Tanning Beds/Tanning Booths

Know The Risks UV Radiation Poses While Tanning

Most tanning beds and booths function using ultraviolet (UV) lights. UV radiation is a catalyst for a range of dermatological issues ranging from induced wrinkles to skin cancer. In addition to advice on the dangers of tanning beds, Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center provides remedies for many of the skin conditions UV radiation can cause.

The use of tanning beds, tanning booths, and sunlamps is not recommended by dermatologists. The ultraviolet (UV) radiation from tanning beds, tanning booths, and sunlamps are known carcinogens or cancer-causing substances. The risk of all skin cancers has been proven to increase with exposure to UV radiation during indoor tanning. If indoor tanning is used before age 30, the risk of developing melanoma increases by 75 percent. Tanning beds and tanning booths also cause other forms of skin damage and premature skin aging, including hyper- and hypopigmentation, immune system suppression, cataracts and other eye damage.
