Does skin absorb henna?
What is the likelihood that the XXXXXXX (the XXXXXXX itself or it's lead content) has done damage to blood vessels or nerves, and is there anything we can do about it now?
Thanks for posting your query on HealthcareMagic.
XXXXXXX is XXXXXXX that colours the external skin surface only.
It cannot penetrate the skin and reach the underlying tissues.
Presence of lead and impurities in dyes is a matter of debate and can be proven when a test for objectionable substances is undertaken.
The fine lines that you see on the fingers is not due to staining of blood vessels or nerves.
It could be due to accumulation of XXXXXXX at one spot and thus resulting in over stained lines.
The colour of the XXXXXXX comes off in few days and then you can see that there is no staining of underlying structures.
In case you have more queries, I will be glad to assist.
Thanks and take care
