halogen lamp

Just wondering if these magnifier lamps/halogen used in spa salons to do facials, if they emit UV radiation because what is the point of going for a facial if you’re getting radiation there?? The lady put “tanning” goggles on me, but still I am just curious. Thanks

its just keyword spamming.
thats a common workbench magnifier lamp.
its a common circline fluorescent.
whats a facial?
folks pay to get face damage from uv?
to think that i was giving facials for free when i was in my teens/20’s.
but it was impact damage rather than uv!

well she told me halogen, but either way, it’s not a good/healthy situation then, right? I wonder if there are other people who can do facials with an alternative lighting that can be close, but not dangerous.

First, welcome to the Forum.

Second, we don’t really do “seriousness” around here. It leads to too many problems. Seriously.

Thirdly, you got your answer. Let me rehash: The beautician is not correct. It’s not halogen, it’s fluorescent light. S/he probably put the goggles on you so you’d stop squinting.

Lastly, everything is dangerous, c’est la vie. You should probably be more terrified of the people who try to scare you, than of whatever it is (e.g. “UV”) that they’re trying to make you scared of. If that makes any sense… It’s wise of you to seek expert advice, so let me offer what works for me, what has worked for most humans for a couple million years: Wash your face, stop polluting it with stuff you need a Licensed Beautician to peel off, go outside and let the sun and wind and rain make you beautiful. Your beautician won’t like it, but your face will. Your choice. Serious enough?

Enjoy your visit.

The light source itself could be anything: halogen, incandescent, etc.
It enables the beautician ( Big SmileBig SmileBig SmileFacepalm ) to take a better look at your pores. That’s all.
The hocus-pocus surrounding it sees to it that she makes more money than me!
