Here’s a quick cheatsheet on the Retinoid family. I wanted to break down the different types of Retinoids and the results associated each one. Now I can’t make generalized as to which one is the best retinoid for u, because every skin type is different. The strongest retinoid are Tretinoin and isotretinoin. These are pure Retinoic acid. They are only available by prescription and will change your skin quickly. The drawback they have significant side effects. Over the counter Retinoids have to be converted into retinoid acid by the enzymes in our skin before we can actually get their benefits. This can happen in one two or three steps: One Step: Retinaldehyde is the precursor to Retinoid Acid.
Two steps: Retinol converts to Retinaldeehype and then the Retinaldehype into Retinoid Acid. Three steps: Retinol Esters covert to Retinol, then from Retinol, to Retinaldehype, and finally from Retinaldehype to Retinoid Acid. The closer the compound to Retinoid acid, the more readily it converts thus more effective it becomes. But keep in mind the conversation rate can vary depending on the individual( some people convert retinoids into retinoids acid more quickly than others:) This is likely due to their skin type and skin condition.

When I started this business I knew I wanted to offer soooo much more than just basic facials.
I offer an experience that continues beyond the actual appointment it includes:
-Self Care Kits
-Post Facial Care Instructions
-Follow up Emails
-Periodic Check Ins
My clients know that I don't just care about their skin, I care about THEM! I am there to support and foster their self care journey not just wash their face.
This is how I've been able to retain clients and grow through referrals. In this business relationship building is so important.
What are some ways that you connect with your customers and gain their trust in order to retain them as clients?
