2. Room esthetics are important because your first impression to a client is a key factor in your success.
3. The two most important considerations in preparing and cleaning the room are:
- The services you will perform and how you will work at the station
- how comfortable the client will be in the facial chair.
- Facial bed
- Esthetician's chair
- Towel Warmer
- Magnifying lamp or light
- Step stool
- Utility cart
- Machines (ie: Galvanic)
- Wax heater
- Waste container- closed and covered
- Laundry hamper- closed and covered
- Sharps container
6. Ergonomically correct means that furniture and body positions are healthy for body and spine.
7. Soiled disposable gloves and extraction supplies go in a sealable plastic bag, and then in the appropriate waste container (ie: lancets and needles in a biohazard/sharps container).
8. The following steps are used to properly disinfect implements:
- Wash implements thoroughly with antibacterial soap and dry.
- Place implements in the disinfectant according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- Rinse, dry, and put them away in a covered container.
- Prepare the room, and check the schedule for the next workday
- Use a clean-up checklist to make sure you did not forget anything
- Turn off all equipment
- Refill all containers, wax supplies, and the steamer
- Check floors; sweep or mop as required. Check for wax spills
- Empty waste containers. Replace with clean trash liners
- Remove personal items from the area
- Leave the hot cabbie door open to dry, and empty the tray underneath before sanitizing it
- Clean anything that has not been cleaned after the last service, including the bed, counters, and doorknobs.
