Complete List Of Magazines For Spa Owners, Estheticians and Cosmetologists
Why is it so important to stay up to date with the industry's top magazine publishings?
Magazines such as DermaScope, Les Nouvelles, and DaySpa are central hubs that anyone from skincare enthusiasts and Estheticians to Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists can go to find the latest trends and updates in the industry. These publishings are an excellent place to learn all about new treatments that have surfaced in the industry and even clinical trials on these new technologies. Since most of these magazines either sponsor trade shows, participate in them, or even host them, it's an excellent way to stay in the loop of upcoming events and shows going on around the states.
These magazines and the events they host are an excellent way to network your business and learn about new treatments that you can introduce to your spa or treatment room. More often than not, it's also an excellent place to find deals from brands that you wouldn't find anywhere else.
The best part about subscribing yourself or your business to our industry's magazines is the wealth of knowledge and continued learning available in them. Compared to Social Media where information is vast and fleeting with thousands of photos and images on your screen daily, magazines come to you typically once a month and contain a concentration of what is buzzing in the industry that month. Rather than having to sort through the volume of ads shown to you, you can pick up a magazine for 30 minutes to an hour and read through what our industry experts have to say - learning about how to improve your treatment menu and in turn your business!
