Alameda Skin Care Center Skin Deep Continues Developing Web Store

Alameda, California (EastBayDaily) — Alameda spa treatment and skin care center, Skin Deep, is still developing its new web store to ensure complete security due to the pharmaceutical component of the store. The online store will feature Dermalogica, Jan Marini, Glominerals, Clarisonic, Obagi Medical and Latisse.

“Both Obagi and Allergan (Latisse) have prescription components and because we are an authorized dealer with a medical director, we take it very seriously to ensure that when our clients give us their information, it is protected on the Internet,” Deborah Spalla of Skin Deep said.

Skin Deep has explored several options and is now confident that it has the right website developer and web store shopping cart. Skin Deep anticipates that the web store will be finished and operational by the end of 2012.

"Once these tasks have been completed, we will begin looking for a warehouse location for the fulfillment (web store) location for,” Spalla said. “Our local clients will have an easy option to shop either online or come in for our famous personalized service and guidance."

Skin Deep has always offered "free" consultations with the following caveat. It guarantees consultation appointments with a $50 charge.

"Our time is valuable, and we have found that when we adopt this policy our clients appear for their scheduled consultations," Spalla said. "However, we only charge this fee if there is a last-minute cancellation or no show. This ensures the client is committed to keeping this appointment."

Skin Deep is now open six days per week for the client's convenience, and will begin opening on Sundays by the end of August. It is currently hiring a third esthetician to open the spa that day, at which point the spa will be open seven days per week.
