do trimmers cut the skin?

Guest Timehealsall

Do they? what if you use a trimmer without its guard? Does a trimmer even have a blade? Can the trimmer cut your skin?

Trimmers do have blades (usually two, actually--one stationary blade and one moving blade that actually cuts the hair), and it is possible to nick yourself with them if you're not careful. Usually, it's just a little snag, though, and it only happens if you're not watching what you're doing. As long as you're careful and don't press the trimmer blade into your skin, you should be fine.

if you do nick yourself or cut yourself, does it leave a scar?

It's not a very bad cut, if that's what you mean. Whether or not it scars depends on the person and how they heal. Unless you were really gouging at yourself with the blades, I doubt you'd cut yourself badly enough to scar, though. Look at how tiny the blades are. All they can do is abrade the skin a bit--they don't even really cut it.
