How Cosmetics Can Affect MRI Scans

What is an MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It's like a giant camera for looking inside your body!

The Power of Magnets

MRI machines use powerful magnets to take pictures of your insides.

Cosmetics and MRIs

Did you know? Some cosmetics contain tiny metal particles.

Metal in Makeup

These metals can react to the MRI's magnets. This could affect the scan!

Lotions, creams, and even some lipsticks can have metals.

Types of Cosmetics

The metals might make the MRI pictures blurry or unclear.

Why It Matters

Before the Scan

Doctors usually ask you to remove makeup before an MRI.

Staying Safe

This helps make sure they get a clear image to look at!

If unsure what's safe, always ask your doctor before your scan.
