Re: [IP] Acrylic Nails



Ginny,

There are a number of hospital grade disinfectant liquids
that can sterilize the tools used to apply your nails just
as effectively, maybe more, as heat.  Heat is not always
practical due to expense to the salon, especially small
salons and/or independent Nail Technicians, and also the
fact that some of the tools are partially made of plastics
and/or acrylics which melt in the high heat.  These tools,
however, can be put in hospital grade disinfectant with
excellent results.  This type of disinfectant is accepted
by the governing boards in all 50 states of the US. 
Barbasol+ is the most widely used disinfectant.  It will
kill HIV, TB, Hepatitis and many others.

If you have a good Nail Technician, you do not need to
worry about any special diabetic procedures.  It is only if
she cuts you when pushing back cuticles or filing or
something that can let in germs and cause infection.  A
good Nail Technician doesn't do this if she/he is properly
trained.

If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me
and I will try to give you an answer.
