Step #3: Sterilization (not required)

  • Sterilization is rarely required or necessary in the professional beauty industry.
  • Sterilization is the complete destruction of all microbial life.
  • A small number of states require some sterilization in the field or esthetics (know the rules of your state).
  • Sterilization is most frequently done with an autoclave that uses heat and pressure to destroy microbes.
