Question: Do UV Nail lamps cause cancer? Are UV nail lamps Safe?
Answer: UV Nail lamps emit similar UVA rays as the sun. It is unlikely that moderate use should pose any long term health risks. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, "even the mostintense [UV lamps] presents only a moderate risk." (The Skin Cancer Foundation's Official Position on UV Light and Manicure Safety) It is always wise to be safe, however, and the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen on your skin when using the device. You may also wear gloves specifically desgined for use during gel-based manicures like these Salon Edge UV Protective Gloves.
