Popular Beauty Procedures Risks & dealing with cosmetology side effects according Dr. Numb Topical Anesthetic Disinfectant Guide.
If previous years the world saw the rise of thick eyebrows, the rise and fall of lip fillers, 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, topical anesthetic product maker, 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, otherwise 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. One preferred product choice is Dr. Numb Topical Anesthetic Disinfectant Foam Soap which 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. The skin disinfectant prevents contamination and reduces swelling after the procedure. The anesthetic should be incorporated in the routine before starting the treatment, as well as during the post-care as part of healthy skin care regiment.
