A day at the salon

Krislin Liiva talks about what sets Tiia Ilusalong apart from the rest.

 

I finished my training at CIDESCO, which was Estonia’s first private cosmetics school and have now been working as a beautician for four years. I love my work.

At Tiia Ilusalong we offer many different treatments and procedures like facials, depilation, massage, pedicures, manicures, and body care. I also perform all of these procedures. Our salon differs from the rest, as we offer curative pedicures and body sugaring, which are the most popular procedures in summertime. A curative pedicure is different from a regular pedicure because it helps fix various foot problems like ingrown nails, nail and foot fungus, corns, warts, heel cracks, etc.

 

Nail fungus is a very common problem these days and often people don’t realise they have fungus before the problem has taken over the entire nail. The faster you seek help for the fungus, the easier it is to take control of. Here’s how we can help: first we file and clean the nail. Our salon has the unique Fox laser, which cures nail fungus. A treatment consists of four visits over two to two and half months. The laser heats up the nail to the point where it kills the fungus. You can help the healing process at home by reducing your sugar and white flour intake, as these foods feed the fungus.

 

Hygiene is also important. You should disinfect your feet and shoes. If you visit a spa or a public pool, then you should certainly wear sandals. You can also use a curative polish during this time. Foot fungus is much easier to treat. You can use anti-fungal creams on your feet, make sure you dry your feet properly, change your towels often and wash all socks and sheets in at least 60C water.

 

Depilation is also popular in summer and at Tiia Ilusalong we use Alexandria body sugar, which is easy on the skin. It is one of the world’s cleanest and most allergen-free depilation sugars. Our salon offers the sugar waxing ball method, which is very hygienic. We use clean gloves and apply the wax in the same direction as the hair grows. This helps prevent the hair from breaking, as well as ingrown hairs. Hair also grows back more slowly.

Tiia Ilusalong differs from other nail care salons because they don’t cover up the problem, they fix it. The salon has been operating since 1997, and long running business and regular clients (both international and local) are proof of the quality service Tiia Ilusalong provides.
