Getting Ampoule Cuts from Dermatology Beauty Serums
Ampoules are small containers made from glass, usually carrying around 2 millilitres of beauty serum or medication. In the beauty industry, they have gained much popularity in recent years due to the rise in K-Beauty trends. Dermatologists and aestheticians recommend ampoules for targeting specific skin concerns such as hyper pigmentation and eczema, particularly for facial skin.
The use of glass ampoule creates a reliable vacuum-seal which protects the active ingredients from exposure to outside contaminants and oxidisation. Ampoules also mean that exact individual doses can be administered without the need for measurement.
Glass ampoules can be tricky to open by hand, and without caution, can lead to cuts or spillage. Even experienced dermatologists and aestheticians can feel anxious when opening glass ampoules.
Trained medical professionals who open ampoules daily can also be injured while opening ampoules. In a study regarding the incidence of ampoule injuries among anaesthetists, more than 50% had experienced a cut from a glass ampoule. Studies among nursing cohorts also show a high incidence of ampoule cuts, with over one-third of nurses reporting that they’d had an ampoule injury during their career.
An ampoule opener can streamline this opening process to make it easier and safer for the user. In addition, ampoule openers help to reduce spilling of expensive medication or beauty serums.
