Spa Products: Smooth Operators


Summer is around the corner, and client demand for cellulite-blasting treatments will be--if it isn't already--on the rise. To help ensure you are employing the cream of the anti-cellulite crop, we've compiled a list of suave professional topical formulations.

But keep in mind, no matter which you opt to use, the goal is to get these products' agents down to the hypodermis, the deepest layers of skin. Have clients massage topicals in firmly to increase ingredient penetration. "This should be performed in the direction of the heart, to encourage draining and lymph flow," says Alice Pichery, international trainer for Sothys USA. "Heat can also be beneficial. I recommend applying topicals after a hot shower, or exercise."
