Paraffin dip is a treatment for the symptoms of joint and muscle conditions, such as arthritis, that consists of melted mineral wax derived from petroleum applied to a body area. Paraffin dips can be especially helpful in relieving the pain and stiffness of arthritis involving the small joints of the hands or feet when used as a small bath. The hands and feet are repeatedly dipped into the melted, warm wax and the wax allowed to cool and harden around the sore joints. The paraffin is then removed by peeling off.

Whenever possible, it is advisable to wait about 2-4 hours. This allows the nail glue to cure completely.

A fungus is a living organism that thrives in dark, damp environments. Fungal infections are very common in nails on both fingers and toes, but toenails are more likely to be affected by the fungus since it is attracted to dark and damp environments more typical of the foot than the hand. Affected nails have a yellowish or brownish discoloration and may thicken or become brittle over time.

A beautiful, well-groomed nail is an important part of your overall look. Attractive nails and hands enhance your appearance, whether you spend your days in a kitchen or in a boardroom. A basic manicure takes between 25-35 minutes. Artificial nail services, such as tips, acrylics and gels, average about 45 minutes. The cost is quite reasonable, and the results are well worth it.

A basic manicure or pedicure will last one to two weeks, depending on your lifestyle and the type of service you've had.
If, for example, you work in the garden without gloves, your manicure probably won't last long. Artificial nail services, such as acrylics, tips, wraps and gels maintain their fresh appearance much longer.

Artificial nail applications should be maintained every two weeks. It is important to have regular fills because if the acrylic lifts away from the natural nail, moisture and bacteria can accumulate between them.
A professional nail technician can spot problem areas better than someone with an untrained eye.
