A Skin Consultation: Why or Why not?

on Monday, 27 April 2015. Posted in Skin Rejuvenation, Skin tightening, Skin Care

Many of us when we go to a spa or center for preventive and maintenance skin treatments, do not go through a thorough skin evaluation. Those types of consultations are regularly done in the medical world when we go for an examination to treat or prevent disease, but not so much in the aesthetics world. However, comprehensive consultations can help us obtain information on a client’s history, lifestyle, preferences, and more. With this information in hand along with before & after pictures, roadmaps composed of both treatments at the office, and cosmeceuticals at home, can be designed to serve as a guide and to decide on a more accurate course of action which will ultimately lead to better results.

So how can we gather this information? Besides comprehensive questionnaires regarding lifestyle, history, and preferences in terms of dislike and likes; before & after pictures can serve as a great aide to compare and evaluate results. The use of diagnostic equipment allows us to gather crucial information. Finally, putting it all together will allow us to establish a more accurate action plan and maintenance routine.

Beautiful Skin Takes Time

Many people come to our offices wanting to improve a visible skin condition immediately. While this approach works, I would like to introduce a slower but more effective method, whereby we first work with what’s causing it and then we improve the symptom. For example, some clients come to us with a dark spot on their face (hyperpigmentation). In the past, we would usually work that condition with a specific method, be it the e-matrix or a peel. However, we now want to look at it differently by determining the cause and stabilizing the skin. After we have done this, then we would proceed to fix the visible sign of whatever is going on.

Our skin is composed of different layers and cells that all communicate among themselves. The keratinocyte is the main cell that maintains communication with all the other ones. When any of the cells is not working well, then different things can happen. For example, if the keratinocyte can not deposit the pigment received from the melanocyte evenly throughout the skin, then we see the spots on our skin. While there are many reasons why a specific situation can happen, including hormonal reasons, beyond our control and impact as skin care specialists, if we can limit how they affect a specific cell on our skin, then we can stabilize the skin condition and have an influence on the future health of your skin

The New Women's Revolution

The New Women's Revolution

Many years ago, women were not able to vote, and did not enjoy the same rights as men, but thanks to the women's revolution more than 50 years ago, things have changed. Even though there has never been a woman president, yet there has been a black president, women now run many businesses and are making important decisions in our everyday lives. A CFA friend of mine was explaining to me how future trends predict that women will be making most spending decisions in approximately 20 years from now. Truly things have come a long way. It was the revolutionary movement started many years ago that has allowed this, and that we are thankful for. Yes, that has been very much my particular case, because thanks to such event, I have had access to benefits available in society for which I am sure that simply making a checkmark under women minority made the difference.

The pendulum then shifted, and maybe a little too far for my taste… Women in America had opportunities that were unimaginable before, yet they had to compete under men's rules. As a result, they were forced to bring out their masculine side almost 100% of the time to survive. They had to wear suits and make only left-brain decisions. Many of them postponed womanly desires, such as having babies, so late in life that they were not able to conceive. There was a real confusion going on between male and female energies. This personal breakthrough was what motivated me to open my business and embark in this fascinating entrepreneurial path. (Med Aesthetics Miami helps people take care of themselves and offers services such as laser hair removal, skin tightening, acne treatments, anti-aging, massages, and more.). In my case, it was when I left corporate America that I fully embraced the joy of having children, and was able to function with my left-brain, but most importantly, I finally was able to incorporate my right-brain as well.

The Wonders from Nature!

Incorporating the very best of nature in your daily routine can be simple yet the results can be generous to your skin.

When cleansing and moisturizing your skin, it is important that you keep in mind that oil dissolves oil. Your skin naturally lubricates itself with oil. Your skin naturally produces oil because it needs it. In our previous blog we talked about natural Oils, in specific Olive Oil that is fantastic to keep skin moisturized and facial skin free of wrinkles.

We introduced it as a cleanse and moisturizer, as a scrub and as a mask. Some of the most popular products, promoted as “natural” solutions, even incorporate olive oil as a key ingredient in their formulas.
