Are you on the quest for great skin?
Great skin sometimes can be a struggle to even the best of us - when we think we're doing all the right things like taking our make-up off at night and drinking plenty water their maybe something that's not quite right.
We've got to consider there are extrinsic (environmental) factors that affect our skin - such as medication, stress, pollution and diet and there are intrinsic (internal) factors such as genes, hormones and gut health.
When booking in for a facial never be surprised if the facial 'type' changes from the one you have asked for. This isn't done to be annoying for you, but can be due to general contraindications - some medical issues mean you can not have facials that use electrical equipment - or it may be that a different type of facial will suit your skin needs more. This is why if you are considering joining the quest for great skin to have a full skin analysis facial. This will give you the knowledge of what is needed from me - the skin-care specialist and from you to get to that winning goal.
Remember Results Take Time!
Just like joining a GYM, changing your skincare routine may mean significant results can be slow coming, although sometimes you may find a certain amount of ‘instant gratification’ especially if you skin is dry or dehydrated but, for the most part, true and lasting results come from the quality of the ingredients and formulations that are backed up by scientific evidence and your commitment to the product and commitment to possible lifestyle changes that have been requested.
What can you expect at a skin analysis?
There are a few important steps you will go through at a skin analysis facial.
Firstly you'll undergo a consultation - this allows me to see what medication, health concerns or allergies you may have. It is also an opportunity to ask about your lifestyle and see what skincare routine you currently have.
Examining Your Skin
Your skin will then be double cleansed and analysed under the magnifying glass to assess your skin inch by inch. I always review your information and examine your skin prior to any product recommendation. This is vital to having a successful skincare routine. This step will determine a lot of how we move forward.
Finding Out Your Goals
I ask the right questions in a way that reveals what your concerns are about achieving your goals for healthier skin. I will listen to your concerns over and above my need to sell you a product. (The sign of a true professional)
Addressing Your Questions
Your questions are welcomed and I will do everything I can make sure you feel educated about the process and everything we offer so you can make the best choice for your skin.
The Best Ingredients for Your Needs
The key active ingredients in a product do matter!! You will walk away knowing how ingredient XYZ is the best choice for your skin and will help diminish your skincare issue. The ranges I used are award-winning for their results - so you know you are getting the best products for your skin
Facts will be laid bare and all options provided to you. At this, point, how much you want to spend should be a secondary consideration. Of course how much you spend is important, but getting the right advice and knowing what is available to you and the best approach to take over the coming weeks and months in order to get the results you are wanting should come first.
A Plan Tailored to YOU
It’s time to make a plan. Sometimes going slowly with skincare is the best policy - for example, if you have problematic sensitive skin it is best to treat the sensitivity of your skin first before tacking the problematic acne. This way your skin will react to the acne treatment in a positive way, as your skin has had time to rejuvenate itself. Take baby steps before moving on to more intensive products or treatments. Allow time for your skin to become stronger. This is not a quick fix, this is long-term results.
How to Navigate Your Plan
New skincare and how to use it can feel like a daunting task for anyone. I will lay out exactly how and when to use each product with a customized am/pm routine written just for you. You are never alone and I will be here every step of the way.
I will be reviewing your skin and how you are feeling about your results with every return visit! I want you to feel successful with your progress. When you come for your review and your facials - I may include new steps or treatments in the facial, as your skin starts to heal and change that will give a boost up and keep the momentum moving forward.
So now you have an idea of what a skin analysis and treatment plan may look like what's stopping you from starting your quest once the salons are open again?
