    First male client in home salon

    I'm afraid that when I worked home alone I didn't treat men. I did exactly like you're thinking - check in with a neighbour/ book him when someone's around etc but then decided I just wouldn't treat. Now I have a salon we only book male clients in when there are at least 2 therapists around...

    CACI costs

    They're not cheap. You're looking around £12,000 for the basic machine. Have a look for second hand. We now have 2 in the salon. The first I bought new and the second was used. Vic x

    Phorest schedule system

    We've used ovatu for about 4 years now. I looked at phorest and the start up was so expensive. I decided to try ovatu and if it had too many glitches or didn't work for my business I'd move to phorest. Still with ovatu. Vic x

    Caci Ultimate vs Synergy

    No difference at all. The lift is the same. I have 2 CACI machines in the salon, a synergy and a classic and they both lift the same. I personally wouldn't buy new again. Vic x

    Massage length of time?

    I agree. As said, it may be for 2 different people. If not, I wouldn't do it. I think it's unrealistic. Vic x

    Plasma pen training and qualifications for medical personal

    Your insurance company are the ones who can answer this as can the trainers but be aware that trainers don't always tell you the full story. Do check you can get insurance before anything. Vic x

    RF machine?

    There should be some results if you use the search function. I use the Carlton Thermavisage for face and body and am very happy with it. A reasonable price and we've had great results. We're even looking at buying a second machine. Vic x

    Manicure & facial, which to do first?

    I always try and leave the best till last. I have gowns for clients to use so they can have a manicure and slip them off easily. Vic x

    Renting out salon space

    It sounds like a good idea but your staff would become self employed and you would lose control over what they charge and when they work etc. Would they be happy for the change? Lots to consider Vic x

    Need advice about a new machine

    Not that at all. We don't really do body treatments, we are a salon specialising in skin treatments. We have it there if we need it, but as we're looking at buying a second Carlton one, I'm going to have a look at the face only one. Vic x

    Needle-less fillers

    There's been a lot about this on some of the Facebook groups. It uses pressure to push the products in, from what I can see, and can leave lots of bruising. Do lots of research x
