Nail Salon LED Lamps May Be Safer for Skin
A recent news clip on NBC’s Today Show reported that a new study shows that UV lamps in nail salons may increase cancer risks. These dryers emit UVA light to cure or harden gel “polishes” in a fraction of the time it takes to dry regular polish.
Dr. Lyndsay Shipp, who lead the study said: “Even with numerous exposures, the risk for carcinogenesis remains small.”
Even so, Shizuka new york Day Spa’s owner, Shizuka Bernstein, wanted to avoid this risk altogether and opted instead for a LED-based gel manicure and pedicure system for her New York City nail salon.
“Our LED system uses LED lamps instead of UV lamps to cure gel nails. Our clients like our LED gel nails because it takes even less time to cure nails than UV gels (30 seconds versus 2 minutes) and feels safer,” says Ms. Bernstein.
