Is high pressure tanning safer than normal?

BAN TANNING: Indoor tanning is dangerous due to the abundant exposure of ultraviolet radiation. Studies have shown increased risk of skin cancer and premature aging of the skin associated with tanning salons. Sunless tanning sprays are much safer.

No: Tanning is not safe and is not recommended for anyone. It increases the risk of skin cancer and accelerates facial and body aging. Sunscreen with titanium and zinc can help protect you from uva and uvb rays, but avoiding sun exposure is best. Spray tanning and tanning lotions are a reasonable alternative to achieve a bronzed look, but they may not be safe for pregnant/ lactating women.
