From facials to micro-dermabrasion, the NZ Beauty Association can provide you with the appropriate and correct information about each beauty therapy procedure, the ins and outs, the do’s and don’ts, so you can work out exactly if the treatment is appropriate for you.
Questions you should ask your beauty therapist before proceeding with a treatment include:
- Are they a member of the NZ Association of Registered Beauty Professionals – our member’s value professionalism, wellbeing and total privacy for all their clients.
- What the procedure is best for – whether it is relieving back tension through a Swedish massage or hair removal with waxing.
- The best outcomes you can achieve –for example, electrolysis works best on small, localised areas or waxing should be undertaken every four to six weeks.
- Precautions, if any, you may need to be aware of and the likelihood of an allergic reaction.
- The ingredients used in any of the treatments – some of our treatments use natural products like the essential oils in aromatherapy, and some use medical grade elements as the active ingredient such as botox.
- Who is the best qualified person to administer each procedure – dermal fillers and botox should be carried out by a doctor or nurse. Most of our procedures require a registered beauty therapist. The NZ Beauty Association membership ensures their qualifications for your peace of mind.
- The areas of the body that the procedure should be used on – some procedures work best on certain areas of the body than others, such as diathermy should be used on the face only.
