When you first get your sunlamp, we know how exciting it can be – all you want to do is open it up and start using it. However, there is a very important first step that can not be passed over: Read the instructions! Many people believe that these units are self explanatory because they only have 1 button, but since these are UV lights, it is a lot more complex than you may think.
Each unit comes with it’s own specific instructions for how to get things started. Depending on the model you’ve chosen, there will be different times and distances that must be followed. In the beginning of the instruction booklet, you will learn about the different types of skin and how those differences can effect your usage of the lamp. Not everyone uses these sunlamps the same, so it is important to follow the instructions and ease your way into it.
The absolute most important thing to remember before using your lamp is: PUT ON YOUR PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR!
These lights emit UV rays that could be harmful to the eyes if you are not wearing protection. The goggles that are provided with the unit will give you the UV protection needed to make sure it is safe to use.
Once you have read the instructions all the way through and are wearing your protective eyewear, then you are ready to use your new sunlamp! If you ever have any questions about usage of your lamp, feel free to give us a call at: 800-544-3757
