Welcome to JETtan "Just Enough Time Tanning"
Sun Spot Atlantis, a Colorado Springs, Colorado based tanning salon, is celebrating its 20th year in business. We're proud to introduce a new Vitamin D Supplementation Solution called "JETtan", which is an advanced Vitamin D supplementation program where we "Test, Measure, Time, and Tailor" tanning sessions specifically to your individual Vitamin D needs.
With the JETtan solution you'll be able to customize your own weekly "Just Enough Time" tanning sessions so you can capture and synthize enough UV rays from our tanning beds or booths to provide you with a week's worth of healthy, vitally important Vitamin D, in a very short time frame !
What Exactly is a JETtan?
A JETtan is actually NOT a tan at all! It's a brief, measured dose of healthy UV in a tanning bed/booth meant to optimize your body's NATURAL ability to produce Vitamin D but is NOT enough time to start the skin tanning process. Does it work? YES. Here's the proof from PubMed, click .
JETtan Sneak Peak:
At this time we are developing an innovative JETtan Vitamin D Supplementation Solution. This "Sneak Peak" web site is designed to provide you with the basics of our program offering, unique Vitamin D deficiency/sufficiency testing solutions, the use of wearable UV monitoring devices, and our tailored "Just Enough Time" Tanning Programs. If you are an individual who believes your Vitamin D levels are low, or you are a tanning salon interested in learning more about our JETtan program, feel free to send us a 'Contact Us' inquiry and we will follow-up with you.

More Vitamin D Please !
According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, an estimated 85% of the people in the United States aren't getting enough vitamin D for optimum health! This is called 'Vitamin D Deficiency' and many doctors now consider it to be a global epidemic. You may not be getting enough vitamin D if:
- You don’t get enough sunlight.
Your body is usually able to make all the vitamin D it needs if you briefly expose enough bare skin to the sun. That's why Vitamin D is called the 'sunshine vitamin.' However, most people don’t get enough sun exposure because we typically spend most of our day indoors. And when we do go outside, more and more people are instantly lathering on the sunscreen, which inhibits the body's ability to make Vitamin D. It’s also almost impossible for people to get enough vitamin D from the sun during the cold winter months.
- You don’t take supplements.
It’s extremely difficult to get enough vitamin D from the foods you eat alone. Supplements are definitely an option but the FDA's recommendation of 600 IU's a day is considered woefully inadequate by many Vitamin D experts, who recommend at least 5,000 IU's a day. However, many people have difficulty taking Vitamin D oral supplements. Ground up sheep hair (which is how many Vitamin D supplements are produced) just doesn't seem to agree with a lot of stomachs! Your skin on the other hand can manufacture 10,000 - 25,000 IU's of Vitamin D, roughly a whole weeks worth, in just a FEW MINUTES of UV exposure.
- Vitamin D from the sun is a healthy choice.
When we are in the sun, we naturally feel great. That's why we gravitate to the beaches, pools, golf courses, etc. Science shows that we can increase our levels of Vitamin D naturally and most efficiently when we are exposed to the sun (i.e. UV) for brief periods of time. Studies are revealing new evidence that monitored, regular UV exposure has many benefits for our overall health and well-being.
But what if I'm not able to enough spend time outdoors ?
That's where JETtan comes in. We combine the convenience of a weekly tanning salon visit, with a simple at home test kit to periodically check your own Vitamin D levels. We can also equip you with a monitor for UV exposure that protects you from over-exposure to the sun or UV tanning. We determine your skin type in terms of its ability to manufacture Vitamin D and then create a tailored UV exposure program for you to maximize your Vitamin D production. All this while eliminating ANY chance of over-exposure if you follow the protocol.
And Here Is How We Do It:
WE TEST: We encourage you to work with your doctor to have your Vitamin D levels tested, (using many emerging in-office Vitamin D tests, as well as a lab-based testing solutions) to determine your Vitamin D deficiency/sufficiency levels. We are currently evaluating a new, 10 minute "Quick-Vitamin D Testing Solution" that is pending formal FDA approval. Once we have a good idea of where your levels are at... with the JETtan program we can create a customized JETtan program to suit your specific needs. And then you can check back in with your Doctor after a month or so to see how you are doing.
WE MEASURE: Then we equip you with a specialized, patented UV wrist monitor that is the world’s first customizable device for measuring UV exposure. It's called UVA+B SunFriend® and it's scientific features are based on internationally recognized scientific research and NASA inspired sensors. The SunFriend helps protect you from over-exposure by alerting you when you've had your optimal dose of healthy UV for Vitamin D production for your skin type. Sun Spot Atlantis is proud to be the master distributor for UVA+B SunFriend® to the indoor tanning industry, to both supply and educate tanning salons across the country about this unique Vitamin D solution.
WE TIME: Once you know Vitamin D level and skin type, you can put together a unique JETtan program to maximize Vitamin D production using any tanning unit in your salon. We'll show you how to program the UVA+B SunFriend® and how it alerts you when you've reached your healthy UV exposure time for Vitamin D production.
WE TAILOR: Using the JETtan program you can tailor a quick, convenient Vitamin D schedule that will MAXIMIZE healthy Vitamin D production in an absolute MINIMUM amount of UV exposure time. The health benefits of Vitamin D are gaining more and more attention from doctors around the world. It appears that Vitamin D has protective effects and immunomodulatory effects in the brain and is useful in neurodegenerative and neuroimmune diseases.
There are many more benefits of Vitamin D once you get a healthy level of it in your system... For more information on these benefits, click the "Benefits of Vitamin D" menu link above.
What makes Sun Spot's new JETtan Service So Different you Ask... ??
We are re-defining what the "Power of Tanning" can do for your health through our unique JETtan Vitamin D Supplementation Solution. It's primary focus is on Vitamin D production through monitored UV exposure. The positive health consequences for the population, especially the elderly who get progressively more inefficient at producing Vitamin D as they age, are profound.
We have developed a step by step, controlled and measured program where we put you in charge with in-depth knowledge about Vitamin D production and health, as well as providing you with the tools to monitor and manage the process.
For more details on our program, and to be included on our mailing list, please feel free to send us a Contact Inquiry and one of our Sun Spot Representatives will follow-up with you to address your needs.
FTC Settlement Notice:
Most people are not aware that back in 2010 the Indoor Tanning Industry (ITA) settled a dispute with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over misleading ads and statements being made regarding the health benefits of Indoor Tanning.
As a result a settlement was reached between the FTC and the ITA ads that claim exposure to ultraviolet radiation produces vitamin D in the body, or make other claims about the effectiveness or usefulness of indoor tanning products or services for the body’s generation of vitamin D, must clearly and prominently make this disclosure:
“NOTICE: You do not need to become tan for your skin to make vitamin D. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation may increase the likelihood of developing skin cancer and can cause serious eye injury.”
