It is universally acknowledged that women strive to look good to please themselves and others by all means. Nowadays, males have also started to pay attention to their appearance and physique. The prosperity of beauty industry in Hong Kong is driven by these beauty lovers. What’s more, the sales of beauty industry did not see a fall when the SARS was spread in Hong Kong a decade ago. Amid ever-changing development in science and technology, beauty is no longer limited to doing facial and the range has become much broader than before. Beauticians must keep abreast of the trend and strive to master new technologies to rival in the industry.
Many beauty salons have Traditional Chinese Medicine divisions that offer tailor-made diet and workout schedule for their clients and help them adjust their body functions and improve their health inside and out. Besides, medical cosmetology has been very popular in recent years, and the techniques of face-lifting, liposuction, IPL treatment have grown quite mature.
However, frequent medical cosmetology accidents (e.g., DR’s poisonous injection) in Hong Kong over recent years reflected that Hong Kong’s regulation on this aspect is still not as satisfactory as neighboring countries. Therefore, beauticians need to acquire more relevant knowledge, such as using beauty instruments, and understanding theories of traditional Chinese medicine and drugs, to acquire professional licenses and to provide a safe and comfortable environment for guests.
While serving customers, beauticians can also listen to customers’ needs and stories to create a relaxing and carefree atmosphere on top of professional cosmetic services.Interested in this industry?
