Rays Vs. Sprays
Teenagers tempted to head to the tanning salon before prom should think twice: just one indoor tanning session per year in high school or college boosts the risk of developing potentially deadly melanoma by 20 percent, and each additional session during the same year raises this risk almost another two percent. The risk of basal cell carcinoma (BCC), a common nonmelanoma skin cancer, increases by 25 percent after only one to two indoor tanning sessions. The risk soars to 73 percent after six or more sessions.
“A tan, whether you get it on the beach or in a tanning bed, damages your skin,” says Perry Robins, MD, President of The Skin Cancer Foundation. “Despite what you may hear at the tanning salon, a tan doesn't come without consequences: the cumulative damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation can lead to skin cancer, as well as wrinkles, brown spots, and other signs of premature skin aging.”
