Esthetician equipment is probably the largest single investment you'll have to make when setting up in business. Though the expense can be considerable, try to invest in the best equipment you can afford. It's going to be the backbone of your business for years to come.

Esthetician equipment begins with basic treatment furniture, such as facial chairs, wet and dry tables, technician's stools, storage cabinets and supply trolleys. Will you be going to your clients, or will they come to you? Portable equipment has greatly improved, but a folding table is still no match for a 360-degree swiveling table with hydraulic height adjustment, removable armrests and adjustable back and leg rests.

Esthetician Equipment for More Advanced Procedures

What types of treatments do you intend to offer your clients? One of the most common procedures is microdermabrasion, and there are a wide variety of machines on the market. You will need to decide which kind of crystals you prefer, aluminum oxide, sodium chloride or sodium bicarbonate. The more powerful the engine, the more expensive the machine, but again, you get what you pay for. The more powerful engines can reduce treatment time, maximizing turnover. They are also quieter, which makes the experience more pleasant for your client.

You will also need advanced esthetician equipment if you intend to do laser or light treatments. And finally, a skin scanner is fast becoming standard equipment. This machine allows you and your client to view skin under black light, so that areas needing treatment are clearly visible. Allowing your client to view his or her skin before and after treatments goes a long way toward building client loyalty and satisfaction.
