How the day spa scene evolved from more than just a rub or facial
Remember when you went to a day spa for a facial and maybe a massage or both or added a body scrub, like they do at Burk Williams, Ole Henrikson, etc. Well, today, the whole day spa scene has evolved and you no longer get just any facial but a full-rejuvenating, machine-operated treatment.
Microneedling in the esthetic practice
Though the name initially may be off-putting to clients unfamiliar with the treatment, microneedling is quickly becoming one of the most popular procedures for skin resurfacing. Also commonly referred to as collagen induction therapy, it is proving highly valuable in its ability to improve the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the overall appearance of the skin.
"Recently a representative/esthetician noted my expertise and inquired as to my background. She travels all over the country and meets many estheticians with varying knowledge of our field.

Using choice to motivate and differentiate
By Savanna Flakes
