Follow up on Auto Clave and Sterilization

HaveYouHeard Complete heading

 

When I wrote my article a couple of weeks ago about an Auto Clave and Sterilization, I truly expected a ton of push back.

Although I didn’t get the challenge I expected, I heard from 2 of the most leading authorities in the Foot Care/Nail Care market. Doug Schoon and Dr Spaulding.

I must admit….when I see either of their names come into my email after I wrote an article, I’d be lying if I told you I didn’t get nervous. Are you kidding me? I’m a freaking mess.

But, when I do open it, perspiring ferociously…..they are both so generous in their offering of information it truly makes my heart warm. To know, these two matriarchs of our industry take the time to comment, correct, add to or emphasize something in my article, only makes it better for you.

Let me share with you, what I received from both;

I personally reached out to Doug Schoon and asked him to review my article, before I went to print. But of course, I waited until the last minute so I went to print before I heard back from him. Here is his response;

  • An autoclave is also a sterilizer. I did not mention this in my article
  • UV sterilizers only work when UVC bulbs are used, so only some kinds of UV wavelengths are useful. But they don’t work well because the UV can’t get into small spaces, e.g. pivot points. Also, the implements must be turned to expose all sides. Although I didn’t mention UV in this detail, the article does state they can not be any hidden location for bacteria to grow
  • I don’t think any of these “clean”, so the implements must be precleaned. Noted
  • The side of the spectrum you should listen to are the state board requirement and the Center for Disease Control. My next project
  • Most states require disinfection, so sterilization can only be done on precleaned and disinfected implements, which is overkill. Interesting
  • The last I checked, CDC says autoclaves are the preferred method. Autoclaves are clearly the more effective of the two. AGREED

In addition, un a follow up email, he said “The nail industry is under siege largely because of salons that use incorrect methods.”
So True!                                                                                         

I failed to reach out to Dr. Spaulding because I just flat ran out of time. Having both of them read through it for me, was my first plan. But I did received an email from Dr. Spauldng following the article after he read. This is what he has to say

  • a UV is not a “sterilizer” as it does not kill spores not matter what their information states and use of the word “sterilizer” associated with Dry heat Sterilizer should say Dry heat sterilizer as an autoclave is a “sterilizer as well.

He kindly wrote back There are new “UV” systems that are hospital based that pump UV ozone into a pressurized vessel that is over $100,000 for the operating unit….

Nothing like that is available for any salon nor would it be feasible to have one.

Both of these have provided me with an even bigger insight and understanding to Auto Claves and Sterilizers.

But what excites me even more is the interaction with my clients and my piers I get after writing an article. Especially one that many people are passionate about.

I welcome your thoughts which I will share as I do my job to make an already great community even better.

Happy Disinfecting

Look for even more exciting news coming on our 1-2-3 step disinfection when you can’t afford to buy an auto clave

There IS a difference in files we choose to use in our Salons?

In my early years of Foot Care at my Salon, all I knew from what I learned, is that my job was to make people feel pretty. We weren’t trying to solve problems or identify skin conditions of the feet. We weren’t talking with our clients about at home care between Pedicure visits. We were Pedicurist. By definition, we were caring for the feet by trimming the toenails. The pretty came in via a little bit of sloughing and a nice massage at the end. My how things have changed!

Now, we are Foot Care Specialist. We take advanced classes on Advanced Pedicuring, Infection Control and Diabetic Foot Care. We learn about conditions of the skin, infections of the toenails and what we should and should NOT be doing as Pedicurist in our Salons. We work in Podiatry offices, we care for the Elderly, Diabetes is on the rise and we are presented with conditions of the nails and feet which……we never would learn in school.

However, somehow along the way, we have failed to learn the basics. We go out of our way to learn about “products”. We take classes to learn about “techniques”. We bling, we ombre, we glitter and more. But, we don’t pay much attention to the tools, the implements, the files……..used in our Pedicure service.

We have many different choices available to us these days. The pumice, Peel-n-stick files, cheese graters metal and Stainless Steel. And, I just have to add…..they are NOT paddles. Slap my B— with a paddle, reduce my callouses with a file….thank you very much!

Let’s begin with;

SANDPAPER OR GLASSPAPER-these are names used for a type of “coated” abrasives that consist of paper or cloth with abrasive material glued to the face.

The abrasive which is glued to it, is the grit. Grit refers to the particle diameter. The larger the grit, the smaller the particle size. The smaller the grit, the coarser the particles are.

The glue (or adhesive) used to bond the abrasive to the paper is different as well. Is it heat generated, is it waterproof? Can you use it wet? Or only dry?

Using “sandpaper” whether it’s 1X use, peel & stick or other
is NOT safe for use in our Pedicure rooms!

Grit particles, not seen by the naked eye are “falling” if you will, off
of the paper it is glued to, during the filing process.

Where it is going?

In addition, let me share with you what I hear from many Technicians…..

I perform a service on my client. When she/he leaves my chair the feet are smooth.
Upon return the feet are rough and “split”

Does this happen to you?
Sandpaper shreds the skin, due to it’s irregular heights.
You can not see it, but it IS leaving tiny, little micro tears on the skin which,
over time will produce rough, cracked skin.

SANDPAPER SHOULD BE LEFT FOR SMOOTHING FINISHES FOR PAINTING

PUMICE-A gray stone that comes from volcanoes. It is full of small holes, is very light weight and is used for smoothing.

Okay, great…used for smoothing. But, it can also have very sharp, jagged edges. And, it is also a soft stone which tiny particles can break off and not be seen by the naked eye.

Consider this; Pumice is used as an abrasive in pencil erasers, a traction enhancer in tire rubber, an absorbent in cat litter and a lightweight filler for pottery clay….just to name a few. Pumice can disintegrate.

Pumice leaves tiny micro tears on the skin which, over time
will produce rough, cracked skin.

My biggest concern with Pumice however, is cleanliness. Did you know?

Pumice has to be used wet or it can damage the skin?

Pumice has to be rinsed frequently under warm, running water to wash away skin cell flakes AND prevent the pumice from drying out?

Pumice has to be cleaned after every use (this means after each foot)
A toothbrush with soap is recommended to be used for “several” minutes and then rinsed well in warm, running water (again, after each foot)

Pumice can NOT be sterilized because of the porous nature of the material. Pumice has many dark and caverness hiding places for nasties to grow.

AND……Pumice MUST be air dried completely before storage. If left wet, it is a breading ground for growth of fungus.
SATAN’S PARMESAN GRATER-I’m sorry, need I say more? Educating our clients is the key to solving the problem on how wonderful their feet are after receiving a pedicure with use of a parmesan grater. It IS instant gratification AND in our Society of “what’s in it for me, I want it NOW”……they truly are being taken advantage of.

Parmesan Graters – SHRED THE SKIN
Skin comes back faster AND thicker after use of a PG
It is NOT safe for the elderly a diabetic or for ANYONE

STAINLESS STEEL-Lesson #1. Not all stainless steel is created equal. Steel is a combination of iron and carbon. However, other metals like tungsten, vanadium,, manganese and chromium and nickel is also used. There are different grades and surface finishes of stainless steel, and it is important to have certain properties in order for the stainless steel to be corrosion resistant.

In addition, if a steel is heat treated, coated, formed or forged, a thinner material can be used. A thin file can indicate a higher carbon content of steel which, is not the ultimate for cleaning. This would be an indication of NOT being a high grade surgical steel and cannot be completely cleaned or sterilized.

Surface coating (nickel or chromium) can penetrate the application through the micro abrasions of irregular heights of file surface from forming what creates high areas for micro abrasions. Heat treating splits the cold rolled steel creating fissure or cracks allowing nasties to hide and grow and allows for the material to become bridle. These types of files again, cannot be 100{41aa4bb89c477f1e334505d76149b7c47b1e52c0a22817e445c0fb4c76e652bd} cleaned and sterilized or…….safe.

In fact, the highest quality stainless steel can be cleaned again and again where the cleaning will never compromise the integrity of the file. Lower quality steel loses it’s cleaning bill of health.

I also found out that when a file is made in the USA there is a certification required to verify the quality of the material. Every run (not just 1X per year) has to go through rigid testing on it’s complete makeup. A list of alloys and their percentages are submitted for proper certification and the metal needs to meet EPA requirements for public health and safety.

This means….if a Company is making the claim they are
100{41aa4bb89c477f1e334505d76149b7c47b1e52c0a22817e445c0fb4c76e652bd} Surgical (or Medical Grade) Stainless Steel
They can only be made in the USA
Out of the Country made “stainless steel” files
making this claim…..may be FALSE advertising or cannot be verified,
based on USA consistent and vareifiable standards.
GLASS FILES-Full transparency! I could find absolutely nothing on glass files and how they are made. I welcome anyone who has this information to please share.

Why the talk on files?

We MUST begin talking about our tools and implements.

We MUST be educated to educate our clients!

We MUST realize and completely understand……price should not be an
issue when it comes to using the proper tools in our Pedicure rooms!
Centre for Beauty is starting a campaign to help our technicians….help their clients.

MUSIC IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL?

My schedule since December 2015 has changed drastically. When I made the decision to bring the LCN Urea products into my business, I sincerely didn’t realize the impact it would immediately have.

Mind you, when I began my research to add a new product line back in April 2015, I knew adding a new line would be challenging and a bit more time consuming. After all, my Footlogix business was in full swing and going well. What I didn’t realize was the overwhelming need for a product like the LCN Urea foot care. I’ve been going along for several years growing with the same products i’ve had since the inception of Centre for Beauty, All About Feet. I never ventured out of the box or took the blinders off and expanded my horizons.

I guess why I started this topic is because is the first day in a very long time that I was able to spend a day with my husband to accomplish many personal things that have been put on the back burner for so long. We spent some quality time together. Unfortunately, a very are occurence.

As I end up here towards the end of the day on my patio cleaning and organizing….I am listening to the music channel on the TV. I can’t even begin to remember the last time it was that I listened to music. So, maybe i’m feeling sentimental. Maybe i’m feeling grateful. Maybe i’m feeling all of the above. But, the fact that I am able to slow down and feel something….is an amazing feeling.

Does business have you feeling down? Do you feel overwhelmed with everything you have to do? Are you dealing with personal issues? Whatever it is, take some time to stop and listen to the music. You’ll gain clarity. You’ll feel a sense of relief. You’ll feel refreshed to conquer the next trial or tribulation that comes your way.

You only get what you negotiate?

This past week has been an extremely humbling experience for me.
As a guest speaker at the Premier Orlando show, I learned that much of what I have learned and experienced over my 29 years in the Beauty business
is truly helpful to those who want to listen.

At last count, we had an attendance of over 60 in the classroom
“Pedicuring in the 21st Century”
As much as I would like to think it was because of “me”,
I know emphatically it was more because our Pedicurist are looking for answers.
Answers which can help them “you” succeed in a competitive market,
earn a good living and do what we not only do best, but what we want to do….
take care of our clients.

One of the topics we discussed and received several questions about was
“how do we determine the price(s) of our service(s)?
It’s a legitimate question since on every corner is a Salon,
and on every corner there’s a different price.
It doesn’t matter what City or State you are in,
we all experience the same fluctuations from $15.00 per Pedicure
all the way up to $125.00 per Pedicure and even sometimes more.

I stressed the important of simplicity.
In reality whatever products we use in our service, we have a soak,
a scrub (or exfoliate), a callus debriment product and a massage product.
However, it is important to recognize, not all products are created equal.
If making your client feel good is all that your about, then go for the fluff-n-buff. Products like CND, OPI, Cuccio, Pevonia, Pure Fiji…..
these are all great and amazing brands.
But, they smell good, they feel good….and that’s about it.

If your wanting to make your client feel good AND produce results like this…

then you want to look for “results oriented” brands like
LCN’s Urea Pedicure products (with luxury) (pictured)
or Footlogix (more clinical) products.
Each brand being very cost effective,
safe for the diabetic and produces long lasting results.

BUT…..the true value in setting your Pedicure service pricing comes in YOU!
What is your value and how do you establish a $$$$ amount for that value?
It really is a simple equation

How much education have you had?
How many Professional related books have you read?
How many services have you performed?
How many days on end have your practiced?
How many trade shows have you attended?
How often are you on Social media, constantly learning & following
the leaders in our industry?
Are you using quality products?
Have you made an investment in your business?
Do you practice safe sanitary procedures?
Do you wear gloves?
Are you Professional?
Etc. etc. etc.
The list can go on and on!

If you qualify for any part of the above then you probably should re-evaluate your pricing. Because, as we established in the classroom, the cost breakdown leaves many of us making less per hour than we can make at McDonalds.

So keep this in mind – You only get what you negotiate – !
If you don’t negotiate with yourself on your self worth, your value,
your expertise AND your passion, then there is no negotiation.
You end up on the bottom of the pay scale.

My formula for pricing my menu has always been

Determine my hourly worth
Know what my product cost is
Know how long it will take to perform a particular service
Know what my overhead cost is per square footage
DO THE MATH – CHARGE ACCORDINGLY

Will you lose clients? Absolutely! Will you gain clients? Absolutely!
Will you work smarter not harder? Absolutely!

It is up to all of us to raise the standards in our industry, why not start TODAY!

Nail Salons have been listed as a “Top Growth” industry for 2021?

Thats’ exactly correct….5 years out and NAIL SALONS are recognized to have
19{41aa4bb89c477f1e334505d76149b7c47b1e52c0a22817e445c0fb4c76e652bd} anticipated growth through 2021! This can be exciting yet scary
all at the same time. After all, don’t we have enough competition now?

This is why I keep offering education and new service ideas. It is imperative
in todays market, to realize it isn’t about staying competitive. It’s about
being different. And, being different isn’t just about crazy hair, or how much
bling and blang we provide. It’s about education and professionalism. It’s about
knowing what the guidelines are in Pedicure care. It’s about offering
the best in service quality, the best in safety and
the best we can do for our clients.

I have personally learned so much over my 29 years in the Business. However,
over the past 12 months I believe I have truly learned more about
product ingredients, implement safety and combining the 2 together.

I know i’ve said this before, but we talk so much about safety in air quality, we talk about proper licensing and even higher education. But, are we forgetting about
the safety in the products we use and the tools we use to
manage those products.

There is a specific reason I endorse and carry the products that I offer

I encourage you to research. Don’t take my word for it, but
start really thinking about what is being used in your chair. Have you thought about;

Are the products you are using, abrading or causing discomfort to your client? Example; Callus softening products. If you have to wear gloves, if you have to wear a mask to avoid the burn and the fumes from these products…..what do you think it’s doing to your client’s skin? Better yet, think about the reality of these products? Does your skin heal from the outside in, or the inside out?
Are the tools you use offering the best care to your clients? Example; Files for callous removal are not all created equal. I realize the cheese grater type files, the replaceable sand paper type products, the pumice stones etc, work efficiently in callous removal. But, have you thought about what they do to your clients skin on their feet? There are studies….those tools that I mentioned above shred the skin. The best way for me to describe this is for you to picture a cuticle. We clip, clip, clip around the cuticle edge. Look at that cuticle under a microscope…it will have jagged edges. How will it grow? With jagged edges. Using the wrong tool on your clients feet, is doing the same thing. Therefore, the skin can never repair itself.
What about sanitizing and disinfection? Are you using what you can get by with? Or are you using products which really kill the bacteria and fungi we encounter in our chair? This is a bone of contention with me, because I don’t feel our States emphasize nor recommend the highest quality of disinfection. With that being said, there is so much information via the internet…why do we have to agree with our States? We need to be smarter than them.
My whole point is how this projected 19{41aa4bb89c477f1e334505d76149b7c47b1e52c0a22817e445c0fb4c76e652bd} growth concerns me. Unless we set the high standards, unless we step up our game, the new generation of nail technicians entering into our industry enter the same way many of us did. Lack of education, lack of factual knowledge and a lack of direction.

It is up to all of us to raise the standards in our industry,
why not start TODAY!

It’s the small things that are REALLY BIG?

When I travel, it puts a lot of stress on my entire operation. My office work gets behind, I have limited access for information I receive request for and my family doesn’t have their wife or Mom home. Just to name a few!

In addition, making business decisions, as we have discussed before is also stressful. The decision to expand my product base and add LCN had to be the one most thought out and difficult decision I have ever made in my career as a Distributor.

I had to first find a product I could believe in as much as I do Footlogix. Especially when I’ve been told, “I am the face of Footlogix”. I also had to find a product which you, my clients could believe in as well. Like you, the big box stores and Amazon are a threat to my business and I had to think outside of the box and think about my future and my families future. I had to plan for survival.

Going back to traveling, the exhilaration of meeting my clients when I’m traveling is what keeps me going. But, I can tell you I have never been so validated nor as moved as I was last week when I received the following email from a client, I would not hesitate to call my friend.

Reggie Stephens is cream of the crop when it comes to Pedicures. He is NASP certified receiving his advanced certifications in Pedicuring and Reflexology. And, he takes sanitation and disinfection along with client care….very seriously. Reggie is what all Pedicurist should strive to be like.

Here is what I received:

CJ,

Here’s a little story for ya… I thought about it this morning as we were texting back & forth….

When you separated yourself from Footlogix (corporate) position, and then started bringing in other product lines, I got really upset with you, thinking to myself, how could she do that…. bring in a competing line, etc…. Then one day I was sitting and thinking about it, and realized, that it really was a wise & thoughtful decision, and not an easy one to make…. But it was what was best for you, and (probably) them in the long run…. You took responsibility for growing your business (distributorship) and make the right decisions for your clients.

So I just wanted to tell you that I’m proud of you and what you are doing…. providing a foot focused distributorship, offering the best products for your clients to offer to theirs…. I will always support you in that mission!!!! Just remember that growth is not always a painless effort, that’s why it is called growing pains…..

With love & support…

Reggie Stephens

I wanted to share this with you for a couple of reasons. First, we are never to old and never to confident to receive validation. It just takes one person to remove any doubt from your mind. Although I felt confident my decision has been a good one, this validation from Reggie has allowed me to breath a sigh of relief.

Second, when was the last time you randomly sent a note to one of your clients, or even a team member expressing your gratefulness, your thankfulness for them? When was the last time you made a small gesture and turned it big?

In this Beauty world of Pedicures we live in, the competitors, the big box stores, Amazon….client and team loyalty is HUGE!

I sincerely appreciate all of you and Thank You for your business, for reading my articles, for all you gracious comments and for your continued support.

Thank you Reggie for those kind and humbling words. Thank you for noticing what I do IS for you, my clients and simply…..Thank you for being you!

How many of us have opted for glamour over comfort? When I think about the years of beautiful stiletto heels that I wore party after party during Holiday season, it makes me want to cut my feet off at the ankles, they ache so bad.

____________________________________________________
FUN FACT: Did you know it was men who originated wearing high heels? As early as the 10th century, Persian horseback-riders used heels to help their feet stay in stirrups.

The trend quickly spread to Europe where heels became fashionable for the upper class, including women.

Ever hear the phase “well-heeled”? It was applying to the wealthy.

It wasn’t until the 18th century when high heels became for women only.
