Customer demands in the aesthetics industry are ever increasing, with tremendous change occurring in the last five years. More and more our clients are requesting results driven treatments. Clients wants less risk, less pain and best prices. Clients also likes change... while they may be prepared to stick with a product or treatment for a period of time to achieve results, they do so with the expectation that the products and equipment they are exposed to in the salon is the best available to them

Your clients are relying on and paying for, your expertise and experience and they expect you to keep abreast of the times. It would be no different if you were a car mechanic or dentist; like the beauty industry, both these industries are continually bombarded with new technology, products and techniques. It is therefore your job to do the research.

As a major supplier of equipment to New Zealand aesthetic industries, Youth Beauty is heavily committed to providing equipment and technology that has been fully researched, ie. - it works, does what is says it does and gives results - and giving you, the therapist, enough education and training to fully exploit the technology. In turn, you must demand the same from your suppliers as your client demands from you. After all, you are at the frontline!

In our field of expertise we have been using LED (light-emitting diode) therapy for a few years it has been part of the industry. However, it is only since 2005 that studies conducted by NASA in respect of light therapy and its effect on plants ( in order to provide a sustainable source of food) and the acceleration of the healing process (where prolonged exposure to microgravity may retard healing in space stations) have been published.

Determining how effective a particular LED therapy system is simple – but only if you know the right questions to ask. Effectiveness is determined by the following factors and will dictate the treatment time and number required per week:

• Number of LEDs in the treatment head (the greater the number the better)
• Total size of the treatment area covered at the same time in either mm or cm2 (again the greater the better)
• Output intensity of the system in W/cm2 (the higher the output intensity the more powerful the system)

So what, if any, is the difference between laser/LPL and LED light therapy rejuvenation?
1) LED therapy offers a more complete coverage for a longer period of time. Treatment head sizes are around 218 cm2 (depending on the system) whereas, typically, the treatment head size of a laser/IPL is around  4cm2.
2) Led therapy stimulates the cell for a longer period of time, typically anywhere from 10 minutes upward, depending on the output intensity of the system, whereas with laser/IPL the cell is only stimulated for a fraction of a second.
3) LED therapy offers completely hands-free operation. Laser/IPL treatments are highly labour-intensive.
4) LED therapy works with the skin, not against it.
5) LED therapy is non-thermal, non-ablative and non-invasive. No ultra-violet light is used and, unlike laser/IPL, offers immediate results with virtually zero post-treatment problems.
6) With most LED systems, staff can be fully trained and operational in four hours. Laser/IPL training is far more intensive and over a longer period of time and unless undertaken prior to delivery, the system is not operational immediately.
7) No licence is required to use LED therapy equipment, neither does a laser safety officer need to be on the premises – because it’s not a laser!

In reading this, you have already begun your research into one aspect of modern-day aesthetic equipment. The rest is up to you.  For further information CLICK HERE or contact ilse@youthbeauty.co.nz

Let's Sun it up for you ( part 3 )

Written by Theravine on December 3rd, 2018.      1 comments


Whether you choose to spend your free time by the beach, surrounded by nature in the middle of a game reserve or beside a pool, fact is, if it is summer and there is sun involved, no matter how careful you are, there is always the risk of sunburn. Despite health warnings about sun damage, many people still subject their skins to the sun's burning rays. Studies show that more than one-third of adults and nearly 70% of children had sunburn within the past year.

 

DID YOU KNOW:

UV Rays are responsible for about 90% of pre-mature skin ageing?

 

LET US HELP YOU BE SUN-SAVVY THIS SUMMER

 

It is said that high SPF values (over 50) are a marketing gimmick as they fool people into thinking they are completely protected from sunburn or the risk of skin damage. On the contrary, they may encourage people to spend more time in the sun, exposing themselves to more ultraviolet rays.

 

DID YOU KNOW:

Due to certain regulations on active ingredients, SPF 30 and SPF 100 products generally contain

almost exactly the same concentration of ingredient used to reduce UVA exposure.

 

Melanoma rates are increasing almost 2% a year since 2000. Babies and young children are especially vulnerable to sun damage as a few blistering sunburns early in life can influence babies and children’s risk of developing melanoma later.

 

Try Our: Sun Defence SPF30

A light, non-greasy CANSA approved formulation that offers both UVA and UVB protection

It is also suitable for toddlers from the age of 3 and up!

 

How much sunscreen should I apply to different areas of my body?

Each arm:  Just over half a teaspoon (3ml)   

Face/neck: Just over half a teaspoon (3ml)

Each leg: A heaped teaspoon (6ml)  

Front of your torso: A heaped teaspoon (6ml)

Back of your torso:  A heaped teaspoon (6ml)

 

‘Sometimes, our skin needs saving by a super hero...’

 

Let’s face it - you lie out in the sun hoping to get a golden tan. We know you never meant to get sunburnt but the company was just so good, you lost track of time or

nodded off and instead find yourself looking a not so attractive fifty shades of pink.

 

Try Our: Aftersun Rescue Gel – with Grape Stem Cells

 

“Although there is no undoing the damage that the sun caused, you can help your skin recover sooner. As is the case with our Aftersun Rescue Gel, after-sun products assists with the repair process as they help to rehydrate and soothe the skin while sealing moisture in the skin,” says CEO and product developer Lisa Smit.

 

With our Aftersun Rescue Gel, the name says it all – your own ambulance in a tube, coming to your skin’s rescue. What makes the TheraVine™ Aftersun Rescue Gel significantly more advanced than similar products available on the market, is that we took skin repair to the next level by adding Grape Stem Cells to replenish dying cells and to regenerate damaged tissue.

 

Take CARE to ensure you are sun smart:

Cosmetics: Apply a broad spectrum sun screen daily.

- Apply sunscreen about 30 minutes before you go outside.

- Use sunscreen even on overcast days because UV rays can penetrate clouds.

- Reapply sunscreen every two hours or more often if you perspire heavily or are swimming.

Avoid direct sun exposure between 10h00 and 16h00.

Right clothing such as a wide-rimmed hat, light long sleeved clothing and sun glasses.

Examine your skin for changes regularly.
