A UV lamp is a lamp specifically designed to emit light at the ultraviolet wavelength, which is generally not able to be seen by humans without special equipment. In addition to these entertainment and cosmetic applications, a UV lamp can also be used as a treatment tool for a number of different illnesses.
I have a very old copy of The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, and it suggests that for sore nipples, you should either expose them to sunlight or (I think) use a UV lamp. I’ve never understood people who go to tanning salons to sit under these lamps and get their tans. The researchers also concluded that the risk of developing non-melanoma skin cancer was 11 to 46 times lower than the risks of being exposed to noonday natural sunlight. If consumers are still concerned, the Nail Manufacturer Council on Safety recommends wearing sunscreen or white, fingertip-less gloves.
In terrariums, these lamps are used so that plants and animals, especially reptiles, get enough of the required UV light they may need each day. At amusement parks and other places, an ultraviolet lamp can be used as a black light to create unusual glowing effects. Many tanning beds use such lamps to give artificial tans because UV light is what actually tans the skin in the natural environment.


While most UV light therapeutic tools are considered alternative forms of medicine, the use of an ultraviolet lamp, or lamps, to treat seasonal affective disorder, a mental illness, has been accepted in many mainstream practices. Apparently the UV rays help cracked nipples heal! I doubt you would find a lot of doctors recommending that these days!
Even without knowledge of the science behind it, I’ve always felt that there was something that was inherently dangerous about the whole thing. Customers who are taking medication that requires them to avoid natural sunlight without proper protection should be cautious when using UV nail lamps. For example, it is possible it will also produce visible light, but it can also operate using a black light. These effects can also help reflect very vibrant colors, which have glowing phosphors that often react with invisible UV light. However, the tanning beds can offer UV light at a much higher concentration, thus quickening the time it takes to receive the desired tan level.
The theory behind the treatment for the seasonal disorder is that humans also need a certain amount of UV light and that may not be available in sufficient quantities during the winter months when people tend to spend less time outdoors and the days are shorter. In order to get a tan, and then to maintain it, you have to go anywhere from once a week to a few times a week.


Dowdy and Robert Sayre, co-inventor of the SPF rating system for sunscreens, set out to determine if traditional fluorescent and LED-type nail lamps produce excess amounts of UV and increase the risk of skin cancer. These lamps were found to be significantly less hazardous than expected based on the initial concerns raised by others.
The danger is especially potent for those who use tanning beds, according to the American Medical Association, which states that the beds do increase the risk for cancer. The researchers found that UV exposure is so low that a person could put her hands under a nail lamp for 25 minutes a day without exceeding the internationally accepted safe limits for daily workplace UV exposure. I told her maybe she should just learn to look at the world without ultraviolet light, but she is obsessive compulsive in her cleaning habits, kind of like Felix in the Odd Couple. I think if you need a tan, our sun is a better source of energy for that, but even there you need to be careful and use the right kind of skin protection.
