Negative publicity is bad for everyone’s business. The media loves to sensationalize outbreaks and transmission of infections. We know that improperly cleaned and disinfected surfaces and tools can lead to adverse events, so it’s crucial to follow proper disinfection practices in the salon. This seminar will summarize common client infections and how they relate to disinfection, review best practices in cleaning and disinfection of surfaces and tools, emphasizing that the method of application used for the cleaning and disinfection process is paramount to providing safe foot care services, and discuss the importance of choosing an effective cleaning and disinfectant agent.

LCN IS EXCITED TO OFFER OUR BAREFOOT CERTIFICATION CLASS AT THE FOOT FORWARD SUMMIT!

Join hundreds 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
  • Application for Cosmetic Purpose
  • Application for Corrective Purpose
  • Proper Maintenance

You will leave this class knowing:

  • How to add $50-$125 in 15 minutes
  • Bootcamp style training on how to achieve application in that 15 minute timeframe
  • How to increase or develop your referral relationships with local podiatrists
  • New techniques specifically designed to create a natural looking prosthetic toenail

Attendees will receive a Barefoot Kit along with Certification.
