Working with cutting and piercing instruments, the master can inadvertently damage the skin, with a risk of falling into the wound infection (bacteria, fungi, pathogens of herpes, hepatitis B or AIDS)
What type of manicure less traumatic?
There are different types of manicure and pedicure, but lately especially popular European edging manicure - it is carried out without maceration of the skin without the use of cutting tools. On the cuticle and skin around the nail bed is applied to a special agent that softens the dead cells. Softened cuticle is then removed using an orange stick. As a result of the cuticle around the nail and the skin is not damaged, besides the cuticle itself with each such procedure is becoming thinner and nearly stops the growth.
European manicure is particularly suitable for those who have very thin and delicate skin or who vessels are located very close to the surface. And the results of such care on the delicate skin will be seen much more quickly. For those who have a tough skin and thick cuticle, have patience - the result will be visible after more treatments than people with thin skin, but also the result of this will be great!
Another kind of dry and not edging manicure - hardware. It differs from conventional nail trimmer that the cutters are replaced by special rotating grinding cup. Make a manicure more often in order to correct the shape of the nail and align their surface.

Knowing these rules, you can track compliance by their employees of the salon in which you asked for the service. Remember, that:
At the disposal of the master should have several sets for manicure (usually at least three). Complete tools disinfection takes several hours, and it is impossible to have time to service all customers with one to two sets unless shorten processing times. But the guarantee of security can serve only as required for complete disinfection time! Therefore, be careful to master when you opened the package with sterile instruments, which it will do you a manicure or pedicure;

Remember that doing manicures, hepatitis can lie in wait for you at the non-sterile instrument mastera.Dlya to completely clean manicure equipment from potential pathogens, such treatment is totally inadequate. Especially since the majority of the most dangerous bacteria and viruses very quickly adapt to any aggressive environment and mutate. Full processing is as follows: first the instruments are placed in a special solution for the time necessary to kill HIV and viral hepatitis. Then all of the accessories are placed in an ultrasonic bath, which removes the finest particles of the skin or the blood. Thereafter, instruments are washed in distilled water;
The final processing step - sterilization in an autoclave or oven top land. The autoclave bacteria and viruses are destroyed by dry steam cabinet top land in this happens by heat. Tools that are kept in such cells for several hours, completely sterilized and are absolutely clean and safe;
Most materials and tools, in direct contact with the skin and blood should be disposable. Cotton pads, capes, towels, bed sheets - all this should be a one-off;
All funds are used for manicure and pedicure (lotions, sprays, creams, etc.) Must contain antiviral and antibacterial components.
Of course, a small hair salon or a wizard that makes your manicure at home, is unlikely to have a full arsenal of tools required for disinfection and sterilization.
