Organizer Adviser: Taking Control of the Treatment Room

Nobody likes a cluttered and unorganized workstation, especially clients. Although everything inside of a spa may be clean, the clutter and lack of organization alludes to an unkept and unsanitary treatment room. Not only does having an unorganized spa or treatment room make clients feel uncomfortable, but it also reflects poorly on the skin care professional. This is not appealing to clients, especially when they are trying to destress and relax. There is nothing soothing about a tower of dirty bowls in the sink. The client’s experience is everything. It can truly make or break a skin professional’s business.

Powder Power: The Benefits of Using Actrol Powder

Actrol powder is a magical, multitasking powder absorbs excess oil without over drying the skin, which makes it a phenomenal asset to any and every skin care professionals’ collection.

Actrol powder is described as an antibacterial powder specifically formulated to reduce excess sebaceous oil flow, whilst assisting in the clearing of acne. This special product absorbs oil without dehydrating the skin and is suitable for sensitive, oily, and acne prone skin.

The beauty of it lies in its versatility. The antibiotic powder is composed of vitamin C crystals, helps to control excessive oil flow, and while also healing and clearing any infection or acne condition. Skin care professionals can utilize it for wound healing, as a translucent finishing powder, and to naturally extract my blemishes. For acne clients, dust a light layer over their makeup or sunscreen to absorb excess oil and provide antibacterial properties. Clients can use the powder over and under their makeup. When used on open blemishes, actrol works to draw out puss naturally without the use of extracting tools. Actrol powder is a great for all skin types, as well as, sensitive and rosacea skin because of its anti-inflammatory function that significantly reduces the appearance of redness and rosacea.

With its incredible healing properties and ability to heal acne at its core actrol can become a staple product used by skin care professionals to treat all sorts of acne and skin conditions.

Nurturing Clients During the Crisis

Nurturing client relationships is more important now than ever due to the  COVID-19 crisis. To maintain these relationships, skin care professionals must find a meaningful and unique way to foster these connections and keep their clients captivated. This is easier said than done but do not worry, there are new ways to connect to clients virtually. The million-dollar question every aesthetician is asking is, How can we ensure our client’s continued progress when we cannot physically treat them in the spa?

 

The number one thing aestheticians need to be concerned about during this time away from their clients is making sure they are not falling off the wagon and picking up bad skin care habits. During these hard times, it may be difficult to sell to clients due to the fear of being pushy or insensitive.  This mindset should not stop a skin care professional from servicing clients to their full ability. If clients are not purchasing products from the spa,  rest assured, they are getting it somewhere else. If skin care professionals are not giving their professional recommendations to clients, then they are doing them a disservice and leading them to a third-party seller such as Amazon. The sales of skin care on Amazon is six times higher than usual due to COVID-19. Clients are still spending money on luxury items, such as skin care, because it appeals to their emotions and makes them feel good. As most skin care professionals already know, skin care is a feel-good service, and luckily everyone is trying to find something to make them happy and spark joy during this stressful time.

 

Another impactful practice a skin care professional can utilize during their time away from work is to educate clients and help them instill good skin care habits from home. This is the perfect time to hone in on one’s expertise and teach clients about all of the products and treatments the spa offers. There are so many ways to utilize social media to stay connected with clients and keep them captivated. Consider conducting a fun Q&A skin care quiz on Instagram Stories or creating a live video to interact with clients and bring brand awareness.

 

Fostering client relations during this time is essential and can create a stronger bond. Skin care professionals should not hesitate to check in or reach out to their clients. Showing clients they are cared about more than just as a client speaks volumes. The most important thing to do as skin care providers is to make clients feel loved and cared for during this time of uncertainty.

How to Effectively Rebook Clients

If you are not rebooking each client after their service you are not only doing yourself a disservice, but your client as well. I often hear other providers saying they feel uncomfortable or pushy when asking clients if they’d like to rebook for the following month. Most providers assume if the client wants to rebook that they will do so themselves, this is not always the case. Our clients rely on us for our professional opinion and expertise. It is our obligation as their skin care provider to create a treatment plan and pathway for them to reach their goal. If you are not rebooking your client after each appointment, I can promise you they are thinking, you don’t want them or value them as a client or that you flat out just don’t care. You don’t know what to do next or they think you don’t have a pressing need to continue treatment.

 

REBOOKING CLIENTS

When it comes to rebooking clients, there are several effective practices I use. During the client consultation, I ask my client what it is that they dislike the most about their skin. I then create a detailed treatment pathway or what I like to call my plan of action to help them obtain their skin goals. I always discuss my plan of action, so that my client is aware of my intentions from our very first encounter and rescheduling after each appointment is a no brainer.

 

Another effective practice I use to increase the likelihood of my client rescheduling is talking about my game plan for their next treatment during their service. This is a wonderful way to paint a picture of the next treatment in your client’s head and get them motivated. This is personally my favorite technique to getting clients to rebook. Not only will talking about next month’s service during their current treatment entice them to rebook, but it also gives you an opportunity to educate them on the benefits of it.

 

Finally, my most effective tip for rebooking clients is to tell them – don’t ask. I do this every single time I rebook a client. I never ask them if they would like to rebook for next month or give them the option to reschedule with me. I simply say, “I’m going to book you four weeks out for your next treatment, what day(s) work best for you typically?” I have yet to have someone tell me no. Yes, I know, this takes a lot of confidence. but it speaks volumes to your client when you know what you want to do with their skin and act. Don’t forget that you are in charge – you are the professional.

 

FOLLOW UP

 When it comes to following up with clients, I always send out “thank you” e-mails 48 hours after their scheduled appointment. Sending out a simple “thank you” e-mail is an easy way to show your clients you appreciate them and casually remind them to rebook with you next month. I will also reach out to my clients who have received more invasive treatments or require more attention either 48 hours or two weeks after their treatments (depending on what type of treatment they had done). Following up with your clients is imperative to a healthy client relationship and it increases client retention. This also shows them that you truly care for them and value them as a client. There are many talented and skilled skin care professionals in this industry, but what can make you stand out is your unmatched client care and interpersonal skills. Not everyone has the personality to be able to deal with clients effectively and build strong interpersonal relationships. I personally follow up with my acne bootcamp clients bi-weekly to make sure everything is going well with their homecare and to check in on their skin’s progress. I truly believe following up with clients increases their desire to rebook and reschedule with me time and time again.

 

EDUCATION

Another way to increase your client’s desire to rebook is by educating them. Education is the foundation of a successful client and provider relationship. I firmly believe the more your clients know and understand about their skin care products and treatments, the more willing and likely they are to do it. I educate my clients on every treatment I perform on them and every single product they go home with.

 

The most important tip to successfully rescheduling and rebooking clients is to educate and communicate with them, set goals, and create a plan of action. Be sure your clients are thoroughly aware of your treatment plan and are fully educated on the all of the services and products you recommend for them. Remember to always discuss their next service during their treatment and to rebook them before they leave. Most importantly, always follow up with your clients and make sure they know you care about them.
