Look to 2017 to awaken every skin cell with Customized Skin Care, the new breakthrough Facial Trend. What happens in the treatment room used to be a mystery between you and your esthetician. Today with so many advanced treatments and products, it’s important that you understand your skin and your body. And everyone is different. Gone are the days of one facial for every face. Or one brand of skincare for every face. Or the traditional “European Facial”. The rise of customized skincare has made “off the shelf” completely out of style.
For starters, your largest organ has become the “teller of tales”. If you went out partying for New Year’s Eve and then looked in the mirror on Sunday, you had “hangover face”. A hangover facial would include intense exfoliation, hydration and vitamin penetration. The skin can actually age overnight from too much sugar and dehydration. You see, the crystal ball tells all.
Customized skincare is the ongoing care of the skin that is designed just for you. How does this work? Let’s walk through this new 2017 facial trend.
Where should you start? Customized skin care is a combination of facial treatments, skin care, nutrition, lifestyle and the right products. If you would like us to provide an analysis, feel free to email us!
All of these little tests help the esthetician choose which treatment and products will work the best. Then it can be a trial and error of getting just the perfect combination. For example, when working with an acne client, the original treatment will be to remove the clogged pores and pustules, while later on, the goal is preventing the breakouts. This calls for different treatments and different skin care.
This is very different than most estheticians as we work towards discovering the underlying cause of the problem. First the problem, then the cause, and finally the solution.This is true customized skin care. It can only work if the client and the esthetician work in sync. Below are two case studies of clients.
Female client had been off and on again for almost 3 years. In her mid twenties, she was now getting ready for her marriage. This required serious client negotiations as she had previously followed a course of treatment for a little while, then would go back and eat whatever she wanted. She had also tried the dermatologist route with drugs and creams, without any success.
Despite my warnings that she could be having problems with dairy, sugar and gluten, she didn’t truly believe.
Working on acne skin is tedious, time consuming and you must have a true passion. And the client must be as much of a partner in making the skin better.
This time, she was angelic about her nutrition. She went from wine to vodka, ditched the gluten, dairy and sugar. Combined with twice a week treatments, she started to see marked improvement after month 1. We had four months to her wedding and by that time, her skin was completely flawless. We also had time to work on the scarring and pigmentation which made her skin simply radiant and gorgeous for her wedding day.
This high profile female client is in her late fifties and although she was faithful with having facials, her skin was starting to lose elasticity. While she drank a lot of water, she was very active athletically and was not keeping up with the demands on her body. She upped her water intake, added more oils to her diet and added a ceramide serum to her skin care regimen. (She was already using Environ C-Quence, Skin Script and Dr. Grandel Ampoules. She also was amazing with her nutrition, but was scared of “good oils” like coconut and nuts.
Her goal was to non-surgically give her skin radiance. In this case, the esthetician opted for a rotation treatment with 3 different options. Week #1: She first worked on the muscles and sped up the skin cells with the Microcurrent Facial Lifting. (The client had done a 6 week series the prior 6 months, so her muscles were in great shape, they just needed a little reminder). #Week 3: Micro-Needling was performed to get the collagen and the elasticity back in shape. #Week 4: A Dermaplaning session removed excess dead skin and infused lipid serums into the skin.
Client repeated this for 3 months and then alternated treatments for the 3 months after. Unfortunately, pictures are not available, but all of her friends think that she opted for surgery somewhere. Only we know her secret!
