Both infrared and ultraviolet energy is imperceptible to the human eye, and are both capable of damaging the skin. Infrared (IR) is heat energy, therefore an excessive amount of heat energy will damage (burn-off ) skin. IR has a longer wavelength, however, so it will not penetrate the skin deeply. UV energy, due to its shorter wavelength, has the capability of penetrating more deeply into the skin and consequently damaging deeper layers of skin tissues. UV light is harmful because it can mutate DNA. Mutations in DNA can lead to cancer.
