Amplify Your Facials With Masks!
February 26 • Skin Care
Because masks are popular on social media, there’s never been a more exciting time to add them to your menu! Working masks into your existing facial protocols is an easy way to differentiate your treatments, boost revenue, and increase efficacy.
Traditionally, a mask is a cream-based product that’s applied to the face. While this type is still very popular, there are now other varieties available, such as sheet, gel, targeted, and modeling masks:
Sheet Masks: These multitaskers feature effective plant-based ingredients ranging from avocados to watermelon. Types of sheet masks include hydrophilic gel, pure collagen, cryogenic, transdermal, and organic.
Example: The Diamond Collagen Mask, suitable for all skin types, softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and has a lovely translucent lavender color.
Facial Gel Masks: These multipurpose masks can be brushed on the face, mixed into powder masks as a booster, or used as a conductor gel for treatments like high frequency, IPL, ultrasonic, and laser.
Example: The Sensitive Transforming Gel Mask contains chamomile oil and aloe to calm the skin post-laser, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or sunburns/windburns.
Targeted Pads / Masks: Created to address specific concerns and shaped to conform to certain areas of the face, these make great add-ons!
Example: Clients who have vertical lines around the upper lip would benefit from the Pure Collagen Upper Lip Pad during facial treatments.
Modeling Masks: These versatile peel-off masks can be used with or without gauze.
With so many varieties and unique choices, don’t limit your skin care treatments to just one. Multi-mask!
Add masks to different areas of the face at the same time or layer them, starting with a lighter mask first.
Example: If you have an acneic customer with concerns about wrinkles around the eyes and a sagging neck, you might try the Pure Collagen Eye Pads layered under the Anti-Blemish Tea Tree Mask. On the neck area, apply the Neck Lift Collagen Mask.
Add a gel mask under a sheet or cream mask.
Example: For irritated skin and hyperpigmentation, you can layer a lighter weight gel mask such as a Radiance Facial Transforming Mask Gel under a creamier mask like the Stem Cell Anti-Wrinkle Mask for a more even-looking complexion.
Spot treat a problem area and then add a mask to the entire face.
Example: For hormonal skin with breakouts, you might spot treat blemishes with Moor Spa® Blemish Gel and a layer with a Collagen Transdermal Mask for overall hydration.
You may also increase your revenue by offering signature holiday treatments with masks. For example, target the eyes with the Crow’s Feet Collagen Eye Pads, the lips with Lip Collagen Mask, and then layer a luxurious chocolate or pumpkin sheet mask over the face. Here are a few more seasonal ideas:
- Prosana Cranberry Rubberizing Mask
- Prosana Crystal Eye Mask / Wine Extract
- Prosana Relaxing Peppermint Soft Mask
- Prosana Pumpkin Collagen Mask
- Prosana Chocolate Mask
Increasing your revenue is as easy as incorporating masks into your services. And for those clients who are hooked on social media—offer them an incentive to take a picture of the mask treatment and post it to their favorite account.
