Gel Manicure UV Drying lamp Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating the use of UV drying lamps for gel manicures. UV drying lamps are used in manicures to harden gel polish, which lasts longer than traditional nail polish. A team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego exposed mice and human cells to this lamp in their lab for multiple 20-minute sessions and saw both cell death and DNA damage. The results of this study strongly suggest that the radiation emitted by the UV lamps could cause cancers of the hand and may increase the risk of early skin cancers.  Migliaccio & Rathod LLP wants to hold manufacturers responsible for the potential risk to consumers.
