Ways Facial Treatment Devices Improve Value of Service
by GeGe Greene, L.E.
A facial treatment can bring to mind thoughts of relaxation. Yes, one imagines just laying back without a care in the world, looking forward to refreshed, dewy – glowing skin!!! That “Calgon Take Me Awayyyyyyyyy” feeling!
There are various components that go into creating the special feeling of a great facial treatment. Great skin care products can help provide a good treatment, but, good may not be enough to keep clients coming back! You need something that can give your facial treatment an extra boost to make your in-person treatments more valuable.
Today’s clients are very savvy. They are researching skin care treatments and products on-line and they are expressing their expectations! The informed consumer of the new millennium is forcing the skin care industry to improve the options for a professional skin care treatment. Sometimes you have to pull out a few tricks of the trade and do just a little bit more than has been done in the past to improve the results of your treatments.
Devices Can Improve Your Facial Treatment
“Devices” can be the extra boost that take your facial treatment to the next level. In addition to devices – chemical exfoliation can also achieve an even more impressive wow factor. Options are unlimited!!!
MicroChanneling devices, Nano MicroChanneling devices, High Frequency devices, Radio Frequency devices, LED Light Therapy devices, Microdermabrasion devices can all improve the overall efficacy of your treatments. Dermaplaning, Chemical Peels, Detox, are also great enhancements to any treatment or service!! All of these can add to the experience of your facial treatment and keep clients intrigued, encouraging them to keep coming back!
Long gone are the days of Cleanse, Tone, Serums, Moisturizer and Sunscreens as the main staple of the facial treatment. A rub here, a rub there, maybe some steam in between and Voila! That will be $100 please!
Nope, that’s a thing of the past!!
The aid of devices in a facial treatment can offer a long list of benefits to the skin. They can even out texture, brighten, improve luminosity, and improve the overall glow. Please note, do not be afraid to use multiple devices in a single treatment.
Facial treatments that incorporate devices or multiple devices – will wow your clients and keep them coming back!
