ASure can! But it’s not the machines and lamps themselves that are causing the cancers so much as how you’re exposing yourself to these UV rays and how frequently you’re doing it. Go to ”Wikipedia”, under UV Light and Cancer and read about the Beneficial Effects of how you get melanin and Vitamin D when you expose yourself to UVA and UVB. Go to www.tanningcoldlake.com and get educated about indoor tanning and UV light exposures at Tanup before you expose your body to an indoor tanning lamp.
AIn ”Wikipedia” under UV Light and Cancer scroll down to Human Health related effects of UV radiation. From as little as days to months and years of frequent OVER exposures can cause often fatal UVA melanomas and UVB squamous cell cancers including direct DNA damage.
Learn before you burn at Tanup. Take the tanning survey. Results will be sent to the provincial and federal government regulating tanning.
AYes, actually. Clients tanning with just moisturizers experience relief from eczema and other dry skin conditions by exposing their skin to the UV rays produced from our standup tanning booths with minimal exposures a few times a week or less. Even Hospitals put premature babies under UV lights in incubators for the health and developmental benefits. Everybody needs sunlight. Where do YOU keep your houseplants?

ANO! In “Wikipedia” under “Human Health effects of UV radiation” sub-heading Aesthetics, it's related how a lack of UVB radiation leads to Vitamin D deficiency, while too much UVB radiation can lead to DNA damage, sunburn and skin cancers. Sensibly tanning every other day is recognized and repaired by the body by increasing melanin and Vitamin D production causing less harmful, healthy, longer lasting tans.

AYes, but it’s the UV rays that trigger the melanin and Vitamin D production and not how long you are exposed to the lamps. In ”Wikipedia” under UV Light and Cancer, benefits of Vitamin D reads “UVB exposure induces the production of Vitamin D in the skin at a rate of up to 1,000 IU’s per minute” creating calcium metabolism vital for nervous system function, bone growth and density, immunity and blood pressure” among others.
ANot really as chemicals in some lotions and dyes in the bronzers prohibit UV ray penetration of the skin causing lack of melanin and Vitamin D production. Both rays need to be able to enter the skin at the same time to produce a pigment tan a skin layer deep, won’t wash off. Know how I* know? If you put a bronzer on at home instead of tanning, your skin turns darker as the day goes by, it’s a liquid dye that lasts a few days and wears off and you’re still the same color you were when you started. A Real Tan lasts for weeks and months! I*: Note reference to King of Queens episode where Lou Ferigno uses Carrie to put a bronzer on his skin while in her livingroom - not at a tanning salon or before going tanning but for color instantly before a body building competition. It's a dye, get it?
AIf using bronzers to get a “darker tan”, we advise you not to use them before you tan as it is a liquid dye and our fear is that you will block UV rays from entering the skin causing a dangerous UVB over-exposure which could lead to cancer someday. Frequent over-exposures using indoor lotions are being considered a possible cause of melanomas and mastectomies among the tanning public more concerned with beauty than body. Moisturizers are all you need to make melanin and Vitamin D internally at Tanup.
ADefinitely NOT. A better idea would be to lower your exposure time and frequency so that you do not experience so much heat from tanning, as it's the rays you want. If information from American Journal of Medicine as it is used in Wikipedia is right, then Vitamin D produced from low exposures to UV rays causes a boost to the immune system, calcium and bone growth in both mother and developing baby, while suddenly stopping could cause a “D” deficiency in a few months. In winter months, only your face is making Vitamin D for your whole body. Get Sensible Simulated Sunlight Sessions at Tanup. Make real Vitamin D internally, baby!
ADefinitely. After years of OVER exposures, fair skinned children burn frequently and can eventually turn brown with pigment protection or become cancerous instead. If we weren't supposed to be exposed to sunlight for growth and development why are we able to make vitamin d internally, NATURALLY? Kinda like we were supposed to, ya think? Parents Smart Tanning children opt for minimal UV ray exposures, skipping every other day for a two week period, building a base brown color without burning using only a moisturizer, or spend the whole vacation indoors with burnt kids. Reality Check.
AStarting with minimal exposures, skip every other day over two or three weeks, building to a base brown color. It’s frequency of sessions and not minutes that causes cells to divide under the skin from the UV ray exposure, making melanin pigment and Vitamin D internally. Once brown, sessions drop to once or twice weekly in winter months and less that in summer. If we had fur, none of this would be going on. Get Seven Sensible Sunlight Sessions at Tanup!
APlay outside all day in the sun as a kid? If UV rays are blocked then it follows that no protective melanin and Vitamin D production is taking place as would have happened with sensible sunlight exposures. No benefit for nervous system, calcium, bones or immunity. Instead you’d believe that staying indoors, doing Vitamin D drops, sunscreening like vampires before leaving the house is the answer? SPF was intended for EXTENDED sunlight exposures - Not EVERY sunlight exposure.
ASome scientists blame the absence of UVA filters in sunscreens for the higher risk of melanomas in sunscreen users. As a defense against UV radiation, the amount of protective brown melanin in the skin increases when exposed to moderate levels of sunshine – commonly known as a tan. The photochemical properties of melanin make it an excellent photoprotectant, surpassing sunscreens in UV radiation heat distribution efficiency. Meaning "we can so we do because we're supposed to."
