Marks and Scarring
Wrong movements during marks and inappropriate use of tools during facial can cause marks on your skin. Most of the uncertified aestheticians use their fingers for massaging or tools to extract impurities from pores, which in turn cause serious damage to the outer layer of your skin. Untrained aestheticians put unnecessary pressure and do overly vigorous extractions during facial that can cause cuts and bleeding. Too much wrong pressure of tools by unskilled aesthetician can damage your skin. In addition, pointed tools can cause infection, and even scarring in extreme cases. To avoid the chances of such serious consequences of facial and to decrease the chances of infection, make sure that your aesthetician is wearing gloves during the procedure.
Selection of right products in relevance with your skin type is very important for the best facial treatments. Your facialist should be trained and experienced enough to select and recommend the right products for your facial. During normal facial procedures, the aesthetician will likely exfoliate your skin layer to remove dead cells and to bring your freshest layer of skin to the upper surface. However, harsh movements during exfoliation and wrong selection of scrub can leave your skin excessively dry and itchy. In some worst scenarios, you may also experience some dry patches on your skin after a day or two of the treatment. To combat the issue of dryness, use mild fragrance-free moisturizer and avoid sun exposure. Harsh UV rays can further exaggerate the dryness and can cause redness to your skin.
Before undergoing any facial treatment, it is important to learn and discuss about all the possible side effects of facial with your aesthetician.
