From the Author

Working in the esthetics field has been a true pleasure for me. I love this profession, and it is a large part of who I am. Throughout my experience of owning a day spa and, working as an esthetician, esthetics educator, and product representative, I have become frustrated with the lack of equipment resources. So to help all estheticians, spa owners,massage therapists and others in the esthetics profession make smart, independent decisions, I wrote this book. You will find it easy to read and a helpful addition to any treatment room.

5.0 out of 5 stars comprehensive info on most aesthetic equipment March 8, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are one of those aestheticians who are always searching for new information for building the best possible treatments, then this may be the book to buy. This book provides loads of information on what a number of different machines do from the very basic, and many more advanced.
It is the first comprehensive guide that I have found that includes useful information about microcurrent, and led for acne and facial rejuvenation. It's sections on electricity and light are better than I expected them to be. I would have liked more info esp on ultrasound and ultrasonic topics. But still I got more help here than any other source so far.
The author includes helpful advice on how to chose from the many different brands and manufacturers, according to what features it must have, and according to what's available that you might want your own equipment to do. (like do you need a cadillac or can you get by with a hundai?)She also gives instructions on how to clean and maintain all the equipment profiled as well as indications and contraindications for their use.
I chose this book because it has a number of pages more that involve each subject than any other references that I have. And it certainly delivered more information. So I am pleased that I bought and read it. I have already marked it up and expect to refer to it again over some years at least.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Particularly Informative March 22, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The vendor was great. Book arrived in near pristine condition. I felt the book was really sparse in information. There was very little information about equipment recommendations. Professional spa equipment is very expensive, and it is difficult to obtain reviews on equipment. Also, the book was sparse about how to treat equipment. I can't say I learned anything from this publication.
