This is kinda scary. How often do you go to get your nails done?

Doctors are warning people that the UVA light that cures gel manicures has been the source of a few cases of melanoma. There is this hand shield you can get called a YouVeeShield that you can get.

In a different report published, from a completely different sourcefrom the American Academy of Dermatology:

UV exposure during gel manicures should be a concern for everyone, but especially for people who are highly sensitive to UV light. Chris G. Adigun, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist who specializes in nail disorders, says that although the UVA rays don’t burn the skin like UVB rays, they do penetrate the skin to damage DNA and collagen, which can lead to premature aging and may increase skin cancer risk", according to ABC.
