The use of Ultraviolet (UV) light curing systems in the nail industry has recently been in the news due a case study reporting that two women from sunny Texas developed skin cancer as a result of having their nail enhancements cured in UV Nail Lamps (MacFarlane and Alonso, 2010). In true fashion, the media jumped all over this report and sensationalized, exaggerated and distorted the study’s inaccurate, unscientific and faulty conclusions. Based on scientific knowledge and further studies conducted on the UV light emissions from UV curing units, these concerns are not justified.

UV light has been used in the nail industry as a means of curing products for almost three decades and millions of women are treated every year with these devices. Over the years several studies have demonstrated that safe levels of UV are being used in UV Nail Lamps. In the USA, the FDA has also set safe exposure limits that should not be exceeded.

The electromagnetic spectrum consists of radio waves, heat radiation/infrared, visible light, UV light and X-ray. There are three types of UV light: UV-A (wavelength – 320-400 nm), UV-B (wavelength – 290-320 nm) and UV-C (which is usually absorbed by the ozone layer). UV-B and UV-C have short, energetic and aggressive waves and exposure to them are known skin cancer risks. Overexposure to UV-B also causes severe sunburn. UV-A, on the other hand, has less energetic and longer wavelengths.

UV-A light cures nail products very effectively since most gels cure well in wavelengths ranging from 340 to 380 nm. UV bulbs used in nail lamps contain a specialized phosphorous coating on the inside of the bulb that filters UV rays of a defined wavelength, resulting in mostly UV-A light being emitted from such a bulb. It is obvious that a UV Nail Lamp is very different from a UV Tanning Bed. Clearly the objective is much different, UV Nail Lamps only need to produce UV-A at a wavelength of 340-380 nm to cure gel, while UV lamps used in tanning beds emit both UV-A and UV-B at wavelengths and intensity that will result in a tan. With tanning beds the exposure is much higher due to greater UV intensity, greater amount of energy being transmitted by bulbs, longer exposure time and closer proximity of the user to the source. Typically, a tanning bed contains 12x100-watt UV bulbs, while a UV nail lamp contain 4x9-watt bulbs or 2x18-watt bulbs. It is important to remember that UV bulb “wattage” is not a measure of UV exposure to the skin, but actually a measure of energy usage. The proper measurement of UV exposure is to determine the mill watts per centimeter squared (mW/cm2), which is a measure of how much UV light falls upon each and every square centimeter of skin.
