Plastic Surgery or A High Frequency Machine…I’ll go with the High Frequency Machine

The older I get the more issues I have with my skin and the more money I have to shell out to try and fix it. It is not just one problem at a time, it is multiple problems at once! From wrinkles, acne, lines, dark circles, drooping, large pores, it just never ends! I’m sure you have had many clients with the same issue, and there are only so many treatments you can perform on a client in a day. High Frequency units are the all-in-one machine for all of your clients’ skin problems.
High Frequency is used to kick-start the skin rejuvenation process. It enhances circulation, increase production of collagen and elastin, eliminate toxins and acne-causing bacteria, encourage lymphatic drainage, exfoliate dead skin cells, and assist with absorption of skin care products.
High Frequency current stimulation forces an infusion of oxygen-rich molecules into the skin, which cleanses, massages, stimulates blood flow, and dilates superficial blood vessels. Because of the increased blood flow, high frequency tones the skin (similar to muscle toning). Application of high frequency current promotes
a cleansing antibacterial action, and the skin is left feeling energized, rosy, firm, refreshed, and noticeably softer. The dilation of blood vessels pushes toxins away from the skin9s surface, and allows the skin cells to feast on increased nutrients and hydration.
How Does it Work?
With High Frequency skin treatment, a chemical reaction causes the emission of ozone into the air. Ozone is a form of oxygen that has germicidal properties and is extremely beneficial for treating seborrhea or acne skin. The more oxygen that surrounds the electrode, the more ozone is formed and the greater the effect. When the electrode is lifted away from the skin surface, more oxygen surrounds it, a more intense drying and healing action occurs.

High Frequency facial machines include glass electrodes which come in different shapes and sizes to treat various contours of the face and body. When applied to the surface of the skin, a mild electrical current passes through the neon or argon gas filled glass electrode causing it to emit a subtle glow. High Frequency electrodes produce either a neon orange or violet colored glow depending upon the inert gas that they are filled with. We have found that both colors produce equally effective results.
One Machine, endless Benefits!

Eco-fin. An Environment Friendly Alternative To Paraffin Treatments!

Want to know a great, healthy way to get soft skin, all while being friendly to the environment?

It contains no petroleum, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrances. Eco-friendly, people-friendly, and biodegradable. Eco-fin is a healthy and nourishing treatment that leaves your skin soft without harming the environment. It is a rich blend of palm, soy, jojoba, organic oils, shea butter, vitamin E and essential oils. Another great perk to this product: preparing and clean up are super easy!

Did I also mention they smell great?! Your client will love choosing from these amazing scents:

Happy: Raspberry-Grapefruit Blend

Escape: Peppermint Essence
Shangri-La: Jasmine-Sandlewood Blend

Reverie: Lavender-Vanilla Blend
Retreat: Coconut-Pineapple Blend
Be Well: Green Tea-Aloe Blend
Purity: Unscented

Instructions for an Eco-fin treatment:

  • Drop the selected Eco-Fin Cube into the prepared Eco-Sleeve.
  • Roll the sleeve over itself into a tidy roll.
  • *Note: For convenience, you can order extra Eco-Sleeves for Mitts and Eco-Sleeves for Booties and prepare several rolls ahead of time. They can be kept warm in your hot towel cabi, or you can warm the liner only in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds before inserting it into the sleeve. Use caution when using microwaves as they vary and may require less heating time. Overheating can melt the plastic liners.
  • If you don9t have a warmed sleeve already prepared, warm the liner only in the microwave for 30 seconds before inserting the Eco-Fin cube into the sleeve.
  • Unroll the Eco-Sleeve and slide it onto guest9s hand or foot. Help disperse the rich emulsion evenly by massaging over the hands or feet.
  • Place warm herbal or electric mitts/booties onto the hands or feet.
  • Remove mitts/booties and liners after 10 to 15 minutes and massage remaining emulsion into hands and forearms or feet and legs. Discard used liners and reuse sleeves/herbal mitts & booties.

Also, this is a great, low cost add-on for any spa/salon treatments you offer! Based on a hand treatment using 1 cube per hand, it’s less then $1.60 per treatment!

Step it Up with Pedicure Slippers!

Adding slippers to your pedicure can really enhance your spa service. Customers like to feel appreciated, plus everyone loves free stuff! I hate it when I go to get a Pedicure, and realize I am wearing socks and sneakers, and don’t have my flip flops with me. It’s a frightful sight thinking about having to put your feet back in your shoes after they’ve just been freshly painted. Gratising your clients disposable slippers is an easy and affordable way to ease their nail-smudging worries.

A favorite buy are the Encore Slip Resistant Foam Pedicure Thong Slippers with Cloth Reinforced Soles. The case includes 360 pairs, with each pair individually wrapped. They are disposable and sanitary. They come in a variety of 6 different mixed colors: White, Pink, Blue, Green, Black and Yellow. Customers will love the slippers, because they are comfortable and durable. There will be less time wasted having to repair pedicures for clients who prematurely put their shoes back on. These slippers can be worn out to the car! Another major benefit of these slippers (a benefit for both the client and the spa!) is that they are slip-resistant!

At only $0.33 a pair, they are very economical. All it takes is a little bit to go along way in pleasing your clients!

What Is In Your Manicure and Pedicure Bowls?

Variety is the key to keep customers happy and coming back. Adding a little extra something special to your manicure soak or pedicure soak can make a huge difference! Your client will feel extra pampered and luxurious by adding something as simple as gemstones. Just add the gemstones or stones to cover the bottom of your manicure or pedicure bowl.
There are such beautiful colored gemstones that not only offer a eye popping, look but some have healing properties or interesting characteristics.

For example, take the Green Aventurine Gemstone. Widely viewed as an all around “luck” stone, Aventurine is more specifically known for stimulating dreaming and helping those who use it find balance and a stronger personal identity. Green Aventurine is particularly revered as a stone that can ease anxiety and calm emotion, perhaps helping to whether stress and worries, helping you to keep a positive outlook.

Another great look to add to the manicure soak is beautiful glass manicure bowl. The gemstones shine through the glass bowl, looking beautiful and providing the client with a peaceful and serene setting. Who wouldn’t want to be pampered by such beauty!

    The Evolution of a Brush: From Bone Picks to Gemstones with the Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush!

    I’m too sexy for my brush…

    For as long as people have had hair, we have needed some way to tame the tangles, free the knots, and show off our own personal style. Hair brushes have been around for thousands of years, but thanks to evolution, they have transformed from being simple bone or shell picks, to more modern and ergonomic styling tools.

    For example, Pure Spa Direct recently added the Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush to our ever-expanding product selection. After reading the description of this brush, I couldn’t resist and had to purchase one instantly. The Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush has crushed Tourmaline gemstones infused within the barrel of the brush that emit negative ions to SMOOTH HAIR, ADD SHINE and ELIMINATE FRIZZ! Yes, this brush is infused with GEMSTONES!!!

    As an end-user, I have noticed visible results to the appearance of my hair when I use this brush during my blow outs. As professionals, having a brush that works miracles to bring structure to a client’s unruly mop is a necessity! That is why I recommend that every hair salon ditches their antique brushes and adds the Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush to their salon stations and retail offerings.
    Have you had the chance to try this amazing brush yet?
