The TLT PTU Hand and Arm are suitable for learners working at all levels:
The TLT PTU Hand and Arm can be used to practise massage techniques and also can be used as the foundation for a range of hand and nail treatments.
The nail bed of the TLT PTU Finger can be used for the full manicure service. However, when perfecting any nail painting, nail art, nail polish, gel polish or artificial nail techniques on the TLT PTU fingers, a false nail tip MUST always be applied to the nail bed, acetone and nail polish remover MUST not be used directly onto the PTU Finger as this will cause damage.
The TLT PTU Fingers should not be overextended as this may cause damage as with a live model.
The TLT PTU Hand is excellent for learners working towards a qualification in nail technology. The TLT PTU Finger is the perfect aid for the full range of tips using gel, wraps, liquid and powder. The flexibility of the TLT PTU Fingers will encourage the learner to develop the confident holding techniques required, whilst applying the products, prior to working on a live model.
The nail industry is a very lucrative market. Whilst clients demand high quality application they also have limited time availability. Therefore it is essential that all nail treatment services are carried out within a commercially acceptable time. It is this aspect of the treatment that most learners need to develop - skills and speed. The TLT PTU Hand is the perfect solution.
When using the TLT unique UV Mapping tools the TLT PTU Hand can be used for hand reflexology.
The UV light will illuminate where the learners hands are, thus ensuring your learners are accurately pinpointing the correct zones and pressure points.
Tilly and the entire range of TLT PTU are life-like and should be handled with great care. TLT advise that the TLT PTU are stored in the specifically designed TLT PTU Storage bag.
Use of Products and Equipment:
The TLT PTUs should be handled in the same way that you would handle a live model; with the utmost care. Whilst their primary use is for learners to perfect their treatment application, gain confidence and learn new techniques, the TLT PTU also encourage the learner to apply the same level of client dignity as they would a live model.
Use of Products and Equipment:
We recognise an expensive salon product is wasted on Tilly and the TLT PTU, as unlike a live model the TLT PTU are not organic and do not have an allergenic skin. Therefore changes to the skin's condition post treatment will not be evident, as you would expect to see on a live model, and you will obviously not get any client feedback as to the effects of the medium used.
The TLT PTU can be cleansed using any of the cleansing products that would normally be acceptable for use on human skin. For demonstration and practise purposes exfoliating scrubs and masks can be used directly onto the TLT PTU surface without causing damage, simple warm soapy water will also effective to cleanse the TLT PTU. We recommend the use of Anti-bacterial wipes to reduce the risk of cross infection prior to use.
Use of Electrical Equipment
The TLT PTU Electrolysis Probing Mask and Underarm and Bikini Probing Pad are excellent tools for the learner to perfect their probing techniques. There is no benefit in the current being used and therefore we advise the current is switched OFF whilst working with the TLT PTU Probing materials.
