    • A.

      Threading

    • B.

      Electrolysis

    • C.

      Laser hair removal

    • D.

    In the method of permanent hair removal called electrolysis, hair is removed by means of:

    • A.

      Intense light

    • B.

      An electric current

    • C.

      Epilation

    • D.

      A laser beam

    Correct Answer
    B. An electric current
    Explanation
    Electrolysis is a method of permanent hair removal that involves the use of an electric current. During the process, a tiny needle is inserted into each hair follicle, and a low-level electric current is applied to destroy the hair root. This current causes a chemical reaction that damages the hair follicle, preventing future hair growth. Unlike other methods like intense light, epilation, or laser beam, electrolysis directly targets the hair follicles through the electric current, making it an effective and long-lasting solution for hair removal.

    In electrolysis, a needle-shaped electrode is used to destroy the:

    • A.

      Root of the hair

    • B.

      Sebacious gland

    • C.

      Suderiferous gland

    • D.

      Sweat pore

    Correct Answer
    A. Root of the hair
    Explanation
    Electrolysis is a method used to permanently remove hair by targeting the root of the hair follicle. By using a needle-shaped electrode, an electric current is applied to the hair follicle, which destroys the root of the hair. This prevents future hair growth from that follicle. The other options listed, such as sebaceous gland, sudoriferous gland, and sweat pore, are not directly targeted or affected by electrolysis.

    Intense light is used to destroy hair follicles in the permanent hair removal method called:

    • A.

      Threading

    • B.

      Photo-epilation

    • C.

      Electrolysis

    • D.

      Laser hair removal

    Correct Answer
    B. Photo-epilation
    Explanation
    Photo-epilation is a permanent hair removal method that uses intense light to destroy hair follicles. This process involves directing a concentrated beam of light onto the skin, which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. The absorbed light is then converted into heat, which damages the follicles and inhibits future hair growth. This method is effective for removing unwanted hair and is commonly used in professional settings. Threading, electrolysis, and laser hair removal are different methods of hair removal that do not involve the use of intense light.

    Photo-epilation can provide 50 to 60 percent clearance of hair in:

    • A.

      12 weeks

    • B.

      1 year

    • C.

      6 months

    • D.

      1 week

    Correct Answer
    A. 12 weeks
    Explanation
    Photo-epilation is a hair removal technique that uses light energy to target and destroy hair follicles. It is a gradual process, and multiple sessions are required to achieve desired results. The given answer, 12 weeks, indicates the time frame in which photo-epilation can provide 50 to 60 percent clearance of hair. This means that after 12 weeks of regular treatments, around half to three-fifths of the hair in the treated area will be permanently removed.

    The type of hair that responds best to laser hair removal treatment is:

    • A.

      Fine downy hair

    • B.

      Coarse, dark hair

    • C.

      Any light-colored hair

    • D.

      Fine blond hair

    Correct Answer
    B. Coarse, dark hair
    Explanation
    Coarse, dark hair responds best to laser hair removal treatment because the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicles. Coarse hair has more pigment and absorbs more energy from the laser, making it easier to destroy the hair follicle. Dark hair also contains more melanin, which further enhances the effectiveness of the laser treatment. On the other hand, fine downy hair, light-colored hair, and fine blond hair have less pigment and are less responsive to laser treatment.

    The hair ends are burned by shaving, making shaved hair feel:

    • A.

      Softer

    • B.

      Thicker

    • C.

      Thinner

    • D.

      Finer

    Correct Answer
    B. Thicker
    Explanation
    When hair is shaved, the blunt ends of the hair shaft are exposed, giving the appearance of thicker hair. The hair shaft is cut straight across, which creates a wider diameter at the end compared to the natural tapered end of unshaved hair. This can give the illusion of increased thickness. However, the actual thickness of the hair shaft itself remains the same.

    • D.

      Cleanse the eyebrows

    Correct Answer
    B. Contract the skin
    Explanation
    Astringent is applied after tweezing to contract the skin. Astringents are substances that cause the tissues to shrink or tighten, which helps to reduce inflammation and close the pores. By contracting the skin, astringents can also help to minimize redness and irritation that may occur after tweezing. This step is important in maintaining the shape of the eyebrows and ensuring a clean and polished look.

    • C.

      Dissolving it at skin level

    • D.

      Destroying the papilla

    Correct Answer
    C. Dissolving it at skin level
    Explanation
    A depilatory removes superfluous hair by dissolving it at the skin level. Depilatories are typically in the form of creams or lotions that contain chemicals that break down the protein structure of the hair, making it easier to wipe or wash away. This method does not involve pulling the hair out of the follicle, impairing the follicles, or destroying the papilla. Instead, it focuses on dissolving the hair at the surface of the skin, providing a temporary solution for hair removal.

    During the application time of a depilatory, the hair expands and the:

    • A.

      Disulfide bonds break

    • B.

      Texture changes

    • C.

      Polypeptide bonds break

    • D.

      Cuticle is stripped away

    Correct Answer
    A. Disulfide bonds break
    Explanation
    When a depilatory is applied to the hair, it causes the disulfide bonds within the hair shaft to break. Disulfide bonds are responsible for the hair's structure and strength. Breaking these bonds weakens the hair, making it easier to remove. This process also causes the texture of the hair to change, making it more pliable and easier to remove. Additionally, breaking the disulfide bonds may lead to the stripping away of the cuticle, the outer protective layer of the hair.

    It is recomended that clients return for waxing services every:

    • A.

      3 to 4 months

    • B.

      1 to 2 weeks

    • C.

      4 to 6 weeks

    • D.

      4 to 6 months

    Correct Answer
    C. 4 to 6 weeks
    Explanation
    Clients are recommended to return for waxing services every 4 to 6 weeks. This is because hair typically grows back within this timeframe, and returning for waxing within this period helps to maintain smooth and hair-free skin. Waiting longer than 6 weeks may result in more hair growth and a less effective waxing session, while returning sooner than 4 weeks may not allow enough time for new hair growth. Therefore, 4 to 6 weeks is the ideal timeframe for clients to schedule their waxing appointments.

    The hair should be at least 1/4 to 1/2 inches long to ensure an effective:

    • A.

      Tweezing

    • B.

      Photo-epilation

    • C.

      Waxing

    • D.

      Shave

    Correct Answer
    B. Photo-epilation
    Explanation
    Photo-epilation is a hair removal method that uses light energy to target and destroy hair follicles. In order for this method to be effective, the hair should be at least 1/4 to 1/2 inches long. This is because the light energy needs to be able to penetrate the hair shaft and reach the follicle in order to destroy it. If the hair is too short, the light energy may not be able to effectively target the follicle, leading to less effective hair removal.

    Before you apply wax to the client's skin, you should test it on:

    • A.

      Wax paper

    • B.

      Your wrist

    • C.

      Your fingertip

    • D.

      The client's wrist

    Correct Answer
    B. Your wrist
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to test the wax on your wrist before applying it to the client's skin. This is because the skin on the wrist is more sensitive and similar to the client's skin, allowing you to assess if the wax is too hot or if there is any adverse reaction before applying it to a larger area. Testing it on your own wrist also ensures that you are aware of the temperature and any potential discomfort that the client may experience.

    • D.

      In the direction of hair growth

    Correct Answer
    B. Agaisnt the direction of hair growth
    Explanation
    In a hot waxing treatment, the fabric strip should be removed against the direction of hair growth. This is because pulling the strip in the opposite direction helps to uproot the hair from its follicle, resulting in a more effective and thorough hair removal. Removing the strip slowly allows for better control and minimizes discomfort for the client.

    • C.

      Apply more wax over moles

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Wear disposable gloves
    Explanation
    When performing a waxing treatment, it is important to wear disposable gloves. This is necessary to maintain hygiene and prevent the spread of bacteria or infections. Gloves act as a barrier between the esthetician's hands and the client's skin, reducing the risk of cross-contamination. Additionally, gloves provide protection for the esthetician's hands from any potential irritants or allergens present in the wax or on the client's skin. Overall, wearing disposable gloves is a standard practice in the beauty industry to ensure safety and cleanliness during waxing treatments.

      Permament hair remover

    • B.

      Epilator

    • C.

      Cold wax

    • D.

      Depilatory

    Correct Answer
    B. Epilator
    Explanation
    An epilator is a device or substance used to remove hair from the root, which is exactly what the sugar-based paste used in sugaring does. Unlike waxing, which removes hair by adhering to both the hair and the skin, sugaring only sticks to the hair, making it less painful and irritating to the skin. Therefore, the sugar-based paste used in sugaring is considered an epilator rather than a cold wax or depilatory, which remove hair from the surface of the skin.

    • B.

      Emollient

    • C.

      Tonic lotion

    • D.

      Gommage

    Correct Answer
    C. Tonic lotion
    Explanation
    A tonic lotion is a facial product that helps restore the skin's natural pH after cleansing. Cleansing can disrupt the skin's pH balance, making it more acidic. Tonic lotions are formulated to neutralize the skin's pH and bring it back to its optimal level, which is slightly acidic. This helps to maintain the skin's barrier function and overall health. Treatment creams, emollients, and gommage are not specifically designed to restore the skin's pH after cleansing.

    • B.

      Alphahydroxyde acids

    • C.

      Aluminum chloride

    • D.

      Keratolytic enzymes

    Correct Answer
    D. Keratolytic enzymes
    Explanation
    Keratolytic enzymes are substances found in enzyme peels that accelerate the breakdown of keratin, the protein present in the skin. These enzymes work by breaking down the keratin, which helps in exfoliating the skin and removing dead skin cells. This process can improve the texture and appearance of the skin, making it smoother and more radiant. Salicylic acid, alphahydroxyde acids, and aluminum chloride are not keratolytic enzymes but are also commonly used in skincare products for their exfoliating and skin-renewing properties.

This process helps to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter skin underneath. Vegetable peels refers to the use of natural ingredients like fruits and vegetables to exfoliate the skin. Microdermabrasion is a more mechanical exfoliation method that uses a device to gently remove the outer layer of the skin. Powdered enzymes are exfoliants that contain enzymes to dissolve dead skin cells. Therefore, gommage is the correct answer as it specifically describes the exfoliation method mentioned in the question.

    A type of enzyme peel that stays soft during application rather than drying out to a crust uses:

    • A.

      Oatmeal granules

    • B.

      Plant-derived acids

    • C.

      A powdered enzyme

    • D.

      A cream solution

    Correct Answer
    C. A powdered enzyme
    Explanation
    A powdered enzyme is used in a type of enzyme peel that stays soft during application rather than drying out to a crust. This suggests that the powdered enzyme has properties that allow it to remain in a soft and pliable form when applied to the skin. The other options, such as oatmeal granules, plant-derived acids, and a cream solution, do not specifically mention the ability to stay soft during application. Therefore, the powdered enzyme is the most likely choice for this type of enzyme peel.

    A group of exfoliants called alphahydroxidy acids are derived largely from:

    • A.

      A beefy by-products

    • B.

      Gastric acids

    • C.

      Fruits

    • D.

      Quaternary compunds

    Correct Answer
    C. Fruits
    Explanation
    Alphahydroxy acids are exfoliants commonly used in skincare products to remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover. These acids are derived largely from fruits, such as citrus fruits (lemons, oranges), apples, grapes, and sugar cane. Fruits contain natural acids like citric acid, malic acid, and glycolic acid, which have exfoliating properties and help to improve the texture and appearance of the skin. Therefore, it is logical to conclude that alphahydroxy acids are derived from fruits.

    If a client doesn't first use an alphahydroxy product at ome for two weeks, an alphahydroxy exfoliation in the salon may:

    • A.

      Have no effect

    • B.

      Exfoliate too deeply

    • C.

      Cause discomfort

    • D.

      Cause an allergic reaction

    Correct Answer
    C. Cause discomfort
    Explanation
    If a client doesn't first use an alphahydroxy product at home for two weeks, an alphahydroxy exfoliation in the salon may cause discomfort. This is because alphahydroxy acids are chemical exfoliants that help remove dead skin cells and can cause mild irritation or stinging sensation, especially if the skin is not accustomed to it. Without prior use of alphahydroxy products at home, the client's skin may not be prepared for the exfoliation, leading to discomfort during the salon treatment.

This closure helps to enhance the effectiveness of the mask by allowing the active ingredients to penetrate deeply into the skin without any interference from the environment. Additionally, the closure also helps to lock in moisture and nutrients, keeping the skin hydrated and nourished.

    Correct Answer
    C. Have no treatment properties
    Explanation
    Paraffin masks have no treatment properties, meaning that they do not provide any specific benefits or effects on the skin. While they may get warmer as they set and contain ingredients like kaolin or silica, these characteristics do not contribute to any therapeutic or treatment effects. Additionally, paraffin masks do not absorb sebum, which is the oily substance produced by the skin. Therefore, the correct answer is that paraffin masks have no treatment properties.

    D. Modelage mask
    Explanation
    A modelage mask is a type of facial mask that provides both warming and cooling effects on the skin. This mask is typically made from a combination of ingredients such as clay, botanical extracts, and essential oils. When applied to the skin, the mask warms up, helping to open up the pores and promote better absorption of nutrients. As it dries, it cools down, tightening the skin and providing a refreshing sensation. The combination of warming and cooling effects makes the modelage mask a popular choice for those looking to improve their skin's texture and appearance.

    • B.

      Stimulating sebum production

    • C.

      Sealing moisture into the skin

    • D.

      Reducing sebum production

    Correct Answer
    D. Reducing sebum production
    Explanation
    Masks containing sulfur have a beneficial effect in reducing sebum production. Sebum is the oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin. Excessive sebum production can lead to oily skin, clogged pores, and acne. Sulfur has drying and exfoliating properties, which can help to regulate sebum production and reduce oiliness. By reducing sebum production, sulfur masks can help to balance the skin's oil levels and improve the appearance of oily skin.
