Even Better

Over the years, the various aspects of the beauty and skin care business have completely evolved into their own entities, and hair removal leads that pack. Schools and states alike have created licensing requirements and education that are specific to hair removal practices, such as waxing, laser, and the long-forgotten electrolysis.

Every form of business related to hair removal has done the same. There are now product manufacturers, distributors, spas, salons, and clinics dedicated solely to hair removal products and services. The unique part of this niche of our profession is that it continues to evolve in and of itself –  ever changing new products for pre-, post-, and removal, new applicators, new equipment, and new techniques. All things that allow for continued growth of a service business. What was once a focus on removing hair from the legs, bikini area, and face has evolved into every inch of the body including nostrils, ears, and custom designed bikini areas for one and all

This month’s issue will serve as a hair removal bible for any hair removal expert. Take the time to explore each page and keep yourself open to new offerings of products. What makes one different from another or different from what you currently use? Where does the product come from and what is the level of both customer service and equational support? Dive into new ways of doing what you are currently doing. You may find yourself surprised that your finely tuned skills can get even better – making your business even better.

Members Medical

Members Medical is a results-oriented medical spa located in the tranquil Tarzana area of Los Angeles, California on Ventura Boulevard. Not believing in a one size fits all approach when it comes to health and aesthetics, their staff consists of highly trained nurses and aestheticians who provide thorough consultations to form individualized treatment plans, and they only work with research-backed lasers, injectables, and treatments. They pride themselves on having a mix of treatments committed to both health and beauty, ensuring clients glow inside and out. Their clients love being able to receive all their desired treatments in one trusted place. 

How long have you been a licensed nurse practitioner, and what pushed you to open you own medical spa?

I became a registered nurse in 2017 and a licensed family nurse practitioner in early 2023. I decided to run my own medical spa to improve upon all the gaps and flaws in patient care I noticed elsewhere while working in the aesthetics field.

Sarah Herbst

A licensed aesthetician, Herbest is also the founder and CEO of Sugar Bar Spas.

What is your educational background, and how do you continue your education in the industry?

I am a licensed aesthetician, and I am currently working to finish my communications degree at Ohio University online. It may take me five extra years with two kids, two dogs, and three businesses, but time will pass anyways! I recently took a series of facial massage courses, and I am taking my fifteenth chemical peel course next month. I also just brought on two new machines to both of my locations. Our training with those inspired me to learn more about the tools available beyond the art of the basic facial. I never want to stop learning!

How long have you been practicing, and why did you choose this field?

I have been licensed since 2010. When I was 19, I worked at Sephora and fell in love with putting makeup on all different types of women, talking to them about their problems or successes, and celebrating or crying with them. I knew I wanted to do something in the beauty industry for the rest of my life. It was the best way I could find to connect with people, and I was good at it. When I started doing Brazilians, I realized my true gift was making people feel comfortable in uncomfortable situations – that is what I teach my staff to do. When I see my long-time employees do and say things that I would to make clients feel comfortable, my heart is full. Amanda, Michelle, and Kelly are amazing and they put their hearts into their jobs every day.
