    Which type of light rays are used in a salon to heat and relax the skin?

    • A.

      A. Alpha

    • B.

      B. Gamma

    • C.

    When using a galvanic current machine, in order for ionization or iontophoresis to work properly, the cream or lotion applied on the face must be:

    • A.

      A. Acidic

    • B.

      B. Organic

    • C.

    When using a facial vaporizer during a facial treatment, the vapor should be set approximately how many inches from the skin?

    • A.

      8

    • B.

      12

    • C.

      16

    The correct answer is 16. When using a facial vaporizer during a facial treatment, it is recommended to set the vapor approximately 16 inches from the skin. This distance allows the steam to effectively penetrate the skin and open up the pores, promoting better absorption of skincare products and improving the overall effectiveness of the treatment. Setting the vaporizer too close may cause discomfort or even burn the skin, while setting it too far may reduce the effectiveness of the steam. Therefore, 16 inches is the optimal distance for a facial vaporizer during a treatment.

    Wax masks are generally beneficial to dehydrated skin because they help to lock in moisture and provide intense hydration. Dehydrated skin lacks moisture and can feel tight and dry. Wax masks create a barrier on the skin, preventing moisture loss and allowing the skin to retain hydration. This helps to improve the appearance of dryness and plump up the skin, leaving it feeling moisturized and nourished.

    Explanation
    During a facial procedure, it is important to begin the application of contents at the client's neck. This is because the neck is often neglected but is an important part of the facial area. By starting at the neck, it ensures that the contents are evenly distributed and applied to the entire facial region. Additionally, starting at the neck allows for a smooth transition from the neck to the face, creating a seamless and natural appearance.
