The Moment of Truth: Skin Analysis

Skin goals... we all have them! Whoever your client is, and no matter what brought them to you, you want to ensure they are happy with their results... right?

How are you educating your clients? The consultation is so important! Before an esthetician even touches a client, they already have an idea of your skin type. By sitting down and talking about a clients skin goals, you are learning how you can help them. Everybody has different goals, and the experience is completely individual!

We have some helpful tools that will elevate your consultation, and show your clients the benefits of their facial.

1) Use a Wood's Lamp! My pick is the Wood's Lamp by Equipro.

A Wood's lamp is essentially a handheld black light, for your skin! It shows aspects of the skin that are not visible to the naked eye. Woods Lamps help gives a clearer view of what is happening. It will show oily skin, dead skin, sun damage, congested pores, dry skin, and other skin conditions.

Pro Tip: Use the woods lamp before and after a client's first microdermabrasion treatment, to show the difference just one treatment makes immediately. Then offer a discounted package for clients trying this service for the first time.

2) Use the Bio-Therapeutic BT-Analyze / Digital Skin Moisture Analyzer. This little tool is a powerhouse!

It uses advanced technology to calculate the moisture content levels of the skin. This device is used in multiple zones of the face to clearly define the needs of each area. Each reading is saved and displayed on the intelligent LCD screen so that it can be documented at the end of the analysis.

This tool gives quick scientific guidance to clients and begins the process of making them an active participant in understanding their skin function and need for specific products and services to reach their goals.

Pro Tip: Use this with your signature facial, before and after using your basic products. It is showing how well the professional products work, and helps boost your retail!

3) Sit down with the client, and use a Skin Scope! My pick is the Visiderm Skin Scanner by Equipro!

This Skin Scanner uses black light and magnification to show a variety of skin imperfections that are undetectable with the naked eye. Your client can simultaneously view what the technician sees. It can help sell your esthetic products and services by revealing skin conditions to the client.

Pro Tip: Boost client comfort during the consultation. Offer herbal neck wraps with infused water, to help relax your clients before the treatment, and after.

Amber Skin Care Program: A Comprehensive Skin Care Program with Retail Products to Boost Profits

For all you skin care professionals out there looking for a comprehensive skin care line with retail products, I will be writing a series of blogs on the Amber 5-Step Skin Care program, and the amazing Amber Skin Care Products. Today, I will be introducing the program to you, and will follow up with more in-depth articles about each step and the numerous Amber products available for each during the weeks to come!

The Amber Professional Skincare products comprise an innovative, comprehensive product line, which makes it easy to link the professional treatments your clients receive at your spa with their daily skin care routine at home. These products truly deliver; they are successfully used in spas around the country, and selling the retail products to your clients is a great way to add profit to every service, as well as increase client satisfaction and keep them coming back!

Amber Professional has developed a 5-Step Skin Care program not only for you, the skincare professional, but for your clients too! This program allows you to use effective yet gentle skincare products to handle all skin care needs, all in one easy-to-understand program.

Amber Skincare Program:

Step 1: Cleanse
This (maybe obvious) but extremely important step is first to making sure your client's skin is treated properly during your treatment. By cleansing the skin well, you will remove debris, excess oil, and start to unclog the pores.

Step 2: Exfoliate
An effective exfoliation is necessary for a successful skin care treatment. Exfoliation involves the removal of dead skin cells clogging the surface of the skin, and it also promotes cell turnover for a healthier skin base. Exfoliation is not a step that needs to be performed every day.

Step 3: Repair
This is where you, the skincare professional, and your wealth of knowledge is needed the most. You must analyze your client's skin in order to determine which repair action is needed.

Step 4: Hydrate
This step is equally as important during your professional service as it is at home on a daily basis. The hydrate step not only refers to moisturizing the skin, but this is a great time to mention to your client the importance of drinking plenty of water!

Step 5: Protect
Sun and free-radical damage is the majority of the skin damage skincare professionals see, so encourage your clients to use daily SPF!
