Why Your MediSpa Needs a Tailor
You wouldn’t think twice about asking your doctor for healthcare solutions based on your body’s needs and unique chemistry, would you? Of course not. Nor would you hesitate to ask a seamstress to hem a pair of trousers, take in the waist of a dress, or make other alterations to fit a garment to your body. Unfortunately, most people don’t realise they can (and should!) apply the same tailor-made approach to their skincare.
Here at Dr George Marcells About Face clinic in Edgecliff, our experts are on a mission to change that mindset. In this article, we look more closely at custom-tailored skincare and explain why it’s such a winner.
Custom Skincare for a New Generation of Consumers
Today’s consumers are more educated than ever before. Their knowledge has created a challenge for manufacturers who must now
- Work harder to stand out in the crowd
- Use ingredients that are healthful, not harmful
- Develop skin care solutions that are easy and efficient to use
- Create products that reflect the diversity of consumers
This is good news for consumers who can mix and match products including:
Custom Skin Care: The Price is Right
It’s true that custom skin care products require a higher initial investment than their over-the-counter cousins. In the long run however, you can “invest in a few well-selected, effective products rather than several ineffective products that could leave you with a skin care graveyard,” dermatologist Hadley King told New Beauty magazine. Additionally, personalised products that work with your skin type can help prevent skin irritations and allergic reactions, which can be costly to diagnose and treat.
If time is money, then custom skin care is a really big saving. Your skin is in a constant state of flux due to changes in your environment, lifestyle, stress levels, and more. Those changes can make finding the right off-the-shelf product a process of trial and error. When you work with an expert to personalise your skin care, you get the results you want with less fuss.
Tailored Skin Care Just for You
“While (skin care) recommendations from family and friends may serve as quick fixes in the short term, it’s important to remember that no approach to skin care is the same for two people,” reports Vogue Australia. “(In the) long term, it’s the advice from the experts that will see your regimen go from skin-care-novice to beauty-authority.”
The skincare pros at our practice use the latest assessment tools to analyse skin, ask questions about medical background and history, and get lifestyle details that may have an effect on skin. Armed with patient-specific information, our experts then turn to customisable products and treatments from top manufacturers such as Eyra and Dermacosmetica to
- Safely exfoliate skin
- Provide deep cleansing of pores
- Treat skin disorders such as rosacea and eczema
- Protect against sun exposure
- Keep skin moisturised
- Erase wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of ageing
Get Some Skin in the Game
If you’ve grown weary buying, trying, and then throwing out beauty products, customised skincare may be right for you. Instead of visiting a department store or pharmacy, we invite you to visit our practice and talk with a skincare expert. You’ll get the information you want and the products you need to stay beautiful. (You won’t find that at Woolies!)
