Can Gel Manicures Cause Cancer?

A health expert explains the long term effects of the exposure to ultra violet lights while getting gel manicures.

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[BLANK_AUDIO] I love getting gel manicures. But I heard that the UV lights cause cancer. Is that true? Okay, Dr. Hunt. So UV light has radiation in it, so there's different types of UV light, so A and B. And most of those nail dryers are UV-A lights, and so So we know that it can cause wrinkling of your skin and then also it can cause skin cancer for prolonged exposure. So if you're doing it every once in a while it wouldn't be a big deal, but if you were doing it for long periods of time consistently for years and years and years, you could run the risk of having cancer. And then also it can make your hands look like mine. [BLANK_AUDIO]
