The skin is one of the most significant parts of the body because of its different functions. The skin acts as a barrier to protect our body from physical damages, microorganisms (such as bacteria and viruses), and radiation. It also acts as a regulator of body temperature and helps with our sensations.

Having healthy skin can also boost your self-confidence. This is the reason why skin care should be a priority. If you are having second thoughts about doing skin or dermal care, this guide discusses the different skin types, the benefits of skin care, and its importance.

Face Skin Care

The face is probably the most exposed part of the body. Thus, it is prone to problems brought by radiation and sun rays, dust particles, and bacteria.

According to a study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, when the face is frequently exposed to radiation, it leads to faster skin aging, causing wrinkles and uneven skin discoloration. Facial skin care can help you delay the development of fine lines in your face, making you look younger.

Dust particles also cause micro-scratches and do physical damage to the skin. Bacterial invasion to the face leads to blackheads, acne, and other skin infections. Getting facial treatments can help cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin, leading to a more vibrant, clean, and hydrated face.

Back Treatment

Aside from the face, the back is another part of the body that quickly develops pimples or acne. This is why it is essential to have dermatologic treatment.

Back treatment is done to remove active back acne to prevent it from developing into a more severe skin condition. Cleansing can also be done to remove impurities brought by pimple scars or previous wound scars. Getting back treatment can also help in exfoliation, leading to an even skin tone on the back.

Vaginal Facials

Frequent shaving or waxing of hair near the pubic area can lead to rough skin and discolorations, getting vaginal facials or “vajacials” leads to smoother skin in the pubic area and an even skin tone.

Improper shaving techniques can also cause skin irritation leading to red bumps. Vaginal treatments help to relieve inflammation, thus decreasing discomfort.

Waxing can also change hair growth near the pubic area, which may cause ingrown hair leading to pains or itching. Vaginal treatment helps remove ingrown hair and prevents it from occurring again.

Stretch Marks Treatment

Stretch marks are a form of skin scarring due to increased body size. This often leads to the emergence of unappealing lines in various body parts. Circumstances that may induce stretch marks include pregnancy, puberty, and obesity caused by increased body fat.

Stretch marks are unappealing because it causes discoloration of the skin leading to an off-color hue (silver or gray). Stretch marks treatment can provide a solution to this problem.

One of the best treatments for stretch marks includes micro-needling. Micro-needling induces collagen, which is a protein that provides strength and structure to the body.

Increased collagen production leads to better skin quality and texture, which treats stretch marks and could prevent it from occurring again.

Getting skincare treatment and developing a healthier routine is one of the best investments that you can make for your skin’s wellness. Do not wait to book an appointment today to make your skin look and feel amazing.
