Re: Acne

You guys are really scaring the **** out of me. If you think that the dermatologists and the media are bad on us now, just start recommending your services as treatment for a medical condition.

If your friend has acne, he can try a lot of home cure remedies. If he decides to try tanning to clear up his acne and it works--great. But if he does this because you are diagnosing his problem and recommending how he treats it, you are really opening yourself up to serious problems.

EXACTLY. They suck cause they don't really diagnose your problem. Just give you crap that ruins your skin.

I don't know what the **** is wrong with everyone's brains in here but please pull said head out off the mud and turn that brain back on. This is just crazy talk. Home remedies? Like what? Going in the SUN???

THE REASON tanning works is cause it dries out the skin but NOT OVER DRYING like the BS derms sell ya. They sell you crap that causes your skin to produce oil in OVERTIME cause the product is CONSTANTLY drying the skin to the point of extreme dryness. The body will naturally try to counter this with it's own oil production...therefore over producing and causing the breakouts to be WORSE.

I wouldn't use anything on the skin just cause it can cause additional breakouts.

Tanning can CAUSE breakouts when you subject the skin to nasty tanning lotions and humid/sweaty conditions...especially backne.

Re: Acne

FDA Consumer; 12/1/1986; Farley, Dixie


Tanning Salon Sees the Light
Sauntering into the Midnight Sun tanning salon in New York City, the man says he'll take his tan straight: no goggles.
No problem. Although goggles are available, says the clerk, it's OK to just close your eyes while using this salon's tanning units.
The "customer" disagrees, now identifying himself as an FDA investigator, New York district office.
But the clerk still insists that goggles are unnecessary.
That incident of Jan. 22, 1986, was one of several observations that ultimately led U.S. marshals to remove, at FDA's request, four facial suntan units from two Manhattan tanning salons owned by Solarium Resorts, Inc., doing business as Midnight Sun. FDA had requested the seizures because it found the units to be a health hazard and, therefore, illegal.
Some people may think that sunlamps emitting ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation--rather than ultraviolet B (UVB), produced by conventional sunlamps--are completely safe. It's true that UVA is less likely than UVB to burn the skin--provided the lamps are used as directed. But UVA radiation penetrates more deeply and, in fact, may increase the risk of other hazards, such as blood vessel damage, skin cancer, and premature skin aging. Further, unless the eyes are properly shielded with goggles, exposure to radiation from any sunlamp can burn the eyes, irritate the corneas, and increase the risk of cataracts. For this reason, FDA requires that tanning salons, regardless of the type of sunlamps they use, provide customers with special goggles.
The New York FDA investigator's visit to the tanning salon was prompted by conversations with a local newspaper reporter who was researching an article about a lack of safety in tanning salons and specifically mentioned Midnight Sun.
FDA's inspection revealed several violations of agency regulations. The facial units lacked adequate directions for use, including required warning statements. Some units lacked goggles, and spare goggles weren't available. What's more, the facial units were wired to bypass automatic timers, so that salon operators could manually control exposure time through switches at the front desk. An FDA performance standard requires that the user be able to control the unit and that each unit be equipped with a working timer. There were similar problems at the other Midnight Sun salon.
Despite telephone calls from FDA to the firm's president regarding the violations, no correections were made. The company also failed to respond to a letter from FDA notifying them of the violations.
There were no reports of injuries but, in view of the serious nature of the problem, FDA's New York district office recommended that the tanning units be seized. On April 29, 1986, the U.S. attorney filed a Complaint for Forfeiture in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The four machines, valued collectively at $12,000, were removed on May 16. They were returned to Solarium after the firm, under FDA's supervision, corrected the problems. The firm also paid the costs incurred by FDA, as ordered by the court.
For more information about tanning units, see FDA Consumer: "A Careful Look into Tanning Booths," October 1980, and "Tanning Beds Are Not Without Drawbacks," December 1983-January 1984.

November 2005

Fighting the Winter Blues
Although some still consider phototherapy an investigatorial treatment, evidence that it may safely help seasonal affective disorder is mounting.
By John D. Zoidis, MD



The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers light boxes Class III medical devices—the most stringent regulatory category for devices. Therefore, the FDA has not given final approval for manufacturers to market light boxes for the treatment of SAD. In 1993, the FDA entered into a “consent decree” that permits light box manufacturers to market light boxes in the United States provided that no significant therapeutic claims are made (ie, “light boxes are curative”). According to the FDA, as long as no therapeutic claims are being made by light box manufacturers, they are considered an “alternative medicine” and, therefore, may be dispensed in the United States without a prescription. Since 1997, the FDA has issued at least one warning letter to remove therapeutic claims from labeling. In 1998, the FDA convened a small, “informal” group to discuss health care policy. During this meeting, it was determined that light boxes, and their relationship to SAD, did not pose a “significant danger” to the public. In addition, the FDA is “not aware of any adverse events as a result of light box therapy.”

I could give many more examples, but my point is that we do not want to make any "therapeutic claims" regarding tanning. Once you step out of the world of simple making someone look better and feel better about themselves and move over to treating medical conditions the government gets knee deep into your business and takes all of the fun out of everything.

Re: Acne

1986 can we talk about outdated? hah seriously... no one on here would ever say it was ok to not wear eyewear... geez... i don't think anyone on this thread was claiming to a client that tanning gaurantees you will correct your acne... but that was just my interpretation of it

Re: Acne

Bill great post.

Tasha, As for being outdated, the FDA doesn’t see it that way. Any time a salon offers advice on how to treat a medical condition with a tanning bed would be considered practicing medicine with out a license.

As for a home remedy for acne, I would use for myself.. 1Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar, 5 drops of pure tea tree oil and apply to the area in need with a cotton ball.

Re: Acne

Kay you have tried this? Does it work? How often should you do this? Is this something that can be done on a daily basis?
