No clinical studies have been published documenting the development of pigmentation following the use of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommended exposures from a tanning bed. Panelists were exposed three times weekly for eight weeks (24 exposures) using the FDA recommended exposure schedule. The initial tan was noted after only six exposures and quantitatively increased through the remainder of the study.
