More Ranting from The Beauty Highway; Spa Services and Keeping The Family Jewels Covered Up

You could be having a great day. You’re running right on time. Clients are over complimenting you at the front desk. There’s a four-inch stack of gratuities in the drawer. And then… hold the phone, kids:

Can anyone share their experience with a good quality professional Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber? I have had a Skinmate  which has served me well, but it was purchased years ago and it's time for a new one.

I have tried the Skin Spatula with 6PZT ceramic crystals in the hand-piece, but clients has not enjoyed the high pitch sounds and it get too hot to use for extractions. I have also tried the small cordless 2PZT unit and that works fine for the extractions, but I would like all features…

Thank you, Mom!

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and it’s likely that quite a few of us will either be spending time with our mother, or will be thinking about a memory from the past involving her.

More Ranting from The Beauty Highway; Clients who approach us outside the office for advice.

Are We Truly Healers?

I’m one of those estheticians that got into the business because I have a passion for skin care and I love taking care of people. However, whatever you do, please do not approach me at a party and lead me into the kitchen to take a look at a growth on your husband’s back. Really. What do you expect me to do?
