Why You Should See an Esthetician
An esthetician is a trained and licensed skin care technician. They are experts in skin care and belong to a professional community dedicated to helping people get the healthiest, most beautiful skin possible. They have a strict code of ethics and strive to live up to it and give their clients the best care available.
An esthetician is not a dermatologist—a skin doctor—so they can’t prescribe medicine for skin conditions, but they are very skilled in managing many skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation. They also offer benefits that dermatologists don’t offer. Here are some of the main reasons why you should see an esthetician.
Get Personal Attention for Your Skin
An esthetician’s sole focus is on you and your skin. For the time you are visiting your esthetician, you will discuss your skin and seek to find solution to the problems that are bothering you, prevent new problems from coming up, and address issues that you may not yet be aware of.
Time spent with an esthetician tends to be longer than the time spent with a dermatologist or any other doctor, giving you lots of opportunities to bring up all your concerns and discuss the best ways to approach them. And because it’s usually social time—estheticians are also masters at helping you feel comfortable and welcome—you will feel more comfortable bringing up things you might not otherwise discuss.
Get Expert Advice on Skin Care
Of course, what skin treatment the esthetician gives is only a small fraction of the care and attention your skin needs. But an esthetician can have an even bigger impact on the health and appearance of your skin through the advice they give on what skin care products and techniques work best. Their advice draws not only on their own training, but also on the combined experience of their patients. They have recommended products to patients for years and talked about the results. They know when products really live up to the hype and when they don’t.
Access to Unique Procedures
You can do things like facials at home, but there are also many products and procedures you won’t have access to on your own. An esthetician can help you find just the treatment your skin needs and perform it so that you can have the great-looking skin you desire.
An Opportunity to Relax
How often in your life do you have the opportunity to just lean back and let someone else take care of you? This is something estheticians do all the time. Stress is damaging to your skin, and part of their dedication to your skin’s health is a commitment to helping you relax. Enjoy the luxuriousness of being fussed over and the positive impact it has on your skin and overall health.
