What To Expect From Your Skincare Consultation
When it comes to skincare, the options for products and treatments seem endless. Everywhere you look, there are recommendations from your friends, influencers on social media, and celebrities. It can all get a bit overwhelming.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
A customized skincare consultation takes the guesswork out of your skincare regimen and lets you know the right products to use for your needs. When you get a skincare consultation, this is what you can expect.
YOUR SKIN ASSESSMENT
During a consultation with us at Fort Wayne Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, you’ll meet with one of our licensed aestheticians. Aestheticians have specialized skincare knowledge and can perform treatments that make skin beautiful and healthy. Our aestheticians know that looking your best can help you feel your best.
During a skincare consultation, you and your aesthetician will review any aesthetic skin issues you have such as acne, acne scarring, wrinkles, brown spots, fine lines, or texture issues and to discuss your current skincare regimen. You’ll also discuss anything else you want to improve about your skin.
THE BEST PRODUCTS FOR YOU
Your skincare consultation will also cover what kind of skin you have — normal, dry, oily, combination, or sensitive. Determining your skin type is an important step since your skin type determines what cleansers, serums, and moisturizers will work best for you.
People with normal, balanced skin don’t feel too oily or dry throughout the day. People with normal skin aren’t usually prone to breakouts.
Dry skin, however, is flaky, tight, irritated, and feels rough to the touch. Oily skin feels greasy, produces excess oil, and is prone to breakouts. Combination skin is oily in the t-zone but is balanced on the cheeks and jawline. Sensitive skin is inflamed, irritated, and sometimes red.
Once your aesthetician knows a bit more about your skin and your personal goals, she will walk you through the products you should use to create the perfect skincare regimen for you.
At Fort Wayne Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, we carry the best, most effective medical-grade skincare brands and our own private label skincare products. No matter your skin type, we have products that will work for you.
