Nail Salon Dryers Emit Varying Levels Of Rdiation.

A research letter suggests that “nail salon dryers, which use ultraviolet light to speed the drying and hardening of nail polishes and gels, emit varying levels of radiation that can lead to risky skin damage in as few as eight visits to the manicurist.” Investigators “conducted a random sampling of 17 different UV nail lamps found in salons to determine how much ultraviolet radiation is being emitted when clients dry their nails under the lights.” The researchers “found wide variation in the dose of UVA light emitted during eight minutes of nail drying or hardening.” The investigators “calculated that it could take as few as 24 visits to some salons and as many as 625 to others, to reach the point where the UV light triggers cancer-causing DNA damage.”
