Dr. Numb Investigates the Risks of 2019 Most Popular Beauty Procedures
If previous years the world saw the rise of thick eyebrows, the rise and fall of lip fillers, but the 2019 is truly the year of cosmetological skin treatments. According to YELP Beauty Report, this year’s most popular beauty trends are Dermaplaning and Microneedling. A trend for clean, glowing and young-looking skin is on the rise, and new beauty treatments emerge on a daily basis. It is important to know, though, that even the most minimally invasive treatments can result in unwanted side effects for the skin, so Dr.Numb shares how to avoid any issues in pursuit of radiant complexion.
Microneedling, Dermaplaning, Mesotherapy – these and many other treatments aim for rejuvenation by provoking the production of collagen or infusing the skin with hyaluronic acid and other nourishing elements. As all of these treatments are somehow invasive (as they involve pin-pricking or injections), one has to follow certain safety rules and make sure the skin preparation and post-care are performed in the right way, otherways the positive outcome can be overshadowed by such unwanted side effects like:
- Skin inflammation;
- Flaking of the skin.
The skin is usually protected by bacteria that form a part of normal skin microbiome, aimed to serve as a barrier to protect the skin from inflammation and infection. Although, during such cosmetological procedures as Microneedling and Dermaplaning, the upper layer of the skin is being penetrated, which makes is exposed to aggressive bacteria.
Sanitizing the skin should be a mandatory step before starting any cosmetological treatment. Dr. Numb Topical Anesthetic Disinfectant Foam Soap is a product that contains 4% lidocaine for providing temporary relief of pain and discomfort, and 0.25% Benzethonium Chloride responsible for disinfecting microbes before and after skin procedures. It prevents contamination and reduces swelling after the procedure. Dr.Numb Foam Soap should be incorporated in the routine before starting the treatment, as well as during the post-care.
Use Dr. Numb® Topical Anesthetic Disinfectant Foam Soap to cleanse the targeted area. Shake well before each use. Apply 2 to 3 pumps of foam soap and gently rub into the skin. Leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse off gently with running water or wipe with clean paper towel. Make sure to cover the bottle tightly when not in use, otherwise, the anesthetic effect will be lessened.
