What Does It Take To Make A Comprehensive Skin Evaluation?

“I can’t stand these spots!” said my client, Sue, who was very upset about the way her skin looked. And she was right…she was full of unwanted facial hairs, acne, pigmentation irregularities, and concomitant scars. She had never suffered from severe acne as a teenager and her looks were causing her anxiety Upon meeting with her, we immediately started completing forms and a questionnaire. We started by looking at her nutritional habits. Particularly, we asked her how many takeout meals a week she had, at what time was her main meal, how late was her last meal, what were the main groups included in her diet, was she...

A Skin Consultation: Why or Why not?

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...

Beautiful Skin Takes Time

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...

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...

Today, we want to place some emphasis in Olive Oil, since is often a very good idea to keep it simple and natural, especially for those with allergies or a very sensitive skin complexion. Unlike cream and lotion in the market that contains preservatives and alcohol, pure oils have a natural base and I recommend them as wonderful natural skin dry remedies. Natural Oils works as moisturizers and mixed with other ingredientes work as a...

What Should be Discussed During a Laser Hair Removal Consultation?

Laser hair removal is a serious procedure that should always be performed by certified professionals. As a professional, there are certain subjects that should always be discussed during the initial consultation with a client who’s interested in laser hair removal treatment. Everything from understanding a client’s needs to evaluating the skin’s tone, type, or even condition is an important factor in the success of a patient’s laser hair removal process. It goes without saying that every client has his or her own unique skin characteristics – meaning, every procedure will be different from the others. A client should always be granted the opportunity to express what his or...

Laser Treatment for Different Skin Types

Laser treatments have become one of the top preferred techniques in aesthetic medicine. Now, more than ever, patients are taking advantage of the incredible results that laser treatments provide but for some – misleading reputations about the technology have hindered their optimism. When the laser trend had its first debut, laser technicians were not properly trained to administer the procedures on patients with darker skin tones, leaving them with unappealing damaged skin. By darker skin tones, we mean those with an olive, brown, dark brown or black skin tone. Since then, not only are estheticians more qualified but advances in the laser technology have made it less likely...

My Story of How I Got into The Wellness Business

Many of you when coming to my office and looking at all the titles I have on my wall, which include one masters, two post-graduates, and numerous certifications and diplomas, have asked me, “why so many and how did you land on the wellness business?”. To me this is a very legitimate question, given that while I was an undergraduate, I obtained a degree in Economics from an Ivy League University, followed by an MBA from a prestigious university in Canada, and work experience in the largest companies of this country. Furthermore, I went on and obtained a CFA and a CFP®: all indicatives of a very strong...
