Effective LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is a noninvasive anti-aging approach that works by emitting energy-producing packets of light deep into the skin's layers to stimulate collagen and elastin production and destroy acne-causing bacteria. 

Led light therapy is great for anyone who wants to improve the overall appearance of their skin. It is safe and effective for all skin types.

Lightfusion™ is designed to lie directly against the skin. Shorter distance between device and skin means less diffraction of light, thus optimizing the amount of light reaching target cells. This leads to shorter treatment times while maintaining proper therapeutic dose levels - extremely important for add-on or combination therapies. The unique design of the Lightfusion™ light modules allows direct treatment to key areas of the face as well as the lips, neck and décolleté. The Lightfusion™ device comes with 20 treatments :



With Lightfusion™ there is no need to invest thousands in costly equipment. Lightfusion™ has been designed to be a profitable solution that is simple to use yet delivers the optimum experience and results. Minimal investment and a proven business model mean that you can realize the benefits of light therapy, returning a profit to your business in a matter of weeks rather than months or years. 


Lightfusion™ Results:



  • Enhanced Elasticity
  • Improved Hydration
  • Fine-Line Reduction
  • Improves Uneven Skin Tone & Color
  • Helps Promote Collagen Activity

A Dynamic Clearing Duo

Help your client fight acne with this easy add-on service.

Use the Clearing Ampoule by Rosa Graf!

This ampoule is used for the treatment of blemished skin, which tends to form comedones, papulae, and pimples. The clearing concentrate should be used directly after thorough cleansing or after deep cleaning. It contains lactic acid, which has a keratolytic effect, cleansing cucumber extract, and urea.

The active ingredients can develop its greatest effect when the concentrate is used prior to the appropriate mask. Apply first half under the mask.

Then use Acne Modeling Mask by Martinni!

This treatment gives an immediate cooling effect, calms inflammation, heals blemishes, prevents acne formation, and minimizes enlarged pores. Regulates excessive oil secretion, eliminates impurities, without stripping the skin of natural oils, and leaves skin clean and clear.

Then finish the other half of the ampoule before using massage cream and SPF!

Pro Tip: To boost results even more, add a quick high-frequency treatment! Application of high-frequency current promotes a cleansing antibacterial action, and the skin is left feeling energized, rosy, firm, refreshed, and noticeably softer.

It's Not Just Slime! The Beauty Benefits of Algae

Algae is commonly seen as that annoying, gross slime that we try to remove from our pools each year. However, did you know that tons of beauty products are actually loaded with it ? But waiiit!.. before you go running to your spa pantry to impulsively throw away all of your products, let's take a look at the benefits this seemingly gross sludge actually has to offer! According to an article I read on it, there are plenty. Since beach season is on the horizon, you might want to consider adding an algae face mask treatment to your spa! It's a great seasonal treatment your clients will love.

What are the beautifying benefits of algae? Check them out below!



Anti-aging
Due to its high protein and fatty acid content, algae can help boost collagen production which keeps the skin elastic and firm - all characteristics of youth, which can help in anti-aging. We have a great Seaweed Algae Peel Off Mask by Pour Elle Labs which can be an effective product to use during an algae facial treatment at your spa.



Hydrating

Because algae is a plant and water-based by nature, its components can help to moisturize and even purify the skin. This can also reduce the appearance of fine lines an wrinkles because of its strong hydrating properties.



Anti-bacterial

Research has found that blue-green algae has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, which makes it effective in treating your clients who are prone to acne, eczema, and even psoriasis! To get started on your algae facial treatments, you might want to consider purchasing our Warm Clay and Algae Masque Kit by Amber!

Micro Needling---Not As Scary As It Looks

When I first saw the Micro Needle Roller Therapy System, I must admit my first thought was, "ouch". Literally tiny needles on a roller with a handle for someone to roll across my face? Sounds like an ancient form of punishment.

Luckily for me, and other clients, it's not scary at all. In fact, this little thing is pretty awesome.




Here's how it works in a very small nutshell:
-The steel micro-points release toxins from the skin, triggers collagen production, and also helps products penetrate into the skin further resulting in greater effectiveness.

Here are just a few of the issues it helps with:
  •  Scars (of all colors)
  •  Brown Spots
  •  Facial Discoloration
  •  Deep Lines & Wrinkles
  •  Great for Wrinkles Around the Mouth (smoker's lip)
  •  Cellulite
  •  Stretch Marks
  •  Skin Firmness - Airbrushed Appearance
You can read much more about how it works here.

It is available in two different length needles, the shorter one can be retailed to your clients for at home use in combination with the services you provide. The longer needle roller is for professional use since it penetrates deeper into the skin.

I recently was reading an article about a woman interested in this service but could not find one single practitioner in her area....that seems outrageous to me. Are you missing out on clients searching for  this collagen producing treatment? It's definitely worth looking into!
