I know over the years we have been roughing it out on our own when it comes to our skin. We choose to ask our peers for skincare tips and tricks rather than seeking professional help. What is that about?
Did you know that you could save yourself a ton in money if you were to visit an esthetician monthly or seasonally for your skin concerns?
An esthetician you say? I know, I know, we have been conditioned to believe that seeing an esthetician or going to the spa is a place of luxury where rich women go to sip champagne while being pampered. That may have been somewhat true over 20 years ago, but the industry has made a significant shift over the last 10 years where the focus is now on skin health, as products and gadgets are now easily accessible to consumers.
What is an esthetician and why should you see one?
An esthetician, also called a Skin Care therapist, specializes in the beautification of the skin. Unlike a Dermatologist, an esthetician cannot diagnose nor can they prescribe medications, instead they are able to perform facials, laser hair removal, superficial chemical peels, body treatments and other non-invasive skin care treatments.
Here are 5 reasons you should see an esthetician
- Expert skin analysis
An esthetician will thoroughly analyze your skin to determine your specific skin type and it’s needs. Knowing your skin type makes it easier to choose products that best suit your skin needs.
- Professional recommendation
Estheticians are trained in products and product ingredients; therefore, you will be able to get a customized home care regimen specific to your needs.
- Monthly facials and treatments
Estheticians can perform a variety of facials using clinically tested and proven modalities to achieve the best results. Monthly facials are necessary to boost collagen, cellular turn over and keep our skin looking healthy. Estheticians are also known for treating acne, hyperpigmentation and other skin conditions using chemical peels, micro-needling as well as lasers in a safe and clean environment.
