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 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 very energetic radiation which 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.
