How Does Tanning Work

Tanning beds use UV or Ultraviolet light to tan your body. Since there are three types of UV light – UVA, UVB, and UVC – tanning beds are designed to use more levels of UVA with lower levels of UVB on your skin to promote the production of melanin, the pigment that makes you look tan even if you don’t spend time under actual sunlight. The most harmful form of UV light is the UVC which tanning beds filter out so that you only get the best forms of UV light.
