Tips For Best Skincare Results
Facial skincare treatment outcomes can be greatly affected both positively and negatively by factors outside the treatment room.
Remember that your skin is a living organ, influenced by many internal and external factors.
In a treatment we are working to create the best possible environment for your skin cells to achieve peak performance, by stimulating skin processes, correcting any imbalances in the skin function and supplying the correct active ingredients for your skin to use to maintain itself in the best balance possible. Maintaining this balance after treatment will ensure results continue to be optimised.
To get the best possible results for your skin, taking some steps to make sure you are not working against your treatment is essential.
Positive influences on your results:
- Using the correct recommended homecare. You take care your skin every day, we only get to treat it on average once a month. Using the recommended homecare is like bringing your therapist home!
- Maintain hydration by drinking plenty of water and reducing caffeine/alcohol/ fizzy drinks, -general good health greatly influences skin function, nutrition, sleep quality and stress all play a big part in skin appearance. Remember your self-care shows in your skin.
- Scheduling appropriately, sticking to your recommended treatment schedule will produce the best results.
Negative influences on your results:
- Poor healing due to any factor, illness, lack of sleep and some medications will affect the results you can expect. Your personal consultation will cover any issues.
- Poor health especially gut health and immune system issues, if you have any health reasons to expect a reduced outcome this will be discussed at your consultation and your treatment programme adjusted accordingly.
- Inappropriate homecare products can work against the treatment, use only the recommended products
- Skin-unfriendly lifestyle practices such as smoking, regular alcohol intake, excess caffeine and sun exposure will all have a detrimental affect on your treatment outcome
- Overtreating, especially with exfoliation
