When a lamp fires it ejects and burns carbon built up on the exterior of the filament in the ends of the lamps.  This is a normal occurance and cannot be prevented.  If you, however, are noticing excess amounts of darkening at the ends of the lamps it can indicate other issues such as high voltage or a malfunctioning ballast but only if it is accompied by decreased lamp life.  The darkening of the end of the lamp itself is not an indicator of an issue and does not affect tanning performance of the unit.
