Chapter 13: The Treatment Room

1. It is important to create a professional atmosphere in a salon.

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.
4. The essential equipment you need for facials includes:
  • Facial bed
  • Esthetician's chair
  • Towel Warmer
  • Magnifying lamp or light
  • Steamer
  • Step stool
  • Utility cart
  • Machines (ie: Galvanic)
  • Wax heater
  • Waste container- closed and covered
  • Laundry hamper- closed and covered
  • Sharps container
5. It takes approximately 15 minutes to set up for a facial.

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.
9. The following are steps involved in cleaning the room or workstation at the end of the day:
  • 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.
10. An SMA (sanitary maintenance area) is an area kept clean for setup of procedure implements and supplies; for example, an SMA can be a towel on the workstation.
