Bea Erdman

Effective Time Management
–  Meghan Rundell

Patients running late, not having the supplies you need, last minute cancellations…these are just a few of the reasons we can find ourselves feeling flustered, stressed, filled with anxiety and ultimately it can lead to poor job performance and lack of job satisfaction.  This is your career and paycheck we are talking about! If you find yourself saying “oh my gosh that happens to me!!!” come learn effective scheduling and time management habits to help you take back control of your schedule and your life!

Exfoliation Techniques for Maintaining Healthy, Youthful Skin
- Terri Wojak

Description: Exfoliation is a necessary step to maintain healthy, youthful skin. The variety of exfoliation methods available can make it hard to decipher which to use and why. These techniques range from superficial scrubs that a client can do at home all the way to deep chemical exfoliation performed in a medical setting along with several options in between.  Learn about the different types of exfoliation commonly performed by professionals including dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, high-pressure saline, lasers, and chemical peels. You will also see a video demo of dermaplaning with tips and tricks on how the procedure is performed.
