Unfortunately, without confirming this information new owners sometimes purchase incorrect lamps and are forced to return the product at their own expense. This can be prevented by looking at the label, so please review the section carefully and feel free to contact us should you have questions or if we can be of assistance.
As you can see there are numerous lamps to choose from. The amounts of UVA and UVB a particular lamps contains determines the type of tan you will get. You need both UVA and UVB to get tan, the UVB stimulates the melanocytes in you skin to produce melanin. Once the melanin comes to the surface the UVA oxidizes it making you look brown. Keep in mind UVB is a short wave length and attacks the surface of your skin. In other words when you get sunburned it is an over exposure to
Having said that, when someone uses the term STRONG or HOT lamp, that lamp contains more UVB and will have a tendency to make you red.
Most beds come standard with 5.0% UVB which is the best of both worlds and typically comes with an 18 – 20 minute exposure time.
If you are an individual that does not mind a 30 minute tanning session then you can develop a deep dark tan and can achieve it in a much gentler process by using a 2.6% UVB lamp. Your tan will take longer to develop but the end result will be much more appealing.
Some tanners want immediate results whereby wanting UVB as high as 7.5% to 9.5%, these are not recommended and you can be easily burned if you are not careful. Keep in mind, the more UVB the faster you will get results but not as deep a tan. The more UVA the deeper darker the tan but it will take longer to develop.
For those that have special needs or difficulty tanning your face or legs you have the option of the Dual Sun lamp that has an increased amount of UVB in those areas. These lamps are direct replacements for the standard F71 or F73.
