It also has the fewest negative long-term risks compared to other UV tanning devices with respect to aging or skin cancer. The treatment uses short tubes with a photoluminescence layer, which emit the desired wavelength.

During the treatment it is necessary to use special protective glasses. Any skin spots are covered with a zinc paste.
