BEACH, Texas — As more people across the U.S. opt to tan less, the demand for new beds has also spiked.
It’s the latest sign that the American tanning industry is facing a resurgence.
But it’s not the only state to be seeing a resurgence of demand.
In Michigan, a new tannery is opening in the city of Flint and plans to open an additional one in the state in the coming months.
And in South Dakota, a similar tanning company plans to start producing beds next year.
The boom in demand is partly due to the fact that tanning is the most common cosmetic treatment in America.
People use tanning creams to remove imperfections, like wrinkles, scars and blemishes, and use it to create new skin tone and look.
In addition, it’s used in some facial treatments as a sunburn remedy.
A study published last year found that the number of new tanneries was up by 35% in 2017.
But the growth of new facilities is expected to accelerate, especially in California, Florida and New York.
In Texas, new tan lines are expanding at an alarming rate.
In 2017, more than 2,000 tanning facilities were built across the state, according to the state Department of Health and Human Services.
The average age of facilities is up from 5 years ago.
In Florida, the state’s second-largest, nearly 10,000 new tan facilities were opened in 2017, up from 1,500 a year ago.
But there are concerns about safety and health.
The state’s health department is also looking into the possibility of more tanning schools in the future.
And there’s growing pressure to have more tannery plants open, said Tom McQuaid, the vice president of regulatory affairs for the state.
“It’s a trend that is not a new trend.
It is very difficult to get the right equipment and facilities that are right for what the skin needs,” he said.
The industry has grown to more than 10 million jobs in the U, and the number is expected grow further in the next decade.
But, McQuade said, it is difficult to predict what that growth will look like.
The demand for tanning bed has increased since the recession, and there is no clear indication that the trend is slowing down.
The trend toward tanning booths in hotels, which offer a safe alternative to needles, mirrors the trends in the medical industry, said Dr. Matthew Langer, an emergency room physician in Chicago and the director of the National Association of Emergency Physicians.
The number of hospitals providing bedside services is also on the rise, and people are choosing to wear gloves when using tanning equipment, Langer said.
But for now, many people do not have the equipment or facilities to get clean, dry skin.
The health department will have to look at the safety of the equipment used in tanning, and whether that’s the same as that of other medical procedures, said Jennifer Lueber, a health officer for the department.
“There is still a need for the health care community to have a good understanding of what’s going on and the risks associated with this and make sure we can address those risks appropriately,” she said.
