Skin Planing

Skin Planing Abstract One of the hazards of skin planing is to get the wire brush or even the diamond burrs caught in a piece of gauze. In an attempt to avoid this hazard I use sterile Kleenex to mop up while I am planing, and I find that it absorbs blood quickly, and in the event that the brush does contact the Kleenex, only a very minor furor is created. For years, shavers who use a straight or safety razor have felt that cellulose paper, similar to Kleenex, is efficient in inducing clotting and in stopping bleeding of the little nicks made in shaving. It cuts down the bleeding in planing cases too. However, if it is left on for more than 5 or 10 minutes, it adheres to the skin. It is best to open a 2 in. gauze square to single thickness to lay it against the face first, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png A.M.A. Archives of Dermatology American Medical Association
