The Power of Steam: A Deep Dive into Facial Steaming and Why Your Spa Needs It

April 11, 2024 | Posted by Meghan Smith

What is a facial steamer?

A facial steamer is a skincare device that produces a steady stream of warm, moist air to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin. It works by using heat to create steam, which is then directed onto the face. Facial steaming helps to open up the pores, allowing for a more effective cleansing process. This can help to remove dirt, oil, and other impurities that can clog the pores and lead to acne breakouts. Additionally, facial steamers can help to hydrate and moisturize the skin, improve blood circulation, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Overall, facial steamers are a versatile and effective tool for improving the health and appearance of the skin.

Why should you add facial steaming services to your spa?

Facial steamers can enhance the overall client experience by providing a relaxing and soothing treatment. The warm, moist air can help clients unwind and feel pampered, adding value to their visit, but aside from the luxurious experience, these machines can offer your clients many skin benefits. This can also benefit your business. Here are a few reasons to add these services to your spa:

■  Facial steaming opens pores to help stop acne from forming.
■  Hydrates the skin instead of just moisturizing.
■  The heat from the steam promotes circulation to promote collagen and elastin production to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
■  Since the pores open up, the skin can absorb products much more easily.
■  Allows estheticians to offer more services to increase revenue.
■  Relatively inexpensive equipment for a profitable return on investment.

Which facial steamer is right for your business?

There are a few important things to consider when selecting a facial steamer. You want the machine to be able to reach all types of clients, so choose a steamer that is height adjustable and on casters like the Athena 8-In-1 Skin Care Machine. This will allow you to move the machine to accommodate everyone.

You also want to ensure that you have ample lighting on your clients’ faces as you steam and add products. Many facial steamers, such as the 2-in-1 Ozone Facial Steamer & Mag Lamp Combo, come with a magnifying lamp attached to the machine to illuminate the skin for added precision.

Also, purchasing from a reputable brand in the beauty industry is crucial. There are an overwhelming number of facial steamers to choose from which can make it hard to tell which is the best one for your spa. Choosing from a reputable brand such as Athena Beauty, Pibbs Industries, and Buy-Rite Beauty will guarantee that it is professional quality and will last.

Many facial steamers come with these added features and sometimes even more. It is important to know exactly which services you want to offer on your menu before selecting one. Added features can increase the price point of these steamers, but it allows you to offer more services and steeply increase revenue.


Overall, facial steamers are a versatile and effective tool for improving the health and appearance of the skin. Whether you’re looking to cleanse your pores, hydrate your skin, or reduce the signs of aging, a facial steamer can be a valuable addition to your skincare routine. Adding these types of services to your salon can help increase business and revenue quickly. Check out our full collection of facial steamers.
