Why you need to do your research for skin treatments

It can be very easy to get swept up in all of the latest celebrity skin treatments and jump on board the first skin treatment that you see. However, it is important to remember that every skin type is different and it’s reactions to various treatments.

This is why you must do your research to prevent:

  • Disappointment by not receiving the result you were hoping for.
  • Wasting money on treatments that were never going to work for you.
  • Possible reactions to your skin.

Here are some things to consider when deciding on beginning a skin treatment regime:

Know your skin: Do you have sensitive skin or have you previously had some sort of reaction to creams or treatments? Or have you had a skin cancer removed?  It’s important to fully understand your skin and the possible reactions you may experience. There is a lot of information available on the internet about procedures and skin types but it is strongly advisable to actually go and have a consultation with a qualified skin technician who will be able to answer the questions relevant to you and your skin.

What do you want from your treatment? There is a lot of different options available when it comes to having ‘healthy skin’ so you need to be specific about what EXACTLY you are wanting out of your treatment. Are you wanting an even skin tone? Scarring removed? Lines removed? Tattoo removed? Depending on what you want will depend on which treatment is suitable for you and will give you the results you’re looking for.

Research skin clinics: Sometimes the skin clinic closest to you is not the most qualified which is why it’s imperative to do your research when it comes to choosing your skin clinic. Have a list of questions written down before you go for your consultation so you don’t forget to ask anything which may be on your mind. There is no harm in meeting with a few different clinics to get an understanding of the process, the person who will be doing the procedure, the facilities and the qualifications of the clinic.
