Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies. Wanting your skin to look flawless makes perfect sense because it is perhaps the first thing anyone notices about you. Following this quest to achieve beautiful skin, a whole industry has risen. Aestheticians are the people in charge of professionally making people’s skin gorgeous. When skin care treatments began being popular in the US, facials were one of the few techniques available. Over the years however, aestheticians have broadened their profession. Aestheticians nowadays offer a wider array of services such as; laser resurfacing treatments, removing unwanted hair, applying chemical peels and cosmetics, micro-dermabrasion procedures and tinting eyebrows. While some aestheticians work in spas and salons, others referred to as medical aestheticians work alongside doctors in medical offices. Since not just anyone should be allowed to work on your skin, especially when lasers and chemicals are involved, it is imperative to choose an aesthetician wisely. Here are some guidelines on picking an aesthetician wisely.
First, you should adequately make up your mind on what you intend to get out of the treatment. Perhaps your intentions could be relaxing and getting pampered or getting clearer skin. In order for your aesthetician to perform according to your expectations, it is necessary to inform them what your expectations are beforehand. Such expectations could include informing them of any personal preferences such as not stocking during the treatment or preferring gentle touches. To avoid bad reactions to the products used, make it clear to the aesthetician beforehand if you have any skin issues such as sensitive skin. Additionally, since service prices vary widely from location to location, make up your mind on how much you are willing to spend.
Do some research on your aesthetician. Improving how your skin looks is the reason for visiting an aesthetician. Consider yourself to be at the wrong place if your aesthetician’s face is full of blackheads. Through continuous skin care education, reading trade publications and joining a professional organization, aestheticians can be on top of the latest advancements in the industry. You should be asked to fill out a client lifestyle for when you walk into your aesthetician’s office, with questions on the skincare products you use, known allergies, general health and medications. If they do not ask such questions, then you should avoid them conducting any laser therapy or chemical treatments at all costs. Also, the aesthetician should clearly communicate the potential benefits and risks of the treatment, what will happen during the treatment and address your questions to satisfaction.
