Advanced Rejuvenanting Concepts

>> STEP 1 – Keep it Clean
Waxing removes hair from the root and may create an open opportunity for a bacterial infection to enter the skin. Always keep your hands clean and cleanse the clients skin with Pre Wax Skin Cleanser which helps destroy harmful bacteria from the skin surface to maintain a sanitary treatment.

>> STEP 2 – Always Check Your Wax Temperature
Checking the wax for temperature and consistency is necessary in order to prevent skin damage or discomfort. Hard wax should not be completely liquid and temperature should be tested on the back of your hand or forearm before applying to the clients skin.

>> STEP 3 – Working Around the Bikini Bend
Apply Brilliance in a smooth even stroke, while paying attention to the edges of the wax. Smooth edges will have a clean pull, whereas rough or thin edges may not pull evenly, thus leaving bits of hard wax to remove after the pull. This takes up more time and wax, which is a waste of money.

>> STEP 4 – Support is Important
Support of the skin while waxing prevents unwanted bruising or tearing of the skin. Both of these nasty results to poor support make the waxing experience painful and undesirable for the client. Using the wide “V” support with hand and thumb to press the skin taut and give a good clean pull.

>> STEP 5 – Pubic Application
Using the wide “V” again, gently push the skin away from the crease of the leg for a smooth even application of Brilliance. Once the wax sets, pull evenly and close to the skin surface to remove the unwanted hair.

>> STEP 6 – Mirror the Other Side
Now that one side of the bikini is completed perform the same technique to the opposite side keeping the lines even. Again, using the “V” support hand and smooth even application of Brilliance with clean edges. On this side of the bikini area, the client has a couple of skin tags, or acrochordons. These are small growths of skin that develop on many individuals. It is important NOT to wax over them. Waxing over a skin tag may tear the tag from the skin surface that may cause discomfort or pain and bleeding. Apply the wax around the skin tag and tweeze away any unwanted hair that may be near it or was missed.

>> STEP 7 – Clean Up the Top
Now that the edges of the pubic area and the bend are clean and smooth, focus on the top pubic line. As you may have noticed with this model, the bikini clean up was simple because her hair is nicely contained with little spread growth. Some women may have pubic hair growth that can spread for inches out the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Always consult with your client on how far they would like the waxing to be done. In many cases, suggesting a full leg and bikini wax will be the best-looking option.

>> STEP 8 – Smooth and Protect
After Waxing Oil with natural Australian tea tree softens the skin surface, provides natural antibacterial protection and removes any sticky residue that may be left behind from the wax. Always advise your client to keep her skin smooth and dry for 24 to 48 hours after waxing to help prevent any bacterial infection that could develop. Keeping the skin dry includes refraining from workout, sex, or working outdoors. Sweat creates moisture and warmth, which may be a breeding ground for many bacteria – including staph.

    Upselling and add-ons – a challenging subject to talk about even in the best of times. But here we are in the middle of an economic crisis, so you must be asking yourself how we could possibly consider this a reasonable topic when you are just happy you are able to sustain your clientele. Many of you are probably thinking there is no way you would jeopardize that relationship by asking the client to spend more money. All of which are perfectly reasonable thoughts and questions. However, I will ask you to put them in a box briefly, clear your mind, and be open to consideration for just a moment.

    Let me give you an example of an effective suggestion that happens millions of times, everyday, all around the world. You go to your favorite restaurant; you sit down, and look over the menu. Your server comes to the table and takes your order, you tell him what you would like and he confirms your order then says, “Would you like a salad with that tonight, or can I interest you in a glass of wine?” A perfectly harmless question, that was neither painful nor offensive. At worst you say “No, thank you.” At best, he just enhanced your dining experience, increased your bill, and ultimately his tip. Job well done!

  • Creating the Ideal Retail Mix - December 2008 Creating the Ideal Retail Mix - December 2008
    by Melinda Minton

    Selling retail is an essential part of a well run spa. This is true not only because the additional revenue is so crucial to a spa's bottom line, but also because prescriptive home care is the necessary second step to the professional care given to a client in the spa. While mastering the retail sale can be difficult from a team or individual perspective, there are methods for making your spa’s retail routine hum.

     

     

    Your Spa's Style

    Oftentimes spas try to sell a bit of everything in an attempt to accommodate everyone. This can be a fatal error. The more fragmented your retail mix the more clients and staff will be confused. There must be a driving force behind your spa philosophy. Are you primarily a spa focused in on medical skin care, contouring services, water therapies, or all organic non-ablative therapies? Before you can determine the best retail mix for your spa, you really need to dig deep and understand your theme, focus, and primary therapeutic offerings. Moreover, remember that if you can’t get the product on them in the treatment room—there is a much smaller chance that the client will be taking the product home with them for further use when not at the spa. Integrating the treatment experience with the retail experience is crucial. When determining your retail mix, be cognizant of your client. Do you primarily offer clinical services or is your treatment mix somewhat more “fluffy” or gift-oriented?

  • Deal or No Deal Deal or No Deal

    When Sarah Hughes skated off with the gold medal, she pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Olympic history. Her surprisingly simple secret? “I didn’t skate for a gold medal. I went out and had a great time.”

    Athletes say it all the time: “I just went out there and had fun.” And, admittedly, they do look like they’re having a great time.

    Fortunately, fun isn’t the sole province of superstar athletes. It can work for the rest of us in the skin care industry, too. The link between having fun and business success has been proven in countless studies. When we’re having fun on the job, we are more creative and more productive.

     

  • Sugar... Not Just for Coffee Anymore Sugar... Not Just for Coffee Anymore

    by Lina Kennedy

    A couple of decades ago, offering cream and sugar for anything other than coffee or tea would have sounded quite ridiculous! But in today’s realm of aesthetics and cosmetics promoting coffee and chocolate to soothe even the jitteriest skin, or offering sugar as a real hair removal solution to an age-old problem is very realistic. And as post treatment, applying a good trans-dermal cream to hydrate and moisturize the skin is simply a great, soothing and natural way to complete your sugaring service.

    Jan Marini - August 2010: A Legend in Aesthetics
    Jan Marinin

     

    Those who know Jan Marini refer to her as a visionary. While Jan might agree in principle, she sees this characterization as both a strength and a weakness. She envies those who are able to savor the moment. Where others view life in snapshots that capture real time, Jan sees broad borderless landscapes and endless possibilities. She does not see a product, she sees a business and in that same instance her mind is flooded with the business plan and all the accompanying details. Even when she is not envisioning empires, she is never satisfied with the status quo.
    Given her background, perhaps this is an understandable if not necessary survival tool. Jan’s mother, Florence, was a single mom of three boys in an era when divorce carried a major stigma. Florence remarried and unexpectedly gave birth to Jan late in life. The family struggled to live a very meager existence. Her father died when she was eight years old and the family was thrust into poverty. Florence worked only menial jobs and food was often scarce. It was no wonder that Jan viewed her world not as it was, but as it might be, and that she softened the bleak reality by envisioning a larger and more optimistic scenario brimming with potential. Because of her early circumstances, Jan is adamant that in order to succeed you must be tenacious, doggedly determined, and completely focused on the ultimate goal.
    Jan describes herself as a product researcher. “Back in the early days I was considered a product ingredient expert. I lectured to medical professionals, skin care professionals, and consumers about how ingredients really performed and what they could realistically expect to provide.” She also did talk radio and T.V., because as she puts it, “consumers love to hear about ingredients and whether their products really work. It is a popular topic that lends itself to talk shows.”
