STERILIZATION PRACTICES

As sanitation is a major concern in our industry but not strictly monitored it is imperative that our standards are in place for the

health and safety of our clients and employees.

Here are a few suggestions on what to look for in all businesses supplying esthetic services.

1.Ensure that your technician has the proper certification and training for the service(s) being provided.

2. You should always be asked to fill out a health questionnaire before treatments. There are certain medications., allergies,

conditions and sensitivities that may alter the type of products and techniques that are safe to use.

3. Check into the sterilization techniques that are used. All non-disposable implements must be sterilized correctly. Solutions used

for sanitization need to be hospital grade disinfectants or Isopropyl Alcohol. Most nail files, block buffers and orange wood sticks

are single use and should be disposed of after every use.

 

Outlined below are a list of our policies and practices.

*Non-disposable implements are scrubbed, disinfected and soaked in a bath of 70% Isopropyl Alcohol between every use.

*Disposable linens, non-latex gloves and paper are used in all applicable treatments.

*Pedicure bowls are scrubbed & sprayed with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol between every use.

*We don’t use pedicure sinks with jets because the piping in the jets can hold fungus and bacteria if not properly cleaned and

disinfected between every use.

*We use Resin pedicure bowls. Resin is a non-porous material, meaning it won’t absorb any bacteria or fungus it may come in

contact with.

*We only use nail files, block buffers and orange wood sticks once if they are not made from materials that can be sanitized.

* A health questionnaire is filled out upon each new guests arrival to ensure the health and safety of both our clients and our

estheticians.
