Tech Talk n°5 Do LED lamps emit UV?

What's the difference between LED and UV lamps?

The big difference between LED and UV lamps is the shape of the light spectrum emitted by these lamps.  The light spectrum of LED lamps is narrower which means the light falls in a specific place so the correct finger positioning inside the lamp is crucial. These positions are clearly indicated on the bottom plate of the lamp and can be felt when entering the lamp. UV light is more scattered so there the position of the hand is less important.

ProNails Product Development Director Birgit explains in this Tech Talk why the position of the hand is therefore more important under a LED than under a UV-lamp AND why it’s faster & smarter to use a LED lamp!

The importance of the finger positioning for a fully cured gel

The ProNails Smart Light LED Lamp emits light waves which match the photo initiators, monomers, oligomers and other ingredients in the formula to ensure a perfect cure in the shortest possible time.  It’s safe, it’s fast, it’s smart and it’s the only responsible way to cure your ProNails gels. This all in a superfast way while controlling the heat sensation for your clients! 

The big difference between LED and UV lamps is the different light spectrum which each lamp emits. The light Spectrum of LED lamps is narrower, so more focused in a specific position, while it’s also more powerful when compared to the light spectrum of UV lamps. UV lamps emit a broader light spectrum of a lower intensity so the light is more scattered.

For your clients, it’s very important to position their fingers correctly in The Smart Light - on the finger positions indicated on the bottom plate - in order to catch the light properly. This perfect position of the hand is the only guarantee for a fully cured gel!

Te curing process under this LED lamp is much faster than for instance UV lamps, and requires no more than 30 seconds! As the light spectrum emitted by UV lamps is wider, the position of the hand inside the lamp is less crucial (because the light falls wider). But because the power of the light emitted by a UV lamp is lower, the curing process with a UV lamp takes longer and is generally 120 seconds. Thus, with a UV lamp, you work much longer on each nail service just because of the longer curing time of each layer! 

Good to know! You can cure nails in 30 seconds under a LED lamp, like the Smart Light LED lamp. Under the UV lamp it takes you about 120 seconds, which is 4 times longer! What a difference!   We only offer lamps that make your work faster, smarter and more efficient! ProNails has phased out UV lamps due to their longer curing times.

So make sure to use the ProNails Smart Light, when you want to speed up your tempo! The Smart Light is designed for speed, especially when using the B System

What about curing toe nails?

The base plate of The Smart Light was designed with nail treatments in mind, as they are the most commonly done. But you can perfectly place the 5 toes at the level of the recesses of the 3 middle fingers during a pedicure. Then there will also be optimal curing of gels on the toenails.

 

Use the smart light LED lamp to cure safe and faster!

When it comes to curing nail gels, it’s very important to use a lamp that is compatible to the products you use. So make sure to stick to the same brand

The ProNails Smart Light LED lamp emits specific light waves which match the photoinitiators, monomers, oligomers and other ingredients in the formula, ensuring a perfect and swift curing. This lamp is safe, fast, and intelligent, providing efficient curing while controlling heat sensation for clients.

Are curing lamps safe?

Assurances about the safety of curing lamps are given, with a comparison indicating that walking outside exposes clients to more UV radiation than a nail service does.

Highlighting the speed and efficiency of the B-System, it breaks records with a 30-second soft curing mode in the ProNails Smart Light LED Lamp. ProNails only offers lamps designed for speed, intelligence, and efficiency, making work faster and smarter.

Using the ProNails Smart Light, especially with the B-System, ensures optimal performance without compromising on safety or efficiency.
