JAKARTA - Doing manikur in beauty salons is a popular way to pamper yourself and beautify the appearance of your hands and nails. While this can be a satisfying and pleasant experience, it is important to be aware of potential side effects that may arise from this beauty treatment. From allergic reactions to infections, here are the exploration of several common side effects associated with manikur in beauty salons.

One of the most common side effects that occurs when doing manikur in salons is an allergic reaction to the products used. Nail paints, acrylics, gels, and nail polish removers often contain chemicals such as formaldehyde, toluene, and phthalates (DBP), which can cause allergic reactions in some individuals.

Symptoms of allergic reactions can be in the form of redness, itching, swelling, and irritation around the nails and skin around them. In severe cases, allergic reactions can cause the skin to moisturize, peel, or even contact dermatitis. It is important to tell beauticians about your allergies or any sensitivity before starting a manicur to avoid potential allergic reactions.

Another potential side effect of manihur in nail salons is nail damage. Aggressive filling methods, rubbed, or removal of additional nail material such as acrylic or improper gels can weaken natural nails and cause them to become fragile, thin, or easily broken. Over time, excessive nail treatment can cause long-term damage, including nail thinning or nail base separation. To minimize the risk of nail damage, it is important to choose those with good reputation with experienced beauticians who prioritize the health and safety of clients' nails.

Infections are also a concern related to manicur in salons. Infections of bacteria, fungi, and viruses can occur if good sanitation and hygiene practices are not followed. Unsterled equipment and equipment properly among clients can become a hotbed of bacteria and dangerous pathogens, thereby increasing the risk of infection. Beautician must use clean and sterilized equipment and adhere to strict hygiene protocols to prevent the spread of infection. Clients can also reduce the risk of infection by ensuring that salons they visit maintain high hygiene and hygiene standards.

One of the rarely known side effects of manikur in nail salons is respiratory problems due to exposure to chemicals and harmful smoke. Many nail products contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other toxic chemicals that can emit smoke into the air during their application. This exposure of smoke for a long time in poorly ventilated areas can irritate the respiratory system and worsen conditions such as asthma or allergies. To minimize exposure to hazardous chemicals, clients can choose nail salons with adequate ventilation systems and choose nail products labeled "5-free" or "10-free", which suggests that the product is free from potentially harmful materials.

In addition, there is a risk of injury when doing manicur in a nail salon, especially if proper safety precautions are not followed. Injuries, scratches, or accidental stabs on the skin around the nails can occur during nail cutting procedures, quartic care, or nail broadening. These injuries not only cause discomfort but also increase the risk of bacterial or fungal infection.

Beautician must be careful and use sterile tools to minimize the risk of injury to his clients. Clients can also protect themselves by communicating any worries or discomfort during manihur and ensuring that beauticians take appropriate action to prevent injury.
