UV gel curing lamps are widely used in the beauty industry. While these types of gel manicures are known for being more convenient and longer lasting, most consumers remain unaware of the risks associated with prolonged exposure to direct ultraviolet (UV) light on the hands.
UV light is a form of radiation emitted from the sun and other artificial sources. While it has many benefits, such as aiding in vitamin D production and helping to treat certain skin conditions, it can also be potentially dangerous if not used with precaution.
If proper safety measures are not taken when exposed to UV light, cell mutations may occur on and underneath the skin, paving the way for cancerous lesions to develop on our fingernails, fingers, and hands.
At Pogust Goodhead, we are filing lawsuits on behalf of individuals that have developed cancerous lesions and other injuries after repeated use of UV gel treatment.
