"What thoughts can you share on lancing client's comedones? Is it ethical or unethical to do so in your opinion? "
Use of a lancet depends on what your state board’s regulations of what you can perform as a therapist. At IDI, we recommend using a desincrustation solution on the skin 10 minutes prior to extractions. This will soften the skin and allow for the comedones to easily remove without causing harm to the skin. In addition, if you have a Galvanic machine, you could use it on the negative polarity with the desincrustation solution to get the best reaction on the skin. This will keep you from having to use a lancet, which, if not used correctly, could be dangerous in causing scarring on your clients.View All Questions
