8 step marketing strategy
Les Nouvelles Esthetiques & Spa    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

A thorough discussion on how the professional relationship will work, and a marketing strategy that includes the practice philosophy, practice objectives, competitive advantages, marketing program design and tracking systems need to be put into place.

Webninar: Cell Deficiency and the Benefit of the Mushroom

SDSS    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Presented by Courtney Sotack, Sponsored by Dermastart
Free radical exposure not only leads to the depletion of the skin's structural integrity, but contributes to the cellular breakdown that leads to the visible signs of aging. Free Radical exposure often results in sensitive, raw, red, inflamed skin that prevents the professional aesthetician from preforming the corrective treatments needed to improve the skins appearance. The healing ability of the mushroom has been documented for ages, but through a specialized harvesting and preserving process, the bodies of mushrooms are now proving to be detoxifying and restorative to the skin on a cellular level. Traditions of healing are now redefined and mushrooms are making an impact on the aesthetic industry.
