What is the nose piercing and its species

Puncture (piercing) of the nose is to set up and wearing jewelry. The nose may be pierced at different locations and using different techniques (with only puncture the skin, the skin and cartilage, the entire wall of the nose):

  • a single puncture or more punctures in the region of one or both nostrils;
  • puncture in the septum of the nose between the nostrils (septum - decoration at the same time is suspended above the upper lip);
  • Horizontal piercing nasal tissue from the nose (the bridge);
  • vertical piercing nasal tissue in the nose (the bridge);
  • vertical puncture tip of the nose;
  • Horizontal puncture tip of the nose (Austin Bar - named after the first owner of the puncture);
  • puncture the bottom tip of the nose (Septra)
  • various combinations of punctures.

Nose piercing is known for a long time, some people (such as India) it did representatives from all segments of the population, in others - only members of the nobility. Today, nose piercing is done in order to wear jewelry, but there were times when it was necessary not only for decoration, but also to indicate the status of the person who wore a decoration.

  • during acute illness;
  • if you are hypersensitive to metals used for jewelry;
  • with reduced blood clotting;
  • in all skin diseases Skin diseases - what to do when violated the basic functions of the skin  Skin diseases - what to do when violated the basic functions of the skin

How is

In the nose a lot of nerve endings and small blood vessels, so the nose piercing can be painful and accompanied by a slight bleeding. But as the puncture procedure is quick, severe pain usually does not happen. Punctures nose made only disposable needles and then into the hole immediately vdevaetsya pretreated antiseptic dressing (special cloves Carnation: exquisite aromatherapy  Carnation: exquisite aromatherapy
 Horseshoe or rings of titanium or gold high fineness), which are not removed until the complete healing of the wound. Heal the wound within 1, 5-2 months, during which time it periodically treated with antiseptics, trying not to irritate the surrounding tissue.

If the patient wants to make repeated puncture (for example, the second decorating), this can be carried out only after complete healing wounds, otherwise the nose may be formed severe scarring.

What complications may occur after the puncture of the nose

The presence or absence of complications at puncture the nose depends on the conditions in which the procedure was carried out and by whom, as well as on the individual characteristics and immunity of the patient.

During the piercing of the nose may occur following complications:

  • wound infection, inflammation, and as a consequence - severe scarring on the skin; this complication is most often in the case where the puncture is not done in a medical facility and people without medical training who does not know the rules of aseptic and antiseptic; as in the nose a lot of blood vessels, the infection can quickly spread to nearby and distant organs;
  • bleeding - trained health workers will easily cope with this complication, if the puncture makes a man without medical training, there may be a serious problem;
  • the formation of a puncture in the rough scar; it often depends not only on the art of the surgeon, but also on the individual patient; can be formed even keloid scars - rose-red shiny, towering above the skin surface, they grow rapidly and are difficult to treat.

Puncture the nose - it is not quite a simple procedure, therefore, is to choose not only a decoration, but also a medical institution where it will be made a puncture. And then the nose piercing really beautify the face.

Electrolysis: a proven method of hair removal - Methods

  • Electrolysis: a proven method of hair removal
  • Methods

What is electrolysis

Elektoroepilyatsiya - the removal of hair from the body surface by an electric current. Apply this method for almost 70 years, and the equipment to carry it out continuously improved. But the basic principle remains the same: to the hair root (follicle) exposure to electric shock (it is fed through a thin needle inserted into the skin), destroying the area of ​​hair growth.

Today, widespread electrolysis methods such as thermolysis, flash, electrolysis, the method of Bland and pincer. The efficiency of electrolysis hair removal method depends on the correct dosage of the current quality of machines and needles, the method used.


Electrolysis by thermolysis

Thermolysis - the removal of hair by means of a high frequency alternating current. This current contributes to rapid heating and destruction of the hair follicle. The process of destruction of hair follicles occurs very quickly, so in this way in a single session, you can remove the hair with a large surface of the body.

The method has a drawback: if the needle is inserted inaccurately follicles are not destroyed. Improper hair growth to calculate the correct insertion of the needle can be difficult.

A variation is a flash thermolysis - effects on hair follicle high frequency alternating current, but the exposure (exposure time) is much smaller. Unfortunately, this method requires precision needle insertion.


Electrolysis by electrolysis

Electrolysis - the influence on the hair follicle is a constant electric current. In the area of ​​the hair follicle thin needle is inserted through which a DC current. Around this needle concentrated sodium salt forming alkali is sufficient to destroy the hair follicle concentration.

This method is good that the accuracy of the needle does not really matter, because the alkaline solution can penetrate into the follicle anyway. But electrolysis takes much longer than thermolysis.


Electrolysis by applying both electrolysis and thermolysis (the method of Bland)

When exposed to the hair follicle at a time by electrolysis and thermolysis chosen a mode of action that allows for the effective removal of hair, thus reducing to a minimum the disadvantages of both methods. Thus exposure of the skin to be shorter than electrolysis and sharper than thermolysis.


Electrolysis pincer method

Pincer method - is the impact on the hair follicle high frequency alternating electrical current by means of an electrode in the form of tweezers. This elektropintset not in contact with the skin, and an electric discharge is transferred to the hair follicles of the hair, causing it to fracture. This procedure is completely painless, does not cause skin irritation, and is most often used when removing hair on the most painful areas (for example, in the armpits).


Apparatus for electrolysis

Today, the equipment is available that allows you to perform all methods of electrolysis - electrolysis, thermolysis, flash and Bland followed by treatment of the skin, slow the growth of hair. Modern equipment allows to pick up the individual parameters for each exposure to the patient (they depend on the treated area, such as hair and skin) and significantly reduce the risk of any complications.

Needles for electrolysis can be gold (hypoallergenic), made of special medical alloy and insulated (reducing skin sensitivity to the impact of pain).
