Increase Your Clients Skin Care Results With LED Light Therapy

LED Light therapy is becoming increasingly popular in the skin care industry and can greatly increase your revenue for your business. LED Light therapy is non-invasive and can effectively treat various skin concerns like acne, sun damage, scars, and lines/wrinkles. Each light color will target a specific skin concern and can be beneficial for your clients whether used independently or in combination with other services like microdermabrasion, facial peels, lasers, and fillers. A light therapy treatment can take less than 15 minutes to perform and would be a perfect suggested add-on to your facial services!

Red Light: Photo Anti-Aging
Increases fibroblast growth factor in macrophage cells. Red light exposure results in 5x the increase in collagen production, stimulating intracellular activity and new skin cell growth. The perfect adjunct to any anti-aging treatment.

Amber Light: Scar Healing
Increases lymphatic flow evacuating waste and stimulating cellular growth. Amber light is absorbed by body fluids in lymph and blood circulatory systems and boosts cellular activity with 5x the growth rate of new skin and muscle tissue. Excellent post-surgery treatment.

Green Light: Hyperpigmentation
Increases lymphatic flow, evacuates waste and stimulates cellular growth. Green light treats general skin problems by decreasing melanin production and reducing pigmentation. Lessens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Blue Light: Acne
Propionibacterium responds to blue light at 470nm and has been shown to effectively reduce non-inflammatory and inflammatory acne lesions.

Nail Trend: Caviar Manicures, Doug Gets One!

MIA Caviar beads, just after a few hours.

Here at Pure Spa, we are are always looking into new trends in the Salon, Nail, Massage and Day Spa markets. We are constantly seeking out new lines that can offer your business services and merchandise to help keep you on trend with what clients are looking for. Whether it’s an awesome new pedicure, facial or Massage, we know that staying current is an important aspect to retaining and attracting clients. So we were very intrigued to learn about the Caviar Manicure craze this summer and were considering bringing it on board to Pure Spa.

When our Caviar nail beads showed up for beta testing we ran into a glitch. All of our usual test subjects just had Shellac manicures, so the only person with a clean nail was Doug Dema in our Marketing department…poor Doug, I had to send an apology note to his wife. We were all so eager to try out the process, Doug allowed me to test out a few of his nails to evaluate the application process and the quality of the wear.

So the Caviar Bead Manicure process begins like any other manicure:

1) Clean and prep nail
2) Base coat
3) 2 Polish coats – one nail at a time
4) Now sprinkle on Caviar beads while nail by nail while polish is wet.
5) Pat beads carefully into nail, taking care to make sure the edges are fully covered.
6) After 10-15 drying (we did not use a lamp or dryer), Apply a clear top coat.

Doug Does Caviar –
And Not Very Well.

Without the top coat, the beads are not going to stay on for more than a few hours.

After applying a thick top coat, it took about 30-40 minutes for the nail to fully dry and the beads to feel “locked in” – again, we did not use a lamp or dryer.

After all this drying time, the manicure and the Caviar beads did hold up through several hand washings and Doug’s daily routine of banging stuff around, but after a few hours, beads starting falling off.

So what was the verdict? This is a cute trend but we felt it was a service that was too long to perform in light of it’s temporary results. It is on trend for the younger age groups, and with the time involved in doing it well, and doing it right – the price point for this manicure would need to be in the $45 range, which we feel may be too much. And at that price point, clients will want a manicure that lasts longer than a few days.

Alternatively, I have heard from some salons that are just adding the Caviar to one nail, like the ring finger. That sounds a bit more practical.

Shellac and Gelish manicures are still the number one trend of choice for our salon and spa shoppers!

Sweaty Summer Smells Got Your Down?

Ewww… that smell
Can you smell that smell?

I walked over to my co-workers desk the other day and it smelled bad. I know he has exceptional hygiene, but it’s 108 degrees outside… freshness is nearly impossible on summer days like this. I figured my cubicle must smell pretty funky too, so I grabbed my Glade Tough Odors Solutions Air Sanitizing Spray to knock out the scents of summer.

With Oust technology, this hand little aerosol kills odor-causing airborne bacteria. It eliminates even the toughest pet, food, bathroom, mold and mildew odors while leaving a refreshing scent so the room smells fresh and clean.

I think this is great for spas and salons to keep around because tough odors pop up – and can leave a lasting impression. Be prepared.

Check out Pure Spa for a large selection of odor solutions.
