Your Manicure, Your Health

Your Manicure, Your Health

by Lindsey Carr @ Nail News - Dr. Dana Stern | Dermatologist | Nail Specialist

The recent article in The New York Times highlighting the nail salon industry in the metropolitan New York City area exposes the economic, social, and health-related hardships of the nail technicians.  As a board certified dermatologist and nail specialist, with a nail focused practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, I also find the health implications for consumers of a virtually unregulated, fast-growing, $8.54 billion a year industry to be of grave concern.

The prolific growth of the nail salon industry over the last few decades has resulted in the commoditization of manicure and pedicure services.  Like all commodity businesses, the low cost provider generally prevails.  In New York City, the nail salon capital of the U.S., there is a salon on practically every block and consequently enormous pressure for salon owners to keep costs as low as possible.

Every day in my office I see patients with salon related nail issues ranging from trauma induced lifting of the nail to serious staph infections.  There have been reports of hepatitis acquired from improper disinfection of nail equipment.  More common is the spread of fungal infections and warts caused by the re-use of ‘one-time use’ disposable items such as emery boards, buffers and toe separators.  These are porous tools that cannot be disinfected.  Too often, salons are re-using these items to cut costs with little regard for the safety of their customers.  Lack of regulation, coupled with an extremely low margin service has resulted in an environment where health, safety and a clinically driven educational emphasis within the salon environment are low priorities. 

According to NYC Public Advocate Letitia James’s policy report in September 2014, based on data from the Department of State inspection of New York City salons from 2008 to 2012, the majority of salons — 56 percent — were in violation of health and safety rules.  Currently, the City of New York is not responsible for addressing health and safety in salons.

Proper disinfection of salon equipment requires employing best practices and training technicians; an investment of time and money.  Pedicure footbaths, for example, should be disinfected for 10 minutes with an EPA-registered hospital disinfectant after every client.  In a salon setting, where margins are lean and time is money, it is challenging for technicians to follow proper disinfection protocols.

Continuing education for salon technicians is offered at tradeshows, conferences and online.  However, these courses are costly and not a reality for nail technicians who are making significantly less than the minimum wage.  Instead, in-salon training is provided by salon owners whose priorities are driven by increasing the bottom line, which can be in conflict with promoting health, safety and educational growth of their employees.

The salon industry in NYC is not necessarily representative of how salons do business nationwide but the current NYC urban salon paradigm poses a significant threat to the nail salon industry as a whole.  The existing economics foster a situation where cost saving choices have compromised the health and well being of both the salon worker and the customer, giving rise to a significant public health issue. 

Consumers must be able to objectively evaluate salons in order to make informed decisions.  Salon workers deserve to work in an environment where their health, safety and well-being are a priority and where they are compensated fairly.  Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. recently proposed implementing a letter grading system for salons in New York City akin to the system now in place for scoring city restaurants.  The grades should reflect adherence to strict health guidelines as well as an evaluation of the health and well being of the salon workers.  This system would promote greater transparency and allows the consumer to choose a salon using an informed decision making process.  Lower graded salons, that presumably pose a health risk to both the public and salon workers, would inevitably be weeded out and close.

 The current salon model is failing both its customers and its workers.  A serious change in oversight and accountability is needed.  This will benefit the public, salon workers and the salon owners who take seriously the quality of the services they provide.

It is tick season...

It is tick season...

by Lindsey Carr @ Nail News - Dr. Dana Stern | Dermatologist | Nail Specialist

It is tick season in The United States.  Whether it is The American Dog Tick (a carrier of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Tularemia), the Blacklegged Tick (most in famous for spreading Lyme, Anaplasmosis, and Babesiosis), the Dog Tick (carrier of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever), or the easiest of the bunch to identify, the Lone Star Tick (carrier of Ehrlichiosis, Tularemia and STARI), ticks are omnipresent at this time of year no matter where you live.  If you live on the East Coast, chances are that you know someone who has recently removed a tick or has been diagnosed with Lyme’s disease.  There is so much confusion when it comes to this topic and so back by popular demand, the Dr. Dana Tick Blog.  Here are some tips and resources to help you and your family stay safe this summer!

 

Prevention:

·      Check for ticks daily, especially under the arms, in and around the ears, inside the belly button, behind the knees, between the legs and in the buttocks, around the waist, and on the hairline and scalp.  Children should be checked every night at bath time as part of your spring/summer routine if you live in a tick endemic area.

·      If you have spent time in a wooded or grassy area remove, wash and dry all clothing on high heat and shower as soon as possible.

·      Permethrin based insect repellant can be very effective for tick prevention.  The product should be sprayed on clothing or shoes and NOT directly on skin.  Several brands such as Repel are available on-line.

·      Create a “tick-safe” yard by mowing the lawn frequently, keeping leaves raked, and having children play away from tall grasses.  Consider having your property sprayed.

·      Treat your dogs and cats as recommended by your veterinarian.  Do not allow them into your bed or on your furniture, as they are a possible vector for carrying ticks.

 

How to safely remove an attached tick:

·      Fine tipped tweezers are best.

·      Place tweezers as close to the skin as possible.  Try to grab at the base of the tick (the tick’s head).  Pull upward with a slow and steady motion.  Do not be alarmed if part of the tick remains embedded, as disease transmission is not possible without the whole tick.  Try to remove the remaining segments.

·      Wash the area with soap and water.

·      Put the tick in a sealed baggie ie. a ziplock™ and label the bag with the date the tick was removed and location.  Your dermatologist can have the tick analyzed to identify the type of tick as well as whether that particular tick has the organisms within it that cause disease.  This information can be very helpful in guiding therapy.

 

Important tick facts:

·      In general ticks need to be attached for 36-48 hours before they can transmit Lyme disease bacteria.

·      If you find a tick that has likely been attached to your skin for less than 72 hours and you are >8 years old, an important study has shown that taking one dose of Doxycycline can dramatically reduce your chance of getting Lyme’s Disease.  (87% effective) Call your dermatologist to discuss the best approach for you.

·      There are several different types of ticks (Ixodes, Lone Star, Dog Tick etc), and each tick has different stages of growth when they may or may not carry disease.  This is why identifying the tick can be very helpful.

·      Most humans are infected through bites of immature ticks called nymphs.  Nymphs are tiny (less than 2mm) and difficult to see without a magnifier; they feed during spring and summer months.

·      Ticks can be carried by deer, rabbits, birds, squirrels, mice, dogs and cats and therefore all of these animals are potential vectors for the spread of tick-born illness.

Please call my office if you would like to come in to have a tick tested or if you have any tick related questions or symptoms.

Dr. Dana's Top 10 Salon Safety Tips

Dr. Dana's Top 10 Salon Safety Tips

by Lindsey Carr @ Nail News - Dr. Dana Stern | Dermatologist | Nail Specialist

My patients and closest friends are always asking me if I am pro mani-pedi and what nail salon is cleanest?  My answer is simple.  I believe that everyone should be able to enjoy a relaxing manicure and pedicure, after all when our hands and feet are manicured we feel put-together, in control and ready for anything.  As a dermatologist, surgeon, and mother I like to keep my nails short and clean while never compromising on style.  However, nail care MUST be done in a healthy and safe way.  I like to tell my patients that they need to take their health into their own hands.  Why?  According to NYC Public Advocate Letitia James’s policy report in September 2014:

 • When the Department of State inspected New York’s salons from 2008 to 2012, they found a majority — 56 percent — to be in violation of health and safety rules.

• Customers have been infected with hepatitis and staph infections due to unclean conditions in nail salons.

• There are no regulations governing proper ventilation in salons.

• Nearly 75 percent of nail salons in the U.S. don’t comply with standards for disinfecting nail equipment. This includes reusing nail files and failing to sanitize foot baths. The latter can cause staph infections, hepatitis and bacterial infections.

While most of us want to turn a blind eye to these statistics, it is my job and mission to educate my patients and friends so that you can continue to enjoy salon services but do so in a healthy and ultimately beautiful way.  I go to salons and you too can and should enjoy your next mani pedi. With the help of my top ten salon safety tips, you are now armed with information and ready to kick back, relax and be healthy and beautiful.

 

 1.  Cuticle oil dropper vs. brushCuticle oil must be dropped as opposed to brushed onto a client’s cuticles.  Cuticle oil brushes are not sanitary to use on multiple clients because oils can easily harbor organisms such as bacteria and fungus.

 2.  Emery Board – This is a one time use item and should be used on only one client and then discarded!  Porous emery boards can harbor organisms such as bacteria and fungus. 

 3.  Buffing Block – These tools can be miracle workers for buffing out superficial nail alterations or for polishing the nail to a beautiful shine but be careful that your nail technician is using the right grit for your nails!  Buffing grits vary like sandpaper grades and many of the buffers out there are meant for acrylics and not natural nails.  This is a one time use item and should be used on only one client and then discarded!  Porous buffing blocks can harbor organisms such as bacteria and fungus.

 4.  Orange Sticks – These harmless looking double sided sticks often have a sharp tip on one end that is used for cleaning under the nail and a blunt tip on the other end used for pushing back at the cuticle.  Be careful with cleaning under the nail as a sharp object under the nail can cause the nail to separate from the nail bed.  In salons these tools should be one time use only!

 5.  Toe separators – Although great for keeping your toenails from smudging your perfect pedi, these foamy devices can harbor organisms such as bacteria and fungus and should be disposed after use.

 6.  Whirlpool footbaths – I apologize in advance for this one, you are not going to like what you hear.  You should never place your feet in a salon foot spa that has jets.  It is impossible to clean in the space behind the jets and these baths are supposed to be disinfected by using a 10-minute bleach bath in between every client.  These tubs can therefore put you at risk for acquiring a bacterial or fungal infection.  In an extreme case, there was a death reported secondary to a pedicure in the state of Texas when a woman acquired a staph infection from a pedicure footbath.  Alternative options do exist.  Do not be embarrassed to ask for a plastic basin to soak your feet in.  You can also visit salons that only use basins without jets or you can always request a dry pedicure.  

 7.  Hand washing – This may sound obvious, but you might be surprised!  Your nail technician should always wash his or her hands before and after attending to you. 

 8.  Ventilation – Have you ever walked into a salon and been overwhelmed by the smell of chemicals in the air?  While there may be some of you out there like Jennifer Lawrence's character Rosalyn in American Hustle who love the smell of a really sticky top coat, salons are supposed to have special ventilation systems to ensure the health and safety of both the salon workers and the salon clients.  A super, toxic smell is never a good sign!

 9.  Pumices – We are not huge fans of these volcanic derived stones that are often used as abrasives for removing callus.  Although they can work well for callus removal, they are extremely porous, cannot be disinfected and once they become wet they become the perfect place for molds, bacteria and fungus to flourish.  Instead use a file with removable grit or a stainless steel file that can be disinfected after each use.

 10. The "foot razor" - Used to remove calluses, is illegal in many states and should be!  Salon workers are not medically trained to deal with accidental mishaps that can occur with these blades such as cuts or lacerations.  Additionally, if these blades are reused they can transfer serious infections between clients.  Protect Yourself: Use a callous solution or heel cream at home to safely break down hardened skin.  Callus can also be safely removed at the salon with a removable grit file or a stainless steel file that can be disinfected after each use.

Policy Report by Letitia James: How clean is your salon?

Policy Report by Letitia James: How clean is your salon?

by Lindsey Carr @ Nail News - Dr. Dana Stern | Dermatologist | Nail Specialist

Policy Report by Letitia James: How clean is your salon?

 Recently public advocate for the City of New York Letitia James released a report “How Safe is Your Nail Salon?” outlining several public health concerns with NYC nail salons and calling for more meaningful regulations as well as increasing the number of inspectors and establishing more stringent guidelines in order to protect the public health and safety of New Yorkers.  As a dermatologist and nail expert with a New York City practice focused on nail disorders and nail surgery I am at the forefront of the issues that Letitia James describes such as nail care products with harmful ingredients that can be damaging to the skin and nails, inconsistent salon safety standards, government safety and hygiene regulations that are not being enforced, and infectious and trauma related issues.  I am privileged to be in a position to offer treatment to patients with nail issues who seek my care on a daily basis and although I believe that everyone should be able to enjoy a relaxing manicure or pedicure there are several precautions that you should take in order to prevent a manicure or pedicure disaster. 

 

 The first impression of the salon is very important.  When you walk in, does the overall appearance feel clean?  Look around at certain details.

 

-Are the floors clean?

-Are the technician’s licenses displayed, and do the photos match up?

-Are the licenses up to date?

-Do the technicians wash their hands before and after each client?

-Are the products in properly sealed, well labeled containers?

-Is the salon well ventilated?

 

Look at the implements:

 -How are they being sanitized and disinfected?

-Where are they being stored in between clients?

-Are they using one-time use items such as emery boards, orange sticks, pumices, buffers, and toe separators once?  Or are they erroneously reusing?

 

There is quite a bit to take in when visiting a salon, especially for the first time.  Although most salons adhere to strict disinfection guidelines, if you are concerned and want to “take your health into your own hands” I would suggest that you bring your own tools and sanitize them at home by cleaning them in hot, soapy water, boiling, and then drying and storing them in a dry place.  Make sure that you never visit a salon if you have an open wound or active infections in the area where you are receiving your service as this could put you at risk for developing a skin or nail infection and having to visit me!  Last, but not least, never ignore abnormalities that appear after a salon service.  If you are concerned about an issue be it an allergy to a product or a possible infection then seek care from a board certified dermatologist immediately.

Male Nail Care - Is There Such A Thing?

Male Nail Care - Is There Such A Thing?

by Lindsey Carr @ Nail News - Dr. Dana Stern | Dermatologist | Nail Specialist

I am very popular at dinner parties.  Inevitably, the typical scenario is several people know or learn that I am a dermatologist and at some point during the evening I am oh so subtlety motioned into a dark corridor or to a far reaching powder room where I am asked to view a suspicious mole on a leg, an odd and persistent rash on someone’s chest, or commonly an abnormal looking toenail.  Modesty does not usually come into play during these intimate interactions and very often these bathroom consults veer off into additional personal anecdotes relating to prescriptions, sleep habits and sexual issues. 

Recently at a dinner party I was seated at a table with a healthy mix of hedge funders and art world.  Prepared for the usual discussions of the art bubble, where everyone is booked at Basel and the latest activist investor controversies, the conversation suddenly turned to me and my area of expertise – nails.  It soon became apparent that everyone at the table – (yes, the macho Wall Street guys too) was openly discussing their last pedicure experience. 

This was so much more interesting than the usual dinner party chatter and it was so enlightening to learn that men are not only engaging regularly in professional nail care but that they are talking about it openly and unapologetically.

Perhaps it is no surprise, then, that the salon and beauty industry are taking notice.  Man cave stylized Hammer & Nails Salon, an all male salon that opened on Melrose Avenue in LA was the brain-child of Michael Elliot who observed that men want to feel groomed but don't necessarily feel comfortable walking into a female dominated and decorated space.  Per The New York Times, over half of the men’s treatments in the Essie nail area at the posh Samuel Shriqui Salon on the Upper East Side are finished with polish, usually clear.  And while men are currently favoring a naked nail, shiny buff or a simple coat of clear there is a definite new openness towards color.  Thanks to social media, celebrity culture has shared and embraced the “man-icure” trend.  From Snoop Dog’s nail art on Instagram to Brad Pitt’s rainbow stripe manicure that he recently sported at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, it is clear that nail care is no longer exclusively a female cultural norm.

Nail care is about being kempt and caring about your appearance, hygiene and health.  Soft feet and well manicured toenails are appreciated by any partner under the sheets.  For those who are still not ready to enter a nail salon, here are some tips that you can do at home to step up your hand and foot game.

 1) Invest in the right tools.  For a basic manicure and pedicure all that you will need is a new high quality fingernail clipper, toenail clipper, nail file and a cuticle nipper.  If you suspect that you may have toenail fungus, you will need two sets of implements and should see a dermatologist.

 2) Use the tools properly.  After clipping your nails use the file to smooth any sharp edges.  The cuticle nipper is only used when you have the occasional hang nail.  Hang nails should never be pulled off or bitten as they are a very common site for infections.  For general cuticle care simply push them back after a shower with a wash cloth and apply your favorite cuticle cream, balm or oil, especially in cold, dry weather.

3) Remember to clean your tools by rinsing them with antibacterial or dishwasher soap and then soaking them for 5 minutes in either Isopropyl alcohol or Ethyl Alcohol (70%-90%).  Swab the tip with alcohol before use.

As I wandered back to join the rest of the dinner party despite the fact that I had disappeared into a dark corridor with a mystery guest my husband had not batted an eye.  He knows the drill, he asks me how many consults I have done so far that evening and suggests that I send a bill in the morning…
