Q: What devices do you recommend for estheticians?

Large spas and medical practices usually have the funds to purchase expensive equipment. But, what do you do if you are a single-room esthetician or a smaller spa that wants to offer result-driven treatments, but don’t have the budget? Here are four must-have devices for 2024.

  1. High frequency. Provides ozone to sensitive skin, reduces inflammation and helps heal acne.
  2. Woods lamp. Analyzes the skin.
  3. Handheld devices (e.g. Dermalogica’s Nano Infusion or Bio Therapeutic’s Titian). These handheld devices allow spa professionals to offer microneedling or professional exfoliation without purchasing large dermabrasion machines.
  4. Microcurrent/galvanic. Penetrate product and prep the skin for treatment.

It’s not common anymore, but the Dr. Lucas Pulverizer is a luxurious way to mist sensitive, dehydrated and aging skin. This is not necessarily a “must-have,” but it is a professional piece of equipment that allows you to enhance your services.

I also must remind everyone about the importance of a good treatment chair or bed and quality sheets.  If the client is comfortable and takes a little snooze, they don’t really care what “gadgets” you are using.

Make sure that all of the equipment you purchase has online and in-person training offerings. Be prepared to answer client questions, know contraindications and adjust your menu pricing to reflect your upgraded services.
