Why You Need To Offer Express Treatments

In addition to your spa’s signature offerings, many of which are likely to include long, blissful periods of soothing relaxation, your treatment menu should aim to capture those clients who simply don’t have enough time in their schedules to allow a full pamper session.

Giving the option of express services can set beauty business owners on the path to maxing out your appointment book, often even freeing up valuable weekend space by allowing clients to bump their Saturday up to a weekday lunch hour instead.

Not only this, but express services provide a high-yield, low cost solution to businesses, particularly for treatments that take therapists just 20 – 30 minutes to perform. As long as you’re delivering visible results, the sheer convenience will keep clients coming back.

Here are some of our favourite lunchtime beauty treatments:

Express Eye Treatment
Most of your favourite professional ranges offer some kind of express eye service already, so be sure to request info and instructions directly from them. If they don’t, why not design your own signature eye treatment? This could include a quick cleanse of the eye area, tone or lotion, mask with a heated lavender pack, and contouring serum with lymphatic drainage massage, which can be easily completed in just 20-30 minutes.

Mini Manicure
Not to be confused with the in-and-out file and polish offered by shopping centre nail bars, let your clients know that they can still receive high-end spa service and comfort in their lunch break with an express manicure option. Therapists can easily achieve shaping, cuticle removal, and quick hand massage and polish within 30 minutes.

Hair & Scalp Treatment
This could be offered as a stand-alone service or an add-on extra to a body or facial treatment, and your clients will appreciate the opportunity for some hair TLC without the notoriously long visit to the hairdresser. An Indian Scalp Massage with a warm mask treatment makes for an unbeatable 15-20 minute combination and lunchtime pick-me-up.

Light Therapy
While often incorporated into luxury, full-length facials, LED light therapies like Omnilux can be offered standalone, with each treatment lasting just 20 minutes. Along with experiencing a feeling of deep relaxation and wellbeing during and after the treatment, clients will often see a change in plumpness and hydration after just one short session, with best results seen after 4-6 visits.

Performed by gliding a surgical blade at 45 degrees over the skin’s surface, Epiblading removes the outermost layers of dead skin cells and fine facial hair, leaving skin soft, bright and supple, and providing a smooth canvas for flawless makeup application. It can also improve product penetration, and takes only 20-30 minutes to carry out.
