What is the difference between high pressure and low pressure? Low-pressure beds are characterized by having higher levels of UVB whereas high-pressure beds have increased levels of UVA and lower levels of UVB. Higher levels of UVA allow the tan to last longer and reduce the risk of UVB burning. Natural sunlight varies during the day from low UVB in the early morning to high UVB in the mid day sun. Low pressure tanning has the sunburn potential of the midday sun and the sun tanning potential of the early morning sun. High pressure offers the tanning potential of the mid-day sun and the burning potential of the early morning sun. How do Tanning Beds Work? Tanning beds are designed to mimic the sun.  The sun emits three kinds  of UV rays that make you tan, UV-C, UV-A and UV-B.  Today's sophisticated tanning lamps filter out the UV-C rays as these short waves are harmful to your skin.  UV-B, the middle length waves, begins the tanning process, by stimulating the melanocyte cells that produce melanin.  Melanin will be bronzed by the longest wave length, UV-A.  The UV-A oxidizes the melanin and produces the tan.  Our advanced tanning lamps use the best ratio of UV-B and UV-A light to provide the greatest tanning results, with a lowered risk of overexposure.
