Synopses & Reviews
Accidents happen, even in the structured, pampering environment of a professionally-run salon or spa. How often have you asked yourself "What would I do if...?" What would you do if a client had a heart attack or suddenly stopped breathing? What should you do if your client is burned or breaks out in a strange rash during treatment? The Esthetician's Guide to Client Safety and Wellness is designed to offer practical, safety-based information and tips to decrease the possibility of infection, as well as accidents or injuries during treatment or service. An entire section is dedicated to cautions and contraindications relating to medications that can affect treatment choices, especially for clients dealing with health conditions. Considering the many inherent exposures - not only to the client but to those actually working in the spa, clinic and salon environment - the Estheticians Guide to Client Safety and Wellness is an essential tool and an invaluable resource for esthetic and cosmetology professionals.
Client safety and wellness are the focus of the guide forestheticians and cosmetologists.
