TANNING BED

WAIVER AND RELEASE

I agree that I am voluntarily using this tanning bed. I am fully responsible for the amount of time I have chosen for exposure, both in the time per visit and the number of visits for tanning. I agree to use protective eyewear at all times. Before using the tanning bed, I will acquaint myself with the effect of UVA tanning and will obtain my doctor’s permission to tan if I am undergoing any treatment or taking any medication. I agree to hold [Company Name] and all of its employees, owners, directors, and officers harmless and free of any liability from my use of the tanning bed.

HELPFUL HINTS

1. If you burn easily in the sun, you will burn easily while using the tanning bed.

2. If you cannot achieve a tan from the sun, you probably won’t be able to tan by using a [Company Name] tanning bed.

3. If you are taking any restrictive-photosensitive medication or if you are prone to reactions from ultraviolet light, you should not use the tanning bed.

4. Be especially careful of body areas that see little or no sunlight.

5. Take it easy. Do not try to get a great tan in one or two visits. 

6. Monitor your tanning results by using a small sticker to monitor results.

7. Remember, overexposure to sunlight and/or UVA sun lamps can cause permanent damage to your skin and may cause skin cancer.

If you have any questions about the effects of tanning, be sure to consult your doctor.
