EDUCATION IS KEY TO SUCCESS
Who I Am
As a former salon owner now on the other side as an educator, my best advice is …
Use products that you believe in; products that will deliver results for your clients. With an industry that is oversaturated with skincare brands, it is important your clients have a good understanding of your chosen brand, its points of difference, why you chose to work with it in your clinic and what it is going to do for them.

Most clients rarely see a change on their skin from looking in the mirror each day, so it is vital to take baseline images, then monthly with each clinic visit.

The piece of equipment I think is essential is a skin analysis camera. Clients are asked to invest considerable amounts of money in skincare regimes and, in this day and age, aestheticians should use technology like this to substantiate their recommendations. Similarly, aestheticians should use products with proven scientific results that can show a true visible difference in the skin because of the formulation of the product. Clients, I believe, also look for products that are safe, effective, trialled and tested in Australia and are certified cruelty-free.
