A new study confirms that those lamps used to dry your nails after a manicure don't cause skin cancer.
There has been concern that artificial UV lamps used at nail salons were linked to a risk of keratinocyte carcinoma, the most common cancer in the U.S.

They determined it would take 250 years of weekly UV lamp sessions to significantly raise the risk of cancer.
