A professional skin analysis takes places during a facial and is performed by a licensed aesthetician (skin therapist). Prior to the analysis, clients are asked to complete a form that details skin concerns, diet, medications, etc. Your responses to the questions in the form, enables the aesthetician to understand your skin care goals, and any contraindications in order to prescribe the most beneficial treatments and products.
Prior to the skin analysis, the client’s skin is cleansed twice – this enables a clear view of the skin without makeup that can mask uneven skin tone, blackheads, etc. During the skin analysis, the aesthetician uses a magnifying lamp and their hands to touch your face and feel your skin at various angles. The magnifying lamp provides a clear view of your skin. Don’t worry; your eyes will be covered with eye pads to shield them from the bright light.
During the skin analysis, the aesthetician is looking to identify your skin type, skin conditions such as acne, blackheads, sun damage, dehydration, etc, and to understand your lifestyle. He/She will ask pertinent questions and keep you informed as they are analyzing your skin.
After the skin analysis, the aesthetician will inform you of their findings, recommend a treatment plan, and a home care regimen. It is important to follow the treatment plan and home care regimen in order to experience optimal results for your skin.
