Effective October 1, 2019, it is unlawful for tanning facilities to allow minors under the age of 18 years to use a tanning device, which includes sunlamps, tanning booths, or tanning beds (Chapter 441, 2019 Legislative Session). This does not apply to the therapeutic use of a tanning device when prescribed by a health care provider.
Until October 1, 2019, minors may use a tanning device when appropriate consent is provided on the Department's revised consent form (found here).
