How to Avoid the Dangers of Tanning Beds

Sunlamps and tanning beds are big business because they promise you a bronzed body year-round, but the ultraviolet (UV) radiation you receive from these devices poses serious health risks to your skin.

FDA scientist and international experts on UV radiation, explain why it's important to avoid exposure to UV radiation from devices such as tanning beds, tanning booths, and portable home tanning units – May 24, 2010

You may experience both short and long term effects of UV exposure. 2.3 million teens visit tanning salons in the U.S. every year and risk the dangers of tanning beds. Because the FDA estimates that about 38,000 people will be diagnosed with melanoma this year in the U.S. and 7,300 people will die from this condition, it is important that you know the facts about UV radiation and find a sunless tanning solution near you.
Exposure to UV radiation, whether from the sun or indoor tanning beds, can cause:
  • Skin cancer
  • Skin burns
  • Premature skin aging
  • Eye damage (both short- and long-term)
