Among all the organs of the human body, the skin happens to be the largest. It makes sense to want to maintain it at its best, since it is arguably the first thing anyone notices about you. The demand for beautiful, flawless skin has paved the way for a whole industry. Aestheticians are the people whose work is to make 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. Some aestheticians work in spas and salons while others referred to as medical aestheticians work with doctors in medical offices. Since you cannot trust just anyone with 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. This could range from mere relaxation and pampering, to clearer skin. Therefore, it is very important to let your aesthetician know what you expect to achieve, since it will enable them to perform according to expectations. Some of your expectations could be personal in nature for instance preferring particularly gentle touches or silence during treatment. Make it clear to the aesthetician whether you have any skin issues to avoid working out with bad reactions from the products used. 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. The reason for going to an aesthetician is to improve your skin’s condition. Consider yourself to be at the wrong place if your aesthetician’s face is full of blackheads. As an aesthetician, he/she should be on top of the latest advancements in the skin care industry by advancing their education in skin care, reading publications and joining a professional organization. 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. The aesthetician should also inform you of the potential benefits and risks of the treatment, what should happen during the treatment and address any questions you may have.
