Achieve a Better Body ... Noninvasively

Posted: July 27, 2012, from the August 2012 issue of Skin Inc. magazine.

People have long searched for solutions to achieving a better body. If the number of body products and procedures on the market today is any indication of how important achieving that better body is to consumers, then it appears the search is at an all-time high.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, buttock lifts increased almost 40% in 2011. Similarly, treatments for cellulite and skin resurfacing also increased. However, what if you could offer clients an alternative to body rejuvenation that didn’t involve going under the knife?

As a skin care professional, you have a number of tools at your disposal to do just that. Advanced, cutting-edge ingredients combined with useful methods in facial rejuvenation can provide clients with effective, noninvasive alternatives to body contouring. Utilizing body peels, customized home-care systems and nutrient-rich bronzing formulas, skin care professionals can help clients achieve toned, supple, firm skin, as well as address issues, such as hyperpigmentation, keratosis pilaris, acne, aging, dull form, slack skin and cellulite bumping ... to name a few. It is likely that you have clients searching for body care solutions—how can you be there to fill the need?

The business of body building

Body peels, much like facial peels, work beyond the surface to reduce course texture and fine lines, diminish age spots and hyperpigmentation, and help maintain healthier, more youthful-looking skin. For these reasons, clients are typically receptive to body peels as an alternative to surgical procedures. Plus, they love the soothing effects of corrective body massages.

Body peels work by initiating deep stimulation, breaking the skin down, then rebuilding and nourishing it while stimulating cell turnover. Treatments may be adjusted and customized to address almost any skin type or issue, and allow skin care professionals to provide solutions to sun-damaged, photoaged or sagging skin, as well as the appearance of cellulite.
