People walk into salons and treatment parlous for a facial to get pampered and relax. Effective service should be your main priority as an esthetician. You could have the best products and the best hands, but without a professional and comfortable facial bed, you might not be able to deliver outstanding results to your client.
Our goal with this article is to help you choose the right facial bed for your business and clientele. This article seeks to help you select the best facial treatment bed that will best meet your needs and the needs of your client. We talk about the types of facial beds, factors you need to consider when choosing one, and review 4 of the best facial beds from our spa equipment inventory.
The best facial treatment beds should be able to meet the needs of the client and the esthetician. Different types of facial beds are differentiated according to several features. The most important things to consider when getting a facial bed are:
A quality facial bed does not come cheap that's for sure. A great bed will set you back as high as $2,500, but something mid level to help you get started, can range from $600 to $1,000. Getting a quality facial treatment bed is of the utmost importance because the beauty industry is all about quality. Less expensive options are available that offer great value, but lack on important features, comfort and durability.
When getting a facial bed, make sure that you consider the size of your treatment room. This is to avoid getting a bed too big, making it difficult for you to work effectively or for the client to move around.
PORTABLE vs STATIONARY
A portable facial bed is a great option for on-site treatments, like clients' homes, because it's easy to carry around. It is efficient and convenient giving you the freedom to work from anywhere. However, it's not something that will last 10+ years. You'll need to buy a new every few years, which isn't bad. The most you should spend on a portable facial bed is $500. At the end of the day, you're going to bang it around if you're using for mobile treatments.
A stationary bed is not meant to be moved around much, which makes it better at incorporating features of comfort. It is very bulky and heavy, but has a wide range of features that will keep your clients very comfortable and satisfied. Additionally, it holds more weight than the portable facial beds and lasts longer.
ELECTRIC vs HYDRAULIC
A hydraulic facial bed allows for height adjustment and has a foot pedal that pumps the bed up and down. The hydraulic lift is only for height adjustment and in some cases, hydraulic facial beds have a 360° rotational base, helping estheticians with mobility and reach.
An electric facial bed gives an esthetician more control in comfort, reach and mobility. It allows for the back-rest and leg-rest to adjust up and down, comes with extra cushion and comfort, 2 to 4 motor engine and a remote control to help make all the necessary changes to the facial bed.
ADJUSTABLE or STATIC
Adjustment is essential to meet your needs and those of your client. There are different points of adjustment that are important in a facial bed. These include the head angling, the height, and the legs. These adjustments allow the bed to meet the comfort needs of your clients and you as well. For example, adjusting for height is important, because when the facial bed is too high or too low, it will affect your back and posture (ultimately your treatment).
