Derma Scan / Derma View screening safety

Question: This machine shows cumulative invisible sun damage by using a mirror, black light and a viewing box. As a health educator (who may use this machine several hours per session to view clients and motivate them towards healthier skin safety behaviors), have a concern about the possible emission of u/v or mercury, especially if the flourescent bulbs are scratched or old?!

I can see where you would be concerned with this, however you’ll probably find more information from the manufacturer of the scanning machine you are using. Please feel free to contact me with further questions. Best skin care wishes.
