Spas prepare for Black Friday and Cyber Monday
Black Friday and Cyber Monday can be stressful — the race from store to store, the fights between consumers and the absence of a desired gift. But now, the spa industry is adding its own, relaxing touch to the occasion, with many spas and salons offering Black Friday and Cyber Monday specials and discounts in honor of the annual savings — and to provide a break from the hustle. According to the ISPA 2013 U.S. Spa Industry Study, 51 percent of spas provide a discount or promotion to their social media audience, giving consumers a perk to liking their favorite spa's page.
Doctors warn of medical spa laser treatments
Cosmetic laser treatments now are being performed at med spas and some physicians say this can be dangerous to a patient's health.
Med spas offer cosmetic laser procedures, which may be performed by someone who is not a doctor.
More than three-quarters of current lawsuits involving laser procedures are against nondoctors.
Physicians say while it is legal in most states to perform laser procedures without a medical degree at med spas, it's not always safe.
As a cosmetologist and instructor, I am honored to be with the NCEA. As a professional, I recommend becoming certified. After 30 years in the industry, I can still get excited about continuing education, my job and helping others.

A guide to LinkedIn company pages
By Mayur Kisani
LinkedIn now has a user base of more than 200 million members, making it the world's largest professional network.
