It is very important for estheticians to know the contraindications for massage.
Estheticians are allowed by law to perform many types of massage, including deep tissue work.
Massage should not be performed as part of back facials or body treatments.
Massage therapists should not be performing facial treatments.
You should use the ends of your fingertips when performing effleurage.
Vibration should be performed for at least one minute on each area of the face being massaged.
Most massage techniques are based on Swedish massage movements.
Every muscle has a motor point where pressure or stimulation will cause contraction of that muscle, nerve stimulation, and overall relaxation.
Pressure point massage is a form of effleurage.
When performing facial massage, an even tempo promotes relaxation.
Massage movements should be focused on using pressure so that the direction of blood flow is moved away from the heart, toward the extremities.
When performing a cleansing massage, you should use a deep-penetrating cream.
Appropriate massage movements are based on the anatomy of the facial structure, nerves, and muscles.
You should use moderate-to-heavy pressure when making downward movements on the side of the face.
You should use tapping movements when transitioning from the underside of the chin to the right cheek.
Estheticians only need to be familiar with facial machines if they will be working with them regularly.
There are no contraindications for electrotherapy.
UV lamps are not effective for disinfection.
After you clean and disinfect the hot-towel cabinet, its door should be left closed for the night.
When selecting a magnifying lamp, those that sit on a floor base are preferred over those that attach directly to a facial cart.
You should always tighten the adjustment knobs on a magnifying lamp before moving its arms up or down.
When examining the sides of a client's face, you should move the lamp back and forth while the client remains still.
Pigmentation that shows up under the Wood's Lamp cannot be completely lightened with products or treatments.
Before using a brush machine on a client, you should moisten the brush.
You should not apply pressure when using the brush machine on a client's skin.
Couperose skin benefits from extensive steaming.
You should not spray the hot glass jar reservoir on a steamer with disinfectant before it has cooled off.
The galvanic machine converts alternating current into direct current.
If clients reports a metallic taste in the mouth after galvanic machine treatments, you should instruct them to seek medical treatment.
Desincrustation solution is formulated to be absorbed by the skin.
When performing a desincrustation treatment, you should keep the electrode constantly moving to avoid over-stimulating an area.
When performing iontophoresis, if the product is positive, you hold the positive electrode and the client holds the negative electrode.
When performing iontophoresis, oil-based products penetrate better than water-based products.
Metallic electrodes should never be placed directly on the skin.
Metal electrodes should be disinfected in an autoclave.
High-frequency current is recommended to achieve product penetration.
Electrodes should typically be replaced every few months.
When using high-frequency, a glass tip electrode is used to direct sparking to a specific area, such as an acne lesion.
Only a professional wax bath machine should be used to heat paraffin wax.
When purchasing electrotherapy machines, it is important to consider insurance coverage for the devices.
