With the new normal requiring our clients to wear a mask during a service, body treatments are becoming a popular addition to our service menus. Many of the best results are found using a device that can help reduce cellulite, body fat and perform skin firming effects. When choosing a device for body treatments, there are many factors that are important to keep in mind to decide what works for your business. It can be easy to get caught up in the latest marketing hype and make an expensive mistake.

Do I Need It?

The first question that should be asked is do I really need this device? Is this part of my strategic plan? Do not buy something out of desperation to add more to the menu that you feel can help you stay in business. Body treatment devices have a high dollar purchase price and take years to pay off unless your business is packed with treatments. Right now, packing a schedule is not allowed or a safe option.

If you decided a body device is the way to go, identify what results your clientele is seeking. As an example, see Cellulite Reduction and Firming Devices. Keep in mind many esthetic devices we use on the face can also be used on the body.
