Electric drill manicures ‘can save your life’
- by admin
The manicures are one of a growing number of DIY solutions being used by patients and doctors to help keep their hands and feet healthy, from removing razor blades to improving skin and hair care.
But they’re also a risky business.
The products come with serious side effects, including a rare form of cancer called melanoma.
They’re also costly.
So how can patients and healthcare professionals avoid becoming patients themselves?
To help, HuffPost Live spoke with dermatologists and experts to find out how the best electric drill and manicure treatments work and what you can do to save yourself and your loved ones.
Dr. James R. Hirsch, a dermatologist in Philadelphia, says he uses the electric drill because he has patients who need to work hard and be physically active.
“When you use the drill, you’re literally doing what’s in your body when you’re at the desk, and it’s not the drill in the palm of your hand.
It’s the hand you’re working with, and you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing.”
Dr. Jennifer E. Schreiber, an occupational dermatologist at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, agrees. “
The drill works for most people, but it’s very dangerous.”
Dr. Jennifer E. Schreiber, an occupational dermatologist at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, agrees.
She says that the only way to safely perform a manicure is to use the proper technique.
“If you put your hands on your body, it will be more of a stretch,” she says.
She recommends applying a light touch to the top of your fingers.
“Don’t just get it on the top,” she warns.
“It should be on the sides of your body.”
If you’re a person who has a high risk of developing melanoma, Hirsch recommends applying an anti-wrinkle cream.
“This cream will reduce your risk of melanoma by 75 percent,” he said.
He also recommends avoiding use of products containing ingredients that can trigger skin cancer.
“There are a lot of chemicals out there that you can use, but if you do use them, you can’t use them in the wrong way.”
Schreiber says the best way to treat burns and burns that develop on the skin is to apply a lotion that will help reduce inflammation.
“You can put it directly on the burn, but that can make it more prone to blistering,” she explains.
“And if you’re burning your hands and you put too much on the burning area, it can cause more blistering.
It may not help your skin and it may not make it less prone to irritation.”

Dr. Peter J. Miller, a clinical dermatologist and founder of The Dr. Miller Clinic in Phoenix, AZ, says the electric nail drill is a popular option for patients who have trouble with their nails because it’s less painful than a nail file.
“Most people don’t like to have nails cut off,” he explains.
The drill can be used for about a minute, “and it’s really safe and it can work,” he adds.
Miller suggests that patients apply the nail file first, and then the electric Drill first.
“A good drill will work for a little while,” he recommends.
“Then you can just do a nail and you can start with a file.
If it’s good, you’ll know when you’ve got good nails.”
The best way for people to get the most benefit from the electric drilling is to make sure their nails are dry before applying the nails.
“In the morning, before I go to work, I like to make a bucket of ice water and put it in my hands,” says Miller.
“I’ll make sure I’m not doing any nail-biting.
Then, I put the nail in and I put it down.
If the nail is dry, it won’t be able to penetrate into the skin.”
To make sure your nails are safe, Miller recommends using a nail polish remover, which he says can remove “some of the chemicals that cause skin irritation.”
“I have clients who have very sensitive skin,” he continues.
“So, the best thing is to keep them away from all chemicals and then just do their nails on the other hand.”
To help keep your nails from drying out too quickly, Miller says to use nail polish as soon as you put the drill on your nails, rather than waiting for the polish to completely dry before putting the drill to work.
“My clients who are getting the most from the drill are usually the ones who are really careful and have really good nail hygiene,” he notes.
“Because they’re applying it very quickly, it’s also important to use water and not the nail polish, because then the polish can be really hard to remove.”
