Different types of facial treatments in beauty clinics, have different ways of working, function, and goals, and need to be adapted to the condition of each person’s facial skin. Before deciding to undergo one form of treatment, find out in advance about the benefits and procedures so that you can get the maximum benefit.
Choices and Risks of Facial Treatment at a Beauty Clinic
Here are some treatment options in beauty clinics and their risks:
Dermabrasion is a procedure to improve the surface of problematic skin, by triggering the growth of new skin, so it looks smoother and more even. Make no mistake, the procedure is not intended to treat skin with severe conditions, such as burn scars, birthmarks, moles, or skin with congenital defects. Conditions that can be helped by dermabrasion are scars such as smallpox, acne scars, or scarring.
Microdermabrasion procedure uses crystals that function to exfoliate the skin. Problems with the skin, such as spots that arise and dull skin, can be overcome this way. This treatment will give the best results if you do it after 4-6 times. At each treatment session, the beautician takes about 30 minutes to do it.
After this treatment is done, do not be surprised if the skin is reddish and also looks dry. Redness and dry skin experienced will disappear by itself after 24 hours. During this time, it is recommended not to use makeup at all. In addition to redness and dry skin, other risks that can occur after microdermabrasion are scaly, swollen skin. Your skin can also be more sensitive to sunlight, so you should avoid sun exposure within a few days after undergoing microdermabrasion. To protect your skin from exposure to ultraviolet rays, you can use a facial moisturizer that contains SPF, or special facial sunscreen.
If your skin has problems with pigmentation (uneven color) or acne, you can take chemical peeling treatment at a beauty clinic. With a special sponge, your problematic face will be applied with certain chemicals. The chemical liquid used in this treatment is useful in helping the process of exfoliation. Dead skin cells will peel off, lift up and will be replaced with new skin cells.
In this procedure, three different types of chemical peels are divided depending on the level of depth of the peeling skin layer. The three types of peeling are:
Shallow peels (superficial chemical peels)
Medium peeling (medium chemical peeling)
Deep chemical peeling
Shallow peeling is a treatment performed to remove dead skin cells in the outermost layer of skin or epidermis. In this procedure, the peeling effect is only temporary, so it needs to be done routinely. The skin will feel tight for several hours after this treatment is done.
This treatment is done to remove dead skin cells up to the top of the dermis. When this treatment is performed, the skin may feel sore and after that, the skin will appear reddish or somewhat dark for about one and a half months. You need to do this treatment 1-2 times a year to get maximum results.
Specifically for this option, local anesthesia or anesthesia needs to be given because treatment will be carried out to the lower dermis layer. The skin will experience flaking and appear red after peeling. Redness of the skin can occur for up to three months, while swelling can occur for up to two weeks. This procedure can only be done once and does not need to be repeated.
Although the results are promising, there are risks that you should know about. The skin will usually become more sensitive to sunlight, there is a chance that the skin can permanently change color to darker or lighter. In rare cases, the possibility of skin scarring.
As the name implies, this treatment method is to fill in the basins on wrinkled skin, skin folds, even the lips, to give full effect. Types of dermal fillers, different, some have a temporary effect, but some are permanent.
At the beauty clinic, the doctor will inject filler material into the face and do a gentle massage. The treatment process lasts for 30 minutes to one hour. During the day after the treatment, your face may experience swelling, which will generally slowly subside. The treating doctor will also advise you to avoid sunlight and to avoid consuming hot drinks one day after treatment.
Itchy, bruised, and swollen skin can be a side effect of a permanent type of dermal filler. Other possible lumps will arise under the skin, but this case is rare. Another effect that may occur, but is considered rare, is that fillers can close blood vessels so that they may cause lung embolism, blindness, or tissue death. You can also experience allergies that lead to cases of anaphylaxis, which is a severe allergic reaction that can be life threatening.
In addition to the three procedures above, the beauty clinic also provides Botox injections and laser resurfacing. Both of these treatments, can be a solution in removing wrinkles on the face.
If you want to do skin and body care at a beauty clinic, make sure the treatment is carried out by a competent dermatologist or beauty doctor. Continue to prioritize safe care for health, not just to change the appearance for the better.
