Our guide to curating your spa or clinic’s shelves.
Thinking about adding a take-home product selection to your spa or clinic? A beautifully curated offering won’t just make an aesthetically-pleasing addition to your space, it also serves a very practical purpose.
As any aesthetician or cosmetic medicine practitioner worth their salt knows, there’s only so much you can do in-clinic to achieve a client’s treatment goals. Much of the work must also be done at home with the help of high-quality skincare, sunscreen, and other products such as supplements.
If you’re not sure we’re to start when it comes to choosing your new shelf edit, we’ve got you covered. Below, find your guide to all the best skincare, ingestible beauty supplements, and other goodies you might want to consider for your shelves.
Manual facial massagers
Designed to lift and sculpt, Gua Shas and other facial massage tools are amazing for clients to have on hand to prep their skin before a big event. For an extra-refreshing effect, direct your customers to place their tools in the refrigerator before use to soothe, depuff, and refine.
Our pick: Lanshin Nephrite Jade Pro Gua Sha Tool was designed with reference to ancient Chinese medicine techniques. It has been carved from Hetian jade in a unique shape perfect for reaching every inch of the face.
Sunscreen is a must-have item in any type of treatment clinic if you ask us. There are two main types of sunscreens to choose from: Chemical and mineral (AKA ‘physical’). Chemical sunscreens work by using ingredients that filter the suns rays whereas physical sunscreens include ingredients that deflect UV. For post-treatment usage or for skin that’s sensitive, physical sunscreens are generally the better pick.
Our pick: solér SPF 30+ which is created without any synthetic chemicals, preservatives, parabens or added fragrances.
Products from a premium-quality cosmeceutical skincare brand are our recommendation if you choose to stock this product category in your spa or clinic. These days, there are a slew of brands created by cosmetic medicine practitioners themselves such as Liberty Belle, Dr Naomi Skin, and Dr Natasha Cook.
Our pick: Liberty Belle Rx by Dr Chris Moss Plastic Surgeon Eye Dream for its innovative formulation with red algae complex and retinol .625.
Probably one of the fastest-growing product categories in the health and wellness space right now is supplements designed to improve the skin from the inside out. Beauty supplements contain ingredients like collagen peptides or hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate the complexion from within.
Our pick: Glowso™ Collagen Supplement For Skin, a newcomer on the supplement scene developed by Perth Naturopath Natalie McGrath drawing on her clinical experience.
LED and other light therapy tools
The use of at-home LED treatments can be very beneficial for reducing post-treatment sensitivity and inflammation and complementing the results of professional therapies, as Dr Naomi McCullum of The Manse Clinics recently explained in an interview with SPA+CLINIC.
Our pick: Omnilux ContourTM Neck & Décolleté is a dermatologist-recommended light therapy device that’s been clinically proven to offer skin rejuvenation.
