There are so many fantastic skin treatments that can have great results for clients. In this blog, we’re letting you know how you can help your clients choose the right skin treatment.
Many clients will come to you knowing exactly what treatment they want. However, that doesn’t always mean it’s the right treatment for them.
Other clients may get in contact with skin concerns, but they aren’t sure which treatment to choose. As a beauty therapist, this is why it’s so important that you know your services in great detail. You’ll be expected to assess these skin concerns and make valuable suggestions for beauty treatments.
You’ll need to invite new clients for a thorough consultation before completing any treatments. At this point, you can assess their skin and goals, allowing you to identify whether the chosen treatment is the right one.
Assessing the client’s skin type
The first step to helping your client choose the right treatment is assessing their skin type. This is a crucial step, as the type of skin you’re dealing with can react differently to certain ingredients used in the treatment.
Skin treatments use many different tools, exfoliants, serums and creams. It’s very important that you complete a skin analysis and assess these elements to ensure they are safe to use for the client in question. Some clients are prone to experiencing redness and irritation, but finding a great skincare routine can help with this.
Some people have sensitive skin, dry, oily, or ‘normal’ skin, and others may have combination skin. Using the right treatments is key to ensuring that the skin appears healthy and fresh.
Assessing skin goals
Most clients will contact you because they have skin concerns or they want to try something new that may help them reach their beauty goals.
Your job is to listen to their goals and suggest beauty treatments to help achieve them.
Some common skin goals can include more moisture, exfoliation, or even treatments to reduce the signs of ageing. It may be appropriate to speak to the client about their habits so that you can make an even more accurate assessment of their skin. For example, do they drink enough water, or how much time do they spend in the sun?
You might also choose to let your clients know how to protect their skin from the sun. This may include wearing SPF daily, which can help to keep the skin looking healthy.
Skin & Facial Treatment options
The skin treatments you can offer your clients will depend on the training you have received. At TABA, we offer a wide range of beauty courses for you to choose from. Additionally, we have many aesthetic courses. Whatever direction you choose for your beauty career, we’re here to support you.
Our courses comprise both theory and practical elements so that you can start your new career with confidence. Here are just some of the skin treatments you can learn at our training academy.
Dermaplaning is a fantastic treatment for those wanting to exfoliate their skin. This treatment uses a small surgical scalpel to remove dead skin cells and fine vellus hair. It offers great results, with many reporting that their skin is much smoother and clearer afterwards.
As a student with us, you’ll learn how to perform dermaplaning safely. You’ll also learn about the benefits, the anatomy of the skin, and how to consult and inform clients about aftercare. You’ll see one of our advanced practitioners perform the treatment and then be invited to complete it yourself on a live model. This is a key part of your training and will enable you to complete the dermaplane course confidently.
Microneedling is a treatment used to encourage collagen production. Collagen is a protein that can make the skin appear more youthful and plump. Our bodies produce less collagen as we age, which can explain why the skin loses some of its elasticity. The lack of collagen plays a key role in the ageing process. The treatment uses small needles in the face to increase collagen production and even skin tone.
Enrolling in the microneedling course at TABA will allow you to learn about the physiology of the skin, how to perform the treatment, Meso Therapy, which type of microneedling is right for your client, consulting and aftercare advice.
We believe in teaching you all aspects so that you can offer the best quality service to your own clients.
Chemical peels can be used to remove dead skin cells and encourage the production of new skin cells. This can lead to the skin looking healthier and younger. Chemical peels use a specific solution containing different ingredients.
Our chemical peel course teaches you about various ingredients, skin physiology, the benefits of peels, skin conditions, consulting and aftercare advice. You’ll need to perform the peel on a live model before you complete the course.
All of the above three courses can be completed within our Ultimate Skincare course.
The Plasma Fibroblast treatment involves tightening areas of the skin. This can help clients reveal a youthful appearance by reducing sagged skin.
Our Plasma Fibroblast course covers the anatomy of the skin, health and safety, non-surgical skin tightening, non-surgical blepharoplasty and skin tag and mole removal. The course also covers improvements for acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. We’ll support you through your live model experience so that you complete the course with the essential skills to perform the treatment safely.
HIFU Face & Body
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. After this treatment, you can enjoy some of the benefits of skin tightening and a facelift without invasiveness. The non-invasive tool used gets deep into the skin to encourage it to heal itself using its own natural ability. The treatment can be used on the face, neck, tummy, arms, thighs and more.
During the HIFU course, you’ll learn how to complete a thorough consultation and how to perform the treatment on the face and body. We’ll support you with your own live model and let you know the correct aftercare advice to give your clients.
Always ensure that you use safe products for all beauty treatments, whether you’re working with tools or products. With great training, you can assess your client’s skin type and goals before suggesting the right facial treatment for them.
