PROTOCOLS AND PROCEDURES

Your Health and Safety is Our Priority

null

At Nakota MediSpa, the health and well-being of both our guests and the Ottawa community is our upmost priority.

We are taking recommendations from both the Canadian federal and provincial authorities very seriously, and once they deem it is safe for us to re-open, we will be adhering to the following protocols to create a safe environment for our customers.

Continuation of Our Existing Infection Control Protocols:

null

Sterilization of all equipment & surfaces between clients

The use of both gloves & mask by our technician

Changing of linens between clients

Use of our Air Purification System that utilizes UVA Light and Catalyst, and Carbon Clean 16® Filter.

What our Air Purification System means for you?

null

This means that the air in our spa goes through the air purification and filtration system every 10 minutes, therefore minimizing the ability of viruses to linger in the air.

UVA LIGHT AND CATALYST: An ultraviolet lamp activated by a titanium-dioxide-coated catalyst breaks down odors and VOCs(volatile organic compounds) through a contamination destruction process called photocatalytic oxidation.  For viruses it means that the UVA light changes the DNA composition of all organism that pass through the system making them harmless.

CARBON CLEAN 16® FILTER (MERV 16-rated): Filters with activated, carbon-coated fibers captures contaminants as small as .01 micron**, removing them from circulation
