Join dozens of professional nail technicians who have taken the LCN Barefoot Certification Class and offer this highly sought service. You will leave this class with an acute awareness of who your potential Barefoot clients can be, the confidence for proper application, and the integrity knowing you are performing a service to your clients which will not only bring you $$$ in your pedicure chair, but change the way your clients looks at their feet! This is a game changer!

LCN Barefoot is a true breakthrough in cosmetic toenail correction made possible by the development of modern corrective materials. Barefoot is highly effective for the treatment of toenails right in your own salon or spa. As the beauty industry’s #1 pedicure restoration gel, Barefoot is a means to restore the toenail partially or completely while providing an attractive cosmetic result.

As the beauty industry’s only light-curing, one-component pedicure resin, Barefoot is a means to restore the toenail partially or completely while providing an attractive cosmetic result. Barefoot contains the ingredient Piroctone Olimine, a proven anti-mycotic substance that is time-released to keep working, even after the product is cured. Due to the flexibility of Barefoot, the product adjusts to the movements of the nails and feet, thus feeling completely comfortable and natural. Available in five shades: clear, pink, opal, pastel, and our camouflage colour cool pink. Barefoot can be used to match any nail type and provide coverage for even the most unsightly nails.

Our hands-on training includes:

•         Proper Diagnosis of suitable candidates

•         Proper Prep and Sanitization

This intensive class looks beyond the “buff and polish” pedicure – and enters the “Grey Zone”, the place in foot care between cosmetic and medical. This class is taught by Vicki Malo, Vice President of Education, Footlogix and President of NASP.

Over the years, we acquire vast amounts of experience and knowledge. This becomes the foundation for our day-to-day work in our respective foot care and pedicure practices. With rapidly changing lifestyle trends affecting the skin and nails of our clients’ feet, our current knowledge may be insufficient to resolve, adequately address or correctly identify their issues. More diabetics, seniors and immuno-compromised clients are choosing to have pedicures. Clients are prepared to pay for knowledgeable professionals, and safe pedicures.

In this class you will learn how to educate your clients in preventative skin care management by understanding this rarely addressed area in pedicuring. Become more pro-active instead of re-active and learn how to provide safe and effective pedicure services.

If you are a professional pedicurist, this class will help distinguish you from the rest of the industry and catapult your business ahead of your competitors – taking your pedicure to the next level of excellence.

Class Includes:

  • The 10 Step Footlogix Pedicure Demonstration
  • Understanding the three R’s: Recognize, Recommend and Refer
  • How to use the Footlogix Pedicure Consultation form and Home Care Pad to help you to identify your clients concerns and increase your retail sales

All attendees who register for this class will receive a Footlogix Education Certificate.
