Posted: May 28, 2013, from the June 2013 issue of Skin Inc. magazine.
Face & Body Northern California 2013

There’s no question about it: The professional skin care industry is in the midst of an evolution. It isn’t the same as it was 10 years ago—in fact, it isn’t even the same as it was two years ago. Various events and issues continue to impact and shape the industry, including, but not limited to, the economy. It is more important than it ever has been before that spa owners and skin care professionals be at the top of their game in terms of education and product knowledge in order to secure their place on clients’ priority lists.

Want more education?

Because of the ever-increasing expectations placed on you ... the Face & Body team has listened to your needs and requests, and has developed an ALL NEW Advanced Education Conference Program format that allows you to learn more in-depth information about the topics you most want to know about. And not only will you have the opportunity to participate in these incredibly high-quality product-neutral sessions ... this year, two bonus opportunities are available in each track to apply the concepts learned through product-specific demos.

Not only will you enjoy a full day of product-neutral education, but we are also offering an additional hour of product-specific education, providing the real-life, highly applicable tools you need to take what you learned and allow it to immediately benefit your business!
