Benefits and FAQ’s Of Manicures, Pedicures, Acrylics & Nail Treatments
We already know that Manicures & Pedicures make our nails look fantastic. What you may not know is that a professional nail treatment actually has long-term and health benefits as well!
A professional manicure includes a thorough cleaning and lotions designed to exfoliate your skin. Any grime will be removed, as will dead skin cells, keeping your hands smooth and reducing any appearance of wrinkles. A professional pedicure will also exfoliate your skin, as well as remove any callouses on the bottom of your feet. This not only makes your feet more attractive, it also helps you distribute your weight more evenly across your feet, which can reduce leg and back pain after standing for long periods.
In addition to exfoliating, moisturizers and cuticle treatments are massaged into the skin in a professional mani-pedi. This massage action is not only incredibly relaxing, it also helps to improve blood circulation to your extremities. This can reduce pain and help your body distribute heat during cold months.
Fungi often grow on toe nails when your feet are exposed to excess moisture. Often, it takes a few weeks for the infection to become noticeable. However, a professional manicurist will be able to identify a fungal infection even in its early stages, when it is most easily treated. Getting regular pedicures is actually a great way to maintain the health of your toes.
A mani-pedi is a great way to relax and be pampered. After a stressful day or week, these can completely relieve your stress, and the benefits of having gorgeous nails can last for weeks. A great nail color is a perfect accessory to any outfit, so you can cross painting your nails off your list of things to do.
Both the physical and mental health benefits of getting a manicure and pedicure are incredible. Your feet and hands will both look and feel great, your stress will go down, and your circulation will increase. The whole procedure takes relatively little time, so contact the Health and Style Institute today to schedule your manicure and pedicure.
Frequently asked questions on Shellac:
- What is Shellac/Gel Polish?
- Shellac is the brand name for a new, nail product created by Creative Nail Design. It is a hybrid, meaning half nail polish, half gel. The product is thin and strong enough to be applied similarly to nail polish, but it is cured in a way that gives it great flexibility and durability. It also has the incredible shine associated only with gel nails.
- Who is Shellac best suited for?
- Shellac is for people who want to maintain natural nails. The formulation looks as good from day 1 to day 14, but does not appear to damage nail beds.
- Who is Shellac least suited for?
- Shellac is not for those who are looking to lengthen their nails. You cannot use Shellac to create a longer nail. Also, Shellac isn’t for clients with extremely damaged nail beds, split or peeling nails. It is best to get on a corrective program with your manicurist before thinking about Shellac. If your nail is peeling off, it will take Shellac with it.
- How is Shellac different from the traditional polish manicure?
- Typical nail polish dries by evaporation, which means your manicure is not cured until 2-3 hours after your service. Think about it – most of your manicure time is spent waiting for polish to dry. But Shellac is cured by UV light, and within minutes. Your nails are completely dry by the time your manicure is over, and strong enough to withstand accidental knocks. It acts like a plasticized coating, suitable as a long lasting polish.
- How is a Shellac service different from traditional nail enhancements (fake nails)?
- Drills are never used or needed with Shellac, and removal does not leave nails dry, thin or possibly torn.
- Can you apply Shellac at home?
- No, Shellac can only be applied by a licensed, trained manicurist. Improper tools or techniques will give a less than desirable result with Shellac.
- Are the UV rays from the lamp dangerous?
- I began researching this back in February. Standard use of the product (every 2 – 3 weeks) is minimal, but there is no real data. Use sunscreen if concerned. (I recommend Neutrogena pure & free baby, spf 60+ or Renee Rouleau Daily Protection SPF 30). Wash off or wear out after service. Sunscreen for your hands is a good thing anyway.
- Can you take Shellac off at home?
- You can. It requires the use of 100% acetone. Removal at home can be done; proper removal is only 10 minutes overall. However, removal at the salon very minimally increases the time and may be less of an inconvenience for you.
- Wait, what is wrong with artificial nails?
- On the whole, nothing. But as a manicurist and proponent of natural and organics, there is nothing is more exciting for me than seeing natural nails on a client. While I love the creativity made possible through gel nails or liquid & powder, I think artificial nails are often used to mask a nail problem (peeling, splitting, flexible) when a focused regiment can improve the condition. As a veteran nail technician, the most rewarding part of my job is identifying clients’ troublespots, and working out a program to bring the hands, feet and nails to the point of perfection. Knowing Shellac can withstand even the rigors of salon life, the focus for the everyday woman can be more on care and maintenance of skin and nails – leaving perfect polish in the hands of Shellac.
