    A Unique & Game Changing Service: The LCN Anti Age Treatment

    How many times has have you heard from your manicure clients "Oh, my hands look so old!"? The ugly reality is women show signs of aging in their hands (and neck) first – and those are the areas we take care of least! We put sunblock on our faces, but rarely our hands, and over time little dark spots and fine crepey wrinkles creep up on us. Well now there's a solution you can offer to your clients who want youthful looking hands again!
    This is your class if you are looking to expand your client treatments from just caring for their fingernails to addressing the challenges that comes with aging. You will learn how to decrease age spots from the back of the hands as well as plump and firm atrophied skin. Learn what the studio skin expert is and how to accelerate the results you desire by incorporating this in your services.
    Class is 3 hours in duration. Class fee includes LCN Anti Age Kit ($45.00). Certificate upon completion.
