Milady: Advanced Face and Body Treatments for the Spa
Advanced Face and Body Treatments for the Spa covers a wide range of advanced treatments that help clients to relax and rejuvenate. The book begins with in-depth coverage of the anatomy and physiology of the skin, the muscular and cardiovascular systems, providing the aesthetician with the background information needed to offer the most beneficial and enjoyable face and body treatments to the client. This book incorporates helpful illustrations (full of pictures showing how to use the ilike products!) and diagrams to guide the aesthetician through the cells and functions of the skin, muscles of the face and body. Subsequent chapters build on familiar treatments such as facials and body wraps, and focus on advanced topics such as lymphatic drainage and exfoliation. Information regarding common ingredients used in body treatments and their benefits and functions, along with how to incorporate them into client services, make this a useful reference for aestheticians who are looking to expand their treatments to a more advanced level. This book concludes with two valuable chapters on marketing your spa and understanding the business of spa treatments. It is a complete guide for providing creative and cutting-edge spa treatments.
