The skin is the largest organ of the body, responsible for insulating, protecting and even filtering harmful chemicals. It is not just one layer; it is actually made up of three different layers, each with their own specific role to play.

Our skin is also one of the first things that people notice about us. It ages over time with lines, wrinkles, dark spots and textural changes that are a result of loss of elasticity in the skin as well as decreased collagen production.

Additionally, exposure to sunlight, pollutants in the air, makeup and skin products and diseases can speed up skin-cell aging and make people look older. Keeping the skin looking youthful is possible through the use of specific types of skin care treatments and processes.

Spas, Salons and Medical Spas

In Encinitas, as in most cities around the country, there is a range of different possible venues to have skin care treatments. One of the most important factors to consider is the professionalism and training of the aestheticians.

A medical spa offers the service of dermatologists in both providing consultations to clients as well as in performing some specific procedures. Having a dermatologist on staff provides a medical expert in skin care and conditions of the skin to oversee the procedures and treatments provided to clients.

Spas and salons do not have the services of a dermatologist. This means they are limited in the procedures they can offer. It also may mean that the individual providing the skin treatment, including the use of lasers and injections, is not fully trained or has little to no experience.

Having both dermatologists and trained, professional aestheticians completing skin care treatments is always the best option. Not only can it prevent damage to the skin during the treatment, but it will also assist in customizing treatments to meet your unique skin health requirements.
