At Star Nails Spa we pledge to follow industry-leading hygienic standards and to use the highest level of sterilization and sanitation practices to insure your safety and peace of mind. Our commitment to your health and well-being goes “above and beyond”.
HIGHEST LEVEL OF STERILIZATION
According to public health experts, bacterial, fungal and viral infections can occur from using unsanitary nail implements, especially in salons, where the same implements are used on many people. Most states allow chemical sterilizing as long as the implements are immersed in the solution for at least 10 minutes between customers, however, autoclaving (heat sterilization) is the best method.
We use the AUTOCLAVE method in our salon to insure your peace of mind. Autoclaves use pressure to raise the boiling point of water to a temperature that kills bacteria, fungi, and salon-borne infections. This method is the highest level of sterilization available, and is employed in the medical field, but it is still relatively new in the nail salon industry due to its high cost.
The Center for Disease Control issued a warning on whirlpool foot baths due to their susceptibility to breeding bacteria. Typical large whirlpool spa-chairs have been shown to harbor bacteria in their water filtration systems, which use recycled water.
Our pipeless pedicure chairs have no pipes or air channels that collects residue that breeds harmful bacteria. Jets can be removed by hand for easy and thorough cleaning. After every service we disinfect our sinks and the surrounding areas thoroughly with disinfectants. Furthermore, throughout the day, we clean, disinfect and sanitize sinks and other sensitive parts of our facility with medical grade solutions to kill bacteria and prevent the spread of germs.
