The procedure of nail extensions does not lose its popularity. Beautiful and well-groomed nails that do not require care for several weeks – a dream for almost every girl. But only a few know what potential harm to health can cause nail extensions with gel, acrylic or other products of the chemical industry.
Damage to the nail plate
The procedure for nail extensions includes pre-treatment of the nail with abrasive saws. Making this manipulation, the master pursues one goal – to make the nail more rough for better adhesion of the surface to the base layer of the gel. Harm to health, directly depends on the professionalism of the master. For example, a novice master is able to cut too much layer of the nail plate and even make deep furrows. And the more repeated the build-up, the more the natural nail becomes thinner. Such a nail becomes brittle, thin and more often prone to fungal infection.
Infectious complications of manicure
The risk of getting a different kind of infection after visiting the manicure salon is always there. Undoubtedly, in professional offices strictly follow the rules of processing tools after each client or use disposable manicure devices. In small salons or in cabinets at home, the master does not have the opportunity or does not know how to properly handle tools. To such masters it is better to come with your set of tongs and saws.
The most "harmless" infection that can be obtained in the cabin is nail fungus. To do this, it is sufficient only once to treat the nail plate with an infected nail file. And considering that fingernails during a manicure are significantly injured, a fungal infection can cause a lot of trouble. And to cure a nail will be difficult enough.
Inflammation of the okolonogevyh rollers (the skin that surrounds the nail) is another frequent consequence of visiting a beauty salon. It is associated with a skin trauma surrounding the nail, poorly processed reusable tools. Sometimes the developed infection (panaritium) makes one turn to the surgeon.
One of the most serious infections that can be easily obtained in a manicure salon is viral hepatitis B. The hepatitis B virus is extremely stable in the external environment and is not destroyed by various disinfectants. Infectious dose of the virus is very small, getting a small wound even a tenth of a drop of blood from a patient with hepatitis, will lead to the development of the disease. The risk of getting HIV infection is another reason to avoid questionable manicure rooms.
At present, the method of increasing Nail Gel, freezing under the influence of ultraviolet. After applying each layer of gel, the client is offered to hold his fingers under the ultraviolet lamp. Often the total irradiation time at one build-up reaches 10-12 minutes. However, not everyone knows that ultraviolet is a carcinogen, that is, a factor leading to the development of skin cancer. Prolonged and frequent irradiation significantly increases the chances of getting melanoma. To protect your health before irradiation, you should cover the skin of your fingers with a tissue or at least lubricate it with a sunscreen with a high degree of protection. In professional salons do not neglect this rule.
Injury of the nail
Girls who want to instantly acquire very long nails, run the risk of injuring their own. A very thick layer of gel or a long length of artificial nails creates excessive pressure on the natural nail plate, especially if it is thinned. Sometimes it is enough just a little extra impact (nail, scratch) to get a fracture of the nail plate. Injury instantly causes severe pain and often requires the help of a surgeon.
One more thing…
Do not increase nails, if a medical examination is planned. The shape of the nails, the color allows the doctor to make some conclusions about the health status of the entire body. For example, nails in the form of watch glasses (convex) talk about chronic lung diseases. Cyanotic nail plates indicate poor circulation, etc. In addition, a black spot under the fingernail that has arisen spontaneously can be melanoma (cancer). Accordingly, a layer of gel or acrylic will not allow the doctor to conduct a full diagnosis and can significantly complicate the diagnosis.
