Clear, firm, even-toned, younger looking, glowing skin is the ultimate desire of every client. It should also be the goal of every professional skin therapist for their client’s skin. Exfoliation is a fundamental part of achieving these results; it helps remove grime, surface debris, impactions and dead skin cells. It also effectively preps skin to receive key ingredients and stimulates cell renewal and turnover. Cliens love the way their skin looks and feels after a professional exfoliation service. Receiving skin compliments from their significant other, BFF and “likes” from their Instagram followers also goes a long way in justifying the time and financial investment.

The Technology Trend

To help them achieve these results and keep them coming back for more, it’s important to utilize modalities and also retail products and devices to enhance the exfoliation step. Fortunately, today we have the most exciting technology at our fingertips. If you are uncertain whether consumers are purchasing skin technology for home use, $33.5 billion in revenue was generated by the global beauty device market in 2017. This segment is forecasted to grow by a CAGR of 19.4% from 2018 to 2023.1 This doesn’t cut into product sales, as the global skin care market is estimated to reach $180 billion by 2024.2 Increasing awareness among consumers about devices and skin technology for treating wrinkles, blemishes and sagging skin is leading to their increased adoption and attributing to their vast growth in the market.1
