Having a professional cosmetic procedure is one of the most relaxing things you can do, however, the appearance of a skin reaction after the procedure, is not. Experts say that the vast majority of bad outcomes after these procedures are the fault of the patient, who tampers with her own skin before visiting the esthetician. This virtually guarantees a negative result.
Here is a list of 7 things that you should avoid doing before you visit your Esthetician:
You cannot conduct a depilation for 24 hours prior to the procedure
Waxing removes the top layer of skin cells exactly like stiff exfoliation. A cosmetic procedure immediately after it will cause severe irritation to the affected skin.
You cannot touch your face to harsh bristles
Men’s stubble is a real horror for sensitive facial skin. Touching it will cause redness and inflammation. In this condition a cosmetic procedure is contraindicated in the Salon.
You cannot spend time in the Sun the day before your beauty session
Cosmetic procedures can greatly reduce the damage caused by harmful sunlight, for example, pigmentation. But your skin needs to “recharge” after a being in the sun. Otherwise, the skin may have an unexpected reaction to anti-aging and anti-acne ingredients used by your cosmetologist.
You cannot have Botox injections
If you have undergone Botox injections or have had facials, please defer your visit for at least 48 hours. The areas of the recent injections cannot be massaged, otherwise the imposed substance can move to another area. In addition, the provider will hardly fix these skin imperfections until injected sites have worn off for several months.
You cannot undertake deep skin cleansing at home
Squeezing pimples and black spots before heading to the beautician will cause severe inflammation in these areas, and the Esthetician will be unable to help you clean the “residue” which has entrenched itself in infected pores. That is why you must attend a reputable spa and leave the cleaning procedure to the professional.
You cannot have eyelash extensions prior to your treatment
Never rub, use lotions or steam during the first 48 hours due to the glue used for extensions. Otherwise, the money and time spent on eyelash extensions, will be a waste — they will simply come off!
You cannot use exfoliating products
Ingredients like Retinol and glycolic acid, increase skin sensitivity, because they eliminate its topmost layer. The majority of adverse skin reactions associated with this action. If you are not sure of the ingredients, please refrain from using them for a few days before the scheduled procedure.
