What is the most important machine used in esthetics?

the steamer

7

How far is the steamer kept from the face when using steam during a facial?

12-18 inches

8

What do mineral deposits look like on the steamer?

white or yellow crusty film on the heating element

9

What can the vacuum machine be used in place of during a facial?

massage (but not recommended, as the massage portion of the facial is the most relaxing for the client)

10

How should the vacuum machine be used on client's skin?

moisten or dampen skin and use slow horizontal movements

11

The two most common type of electrodes used with the galvanic machine

flat and roller

What type of solution can be used for desincrustation during anaphoresis?

baking soda and water or a -pH product

13

What effect does cataphoresis have on the skin?

calming and soothing

14

How does high frequency benefit the skin?

oxygenates, relaxation, increases cell metabolism, oxygenates, gives a warm and relaxing sensation

What color is the large mushroom electrode of the high frequency machine?

violet

16

Is rubber a good insulator or a good conductor?

Good insulator

17

Name some items that use direct current
