Why Is It Important To Have a Skin Analysis Before Your Facial?

Woman Receives Skin Analysis at Ciel Spa

Have you ever been to an esthetician and leave amazed at the fact they seem to know exactly what is going on with your skin? Before any facial, a professional esthetician should perform a skin analysis to better familiarize themselves with your particular skin, asses the condition of it, and look for any underlying issues. Their skin analysis helps them form a diagnosis in order to provide proper treatment and at-home regimen recommendations.

If you ever wondered how they do this, then keep on reading…

Many external factors affect your skin. So your esthetician must take the following into consideration:

  • Does your skin react to sudden temperature changes?
  • Are you exposed to the sun often?
  • Do you live in an area that is highly polluted?
  • Do you exercise or play sports that cause you to sweat?
  • Do you smoke or surround yourself with people who do regularly?
  • Do you get enough sleep?
  • Are you stressed a lot?
  • Do you have any allergies?

Second, it is important to look at the face and divide it into five sections. Dividing the face into different observation areas allows the esthetician to better target the specific needs of certain areas and provide a more intensive and effective treatment protocol.

  • Forehead
  • Contour of the Eyes
  • Nose and Cheeks
  • Lower Face and Lips
  • Neck and Decollete

Each area is then visually (examined by the visible eye) and tactilely (physically touched by the fingers and hands) diagnosed.
