The sun is free although the skin cancer is not.

Tanning machines have very high concentrations of UVA and UVB rays and are very harmful to the skin. If you must tan, please use spray tanning!

Bronze Body 24 located inside of Ravishing on Main Street has both low pressure and High pressure beds. I used to work their for Misty and she is a doll! 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. The best part is once you get a card you can tan 24/7!

This is not true. Both use UVA rays to tan. Since the 1990s, UVA rays have been known to be a carcinogen. Tanning is like smoking. Feel free to indulge if you want to but don't kid yourself (or mislead others) about the harmful effects.

I'm not a tanning expert, but i'm told the High pressure bed does not use UVA rays and the bulbs are very different than the low pressure beds. I'm not saying there's no potential for skin damage, but none has been found as of yet. For more information ask Misty at Bronze Body. She is the expert with tanning.

I'm certainly not an expert on this sort of thing, but where are you getting your info about high pressure beds? What I can google up on it makes it look like they are actually worse than the other kind.

Tanning Beds Triple Melanoma Risk
Skin Cancer Risk Even Higher for Frequent Users of High-Pressure Tanning Beds


By Salynn Boyles
WebMD Health News Reviewed by Laura J. Martin, MD

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.

Your right Roy, I did not ask what the effects of tanning are. I already know, just wanted to relax a few times in a tanning bed and possible get a manicure.

I've had a malignant melanoma. You do NOT want to get it. It is the type of skin cancer that can metastasize and be fatal. There is NO treatment once it spreads. You can always get a spray tan, you know, if you have to be orange.

I used to tan indoors. Until a friend showed me the scars on her back from the cancerous areas she had removed. It looked like horrible teenage acne. She is lucky to be alive. I will stick with the pale skin and sunscreen from now on! I will admit, I love the feeling of laying in a warm tanning bed, it is sooooo relaxing. Maybe a hot tub would feel as good!
