Frequently Asked Questions

1Why should I see an aesthetician?

Aesthetics is the application of various treatments to the skin, to maintain its health and vitality. As an Aesthetician I have extensively studied what the skin is comprised of, it's functions and how it responds to outer influences. I am here to guide you on how skin functions, proper procedures, product usage and to simplify a home care system that is easy for you to use to maintain health skin.

A variety of treatments and products are used to protect skin from environmental hazards and combat fine lines, wrinkles, and a dull, uneven skin tone. Aestheticians are also skilled in managing conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, and dry skin, to name just a few. Other services commonly performed are body treatment such as salt or sugar scrubs, moisturizing or slenderizing body wraps, hair removal techniques such as waxing or threading, lash and brow tinting and hand/foot treatments to rejuvenate the skin. And finally, skin care treatments are wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating.

2What’s the difference between dermatology, cosmetology, and aesthetics?

Dermatology is a branch of the medical profession, practiced by licensed physicians who specialize in disorders of the skin. Esthetic practice specifically excludes diagnosis, prescription, or any other service, procedure, or therapy that requires a medical license. If you’re being treated by a dermatologist, your aesthetician can provide complementary and support therapies. In addition, Aestheticians are trained to recognize early signs of many medical conditions affecting the skin, and will refer you to a dermatologist in such a case.

Cosmetology is the study of beauty treatments including nail care, hair care and styling, makeup application, skin care and more. Esthetics is one branch of cosmetology; some Aestheticians work in other branches of cosmetology in addition to their skin care practice.

3What about home care?

Much of the success of maintaining a visible improvement after treatment depends on consistent, correct home care. Your aesthetician is trained to select the products that will most benefit your skin, and to advise you on how to maintain your professional results between visits. Like medical or dental care, following the right daily regimen at home is essential if you are to get the most out of your visits to a professional.

What Next?

It is always a good idea to schedule a consultation appointment prior to your first treatment, especially if you are new to esthetic treatments. During a consultation, we will complete an extensive intake form, and most likely do a cleansing of the skin followed by a detailed skin analysis. This will give us the information needed to create an individualized treatment plan, both for a series of professional treatments and recommendations for products you can use at home.
