You know what’s better than gorgeous skin? Gorgeous skin you can take care of on your own. The first step: finding a skincare specialist to help get you started.
It may be tempting to default to using over the counter products and trying every $8 face wash and moisturizer until you find something you think works for you… Or maybe not.
Seeking guidance from an expert in professional skin care, such as the team at Southlake Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, can help you hone in on the products and treatments you need to actually make a difference in your skin!
Below, we’ll discuss the primary benefits of seeking a professional to help with your skin care.
Professional Skin Care Knowledge
Because specialists have research-based information about skin care, they’ll have access to the best products and treatments available.
Professional Skin Care Experience
A skincare specialist can help you determine which products will give you the best results based on your individual skin type, skin tone, and overall goal. This is especially true if you suffer from specific skin conditions (like melasma, for example).
Plus, they can recommend the ultimate power treatment combos to rejuvenate your unique complexion! Let’s say, perhaps, you’ve already identified your major skin concerns and are searching for a specific treatment, such as a facial surgery or even simply a laser treatment for overall rejuvenation. A professional skin care expert can help you determine what steps to take before AND after treatment (including your at-home regimen AND complementary med spa treatments) to help enhance your results and ensure they last a long time.
Professional Skincare Product Recommendations
Phenomenal results don’t come from subpar products, but on your own, it may be hard to figure out which products fall below the bar. That’s where your skincare specialist comes in. Specialists take your skincare needs and transform them into a combination of medical-grade products that are proven to work.
If you haven’t yet considered medical-grade products, we think you should. Medical-grade skincare products go beyond the basic over-the-counter (OTC) products you see at your local drugstore. How? It’s all about the active ingredients, the concentration of those ingredients, and the rigorous clinical testing process.
Important Questions to Ask During a Professional Skin Care Appointment
All skincare specialists are not the same. Some have more experience than others; some care more about the money than helping; and some will do everything they can to rescue your skin (not all heroes wear capes).
So to find a specialist for professional skin care who’s excited to guide you toward great skin, here are a few questions you should ask them before you get started. We promise this will save you some hassle in the long run.
How much experience do you have?
Experience, experience, experience. It’s so important, yet people tend to look past it. Anytime you visit a skincare specialist, always ask how many years they have under their belt. That way you know they’re guiding you toward the right direction.
What are the best professional skin care products for my skin type?
If this question isn’t followed by more questions from your specialist, you may not get the answer you’re after. Here’s why: to find the best products for your skin type, a specialist has to understand your skin type. This happens through examination and further questions. Without extra information, a specialist clearly won’t have the tools needed to recommend the right products.
Why are you recommending these products?
Don’t just take professional recommendations at face value. When you ask for the reasoning behind their recommendation, you can gain important insight into the product ingredients and how they can benefit your skin. Simply asking “why” can also open the door for a specialist to prove how knowledgeable he or she is.
What kind of results can I expect?
You never want to expect a miracle, and a trustworthy skincare specialist won’t try to sell you on one. At Southlake Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, our specialists offer detailed information about how your skin will improve. We may even recommend aesthetic treatments (like dermal fillers) to really boost your results.
