UV Radiation and Skin Damage

 

 

Sun energy waves can be divided according to their physiological affect on the skin as well as the depth of skin penetration.

  • UVAI (340-400nm) can cause tanning but has a minimal erythemal effect. It penetrates deeply and can cause long-term damage.
  • UVAII (320-340nm) has a slight erythemal effect.
  • UVB (290-320nm) causes sunburn and is a major contributor to skin cancer development.
  • UVC (200-290nm) is a very energetic radiation that is absorbed by the ozone layer.

In less scientific words, sun radiation penetrates the skin and causes sunburn, long-term skin damage, and possibly skin cancer.
