Esthetician vs Dermatologist:Who
Should You See for Your Skin?
There are many skin care professionals you can
consult with about how to care for your skin but the two most popular would be
either a licensed esthetician or dermatologist. I recently had a client come to
see me for a facial treatment, and during our consultation she told me, “I’ve
gone to see everyone for my skin and haven’t got much result. This is why I’m
here to see you today.”
But what are the main differences between seeing a
dermatologist for your skin versus seeing an esthetician?
Hugging therapy is definitely a powerful way of healing
Research shows that hugging (and also laughter) is extremely effective at
healing sickness, disease, loneliness, depression, anxiety and stress.
Research shows a proper deep hug, where the hearts are pressing
together, can benefit you in these ways:
1. The nurturing touch of a hug builds trust and a sense of
safety. This helps with open and honest communication.
2. Hugs can instantly boost oxytocin levels, which heal feelings
of loneliness, isolation, and anger.
In honor of Skin Cancer Awareness Month, May, we at IMAGE wanted to highlight some products that are suitable for skin protection and also suggest a product line that has been recommended as a treatment for cancer patients.
The Not So A"peel"ing #Truth #About #Exfoliation
Exfoliation. As an adult, you’ve probably come a long way from the days of rubbing your skin raw with that infamous apricot scrub, trying to scour away every impurity and imperfection. You’ve likely moved on to more “sophisticated” means of exfoliation, ones that promise to go deeper, speeding up cell turnover within the dermis to reveal fresher, younger looking skin. AHAs. BHAs. Glycolics. Retinol. And if you’re really determined, laser peels.

Skin Lightening Agents
“Even skin tone is a universal sign of youth and beauty. As you age photodamage from the sun and environmental toxins can create dark spots and uneven pigmentation on the skin, along with fine wrinkles and rough skin texture” – Dr Marc Ronert
If you have hyper-pigmentation, it is important to know what ingredients you need in order to lighten your skin.HydroquinoneThe result of using hydroquinone is a decrease of production of the compounds that create dark spots on the skin.
Benefits of a Facial Massage
The face is full of nerves and pleasure points, so it makes sense that a facial massage is a desirable form of pampering. Give yourself a facial massage or visit a professional. Whether you are looking... for a quick midday pick-me-up or a soothing escape, the luxury of massage is easily justified by some of its more practical benefits.
Get in a Better Mood
Facial massage decreases anxiety and can improve a negative mood, according to a study conducted by the User Science Institute.
The FDA recognizes two categories: pharmaceutical and OTC cosmetics, which are defined as:
Pharmaceutical or drug: FD&C Act, sec. 201(g)(1)].
Topical pharmaceuticals penetrate through the layers of the epidermis and affect the structure and function of the skin (think of prescription topical steroids or Retin-A).
OTC Cosmetic: FD&C Act, sec. 201(i)].
Since many consumers “self-diagnose” when choosing a skin care product from a department/drug store, these products must be made safely. Meaning, big cosmetic companies cannot afford to have a huge number of consumers with issues from using very active products — so, that skin care product may feel good and smell good, but, most likely won’t have a lot of activity in its formulation.
