It has not taken off in my salon yet. We haven't pushed it hard though. Haven't given up on it yet, but its not an easy sell like a new bed.

Re: Red Light Therapy

Does it actually work? What do you charge per session? How often does someone use this?

Re: Red Light Therapy

It works! I have noticed a difference in one of our clients that has used it for about a month. We even had someone come in that knows here after seeing the results. I am kind of surprised by the results. Its not a huge difference, but you can tell.

Re: Red Light Therapy

I think that would be hard to sell in the same bed for a higher cost?

Re: Red Light Therapy

I actually think with the life of these bulbs you could offer it cheaper then a normal tanning unit... And make more.

Question is if it really works.. Works its a gold mine, doesn't then your stuff with another empty bed with expensive bulbs.

Why do people not want to make money?
RLT is a premium service & demands high $$ per session.

Yes, it works.
Yes, the lamps last longer.
Yes, many salons are making good money on it.

I have been selling the Red Lamps for over 2 years, suddenly ever bed maker can't sell tanning beds anymore so they are jumping on the red light therapy wagon. It's great there are many RLT options available to salons, however they need to wake up & see the profit potential of these units. There is no need to bring in RLT if you are just going to devalue it & make it worthless for any other salon to offer in your area.

Your idea of value is going to be different than many others. It sure is from mine.The session prices you posts about the units resembles advertisements from bed manufactures... For every salon you could actually get those prices out of there are many, many more than couldn't come close to selling a single session and it has nothing to do with the salon and how they sell. It is location!

Re: Red Light Therapy

I'm not preaching so much on price as commitment. You need your clients commitment that they will use the RLT as suggested. $299 for 3 months is only $6 per session, by no means is that expensive.

Selling single sessions is just not the way to go with this. They took 40 years to screw up their skin, give us 3 months to make a difference is not crazy!

Location has nothing to do with RLT. Women want to look good all over the US & they are willing to pay for it. You can't tell me that the Macy's or Dillards by you doesn't sell any face serums at $100 for .50 oz tube. They sell plenty of these lotions & creams all over the US for high dollars.
