Our Services

Welcome to Shades of Sun, providers of professional tanning solutions and red light therapy treatment.

Red Light Therapy

Beautiful Skin With Red Light Collagen Treatment

Our 100% Red Light Collagen Therapy beds help to stimulate collagen production and reduce or delay the visible signs of ageing.

Red Light Therapy works in the same way that photosynthesis works for plants. It is thought that certain wavelengths of light can enhance the functioning of mitochondria, which are the organelles in a cell which take in nutrients and break them down to create energy. By enhancing the cellular respiration, it will improve the functioning of the whole cell.

Our Featured Products

Our range of accelerators and bronzers will help you to naturally and safely bring colour and a radiant glow to your skin. Shades of Sun recommend that you use a tanning cream when using beds and booths (as well as sunbathing outdoors) and an after tanning skin care cream.

An accelerator with no bronzer for a rich and natural tan. Thanks to Aloe, chamomile, and agave extract, your skin will be restored and nourished.

A unique and luxurious lotion that is a mix of a bronzer and accelerator. Based on caviar extract it gives you a deep and intense tan in no time. 

A unique formula combining tanning and anti-ageing ingredients such as collagen, argan oil and silk proteins which protect while leaving the skin firm and rejuvenated.
