How to Best Use Tanning Bed Lamps
Posted by on
There are many different models of tanning bed lamps used in tanning equipment that give off different amounts of both types of ultraviolet radiation at various intensities. How much time you should be exposed to such lamps can vary depending on the type of ultraviolet emission and its strength. At Future Industries, we carry our private labelled lamps AUVL as well as popular lamps such as Cosmedico, enabling our customers to select the brand that is best suited to their needs.
Benefits of Indoor Tanning
The tanning industry strives to point out benefits related to the use of tanning bed lamps. Ultraviolet radiation has been used in treating skin conditions like psoriasis, jaundice, rickets and even in killing germs. However, the advice of a doctor should be sought before using indoor tanning to treat these conditions.
Indoor tanning can also provide greater control over exposure to ultraviolet radiation over exposure in the outdoors, as a tanning bed offers an environment that delivers predictable, consistent exposure. At Future Industries, we offer training classes to our customers on the use of these tanning beds and alternatives such as sunless spray tanning.
Factors and Tips to Consider with Tanning Bed Lamps
Before and when using tanning beds and tanning bed lamps, there are several factors to consider. People with a history of sunburn or fair skin and those using certain medications may be more sensitive to the lamps.
For those who decide to use tanning equipment, there are steps to follow that can make using this equipment less harmless. At a tanning salon, speaking with the salon operator about one skin's sensitivity and how quickly the skin tans can help the operator recommend the amount of time for a tanning session and the frequency of tanning.
Protective eyewear should be worn for the given type of lamp and there should be a physical barrier such as a clean sheet of acrylic shielding the body from the lamp to prevent any potential heat burns. Keep to the recommended time for the session and allow at least 48 hours between sessions.
At Future Industries, we make sure your tanning beds are always in the best condition by offering relamping services and tanning bed repair.
