Converting a Tanning Bed to Red Light Therapy

How long does the conversion process take?

Converting a tanning bed to red light therapy typically takes from 30-60 minutes. The exact duration depends on the complexity of your tanning bed and your familiarity with your bed but the process is simple and normally only involves changing the lamps and starters if you have a 220v bed that uses starters. 

Are there specific tanning bed models suitable for conversion?

Most conventional tanning beds can be converted to accommodate red light therapy. However, it's advisable to check the compatibility of your specific model with our staff at the Sun Tanning Store before proceeding.

Can I revert my tanning bed to its original state after the conversion?

Yes, in most cases, the conversion process is reversible. Ensure you keep all original components (your tanning lamps) to facilitate a smooth reversion if needed.

Is red light therapy safe for all skin types?

Red light therapy is generally considered safe for all skin types. However, individuals with photosensitivity or certain skin conditions should consult a dermatologist before starting the conversion process.

How often should I undergo red light therapy sessions?

The frequency of red light therapy sessions varies, but starting with a few sessions per week is recommended. Normally sessions should be approximately 15 minutes for maximum effect. Consultation with a healthcare professional can provide personalized guidance based on your skin goals.

Can I use red light therapy in combination with other skincare routines?
