As a professional Electrologist, I have always upheld the strictest levels of sterilization, disinfection, sanitation and cleanliness. You will see below, a list of the steps I typically follow to ensure practitioner and client safety:
High-level sterilization of implements/tools/tweezers using PREempt CS 20 (chemical sterilant and high level disinfectant) as approved by Fraser Health.
Single-use, disposable probes for each client, properly disposed of after use into a sharps container.
Sterilizing & disinfecting probe holder tips between clients.
Gloves worn and changed for each client.
Disinfecting all frequently-touched surfaces (treatment bed, probe holder, electrolysis machine, microscope, door handles, debit/credit card machines).
Linens are changed for each client. They are laundered on high-heat cycles and washed with bleach.
Treatment room & waiting room are frequently disinfected with professional products.
Frequent hand washing.
Washroom is well stocked with liquid soap, paper towels, hot and cold running water and is cleaned regularly.
Appointments are booked with a minimum of 15 minutes of clean-up time in between each session. This gives me an opportunity to make sure the room is properly cleaned and disinfected for the next client.
Cancellation fees are always waived when due to illness. Limiting the spread of germs is always appreciated.
Store all clean linens and extra supplies in a closed cabinet or other storage area.
Upon arrival, clients should wait outside or in their vehicle until notified by text or phone that it is safe to enter. I need time to ensure that the client before you has left & that I have cleaned the space so that you may to enter safely. I will open & close all entry & exit doors for you to limit exposure as much as possible. Clients should refrain from waiting in the usual waiting area.
Medical masks will be worn for each client.
Clients are also asked to wear a face covering when entering the building, during their treatment & until they leave our facility. If you do not have one, I will happily provide you with a medical mask for $2. For some facial treatments, wearing a mask is just not possible, but we ask that you still wear one before & after your treatment to limit the spread of germs as much as possible.
Clients will be requested to immediately wash/sanitize their hands upon arrival and before beginning any treatment. Hand sanitizer will be available in the waiting room as you enter as well as in the treatment room & washroom.
I will wash my hands after handling cash (though I am asking for only contactless payments currently), before & after breaks, as well as at the end of my shift.
High-touch items will be disinfected before & after each client. These include equipment, door knobs, dispensers, handles on machines and devices, all buttons, dials or tools, light switches, counter tops, entry & exit door handles, washrooms, treatment bed, phones and debit/credit card machine.
I will properly dispose of all of the days waste at the end of each day when leaving.
Clearly visible signs will be posted promoting proper hand washing techniques.
I am requesting that all payments be done via Tap using my Square payment machine.
Clients should not bring anyone with them to their appointment. We need to minimize the number of people coming through our treatment space.
Consultations will now be done by video conferencing.
Clients are asked to limit the personal possessions that they bring with them to their appointments & to keep all items with them on the treatment bed during their treatment.
All pre-screening questions must be completed and addressed prior to the client arriving for a scheduled appointment.
Clients are asked to refrain from bringing outside food and beverages into our location.
Pens will not be exchanged between technician and client.
Washrooms will be cleaned and sanitized after every use.
Practitioner will will check the temperature of all clients using a contactless forehead thermometer as they enter the building. One of the primary symptoms consistent with COVID-19 is an elevated body temperature of above 38˚C (100.4˚F).
