Suntan beds are prone to endless controversies due to an alarming growth of skin cancer cases associated with long-term exposure to artificial tanning sources. Even if such devices are quite sophisticated, we simply call them suntan beds or tanning beds. Under this concept, suppliers gather all sorts of solutions. Initially, suntan beds have refashioned all the practices in beauty salons and beauty centers because, soon after beauty parlor’s attendees discovered the tremendous benefits of suntan beds, this intricate machinery functioning on UV ray emission has become a must.
After large-scale release, sutan beds have stood for an ongoing attraction. Statistically speaking, suntan beds have raised substantially the number of clients. This phenomenon can be explained by the revolutionary tanning option suntan beds have brought forth.
First of all, tan was no longer an advantage of the summer season. Imagine the amazing the impression of a perfectly tanned skin during cold season. In addition, the necessary period to get that flawlessly tanned look required no more than 15 sessions. And by tanning session, we mean several minutes.
At the very beginning, clients were not informed properly on the risks coming along with regular exposure to artificially radiated UV rays. Thus, few years were more than enough to realize what is behind the almighty tanning bed. Initially, we were under wrong impression that alarming signals that dermatologists used to send were nothing but overreactions. As for suntan suppliers, they had no interest in confirming the rumors.
Once the dangers of suntan beds have been proved, suppliers have looked for much healthier tanning methods. For instance, new selling lines have been released. The innovation comes from a filtering system, which blocks successfully harmful UV rays. Experts call them UV B, where B is the negative category of Ultra Violet rays. As you can imagine, UV ray, category A is less invasive and does not cause skin burns.
In fact, these rays (either artificially radiated or naturally radiated) affect the melanin, a pigment, which makes your skin look tanned.
Another important stage in suntan beds’ history was the release of home-based solutions. This new device has come as reliable tanning alternative to professional services. Although tanning sessions were very short, customers spend significant time scheduling and going to the tanning center. Moreover, professional assistance was simply formal. It is commonly understood that at home tanning methods ought to be easy portable.
Since storage space is a problem for all dwellings, suntan beds are smaller versions of the robust clamshells we encounter in beauty parlors. Actually, the entire device is wisely minimized to a stand-alone UV lamp (as a canopy) and a folding bed. Pros and cons about home-based suntan beds are related to costs (owners state that a sun tanning canopy is an important investment due to the fact that lamps are pretty expensive) and to time-saving solutions and ergonomics.
All in all, before considering artificial tanning, you should assess first the risks associated with exposure to UV rays.
