A tough new tanning law is in effect in New York state Wednesday.

The law prohibits children under the age of 17 from using indoor ultraviolet tanning devices, and those who are 17 need a parent's consent to use a tanning bed.

Previously, the total ban applied to children under age 14.

Dermatologists say not all parents are responsible enough to understand the risks.
