Re: Lumiere (Anyone making money?)

Research everything and try used units! I have one for sale if you are interested. yes, $30,000 is a big chunk of money. Do you have spray tan there? How about waxing, maybe some sort of hydromassage etc. You have tons of options!

Don't try to compete with the medical field in led light rejuvination. The public won't take you seriously. Tanning Salon owners have been mis-led all over the states in the last couple of years.

Re: Lumiere (Anyone making money?)

Yes they will if you are sincere and know what you are talking about. if you have 16 yr olds running your salon you will not do well. Dont listen to a few upset people on these chat boards do your own research call RAI get referals from people who this has worked for. Good luck in your decision.

1- I couldn't have been more sincere. I had just signed a lease for $42000.00
2- I knew what I was talking about. After all, I was trained by an RAI rep who anylized my salon and said it was the perfect setting for lumiere.
3- 68% of my Tanning Clients are over 25. Not exactly a buntch of 16 year olds.
4- I have a list of upset people that would not be considered a few.

You have nothing to base your claims on or you would have given them to us on this site a year ago.

The salon has no sunless, and six tanning beds. An esthy rents a room for facials, waxing and body wraps. A massage therapist has also started bringing in clients. I'm not sure of anyone in Hawaii that has Lumiere to try it out.

Re: Lumiere (Anyone making money?)

You have all the money makers going on in your salon. Your renters are giving you a steady trickle to help pay your rent. Don't get caught up in something that will eat up all of your profit. Unless you have more money than you know what to do with.

Re: Lumiere (Anyone making money?)

Research everything and yes, people will take you seriously if you are informed, professional and knowledgeable. I began doing laser hair removal about a year ago, and honestly, it makes me tons of money, knock on wood, haha. However, you need to answer everyones questions, not let your staff, who is probably young and clueless. Make sure you know your stuff, inside and out and they will come. Laser is even more advanced that lumiere and much more room for error and I had 68 clients last weekend. So, sorry TJ, but if you market correctly, know your product and are professional, anything can work!

You don't have to be sorry Glow. But, I thought you said you had a lumiere for sale.
