Skin analysis is the part of a professional facial where the esthetician determines your skin type, skin conditions, and the best course of treatment. A professional esthetician will have a overall lookout for oily, congested skin with breakouts also dry, dull, aging skin or fine lines and wrinkles. Then begins the facial with a thorough cleansing, using cotton pads, esthetician wipes or sponges. This removes all traces of make-up, which can mask blackheads, uneven skin tone, broken capillaries. During the cleansing, the esthetician will feel more things with her hands such as extreme dryness or if your skin is firm or saggy etc.
Next comes the in-depth skin analysis, which takes place through a magnifying lamp surrounded by a bright light. It allows the esthetician to clearly see your skin in detail, including all the things that are masked by make-up or are too small for the eye to easily see. During the skin analysis, the esthetician should tell you what she sees, including what is positive about your skin, and how it can be improved. She will recommend what kind of treatment, based on what she sees. Also, skin conditions including acne, blackheads, whiteheads, wrinkles, sun damage, dehydration, wrinkles, and poor elasticity also require unique facial treatments. Our skin is a lot more complicated than it appears, and different people have different reactions to the same products. It is always advisable to get an expert's opinion about what to use and what not to.
