Aestheticians have taken over the simpler cosmetic procedures, such as laser skin peels and facial hair removal. Other skin conditions are also treated by aestheticians too. If your facial skin is embarrassing because you have acne that will not go away, rosacea, or you blush too easily, there are treatments available to you.
Treating Your Natural Blush
Other people might think it is really cute that you embarrass so easily and turn bright pink or red. You might not like the fact that you change color and let the whole world know that something bothered you. A good treatment for blushing is pulsed light therapy. A licensed aesthetician passes a special bright light over the surface of your skin, which, with ever pulse, shrinks the tiny blood vessels in your face that cause blushing to occur. After a few treatments, these little blood vessels shrivel up and your blushing is less noticeable, if it is there at all.
Treating Acne That Will Not Go Away
The solution for stubborn acne is a laser resurfacing treatment, or several if your acne is really bad. The laser gets down underneath the acne, which is caused by dirt, oil and bacteria. It cleanses and kills the bacteria, and may even cause your acne to pop on its own without the damaging effects of pinching and squeezing. Once the aesthetician has successfully made the acne go away, laser pulses and/or continued resurfacing treatments help keep the acne away and give your skin a healthier, less red and irritated appearance.
Rosacea is treated with both lasers and light skin peels. The lasers shrink and shrivel the blood vessels near the surface of the skin that cause it to look so red all the time. They also help decrease the number of rosacea "pimples". When the skin is no longer red, and the blood vessels are visibly missing from the surface of your skin, the aesthetician will do a light skin peel, either with a laser or with glycolic acid to smooth out the surface of your skin.
Once your skin has lost its embarrassing blotches and hues, you will want to keep it that way. Most of the dermatological treatments provided by an aesthetician, dermatologist, or cosmetic surgeon only last a few months at best. Regardless of who you see, he or she will recommend skin care product lines that will extend the effects of your procedure until it is time for the next treatment session. Use the products faithfully, and you will not have to see your aesthetician sooner than you would like.
