Treatments that specialists advise you not to do at home



Trying many products can have unpleasant long-term consequences on the skin as it irritates. A thorough analysis of the skin by the esthetician is essential to determine the skin type, what the problem is, what products it best suits, and especially to develop a personalized and long-term care plan.

Chemical peels made at home

The specialist never recommends using chemical peels at home. Sometimes they are bought directly from the internet and are too powerful to use without the guidance and careful supervision of the dermatologist or esthetician. "I've met a lot of customers with chemical peeling problems at home. Some have complained of redness, skin pigmentation, serious irritation and even serious allergic reactions that have persisted for years, "says the specialist.

Moisture and clean your face with natural cosmetics made from Pellamar for great results.

Chemical peeling consists of applying a chemical solution to the skin, which causes skin exfoliation. The procedure can be used to reduce the fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth, treating wrinkles caused by the sun but also as a result of aging, improving the appearance of minor scars, treating certain types of acne, reducing stains, freckles and melasma resulting in following the age or use of contraceptives.
Lufa or vegetable sponge

Using the face on the face is not recommended because it is very abrasive and can irritate the skin. If the person in question also suffers from acne, these sponges will only make the situation worse.

Aesthetics and dermatologists know how to correctly use needle-based devices.

There is a high risk of contacting different infections due to these devices if used at home. In the salon, the esthetician who is trained in using such devices, personalizes the procedure according to the type of skin.

Squeeze the pimples

I always recommend women who come to the salon not to try to squeeze their own pimples. Due to the hands that may not be sufficiently cleaned, the environment and the incorrect pressing technique, they can cause their inflammation and damage to the tissue, as well as subsequent pigmentation caused by skin trauma. So instead of solving a problem it gets worse, the dermatologist warns.
