It is so important to tap into aesthetic expression as an outlet for broader levels of service innovation, and new insights and inspirations. Use your ingenuity to invent new approaches and satisfy your intellectual appetite at the same time. When you access your unique set of inherent gifts, you give yourself more freedom and fulfillment. The richness of your work experience depends on what you are willing to give to it.


Where does your spa need aesthetic innovation? Estheticians with artistic flair have so much to share. Areas in which you can make a difference include the following.

  • Marketing—Can you develop workshops that bring principles of beauty to the forefront?
  • Treatment development—New modes of expression can be added to therapeutic environments by adapting lighting, adding music, providing different levels of touch to treatment applications or creating new physical sensations by introducing various massage techniques.
  • Retailing—Display merchandise in clever ways. Strengthen its visual appeal by using color, texture, line and design.
  • Uniform or treatment gown alteration—Create patterns or sew new designs.
  • Music—Compose new musical pieces for treatment and retail areas
  • Graphics—Design the layout of treatment menus, newsletters, brochures, thank-you notes and gift certificates.
