Everyone loves the classic facial, but every spa should offer a signature treatment, or better yet, a facial that makes your spa stand out among the rest. It's time to think beyond the basic facial and get creative with your offerings. Here are four tips from experts that you can include in your facial protocols to go the extra mile for your clients.

“Try chilling masks or incorporating chilled ice globes for cooling summer treatments, or apply heat with steam or a warm compress for a soothing treat in fall and winter.”
—Rhonda Allison, founder and CEO, Rhonda Allison Cosmeceuticals 

“Masks can be offered as enhancements for both massage and manicure/pedicure services, as a lifting or tightening add-on, a skin-detox treatment, or as a part of a ‘face-lift’ massage.”
—Brian Goodwin, international trainer, Eminence Organic Skin Care

“Use masks post-microdermabrasion for firming, brightening, and deep hydration, or right before foundation for flawless makeup application. They’re the perfect travel companion to rehydrate, rejuvenate, and brighten the skin.”
—Elyse Blakey, corporate educator, Image Skincare 

“Add acids to clays for an exfoliating mask, or apply serums under a hydrolyzed collagen sheet mask.”
—Janel Luu, CEO, Le Mieux Cosmetics and PurErb
