Question 1: I know some medications that cause a heightened UV skin sensitivity. Is this the case when doing nails, as well?
Question 2: I have several clients with Pterygium that extends onto the nail plate. Can it be pushed back gently? I don’t want to cause any harm.
Question 3: What is the best way to pick an effective salon disinfectant? Can’t I just look at a disinfectant label to see how many kinds of microbes it can kill and chose the one that kills the most? What about bleach? Is it effective?
Question 4: I have a long-term client with no issues apart from some surface peeling. Now suddenly, the nails plates are badly stained, after wearing a dark red color. I’m sure I’m properly curing with the correct UV nail lamp and I use a thin layer of base coat.
Question 5: My initial UV gel training was poor and I overexposed myself before I knew it was a problem. Now, despite taking plenty of precautions I have severe reactions. I am very careful to use nitrile gloves and protect my hands, but sadly it’s not working.
