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 familiarize themselves with your particular skin better, assess its condition, and look for any underlying issues. Skin analysis helps them form a diagnosis to provide proper treatment and at-home regimen recommendations. Ever wondered how they do this? Keep on reading!
Skin Analysis Methodology & Protocols
Many external factors affect your skin. So your esthetician must consider the following:
- Are you under stress?
- Do you get enough sleep?
- Do you have any allergies?
- Are you exposed to the sun often?
- Do you live in a highly polluted area?
- Does your skin react to sudden temperature changes?
- Do you exercise or play sports that cause you to sweat?
- Do you smoke or surround yourself with people who regularly do?
Also, 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 target the specific needs of certain areas better and provide a more intensive and effective treatment protocol:
- Eye contour areas
- Nose and cheeks
- Lower face and lips
- Neck and neckline
Each area is then visually (examined by the visible eye) and tactilely (physically touched by the fingers and hands) diagnosed.
