5 Golden Rules
to optimal beauty treatment

duration time 1 min read

Even if beauty procedures seem to be commonplace these days, some precautions must still be an integral part of the process. 

RULE 1:

IDENTIFY THE RIGHT BEAUTY SPECIALIST

Not making sure your beauty specialist is qualified can be disastrous, especially when it comes to cosmetic surgery. They must be qualified in order to be able to practice. Contact the relevant Medical Association to check the beauty specialist has the necessary expertise.

RULE 2:

PREPARE THE APPOINTMENT…

Obtain as much information as possible, ask questions and look at photos of procedures already performed. During the first appointment, establish the different steps and processes of your next visit. The procedure must be performed during a second appointment!

RULE 3:

…AND THE SKIN

Before any procedure you will be required to prepare your skin two weeks beforehand. This will make the procedure easier, allow you to get the best result and help the effects last. Three treatments are recommended, with specific products: a cleansing gel, a lotion and a serum.

RULE 4:

AND PROTECT THE SKIN, AFTER THE PROCEDURE

After the procedure, your skin is weakened and renewed. Applying a moisturizing and antiradical cream will reduce this sensitivity, rebuild the skin’s barrier function and promote its recovery. Avoid products that are too oily, as they can impair the quality of the procedure.

RULE 5:

THINK LONG TERM

Alternating different products will strengthen and prolong the result of the cosmetic surgery. Objective? To stimulate collagen synthesis and protect the newly forming fibres.

YOUR DIET HAS NOTHING
TO DO WITH HOW YOUR SKIN AGES.

CLEANSING IS KEY IN E
YOUR ANTI-AGEING RITUAL.

TRUE

Cleansing removes not only make-up but all impurities accumulated throughout the day, such as pollution, sebum, sweat. Skincare products are most effective on clean skin. Without this crucial step, impurities would clog the pores and suffocate the skin, preventing the active ingredients contained in your skincare product from doing their job.

TIREDNESS CAN SHOW
ON THE SKIN AROUND YOUR EYES.

TRUE

With tiredness or age, blood and lymph microcirculation around the eyes may slow. The very thin skin around the eye contour readily reveals the marks of poor vascularization or inadequate lymph drainage. This is what provokes the appearance of signs of tiredness, such as shadows or puffiness.

THE SUN IS YOUR
SKIN'S BEST FRIENEMY.

TRUE

Multiple environmental aging factors stem from the very energy source that gives us light and life: the sun. The effects of UVB have been known for decades: sunburn and skindamage. But UVB is just one facet of sun-induced aging. Present all year round, even in cloudy weather, UVA and infrared rays penetrate deep within the skin, degrading its essential building blocks.
