SALON Facial Stain Cleanser has been specially formulated to help reduce and prevent the appearance of tear and other facial stains. The antibacterial formula helps fight infection, clear tear ducts and remove unsightly mucus build-up which, can cause excess tearing – a common cause of staining. Use regularly to maintain good animal hygiene and, to prevent more serious eye conditions.
Features & Benefits.
The most common cause of facial staining is excess tearing – also known as epiphora. This causes the hair and skin around the eyes to become damp, allowing yeast and bacteria to develop. The reddish brown discolouration of the face is commonly caused by ‘red’ yeast. Whilst the main purpose of this product is to eliminate facial staining, the antibacterial formula provides a number of other benefits:
- Fights bacterial and fungal infection
- Soothes irritation and inflammation
- Deodorises and imparts freshness
How do I use it?
To begin, always examine the eyes to establish potential causes. In some cases the problem can be genetic or heredity to the breed. Whilst in others, it might be the presence of parasites causing general irritation. Either way, it’s important to check before administering any treatment. Assuming the cause does not require veterinary diagnosis, you’re ready to proceed.
Liberally dispense the cleanser onto several cotton swabs. Cleanse thoroughly around the eye socket to remove all dirt and debris. If necessary considering using a veterinary toothbrush to gently dislodge any stubborn mucus build-up. The same brush can also prove useful to separate and treat any deeply stained hair. Repeat the process, using clean a cotton swab to prevent cross infection.
It’s worth noting that deep staining may require more frequent application (over time) to completely eradicate the problem. As such, removing stained hair using a trimmer or fine blending scissors is common practise to quickly reduce appearance and achieve faster results. This can help give clients a better starting point to continue any on-going treatment.
