In this post I am trying to put together all articles from other sources regarding the safety of doing gel manicures with uv lamp. Will be updated whenever needed.
- LED Light Versus UV Lamp from the article “The Science of Gels”, posted on Nails Magazine website. Nice article to know deeper the science behind uv gel polish and LED/UV Lamps
- “Gel manicures raise questions about safety of the UV lamps used to dry the polish” from Washington Post. You can apply sunblock before doing the manicure but it’s rarely done by clients.
- “Do UV Nail Lamps Emit Unsafe Levels of Ultraviolet Light?”, a report from a study conducted to test some UV Lamps to see if UV Lamp is safe. The result shows UV nail lamps emit relatively low levels of UV light and these exposure levels are considered well within safe levels when they are used to perform UV artificial nail services in nail salons
