Licensed aestheticians have been trained on how to properly perform congested pore extractions, under the safest, most hygienic environment. This prevents any of the complications mentioned above. During a facial treatment, performed by your licensed aesthetician, your skin is cleansed, exfoliated and pretreated with a steamer and hot towels. This facilitates the removal of impurities, oils and other skin debris. After the extraction portion is done, serums and other products are applied to the skin to enhance the effects of the facial treatment. This minimizes the incidence of breakouts, normalizes the sebaceous gland’s (oil gland) activity and improves your skin’s condition. Your skin care specialist can also guide you on the skin care products you should use at home to adequately maintain your skin in a healthy state.
I hope my answer is helpful to you. If you have any more questions do not hesitate to contact me; I’m here for you.
Many people, however, are not aware that even relatively minor changes in temperature during out Florida winters can also have a huge impact. Fall/winter environmental factors cause the skin a high level of dehydration which in turn, is manifested with the signs you mentioned, as well as excessive dryness, peeling and even cracking of the skin.
These manifestations increase skin sensitivity and make it look dull and irritated. Fine lines and wrinkles can also become deeper and more obvious due to the lack of humectation. Often, I recommend my patients switch to a richer moisturizer or to add a hydrating serum containing essential lipids and/or hyaluronic acid and ceramides. These key compounds attract and lock water into the skin boosting its hydration during the times of low temperatures. Hydrating facial treatments like Hydrafacial are also ideal; not only to keep the skin clean and well hydrated, but to also rejuvenate the skin and give it a healthy glow. I hope my response is helpful to you.
