Beware of the “Skin Experts”

beware the skin experts
Who do you go to nowadays for your skin care with so many different options available? What’s the difference between a plastic surgeon, the Arbonne rep, the women at department store’s cosmetic counter, a dermatologist or an esthetician? All of them claim they offer the best skin care options so which one do you trust your skin to?

Obviously, The MLM Marketers have a somewhat strong belief in the products they sell but they also have an objective behind it; to sell their product for a car, vacation, or extra income from home. They require no extensive training to sell these products. The upside, we love to hear word of mouth from our friends but it’s no guarantee that what works for one person is going to work for you.

The Cosmetic Counter Salesperson: These people are only trained by the company that they are selling product for. Most of these sales people have no background or training in skincare. You are leaving your skin in the hands of someone’s skewed and limited view of what works.

The Plastic Surgeon: Plastic surgeons are trained in plastic surgery. They have no formal training in skin care. Their objective is to know anatomy, cut tissue to pull and tighten, enlarge or shrink. They can learn about skin care in conferences and magazines or from reps in the industry on top of their training in surgery. Most plastic surgeons who are aware of the trends are seeking additional training because they know that plastic surgery is on the decline and non-invasive procedures are on the rise.

The Esthetician: Most estheticians are trained in the basics of how to balance the skin, whether it’s oily, dry, clogged, acne prone, dehydrated. However, a paramedical esthetician is trained in working into the deeper, cellular level of the skin; the layers which creates change to the skin. When choosing your esthetician, make sure to look for a paramedical if you want to see more long term change in your skin for aging, pigmentation, redness, elasticity, dryness, acne and sun damage. A traditional esthetician only does facials and is missing the component of laser work which is beyond the surface layer.
Paramedical estheticians are trained to do chemical peels and some laser work but a lot of them believe facials are so last week and are missing the boat on what makes up good, healthy skin. Facials are not beneath anyone, they are an important component to keeping your skin healthy. To have achieve a truly healthy skin balance, both upper and lower layers of the skin MUST be addressed.

THE RN: A a lot of RN’s are being hired by Plastic Surgeons to do medical esthetic work. They have no formal training in skincare however they are trained through certification courses in lasers or are trained on the job. Due to the fact that they lack experience in esthetics, they are very limited in their approach to the skin so don’t be fooled by the RN after their name, in this case it’s just letters.

The Dermatologist: They are extensively trained in skin DISEASE and have recently branched out into skin health and non-invasive procedures. They do not work on skin closely, such as: cleansing and hydrating. They mostly will have laser to help with veins, brown spots. More current dermatologists are hiring estheticians to provide the changing needs as the dermatologist does not have the proper training. Their visits are typically 5 minutes and their preferred method of treatment are pharmaceuticals: topical or oral.

MEDICAL SPAS: These will have 1or 2 lasers and sell one medical skin care line as well as do medical peels. The main problem with his approach is that they are missing the entire foundations of what healthy skin is built on…the aesthetic and balancing aspect of skin.
