October 12, 2007, Newsletter Issue #110: How do Tanning Beds Work?

Tip of the Week

Tanning beds emit UV rays, much like the sun does. Tanning beds use tanning lamps that emit these rays only UV-A or UV-B rays though. The other kind, UV-C, is more harmful to your skin. As you begin your tanning sessions at a tanning salon, you'll sit under tanning beds under the guide of a tanning professional. The lamps will stimulate melanin in your skin and as part of a reaction to protect your body from further sun; your skin will turn a darker.

The tanning bed lamps use a more UV ray but don't assume it is so safe to use you can stay inside the tanning bed for too long. UV-A rays can still cause sunburns or much worse.
