Are “Safe” Tanning Beds Really Safe? By Lavish Skin – Call Us On 03 5762 8404
We’d love to tell you that tanning beds are safe. Unfortunately, most of what you see hear about these beds is just marketing hype. In actuality, tanning beds are more dangerous than the sun!
With natural sunlight, you have a combination of UVA and UVB rays. The UVB rays cause your skin to burn. That’s when you make the wise decision to head indoors. With so-called safe tanning beds, you don’t usually burn because your skin is flooded with UVA rays alone.
These rays stimulate your skin to produce a tan, but they usually do not cause the skin to burn. And that’s the problem. These UVA rays penetrate the skin even deeper than UVA rays.
You may not be aware of the damage until years later when brown spots, pre-cancers, and blotchy skin show up. Remember, the only safe tanning is the one you spray on!
