“Spas would be the perfect setting for a nonevasive procedure. With the calmness and wholeness of this procedure, the client relaxes as the treatments are being delivered.”

Donna Lope, executive vice president Diamond Systems USA, Corp.

“One of the challenges faced by busy spa professionals is keeping up with the changing times and technology, and guiding clients toward treatments that are both effective and in line with expectations. Therefore, it is important to do your research first. There are a lot of LEDs on the market, but not all have the scientific research and clinical studies to support their claims. In today’s competitive world, estheticians need to remain the experts in skin care, and show current and prospective clients that they are up-to-date and well-informed on what the media is buzzing about.

Once the research has been done, incorporating LEDs into a spa menu can be easy, because these treatments are versatile and can fit into several different categories. LEDs are the perfect complement to any anti-aging spa treatment, and, because LED photomodulation sessions have been shown by physicians to help reduce redness and skin irritation, they are the perfect post-treatment for procedures such as facials, microdermabrasion and peels. LED treatments also can be a great add-on to waxing services, because the light can help to calm and soothe waxed skin, causing the redness to subside more quickly than it would on its own.”
