Does A UV Lamp For Nail Increase The Skin Risk

Info

UV lamps are not new to the world; for many years, they have been used. Girls love pampering themselves and want to look perfect from head to toe. Every woman cherishes beautiful hands just like dresses. Gel nails come to the rescue and help the women to fulfill their dreams. They are different from regular nail polishes and look quite elegant. A UV lamp for the nail is required to make the gel nail stay longer. But people have many assumptions about the UV lamp. One of the fears that women have is that it can increase skin risk. Whether it's true or not? For such essential information, you need to read the article.

What is a UV Lamp?

A UV lamp looks like a lamp that contains ultraviolet light. The light is invisible to the human eye, and the wavelength is so small that the light is measured in nanometers (nm). UV light is emitted by the sun, and having extra light can lead to tanning. Well, coming to a curing UV lamp helps the gel nails to dry faster and allow the nail paint to stay longer.

Led Lamp Vs. UV Lamp

The major difference between the LED lamp and Ultraviolet Gel Nail Lamp is the radiation emitted by the bulb. Gel nails have a chemical called photoinitiators, which need a direct UV wavelength to cure them effectively. Both the lamps have the same wavelength but LED lamps don't suit everyone's budget. In other words, it is more costly than a UV lamp.

Does UV Lamp Uplift the Chances of Skin Concerns?

As mentioned above, a few women hesitate to use UV lamps as they feel it can lead to skin concerns. Earlier, these light boxes used in the salons have brought some skin concerns. Undoubtedly, UV lamps produce radiation which can cause some skin problems. However, today's UV lamps are made with extra protection that reduces skin risk.

Using it once or twice a month will not create many problems. However, if any feel some sort of irritation, then they may consult the doctor and stop using the lamp. If you are thinking of switching it with an LED lamp, then there is no extra benefit as both emit radiation.

It's recommended to look for the best gel nail lamp that cures the nails fastly. So, that one doesn't need to place the hands in the device for so long. Even one can apply sunscreen for additional protection and prevent radiation from entering the skin.

At Last: How Long it Takes to Cure

Many women have raised this question to learn about the time the UV lamp takes. Perhaps, there are different UV lamps available in the market and will differ in terms of quality. Some may cure in 2 minutes and some within 60 seconds. However, one buys according to their budget, but it's always suggested to opt for the superior quality that cures quickly and works durable. Plus, ensure to use quality gel nails that dry up faster and stay at least 10 to 14 days.
