New Year New Skin

Posted on December 26th, 2012 - Written by: Bellus Academy

“New Year, New Skin” by Joanne Berry

One of my favorite facials is the HydraFacial™. Being a guest educator for the Hydrafacial company and performing the treatments on clients and seeing amazing results, I have recommended it to many people as a superior facial treatment to experience.

It’s a new breakthrough in aesthetic technology. It takes its name from the root word Hydrate; “to cause to take up moisture.” This ability to moisturize the skin separates the HydraFacial™ from all other skin resurfacing procedures. The HydraFacial™ treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective. It can be used on all skin types and I recommend it as a “pre-party” or a “booster facial.”

It’s quick! For immediate results it can take as little as 15 minutes or you can have more of a “spa type” Hydrafacial which can take up to an hour. There is no downtime and your make-up goes on flawlessly afterwards. Results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. One treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, oily and congested skin.

I recommend that you try this facial and see how great your skin can really be!

ESTHETICS (SKIN CARE) EDUCATION

Our basic esthetician training program offers the most comprehensive professional training in all aspects of the esthetics industry, including skin analysis & conditions, facials & electrical facials, chemical treatments, skin treatments, hair removal & make-up application. In most academies this level of training is only available by taking “post-graduate” courses.

JOANNE BERRY, DIRECTOR OF SPA & WELLNESS EDUCATION

Joanne Berry has over 18 years of international experience in the luxury and medical spa industry. As the Director of Spa and Wellness Education, Joanne keeps our esthetic and massage curriculums on the cutting edge of industry trends. This includes creating and overseeing the ongoing development of an advanced course curriculum for our academies. Joanne also uses her connections and industry acumen to help place students in the spa and salon industry upon graduation. Her goal is to establish lifelong relationships with them for future job placement.

As a native of the United Kingdom, Joanne was trained in Europe and holds a BTEC National Diploma in Beauty Therapy and an IFA Diploma in Aromatherapy. In her early roles, she worked as an esthetician, massage therapist, aroma therapist, and body treatment specialist. However, Joanne was quickly drawn to the business side of the industry. She focused her career on management and sales where she could utilize her skills in beauty techniques while using her business savvy to: sell products, develop innovative marketing techniques, create strategic planning, and design unique signature spa treatments.

Joanne’s subsequent positions focused on business management and education in many different segments of the spa industry including: cruise ships, multiple day spas, resort/destination spas and most recently, medical spas. Joanne has conducted extensive training and product seminars, including training over 400 staff in all aspects of spa treatments and customer service while serving as the Education Manager with Steiner Day Spa Division in San Diego. She gained broad operational management experience overseeing spa services on 125 cruise ships with Steiner Management Services.

In addition to speaking at international conferences, Joanne keeps up with the ever-changing medical spa and luxury spa industry through attendance at conferences such as the ISPA and the AAD (American Academy of Dermatology) conferences. Joanne also contributes regular articles to Spa Business Magazine and other trade publications around the globe.

student testimonial

"I enrolled at Bellus Academy in 2009. I enrolled in the make-up course with Ms. Judy and the Esthetics Program with Miss Larissa and Miss Olga. Since day one the teachers and staff have been amazing. I could not have asked for more out of a school and teaching staff. I feel very fortunate and happy that this school is available and can accommodate such fantastic services."
