As a continuation of our “Did You Know?” series with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Davis, today we cover a topic that’s more on the surgical side of things.
Many of our patients come to our office straight from work, which means they typically have a face full of makeup or covered with other products. Here at Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, we have a specific protocol for removing makeup before doing any procedures.
Did you know that topical anesthetic absorbs better on clean skin? To maximize the effects of your preferred cosmetics while remaining comfortable, there are a couple of steps we must take. First, we start off by removing any makeup or excess oils on your skin.
Learn all about why on this week’s video featuring our favorite plastic surgeon, Dr. Davis, in Cherry Hill, New Jersey!
Hi, Dr. Steven Davis. So at Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, we are always trying to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
Many of you come to the office after work and you may have a lot of makeup on or other things on your skin. Oil, grease, whatever, just from a long day.
So one of the things that we want to do at the office is to take off that makeup or just get your skin really, really clean, because did you know that the topical anesthetic that we apply works much better on clean skin?
Also just by rubbing it and getting off the makeup, it’s causing your skin to be more vasodilitated, meaning that the blood vessels are closer to the skin surface, so that the local anesthetic will be absorbed better and you’ll get a better result.
Dr. Steven Davis of Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in Cherry Hill, New Jersey wants to ensure the comfort of all patients, which begins with education. We hope our video series can provide useful information for those with upcoming appointments or interested in the behind-the-scenes action of plastic surgery.
