the tanning process. The combination supports collagen and elastin production while increasing hydration of the skin and also counteracts the effect of free radicals.

Who can be treated?

Men & Women over the age of 16 years old. 

    Will I get burnt? Or can it cause sun damage?

    No, definitely not! As red light and collagen therapies do not emit harmful UV radiation, sessions can be longer than standard tanning sessions, usually lasting up to 20 minutes. These extended sessions mean that the comfort of the user is very important.

    How long is the treatment?

    Each session is around 20 minutes. 10 minutes on each side. 

    When will I see results?

    Generally, it takes about 24 to 48 hours for your sunbed tan to fully develop. You will see best results after 3 sessions. 

    How many treatments will I need?

    The number of sessions depends on a patient’s age and skin condition. While you will see immediate results in the first session, it maybe necessary to have between 3 and 12 sessions for optimum results. Patients who go through a series of treatments will see an improvement each time the treatment is performed.

    How do I prepare for my Collatan session?

    You’ll want to shower, shave and exfoliate at least a day before your tan (preferably two!).

    What to do after a Collatan Session?

    Don’t Shower for at least 6 hours after your tanning session. Apply a tan extending lotion immediately after your tanning session to lock in and extend the life of your tan. Moisturize Daily: Moisturizing your skin before, during & after is the key to obtaining the perfect glowing tan.
