Do UV rays used during gel manicures cause damage?

Yes! The nail lamps used during gel manicures use UVA light to cure the polish. UVA rays in combination with Infrared radiation (the heat-emitting rays) penetrate deep into the skin and can accelerate photoaging. Our Handscreen SPF 40 comes in a handy 1 fl. oz. tube perfect for carrying in your purse and applying before using one of these lamps.
