Facial Protocol

Bioelements Facial Protocol
“The Esthetician’s Facial”

Effective, easy to learn, and completely customizable. Bioelements facials are designed to empower the esthetician, fit seamlessly into your spa, and deliver the personalized touchpoints that clients want. 



key facialProtocol

We believe in pre-cleansing with our quick and thorough Signature Cleansing Massage. This reveals skin’s true state before the SkinReading® – since makeup can mask signs of sensitivity or other visible issues.

Bioelements SkinReading®
Read the skin and identify concerns

Take control of your treatment room with SkinReading® – our proprietary, advanced esthetics process that sets Bioelements apart from all other lines, and sets you apart from your competition. This tried-and-true system is designed to give you better results, more control, and ongoing client loyalty.

Want to hear more about this core of every Bioelements treatment? Contact us.


Our Cleansing Massage Signature Technique combines the appropriate cleanser with a physical scrub to prep skin for better absorbtion of active ingredients. 


Chemical Surface Peel
Choose the strength and activity of exfoliation

Your clients expect exfoliation or chemical surface peeling for immediate visible results. You decide the correct level of exfoliation or peel your client needs. Choose from six different formulas that vary in strength and activity. Our line of chemical peels, enzyme formulas and our exclusive Chinese Herbology all provide exceptional results for any skin type — with zero discomfort or the recovery downtime of traditional formulas.

Skin Sedation / Comedone Removal Prep Mask
Instantly calm skin post-exfoliation

We believe sedation always follows stimulation – and we build a dual-action step into every facial to save you time. Our approach neutralizes acid or enzyme activity, to ensure skin returns to a calm state that’s pliable for extractions – so you proceed with confidence.

Comedone Removal

Our protocol always includes time for comedone removal, and we’ll teach you a method that ensures fool-proof extractions.


Aromatherapy Massage
Provide an experience for the senses and skin

Elevate your client’s treatment in this protocol with our Aromatherapy Massage. A few drops of exclusive Aromatherapy Custom Blends along with our range of massage treatment and techniques will provide an experience for the senses and the skin. Discover how Custom Blending will put you on the map – talk to us.

Power Treatment
Zero in on your client’s exact needs

This is the part of the facial where you can zero in on your client’s needs and biggest skin concerns that day. You can create a one-of-a-kind, highly concentrated customized serum, or forgo custom blending and target concerns with one of our ready-to-go intensive formulas. The choice is yours – and entirely based on the client’s SkinReading®.

Power Mask
Continue to drive in active ingredients

Your Power Mask is our ‘occlusive seal’ to drive active ingredients deep into the skin. Applied right over the Power Treatment with our Double Brush Signature Technique, you choose the appropriate mask, and can custom blend it to further feed your client’s skin with exactly what it needs. The power is in your hands.

Signature Techniques
Maximize benefits and enhance the experience

Bioelements Signature Techniques are performed from the very start of the facial to the very end. Each one showcases the expertise of the esthetician, maximizes skin benefits and enhances the client’s experience. They incorporate the evoking scents of aromatherapy, the healing power of massage, the ancient therapy of acupressure – each one amplifying results and increasing client satisfaction. There are many facial-enhancing Signature Techniques that Bioelements Educators can teach you via our classes or online. Ready to put your signature on every treatment? Let’s talk.


We have the serums and sunscreens to refresh your client and the end of every treatment - and we’ll show you how to perform the Energy Tap Signature Technique to send them off renewed and energized.

“I love how I can customize each facial for my clients. No two facials are alike. I love what I do and using Bioelements makes my job that much more rewarding!” – Cari, Express Yourself Salon & Spa

Bespoke or Be Nothing: 10 Reasons to Custom Blend
Expand For Details

Is there a tool that can instantly offer the bespoke personalization your customers demand in the treatment room? Yes - Custom Blending gives you the power to zero in on individual concerns like breakouts, wrinkles, capillaries, dehydration, and more, and gives you total control over the activity of treatments and take-home products. This level of customization, achieved with just a few drops of powerful Actives and Aromatherapist Oils, provides the personalized service your clients want, and will set your facials apart from any other. 

It's the difference between a client experiencing a cookie cutter facial, and one that's so customized it may as well have her name on it. Here's 10 quick reasons you should offer this service-changing, bespoke experience:

1. It gives you more control over your results

Instead of an off-the-shelf product that cannot be modified, custom blending allows you to create an exact product for that client's needs, that day. You can even custom blend to alter the texture of a product, for example, to lighten up the texture of a heavier mask so it's more suitable for a combination-dry client with breakouts.

2. It lowers your cost per treatment

Custom blending gives you a higher profit margin on service, and eliminates the need for many skus to target a myriad of skin concerns. For example, you can create a personalized serum during your facial, or alter an existing product in virtually every treatment step instead.

3. It decreases your return rate

Custom Blending makes it more likely that your client will be satisfied with product results. And, if she is still not happy, she can bring it back for an adjustment.

If a client feels her moisturizer is not hydrating enough, a few drops of a custom blend additive (like Bioelements Deep Hydration and Soothing Concentrate) can be added to her jar. Problem solved, happy client. 

4. It maximizes results and creates brand loyalty

Your client's products are now “Made to Order.” She will be more likely to stick with you, as only YOU have her personalized formula, and you hold the key formula.

She may also become interested in other products as a result, as you can professionally recommend other formulas that can be customized with her individual recipe.

5. It demonstrates your expertise as a licensed professional

You can discuss exactly what you are adding to her formulas, and why each one will target her skin concerns and increase results. Be sure to stress that these are professional use only formulas, and the only way for her to get her products custom blended, is in your spa.

6. It keeps you engaged in the process of servicing your client

Custom Blending keeps you from getting stagnated. You are now a cosmetic chemist in the treatment room. Custom blending focuses your eyes on the small changes in your client’s skin—so your ideas stay fresh from visit to visit on how to change each formula to further improve her skin. Your client will respond to this enthusiasm, and be happy that her formulas can be customized as her skin improves.

7. It allows you to compete with other estheticians within the same business

Are you competing for the same clients within your business or another spa in the area? Just like a colorist keeps her client by being able to create that perfect shade of red, Custom Blending keeps your client asking for you for the same reason. YOU have her formula. Instead of not caring who performs her facial or replenishes her retail because it doesn’t matter, you become exclusive within your own business. Plus, you are able to further develop a relationship with your clients. 

8. It differentiates you from the competitors

No matter where your clients may purchase product, they can only get Custom Blended, personal attention and care from YOU. You have what others do not. Make sure your client knows this. 

9. It satisfies your clients' quest for bespoke

Instant gratification. Personalization. Custom Blending does it for you. And it can’t happen without YOU. 

10. It makes you more money

Your client is more likely to purchase a product from you if you personalize it to target her skin concerns. She is more likely to purchase more than one product.


Bottom line: If you don’t Custom Blend, you lose the edge over your competition. It’s what will set you apart from everyone else.

3 Ways to Explain Pollution + Aging to Clients
Expand For Details

Our world is getting increasingly dirty. Skin-aging atmospheric stressors are everywhere, from pollution, exhaust fumes, and industrial smoke, to ozone, extreme weather and free radicals. Scientists now say that day-in, day-out exposure to these atmospheric stressors is aging our skin.

In fact, researchers predict that pollution protection will have an impact on skin care that is just as great as UV protection, and become a key driver in the market as consumer consciousness increases. Are your clients aware of the damage caused by modern-day pollution? Here are some fast facts to share, and educate your clients on the negative effects – and solution for – pollution-induced aging.

1. Pollution ages your skin

The truth is, skin exposed to daily toxic pollution becomes prematurely aged, weakened, dull, dehydrated and sensitized.

Recent dermatol­ogical studies show:

  • The formation of lentigines increases with levels of traffic-related air pollution and air pollution-associated gases(1)
  • Study subjects living in more polluted areas have significantly worse skin hydration(1)
  • Study subjects living in more polluted areas show depleted vitamin E and squalene levels in the skin(2)
  • An increase in atmospheric soot is linked with 20 percent more pigment spots on the forehead and cheeks(1)
  • Soot, particles from traffic, and background pollution are associated with a more pronounced nasolabial fold(1)

2. Pollution is omnipresent

Unlike UV rays, which disappear when the sun goes down, or can be avoided entirely by staying indoors, pollution is everywhere. Car exhaust, ozone, smoke and free radicals are inescapable, no matter where you live. That's why it is crucial to protect skin on a day-in, day-out basis from the negative effects of pollution.

3. There's a Pollution Solution

New Remineralist Daily Moisture is a pollution-neutralizing, lightweight hydrating lotion for modern day aging skin.

How Remineralist Daily MoistureTM works

  • Sea salt oceanic minerals, red algae and malachite deliver powerful protection against the daily atmospheric stressors that cause premature aging
  • Replenishes skin's depleted minerals to achieve the elemental equilibrium of young skin
  • Helps detoxify and defend against stressors that cause lines, dehydration and irritation
  • Lightweight formula evens tone and renews hydration

Formula Science + Clinicals:

A Reminera­lizing Oceanic Formula

Sea salt oceanic minerals, red algae and malachite deliver powerful protection against the daily atmospheric stressors that cause premature aging

Surges Moisture

Increases skin's moisture content up to 70%* in just 15 minutes(3)

Strengthens Aging Skin

Red algae increases skin’s natural hyaluronic acid by 211% and ceramides by 56%(4)

A Copper-rich Pollution Magnet

Copper-rich malachite acts as a pollution magnet and inhibits pollution-induced superoxide anions within the cell at a rate of more than 98%(5)

Here Comes the Guide: Bridal Client Tips
Expand For Details

By Bioelements, from Skin Inc magazine, May 2018 

As soon as a client first posts a photo on her Instagram of the gorgeous ring on her left hand – it's a safe bet she's already thinking about how her skin will look on the big day. That's where you come in – to help her plan out a perfect skin care calendar to ensure she looks her best at every upcoming event, from the engagement party to the last day of the honeymoon. We spoke with some of the country's most sought-after spa experts for their best tips to help clients plan for the big event.

Note: This guide works not only for the bride, but for anyone getting ready for a important event – from high school reunions, to prom or graduations. 

Pre-package a series of treatments and services that specifically cater to your client's needs, including services that focus on the face, body, back, and décolletage.

Flexibility is key here – as every bride's expectations are different. Let her customize what she wants – she may want to experience every type of service, or focus only on facials. Be adaptable to her goals.

"Promoting to the special occasion client takes some planning and creative thinking to stand out amongst your competitors. These clients are already on the quest for flawless skin. We create pre-wedding facial packages, and arrange the packages on a stylish timeline as a countdown to the wedding. Each bride can choose the package that best suits her needs, or be tailored to exactly what she wants."– Alina Houtz, Spa Manager, Jordan Thomas Salon and Spa, Bel Air, MD

Bridal clients are often new clients, making it a great opportunity for you to showcase your skin care expertise and develop a long-lasting relationship.

"Since we have reserved the bragging rights as the only Bioelements World Class Spa in San Diego, our guests find it intriguing and want to learn more. The fact that we can offer a one of a kind, customized spa experience, specific to each guests' needs and concerns in a relaxed, tranquil setting, all the while achieving instant, visible results is priceless, and appeals to every guest type, especially the bridal client." – Bonita Bragg, Manager of Spa Operations, Paradise Point, San Diego, CA 

A crucial part of ensuring your client looks her best on the big day is making sure she does her skin care homework. Recommend the right retail products to extend the results of her services and get her skin in optimal condition in-between facials. You can't work out at the gym, then eat poorly at home and expect to see results – skin care works the same way.
"I recently decided to offer all our Bioelements treatments as 80-minute services only. Why? It allows our estheticians to spend more quality time with the guest, perform a thorough SkinReading®, answer questions, write up professional recommendations and escort the guest back to the retail area post-service, where they will have time to educate them on the right at-home products, and custom blend them accordingly to further target concerns. Last week was our first week implementing this, and our retail sales literally doubled." – Bonita Bragg
All clients (especially brides) are looking for complimentary offers, discounts and incentives. Budget is everything when wedding planning, so make sure every offer is appealing and valuable.

"With my spa being located at a destination wedding resort, I have partnered with our Director of Sales to promote spa services, in particular, facial services. If a bride has not booked a spa treatment prior to her arrival, I will reach out and extend a complimentary Bioelements Custom Facial for her, when she also schedule the same facial for 5 members of her wedding party. Our Brides love it."
 - Bragg 

"We make sure to always highlight retail products for bridal clients. We'll choose a few products that compliment the service, and offer a same-day discount of 15-20%."
- Houtz


A bridal entourage includes the maid of honor, bridesmaids, flower girls, mother-of-the-bride and mother of the groom – keep them in mind when you plan your bridal offers. 

For example, you can promote 15% off all services for groups of six or more. This is a great opportunity to promote your spa as a bachelorette party destination. Include gift bags, champagne, cocktails, appetizers and music to truly make it a memorable and fun event for the bride and her guests.

Simple, little details can make all the difference when it comes to planning for a big day.

"Dress up a gift with purchase! Decide how you want to incorporate a GWP, and then go one step farther. Personalize them with a pretty tag that says "bride-to-be" and a gorgeous bow. Do the same for the maid of honor gift bag, mother of the bride, etc. Small details go a long way and make you memorable." – Houtz

Hosting a wedding planning skin care event in your spa can be a great way to boost sales, increase bookings, introduce clients to new services and promote your spa to potential new brides-to-be. 

"We host in spa events to celebrate the wedding season and introduce our newest packages, innovative products and highly trained professionals to the world." – Houz 


Make sure your services and upcoming events are properly marketed. Promote your services and events via:

  • Advertising – Advertise digitally and in-print in your local magazines or newspapers.
  • Social Media – Promote the event via your spa’s Facebook page, Instagram,  and Twitter accounts, so your fans and followers can receive early notice. Remember, one post is not enough. You can also click 'Create an Event' on your Facebook page to officially post all the details to your followers.
  • Web site – update your website to promote and hype your offerings.
  • Email –  Send a targeted email to your current client list.
  • Signage – create signage to display inside your spa to promote the event. Your skin care line should offer easily-downloadable editorial images to help promote the event.
  • Outgoing message – Take advantage of your spa’s recorded outgoing phone message to promote your event. Add a short message announcing the event name and day – such as “Don’t forget to reserve your spot at our Vow to Wow Event on September 3 – space is limited.”
  • Local Media – Write a press release that includes the event facts (what, where, when) and send it out to your local broadcast news channels, magazines, and newspapers. Look for the name of the editor or writer who writes for the section covering local events and send it to their attention.

Brides are in the market for many services to help them get ready for the big day. Consider reaching out and cross-promoting your offerings with the following: 

  • Local gyms and personal trainers – As mentioned earlier, getting the skin in optimal shape is just like getting the body ready. Many brides and grooms will seek out professional help to get in great shape for the big day. For example, you can combine efforts with a local gym and offer a 6-month Bridal Boot Camp for Face + Body at an incentivized price. Workout your body at the gym, workout your skin at the spa! 
  • Hotels, wedding venues, and wedding planners – Offer referral incentives: "15% off any facial service series service for brides booked at Venue X."
  • Photographers – Work with local photographers to offer "photo ready wedding skin" offers, including incentives on retail and service packages.


With permission, take shots of your bridal clients enjoying the results of your services, and post them to your spa account. In addition, be sure to follow your clients' own personal accounts and re-gram their wedding-day photos!

Intake Mistakes: 3 quick tips
Expand For Details

Here's a new mantra for you: "My treatment results are only as good as my intake forms."

As real world estheticians, we are constantly up against the clock. Between tighter schedules, less downtime between appointments, and increased retail pressure, it's easy to understand why some may think it's OK to overlook the importance of an intake form, or devote little time to it. But intake forms are not only the gateway to a meaningful dialogue between you and your client, they're your insurance policy to meet your client's expectations, every time.

So don't skip this insurance. Follow these tips below:

1. Make sure the form is filled out correctly

Every form must be filled out completely and correctly for every single treatment, no exceptions. Each client you see should be treated as a first-time client. Here's why (follow this example from client Jane):

Missing date:

Without a listed date, you have no way of knowing when the service was performed, in the event you need to go back and look at a particular treatment, check skin progress, etc.

No email:

You have no way of personally communicating with Jane to say thank you, send her invites, offer information, and more. 

Incomplete health info (questions 1, 5, 7, 11, and 12):

Skipped questions or vague answers can have a huge, negative affect on Jane's results.  You need medical info (doctor's care, medications, adverse reactions), as this affects how her skin will perform and respond to today's treatment. This will also greatly affect your treatment decisions and at-home recommendations. 

No listed concerns:

The #1 most important question to ask on your form is one that's often skipped. "What are your concerns and challenges?" – This question is the single reason Jane came to see you. It's the gateway to build a loyal and long-term relationship with her. It tells you what Jane's expectations are, and what you need to focus on that day.

No signature

When both Jane and you sign the form, it shows that you have reviewed it together, and by signing, she gives you permission to apply a chemical peel. This also potentially protects you against any liability (check your state's liability laws to make sure you are in compliance)


2. Avoid going on autopilot

As I mentioned above, we all know that time can often be tight, and less attention may be paid to a completed form. This is especially true for your repeat, long-term clients. You've already seen them dozens of times, so you "know" their skin, right? Wrong. Skin can change overnight. A client can start a new medication, or experience new skin-affecting stress, change their diet, or start using a new at-home skin care device. There are countless ways their skin can change from appointment to appointment. 

That's why it's crucial to ensure they fill out the form, and for you to go over it and follow up with the right questions.


3. Separate yourself from the competition

Your client is making an appointment with you because she wants help. She needs professional expertise and is looking for a solution to a real concern. Meet her needs, and prove yourself as an esthetician that is thorough, wise and effective. Your goal is to explain to her why her answers are so crucial to meet and exceed her expectations. When she understands the why behind your questions and actions, she'll come to know that you are a true professional with her best interests at heart.


Simply put, the intake form is a lifeline between you, loyal clients, and a successful career. When you truly understand your client's goals, and they in turn understand how you can make the best decisions for them, you'll see that intake forms are the key to visible results, and a growing clientele.

4 Easier Ways to Explain Free Radicals to Clients
Expand For Details

Chances are, your clients have heard about free radicals from magazines, blogs or even on social media. But do they really know about the damage these common skin-agers can cause? Establish your skin care authority and educate your clients with these simple explanations. Because clients should get their skin care wisdom from you, not a random blog. 

1. Compare Apples and... Skin Damage

Put free radical damage in terms your client has experienced first-hand. Ask, "Have you ever watched a cut apple slice start to brown?" That process is called oxidation, and it is caused by free radical destruction. Oxidation occurs when free radicals damage parts of the cells, such as proteins and cell membranes. Free radical damage can lead to wrinkles, lines, dehydration, hyperpig­mentation and loss of youthful volume.

When free radical oxidation occurs, cells become damaged and lose their ability to function normally. The body tries to compensate for this by activating inflammatory pathways. But this inflammation can further degrade collagen and elastin, which also leads to premature sagging and lines.

2. Name the Culprits

Free radicals are triggered by daily pollution, ozone, cigarette smoke, UV rays and extreme seasonal weather. Scientists are becoming more aware of the specific climatic threat of our environment, and how atmospheric stressors are prematurely aging our skin. Free radicals can even attack DNA and potentially lead to cancer.

3. Introduce Them to Superheroes

Antioxidants are skin's superhero against free radicals. Vitamins C, A and E are all potent antioxidants that help protect the skin from the damage caused by free radicals. They work by interrupting free-radical damage. Antioxidants actually sacrifice themselves to save our cells; they offer themselves to be oxidized, rather than the cell.

As antioxidants are constantly sacrificing themselves to protect your skin, they must continually be replenished.

4. Give Them a Real Solution

Clients can help prevent free radical damage with skin care formulated with potent antioxidants. Bioelements new Plump Start is a plum-infused antioxidant concentrate that instantly improves fullness, nourishes and smoothes fine lines.

Powered by Collagen-4 Complex, this intensive plumping concentrate surges moisture deep into surface layers to soak skin with vitamin C charged antioxidants, and significantly scavenge free radicals from 70% to 85%.* This "liquid filler" includes three Australian wild plums plus a moisture-magnet marine bioactive to hold moisture in, and push it up through the epidermis to help support skin's volume and reclaim natural youthfulness. It is intelligent hydration that reads your skin and penetrates where it's needed - to visually improve the look of skin's wrinkle valleys and crevices.

Treatment Room Taboo: Gloves or no gloves?
Expand For Details

We're always posting tips, tricks and news on Bioelements Facebook page, often sparking great conversation between both pros and spa-goers alike. Recently, posts demonstrating some of Bioelements Signature Techniques prompted comments, and even some questions, about the use of gloves during a treatment. Curious to hear how others felt about it, we opened the topic up with a question on our Facebook page. It turns out, some estheticians wear them from SkinReading until the end of the treatment. Others wear them only during extractions. Since it's such a popular topic, and one I find important to any facial experience - for both the professional and the client - I want to talk about why I always encourage estheticians to use gloves in the treatment room, throughout the entire treatment.

It's the law. Many states legally require that estheticians wear gloves during the extraction process to prevent the possible transmission of illness via blood or other bodily fluids. While this policy varies from state to state, it's reason enough to wear gloves during and post extraction to keep both client and esthetician safe.

Products last longer. Rosie Grain put it perfectly in our Facebook conversation: "Product seems to penetrate better into the skin instead of my hands." With the barrier of the glove between the skin of your hands and the skin care you're using, your client gets 100% of the product and its benefits, and you use less product!

Your hands are your business. Have naturally cold hands? Love to garden and have hands that show it? Experiencing dryness from constant washing and sanitizing? With gloves, your client will never know. Gloves that fit properly will warm hands and cover them in a smooth texture that glides over the skin when product is applied, removing any distractions and making it a pleasant experience for both you and your client.

Nails are a no-no. In our Facebook conversation, Ashley Hoskison added, "dead skin stays under nails for quite some time and I feel gloves are more sanitary." She's right! No matter how short and well-kept your fingernails are, dirt, dead skin, and bacteria can build up beneath them during the facial, leaving both you and future clients open to infection.

You are a pro! Medical and dental professionals take the same care with gloves when they interact with patients - why not bring that same level of professionalism and authority into your treatment room?

THE KEY: Make sure your gloves fit properly. I love non-latex gloves that are so thin that I can still feel the texture and temperature of my client's skin so there's no worry of losing a connection between you, your client, and their skin. A properly fitting glove should hug the hand so there's no excess material to make noise or slide around. Correctly-fitting gloves shouldn't be noticed by a client and, in my experience, even estheticians (who typically don't wear gloves during massage) have told me they couldn't tell a difference when I gave them a facial while wearing them. Quite a few of you said the same of your clients in our Facebook conversation!
