When it comes to skincare, resort to an expert skin analysis as your top resource.
Why Skin Analysis Matters
Skin analysis is the portion of a professional facial when your esthetician examines your skin, identifies your skin type and prescribes a personalized at-home regime. The analysis begins after your esthetician thoroughly cleanses your face and removes any trace of dirt or make up. But she isn’t just washing your face. She is also feeling your skin and identifying your level of dryness, roughness or any saggy areas.
Then she brings out the big gun–the magnifying lamp. We all know no one enjoys looking at herself with a magnifying mirror–a front facing selfie cam is hard enough! But your esthetician needs to see you down to your pores. This close look also allows her to thoroughly check your skin for anything that might require an appointment with your dermatologist.
This expert skin analysis is an excellent way to check in on your skin’s health without dealing with the doctor’s office. (However, an esthetician will tell you she is definitely not a replacement for a dermatologist.)
There are lots of kinds of facials and a skin care specialist can tell which one is right for you. Even before she touches you, an expert esthetician can identify your skin type and spot conditions like congested skin, dry aging skin or highly sensitive skin. This is why talented estheticians develop a following–and why we think it pays to develop a relationship with a skin care specialist you like.
A trained professional will also ask you about your diet, any medications you are taking and if you have any skin care concerns. This helps her develop a skin care routine that is effective for you.
After Your Facial
Once your esthetician has analyzed your skin and performed your facial, she will also suggest additional treatments for redness or sun damage. This can be as simple as a face cream for your skin type or a recommendation for a more advanced treatment like a LED facial or chemical peel.
Skin care has embraced every level of science to give you the best skin care options possible. It starts with an in-depth examination of your skin and only gets more personal from there. Your face is your calling card and we think it deserves the best care that technology –and talented professionals can supply. Don’t you agree?
