Our app is not just a mediocre collection of signs and signals for contraindications to a treatment, but a road map to conditions that are commonly seen and sometimes ignored in daily practice in our field of work.
We are also on a mission to make sure the material, its precision and actuality is updated on a regular basis.
Back to the basics:
Contraindication is a specific situation in which the treatment should not be carried out due to harm and danger to a person’s health.
There are two types of contraindication:
Total – a treatment cannot be performed
Relative – a treatment cannot be performed on affected area only
Map to Salon Compass Contraindications
We have created a pedestrian light (RED, YELLOW and GREEN)
YELLOW COLOUR - Relative Contraindication- Be cautious and do not perform the treatment over the affected area. This is a localised contraindication
RED COLOUR - Total Contraindication of the treatment
GREEN COLOUR - Not contraindicated, you can perform the treatment safely.
Key features this app include:
Contraindications by treatments
Medications & Side Effects
Medications That Cause Skin Sensitivity
Contra - actions
