The result of the research is as the following. According to the result of the knowledge about skin, customers are generally satisfied with the skin care that have done for them, and they visit the skin care shops for healthy looking skin and for the improvement of their skin condition. The general skin massage was preferred the most among any age groups. The customers had their face skin care the most, and they have variety of skin care as they are getting older. This shows the increasing interests and cares about their body shape which is changing after their marriage and childbirth, and shows the importance of professional management system and the professional skin therapists by the demand of the established customers. Also, appropriate massages and usage of machinery should be done, and the skin therapists should grasp the ages and skin types through conducting professional consultation with their customers since skin massage is not enough to improve skin condition and satisfaction for aging skin. According to the result of grasping the reality of the skin care shops, the reasonable skin care cost was the most important issue among the elderly people, and the skills of the skin therapists were also one of the main issue. As the level of education gets higher, customers thought that the skills of the skin therapists as well as cost affect their choice of skin care shops. The customer satisfaction was higher when they thought that professional consultation has done for them.

Also, high-income customers are more interested in healthy looking skin and continuously invest for their skin care. The younger and high-income customers showed high satisfaction on the effect of products. It is related to the result that the improvement is more visible among the younger people, and the high-income customers spend more money on special care products, which result in the improvement of skin condition.
