Gel Manis’ – are they safe?

It’s been quoted by Karen Rowan of MyHealthNewsDaily that “Nail salon lamps don’t increase skin cancer risk”

LED Vs UV drying lights:


LED: the Light Emitting Diode. LED is a low energy bulb with the capacity to produce small amounts of light. When tested against the phototherapy lamps in the Markova study, researchers found that a person would need over 40,000 ten minute sessions under an LED nail lamp to sustain the same radiation produced in one phototherapy session. This is the equivalent of getting a gel manicure once a week for over 769 years.

LED lamps cure the gel faster (30 seconds Vs 2 minutes). This ensures that your hands are not subjected to minutes-long exposure under UV.

Here at LHB, we utilise Artistic Pro 30 LED lamps for Gel Mani drying perfection…
