Facial Beds: Everything You Should Know Before Buying

Facial Beds: Everything You Should Know Before Buying

Aria understands the importance facial beds play in helping you provide excellent service to your clients while running a successful business. No matter the function—spa, massage parlor, tattoo parlor, salon, or private medical practice—we carry a large selection of facial beds offering different functionalities at various price points to suit any and all your needs.

What is a Facial Bed?

A facial bed is a piece of furniture found in medical spas and salons used by technicians to position a client properly while receiving medial or spa treatments. Facial beds should be durable yet comfortable and ergonomic for both the client and therapist. Some facial beds include a face cradle allowing the client to breath easily while facing downward. Facial beds should be easy to clean and sanitized in-between clients.

Why do you Need a Facial Bed?

People go to spas and salons to relax, get pampered, and hopefully leave with that beautiful “glow” feeling that comes from having invested some well spent time and money on yourself.

Your facial bed is often the focal point of your salon or spa and the first thing your clients notice when entering your space. It’s not an exaggeration to suggest that having a quality facial bed is critical to the success of any medical spa or salon. Making sure your clients feel comfortable and safe during their treatment or procedure should be top priority.

With the goal of providing a great customer experience and memorable service on a comfortable and relaxing facial bed, you’re setting your technicians up for success while ensuring your client walks away a happy (and loyal) customer.

What to Consider when Choosing a Facial Bed

There are so many things to think about and look for when deciding on a facial bed that’s right for your spa or salon. Here are some things to consider before you buy:

Comfort

It goes without saying that comfort is where it’s at when providing a high-quality and memorable experience your clients will love. Nobody likes a lumpy bed. When it comes to facial beds, choose wisely when selecting the type of upholstery, fabric, and padding. The main things you need to keep in mind after comfort are beds that not only look great and feels good, but will prove to be easy to clean and maintain.

Your client’s comfort is not the only one you should have in mind. Consider the technician, too, and make sure your facial bed will allow them to do their work in comfort day after day.

Appearance

Style matters and looks are everything when considering the furniture you choose for your spa or salon space. Whether you’re a minimalist looking to keep it simple or are all about a strong finish hoping to make a long-lasting impression—take the time to think about what sort of image you hope to convey with your facial bed.

Safety is Key

Making sure your clients feel safe and secure should rank at the top of your list. Nobody wants to lie on top of a bed they feel might collapse or move suddenly during their treatment or procedure. Consider design, durability, stationary vs. portable option, as well as adjustability features to help clients to easily and safely get on and off.

Cost

They say it’s rude to talk about money around the table—but when it comes to treatment tables, cost should be a main factor in your decision making. Be realistic about your budget and shop for the features you need while taking into account the accessories you may want. It’s often better to invest a little more in a product that will last longer than to take a chance at something that sounds too good to be true.

Logistics

While it may not be glamourous, logistics is important when it comes to not underutilizing or over buying for your workspace. Consider the size of your spa or salon as well as your available storage space and accessibility to the items your technicians need. Some facial beds come decked out with cabinets and drawers for storage. This is particularly appealing for business owners who are working with a modest spa or salon floor.

Maneuverability

Choosing between stationary and portable facial beds depends on the type and size of business you run. If you’re expecting a full house, the ability to maneuver your clients or go between different facial beds throughout the workday may be the difference between an enjoyable day and a nightmare experience.

Electric vs. Manual

Electric facial beds offer a lot of extras. If you like to keep things simple, though, it’s perfectly fine to go manual. Some facial beds offer a combination of both. Make sure to consider how having electrical functionalities and remote capabilities may enhance your technician’s ability to do their job while making sure to meet all the needs of your clients.

Accessories

From client-focused items like face cradles and pillows to elongated footrests to cup holders and chargers, what you choose to add to your facial bed should be carefully considered. Same for features to help your technicians to perform their job—everything from remote controls to flexible armrests to tilt-back functions to enable luxury massage or treatment to paper holders.

Once you have narrowed down what’s important to you, what you want, and what you need, you’ll be ready to decide on a facial bed that will be right for you and your clients.
