Successful professionals always look to expand their knowledge with education to further their career, and professionals in skin care are no different. Industry educator Terri Wojak once
noted, “It is not about learning a few things, it is the job
of each professional to learn as much as possible in the
industry and form their own opinions.”
To expand your skin knowledge, look no further
than Face & Body Northern California, Aug. 22–24, 2015,
which will once again host the Advanced Education
Conference Program on Aug. 22, 2015. The conference
will not just educate you in one aspect of your career,
but in all. Expert speakers will discuss the most
important facets of your career, including: anti-aging
skin care, massage, waxing, employment law, customer
service, nutrition, essential oils and more. But rather
than trying to talk you into attending, I will let the
content convince you.
The conference will open with a very important,
yet hot button issue—device regulation. Innovation
continues to propel new device introduction, but
while the creation and promotion of these devices
has been rapid, the regulations surrounding them
remains unclear and varies by location. These devices
need to be used for efficacious treatments, so skin
care professionals must somehow wade through the
uncertainty to learn what they can or cannot do.
To clarify the issue for estheticians and spa owners,
a panel of experts, including: Terri Wojak of True U
Esthetics, Susanne Schmaling of Associated Skin Care
Professionals, Kristy Underwood of the California
Board of Barbery and Cosmetology, and David Suzuki
of Bio-Therapeutic, will disuss the rules and regulations
of devices and field common questions from attendees
on the subject.
After the opening session, attendees can choose
from four product-neutral tracks, including: Business,
Wellness, Face and Body.
