Here’s the trouble with skin care products: there are a lot of them. Thousands of creams, lotions, serums, and other skin treatments are out there. And you can find them everywhere — grocery stores, drug stores, department stores, the internet, and many other places. It’s virtually impossible to really determine what actually works and, more importantly, what will actually work for you. Sure, you can keep trying different things, but that gets expensive and sometimes you skin reacts badly to products that are supposed to be helpful. So what can you do? Talk to the experts, that’s what.
When you come for a consultation at Mariposa Medical Spa, we can do more for you than just book appointments for our many exceptional medspa treatments. We can also help you learn about your skin and help determine the right kind of take-home products for you. Our experienced and skilled medical spa staff and our amazing aestheticians know skin. And that means they can help you learn what you need to know so that you can make informed choices to keep that skin healthy.
It’s not always easy to figure out even the most basic things about your skin, such as what type you have. Sure, in some cases, it’s obvious. Lots of dry patches? You probably have dry skin. Problems with shininess and large pores? Chances are you have oily skin. But what if your skin type isn’t that obvious? Or what if you are simply mistaken? That’s where we can help.
For example, did you know that for some people, blemishes and pimples are signs of dry skin and not oily? While that may seem counterintuitive, it actually happens to many people. Inadequate moisturizing can cause skin to “hyperproduce” oil, which results in pimples and blemishes. And while it’s enough oil to cause those problems, it’s not enough natural moisture to nourish your actual facial skin. At home, you might just default to less moisturizing when what you really should be doing it more. That’s just one example of a way that we can help.
Having a professional facial with the accompanying consultation is another terrific advantage of talking to the experts about your skin. Our professional aestheticians will sit with you for an in-depth talk about your skin, any concerns or problems you are having with your skin, and all of the things that can have an impact in skin health — including your diet, lifestyle, age, current beauty regimen and more. Once all of that information have been gathered, your aesthetician will be able to customize your facial so that you get the best results.
Having a professional facial is also the ideal way to deal with skin issues the right way. This is of particular importance for people with clogged pores, black and/or whiteheads, acne, and other blemishes that can be caused by trapped dirt and bacteria. Of course we all know that “popping” pimples is never a good idea, and while there are special store-bought tools made to extract clogs the right” way, it’s still all too easy to press too hard or be too harsh. That can mean scarring and infection. Professional aestheticians are specially trained, and they always have the right tools for the job.
The fresh, clean skin you get from a professional facial is the perfect palette for your new skin care regimen. Our aestheticians can recommend products from our medical-grade product lines or help advise you on other options that you may want to try. So call Mariposa MedSpa today and book your appointment. We can’t wait to help you get your best skin.
