Bulk Sample Jars To Increase Retail Sales!

I get excited about new retail items both for business to utilize but also for their clients.

We sell a ton of sample jars every day which is why I'm super excited about the new bulk packs we just added.

Fun colors, bulk packs to save you money and a great way for you to get your client's to fall in love with your retail lines. You work hard to provide amazing services and spent time picking out retail lines that your clients should be familiar with (make sure to check out our newest addition that is one of the best on the market today, Alchimie Forever). A great way to get client's interested is to offer a small sample of a product that aligns with their specific skin issues and goals.  It also makes an easier transition to market the products in a non aggressive

How Microdermabrasion Will Change Your Business

The hottest treatment in spas right now must be microdermabrasion, because these units have been flying out of our warehouse this week. Our spa clients are gearing up for the New Year, and what better way to do so than by updating your equipment to offer your client the best options available on the market?

What is Microdermabrasion?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Microdermabrasion treatments are minimally invasive treatments that use an instrument to gently sand the skin, removing the thick, uneven outer layer.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion Treatments
  • Improve dermal discoloration
  • Remove blackheads
  • Exfoliation, leaving a refreshed appearance
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce or eliminate large pores
  • Treat acne
How Should You Offer Microdermabrasion?
Spas see incredible success in selling Microdermabrasion treatments in series. Since this is a treatment that offers cumulative improvement over repeated treatments, there is a huge profit opportunity for spas to sell these treatments in series of 6 or more. A typical protocol calls for six treatments, 10-14 days apart, giving you an excellent opportunity to get your clients through your door more often. If they are happy with their microderm treatments, it will be easier to upsell your regular clients through add-ons and retail while they are in your location. 

I'm Sold - Which Microdermabrasion Unit Should I Buy?
Pure Spa Direct offers a huge range of microdermabrasion units, but the following are by far our most popular!

What Is In Your Manicure and Pedicure Bowls?

Variety is the key to keep customers happy and coming back.  Adding a little extra something special to your manicure soak or pedicure soak can make a huge difference!  Your client will feel extra pampered and luxurious by adding something as simple as gemstones. Just add the gemstones or stones to cover the bottom of your manicure or pedicure bowl.  
There are such beautiful colored gemstones that not only offer a eye popping, look but some have healing properties or interesting characteristics.  

For example, take the Green Aventurine Gemstone. Widely viewed as an all around "luck" stone, Aventurine is more specifically known for stimulating dreaming and helping those who use it find balance and a stronger personal identity. Green Aventurine is particularly revered as a stone that can ease anxiety and calm emotion, perhaps helping to whether stress and worries, helping you to keep a positive outlook.

Another great look to add to the manicure soak is beautiful glass manicure bowl.  The gemstones shine through the glass bowl, looking beautiful and providing the client with a peaceful and serene setting. Who wouldn't want to be pampered by such beauty!

Beat Those Winter Blues With Massage!

With the holiday stresses (there are too many to list!), colder weather or if you're in a warmer climate, the days becoming dark so early....people tend to feel more run down. If you're in a snowy climate add in the aches and pains from shoveling!

Massage therapy is a sure fire way to combat the winter blues no matter where you are. The relaxing effect is a sure fire stress reliever  especially if you're utilizing relaxation or calming lotions or oils. Add in some calming essential oils, cushy table warmers (the Deluxe Table Warmer Samadhi-Pro by EarthLite is a best seller!), herbal eye pads and relaxing sounds like a water feature and your clients will be in pure bliss!

For those clients with extra aches and pains from shoveling or running around shopping and going to holiday parties, have some muscle relief items like biofreeze or tiger balm on hand. Great to use on sore spots at the end of the treatment but also a great retail item for use in between treatments.

Almost everyone experiences some type of winter stress, be sure to advertise how you can help!
