With all this rain I need some artifical sun..... I'm looking for a new nail tech and a place to tan in Miles City. Any suggestion?
The low pressure beds provide the Vitamin D similar to sulight but do have the potential for skin cancer. The high pressure bed tans you deeper and does not use the bulbs that have the harmful cancer causing rays.
Tanning Beds Triple Melanoma Risk
Skin Cancer Risk Even Higher for Frequent Users of High-Pressure Tanning Beds

May 27, 2010 -- Regular use of tanning beds triples or even quadruples the risk of developing melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, new research finds.
The study is the largest of its kind to examine whether indoor tanning causes skin cancer, and it comes as federal regulators are considering new rules designed to limit the use of commercial tanning by teens.
Compared to people who had never used a tanning bed, indoor tanners had a 74% increased risk for melanoma.
People who spent more than 50 hours tanning indoors had a threefold increase in risk, compared to people who never used a tanning bed, after adjusting for known risk factors for the deadly skin cancer.
The risk was four times higher among frequent users of high-pressure tanning beds, which emit mostly UVA radiation.
Researcher DeAnn Lazovich, PhD, of the University of Minnesota says the study was designed to address the limitations of past research, which have allowed the tanning industry to continue to deny that indoor tanning causes skin cancer.
"Our data would suggest that there is no safe tanning device," she tells WebMD.
