Professional Skin Care Helps Keep Your Skin Youthful and Beautiful

Professional skin care is done by an esthetician who has been schooled and trained in all the therapies and products that will maintain the youthful skin you already have or to rejuvenate your skin. Some of the techniques used by an esthetician are extractions, facials, chemical peels, exfoliation, and waxing.

Extractions and Facials
When you have an impacted or clogged pore, the esthetician will use very gentle pressure to remove the sebum. If necessary, he or she can use a metal extraction tool to lift out the sebum that is causing the inflammation. Another tool that can be used is a lancet to make a small incision or opening for the sebum to be removed. Sebum is in all your skin except the bottoms of your feet and the palms of your hands. It is the substance that protects your skin, keeps it moist, and has properties that slow down the aging of the skin and protects your skin from cancer as well. Facials are one of the treatments most often performed by estheticians. During a facial, all makeup is removed and the skin is cleaned. From there, a mask may be put on to clean even deeper and a facial massage can be performed to smooth and relax tense and stressed out muscles. Facials can be scheduled regularly, depending on the client’s skin and budget.

Peels, Exfoliation, and Waxing
Chemical peels are a type of exfoliation treatment and can be done in a light peel, medium peel, and a deep peel. A dermatologist will have to perform a deep peel. This treatment is used to address and treat issues such as sun damage, acne scarring, aging, and to even out the skin tone. Exfoliation is another treatment available from an esthetician that removes dead skin cells. Brushes and scrubbing are used to begin with. Waxing is a procedure where warmed, soft wax is spread on the skin in a thin layer. Cloth strips are then applied and once the wax has hardened, the wax and the cloth are pulled off, removing the hair caught in the wax. Professional skin care can help bring back your skin’s youthful vitality or help you maintain the beautiful skin you have.
