Anti Aging…Photo Finish!

I read an article yesterday where a spa market research company compiled information relating to client trends, likes and desires. Continuing is the trend of non-surgical and non-invasive treatments to help turn back the wrinkles of time.

These non surgical treatments are well worth the initial investments due to how quickly many of the results can be seen, as well as the potential profits by selling the treatment in packages.

While there are many different types of non-surgical options out there for use in facials, one that I see many people overlooking is IPL – aka intense pulse laser or photo rejuvenation. This treatment allows you to address such concerns as some pigmentation issues, fine lines, wrinkles, acne, scarring and cellulite. I can name someone I know who experiences one or more of these concerns and none have ever heard of IPL- this again is where as a technician or owner, educating your clients is key. Aside from an increased profit from them trying new techniques (with great results), the loyalty increases when they know you care about their concerns and aren’t just trying to sell them facials or random add-ons.

Ok so, the actual IPL units…here are a few with some great information in the description for you to get acquainted with.

LED Light Therapy Photo Rejuvination by SkinMate
Spa Masters Photon Skin Care Device

This is the Grand Daddy of IPL…..you won’t find a better more complete unit from a leader in the industry.
Trios™ IPL Advanced Phototherapy System

If you are looking to set yourself apart from your competitors, this is a great way to add a treatment in to amaze your clients with above average results.

Relax Clients and Increase Profits with No Scream Cream

No matter how many times I get waxed, it never gets easier. A common belief is that the more consistently one waxes, the less painful it will become. Not so for myself nor countless other women I know. Getting my arms waxed seems to be the most excruciating. Before every pull, my body tenses, my stomach clenches, I brace for impact (or retract!), and probably end up experiencing more pain than I would have if I was relaxed.

Enter the RELAX & WAX No Scream Cream / 1 oz. One of the best ways to endear yourself to your clients is to make their depilatory experience as comfortable as possible and the No Scream Cream can help you achieve that. Formulated with the local anesthetic Benzocaine, this product will actually numb the skin that is being waxed. Simply apply the cream to the treatment area about 30-45 minutes before the depilatory service.
A great way to introduce this product to your clients
Yeeeoooowch!
is to advise that they arrive at their service about 30 minutes early and then let them use it for the first time as gratis. Once they see and feel how well the No Scream Cream works, you can offer it as retail upon checkout! Clients will appreciate that you care about their experience and thus reward with greater profits.
