Hello to all responsible nail stylists and their clients!
In the first part of the blog, we talked about the most common nail diseases after beauty procedures. We remind you: self-care should not be harmful! Neat, healthy nails are not about how often you paint them in a beauty salon or how deeply you remove the cuticles, but about how scrupulously you choose YOUR technician and how much you know about sterilization, disinfection rules.
And we will return to the topic of nail diseases after manicure and pedicure. Today’s agenda: why are foot baths and cheap polishes dangerous, can the coating cause fragility of nails, and is everything so obvious with ultraviolet lamps?
Micro bacterial furunculosis
And let’s start with a pedicure. A common disease that can be contracted during the procedure is micro bacterial furunculosis. It not only ruins nails but also causes pain, swelling, redness, and itching.
The “home” of the bacteria mycobacterium fortuitum is the pedicure baths built into the chairs. Due to their special design, such containers are difficult to rinse and disinfect.
To reduce the risk of contracting micro bacterial furunculosis, dermatologists advise clients not to shave their legs before a pedicure. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream through fresh wounds.
ADVICE FOR THE TECHNICIAN: All baths, instruments, and auxiliary materials must be sterilized and disinfected. You can also offer the client a disposable cellophane insert for the pre-pedicure bath. And catch a list of rules for a safe beauty procedure.
