As we’ve told you before, there are some treatments that should only be performed by a doctor or licensed aesthetician. Here are a few more from the list:
Laser hair removal: Even if it’s not for the purpose of skin rejuvenation, laser hair removal is still a laser treatment. That means it must be performed by a professional for optimal patient safety. The aestheticians at our Inland Empire plastic surgeon’s office know how to apply laser technology accurately and safely for the most effective hair removal possible.
Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion, also known as skin resurfacing, is a procedure that removes the top layer of the skin with a natural diamond chip wand. It promotes accelerated cellular growth, and leaves the skin soft and smooth. That’s why so many patients with sun damaged skin, rough skin, acne pit scars and wrinkles undergo this popular treatment. However, it must be performed by a licensed aesthetician. There is a specific series of treatments that must be performed, and the person performing them must know how to handle the mild redness that commonly occurs following microdermabrasion.
Micropeel: A popular skin treatment because of its versatility, micropeel is also commonly performed at day spas. Regardless, it’s important to only obtain it from a licensed aesthetician. The cleansing and exfoliation portion of micropeel may be relatively gentle, but the acid application must be customized for your skin type – and no one wants to know what the wrong kind of acid would feel like on their skin.
