People are looking to cut costs these days and are taking a look at which luxuries they’re able to do without. But there are some luxurious things that are closer to being necessities, and regular appointments with your aesthetician fall into this category. Your skin is your body’s largest organ and requires professional attention and daily medical-grade skin care use.
Seeing a dermatologist at least once a year is important but going in monthly to repair the ongoing damage done by the environment and the aging process is the most practical thing you can do for your skin. Aestheticians are trained to provide treatments to reverse some of the damage with in-office treatments and help you with what you can do at home.
- Eliminate the guesswork — Everyone who’s ever tried to maintain a steady skin care routine on their own must endure a lot of trial and error while figuring out what products will help and not do harm, especially if their skin defies easy categorization. An aesthetician will do a complete analysis of your skin, recommend the best products for your specific skin type, and constantly follow up with you to make sure the products are right for you.
- Get the best results — Facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermaplanes and all other treatments should only be performed by a licensed aesthetician!
- Detox your skin — Daily cleansing and weekly exfoliation at home are the first line of defense against dirt, pollutants, and other environmental aggressors. But your aesthetician can speed up the process with antioxidant-rich creams, vitamin C and retinols as well as facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion and extraction of pores, pimples and blackheads.
- Enjoy better mental health — The relaxation you feel when you’re being pampered and especially during a facial massage provided by a trained professional is enormously beneficial to fighting the effects of stress, which are even more damaging to your brain than they are for your skin!
