The LED Search has ended!!

I purchased my first LED machine in 2002. At my two skin care centers every client (no matter what skin type or skin issue) gets LED in their treatment. I just feel like it is the icing on the cake...we top off the end of the treatment with 10 to 15 minutes of LED. We also offer a stand alone 30 minute booster treatment for in between their regular appointments. They love coming in to get away from their busy world for 30 minutes and it just keeps them looking awesome!

I have been through many units since 2002. The most expensive being $10,000. I've had units that I really liked but had to move on because the company didn't live up to my standards. I look for quality in the equipment, a good price point where we can begin to make a profit quickly and also integrity of the company. It's harder than you think to find all three of those!

There's one company that I connected with a couple of years ago and for some reason I resisted. Can't tell you why.....just timing I guess. We've chatted over the years and been friendly at all the trade shows. Very nice people!

Well, when I realized that making my own unit was much more involved than I could ever imagine, I decided to give in to their "wooing". :-)

My new best friends are now Lightstim!! Chris Healey, whom I've been chatting with over the years, dropped by the Center with one of their panels and also their hand held units. He gave me a wonderful presentation about their company and also LED. He left the panel and a few handheld units with me to test.

The first client we put under the panel knew right away that we had something different. She had been getting treatments with LED but the minute we put this panel over her she said "wow, this is much more powerful". A couple of days later I finally had a few minutes to experience it myself and I can honestly tell you that the Lightstim panel gives you more bang for your buck than any panel I've ever used....even my $10,000 unit!!

What took me so long!! I now feel like I've taken the results of my treatments up a notch with this panel. They passed my test...quality equipment (made in Southern California), a good price point where we can start making a profit very quickly and the company has integrity (they back their product and they very much want our success)!!

We've started selling the hand units to our anti-aging and acne clients. You guys, they are going to get them on HSN or might as well be the one selling them a quality unit! The profit is good!

Doesn't Anyone Pick up the Phone Anymore?

This is driving me bonkers so I had to write about it to get it out of my system. Seems like we hide behind emails nowadays instead of really communicating. I've had two things happen this month that could have turned out completely different had the person picked up the phone. Have we gotten too busy to actually speak to each other or is it just easier to act mean over an email or perhaps not take responsibility. Help me out I too old fashioned and this is just the way things are now?

If you decide to do business with me.....please please communicate with me via phone if there is ever anything you are not happy with. I've been told that I'm pretty cool to work with. I want you to be happy, so let's get it taken care of right away instead of the passive aggressive email thing!

New Training Center Shaping UP!

The walls are painted and the carpet is in!! Whoohoo! We've ordered custom built in desks for the office and they are going to look so awesome. When the fella came in to measure he was mesmerized by the view. Just hopin' ya'll don't get too mesmerized during class!

We have our first company scheduled for a workshop in March. Aesthetics International will be there. If you are interested or know a company that may be interested in giving a workshop at our Center, please contact me!

Guess what we're doing for Christmas? Decorating! Happy Holidays everyone.....Shelley

Esthetic Training Center Grand Opening

We are super excited! We just signed a lease for Real Transformation Training Center in Capistrano Beach, Orange County California. We are literally across the street form the beach with a full ocean view. You can have lunch at the seashore! My only concern with this location is that our students will be daydreaming out the window instead of concentrating on the workshop they're attending! We are remodeling and hope that we're having a Grand Opening event sometime in January. I'll keep you posted!

We are working on the workshop schedule for 2015. We plan on having classes for everything you'll need to be successful in this industry. We've already started chatting with some very good educators.

There is a hotel right next door for our out of town students! We've already worked out a good discount rate with them.

Watch for the workshop schedule soon!
