Injecting Profits into Spas – Call the Doctor to Give Clients a Lift

Injectables offer spa clients more dramatic
and youthful results.

There comes a time in any client’s skincare regime when they have exhausted the routine of facials, microderm packages, masks and creams in their quest to stay youthful – they want more. Many small spa businesses and estheticians find themselves trying to decide what to add to their menu as a next level of treatment to address more aggressive signs of aging for these types of clients. Some will opt for purchasing or leasing IPL machines, lasers, or various types of equipment in hopes of helping clients reach that next level of rejuvenation. But with these types of units costing $10,000 – $40,000 (and results varying client to client), the investment can sometimes go bust. Not to mention, if your competitor down the street gets the same unit, sales for these services can quickly go flat.

“Injectable Fillers for age conscious clients compliment
skin care services spas already offer.” -Dr. Joel Lamm
(Photo: 2 days post cheek injections, Botox & Juvaderm XC)

Recently, I took my mom to see my dermatologist, Dr. Joel Lamm, for his signature “Liquid Face Lift”. My 64 year-old working mom sees Dr. Lamm to “work his magic,” lifting, plumping, sculpting and filling her badly aged face with Botox and Juvederm XC. Not only is this “Liquid Face Lift” a serious confidence booster, she feels it is important not to look her age in this tumultuous job market (but that is a whole other blog). She, like many other spa clients, had exhausted her efforts of anti-aging facials, peels and microderm treatments and was ready for a serious boost of beauty.

While there with my mom, Dr. Lamm told me in addition to his dermatology practice on Long Island, he has begun seeing clients at a popular day spa in Tribeca. He visits once a month to see the spa’s existing and new clients who want Botox, Juvederm, Restylane or “the works” – aka the Liquid Lift my mom gets. He explained this mutually beneficial arrangement with the spa allows him to expand his clientele, while the spa gets to offer top-notch injectable services that clients want.

This arrangement makes sense. When a client is ready for a dramatic and long-lasting boost of beauty – why should they leave the spa and go seek out a dermatologist, why lose that business? This type of working relationship benefits all parties.

  • Spa retains clients and keeps offerings current
  • Spa attracts new clients interested in fillers – but wary of Physician’s offices
  • Dermatologist and Spa share revenue from service
  • Dermatologist sees clients once a month – doesn’t pay rent for a second location
  • Clients get to have treatment in a comfortable environment they trust and know
  • Clients get to look drastically better, and still visit the spa for facials and treatments in between injections.
  • One-stop beauty for spa and esthetic clients

So how should you find a reputable dermatologist that will be a good fit for your business? Check with Allergan, http://www.botoxcosmetic.com/FAD.aspx. They have a website that allows you to locate a certified Physician who performs injectables. Contact them and start a dialog! My advice, stick with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Sorry, but I would not take my mom to see a podiatrist that is certified to inject Botox! Dr. Lamm is located in Hicksville, NY – http://www.lammdermatology.com/ and specializes in creating natural looking (but astounding) effects with injectables.

So Steamy! Facial Steamers are an Estheticians Best Friend

Help your clients achieve clear, healthy skin with our exceptional selection of quality facial steamer. Facial steamers moisten and cleanse skin. Steam causes pores to expand and stimulates blood circulation. Adjustable extension arms allow a broader facial steam. The ozone variety of steam is also capable of increasing cell oxygenation. Herb baskets and essential oil inserts allow for amazing aromatherapy benefits. There are mini steamers, cool mist steamers, dual steamers… the choices are amazing.

Most suppliers offer just a few facial steamer choices, but Pure Spa Direct is different… we have a massive selection of over 100 – with a wide variety of features and functions in a wide range of price points to fit your needs — from the noob just starting out to seasoned professionals at elite spa.

Many estheticians consider the facial steamer the most important piece of equipment in the esthetics industry. It is used as part of facial treatments, and is frequently used with oxygen products.

Warm, humid mist has several benefits including:

  • Softens dead cells on the surface of the skin so they can be exfoliated more easily.
  • Aids in opening pores so they can be properly cleansed.
  • Penetrates deep into the pores to soften blackheads and deposits of grease, makeup, and dirt so that the debris can be easily removed.
  • Causes blood vessels to expand, increasing blood circulation

ACID & It’s Many Benefits!

Acid can be found in many places all around us. Of course you have the acid in fruit we eat every day – like citric acid, and we all wear our acid washed jeans, but more importantly acid is also commonly found in the “Spa World,” because of the many benefits it has for our skin!

Want an acid-washed face? Sounds scary to me. Just the thought of having “ACID” applied to my skin makes me cringe. However, in living and breathing in the spa world, I have actually grown to understand how powerful and effective certain types of acid can be in treating different skin flaws and imperfections.

There are 3 types of acids that are most commonly used via Facial Chemical Peels to enhance the appearance of the skin: Glycolic, Salicylic and Lactic Acids.

Each having their own purpose and benefit to the skin:

  • Glycolic Acid Peel– Exfoliates the skin, improves texture and tone, & is a great for anti-aging treatment.
  • Salicylic Wash Improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and scarring.
  • Lactic Acid Peel Friendly acid recommended for peels on first timers, or people with sensitive skin.
