Learning Different Treatment Techniques and Protocols

Training on spa treatment techniques.
How do you prefer to learn new treatment techniques in the spa?

Brands will approach education differently when it comes to onboarding new treatments into your spa. Some turn to gong on-site to provide the education while others have a dedicated location for spa professionals to go to. The question is...which do you find to work better for your business? 

When we asked our Skin Inc. audience this question 57% shared that they prefer to travel to a classroom setting while 43% shared that they would rather have the educators come to them. No matter which method you prefer, we can all agree that keeping yourself up-to-date and educated on what is happening in the industry is crucial for success. 

We're sharing the latest in what is happening in the treatment world of spa at our Face & Body Northern California show that is happening Aug. 20-21, 2023 at the SAFE Care Credit Convention Center in Sacramento, CA. Don't forget to register for this amazing event, and check out our advanced education opportunities as well.
