Popular Combination Facials

Custom-designed combination treatments should vary from client to client, weighing in factors such as the client’s current skin profile, facial structure, age, and desired goals for the treatment. It is also important to take into account skin sensitivity when attempting more aggressive approaches. Nonetheless, here are popular combination treatments to explore.

Botox and Dermal Fillers

Injectables are by far one of the most popular facial enhancement treatments available. Botox®, which is a neurotoxin that helps to target the causes of wrinkles and temporarily relax the muscles beneath the skin to help them smooth over.

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. They are available in a range of brands and types (with the most popular being Juvéderm®). Micro channeling, dermaplane, and hydrodermabrasion are popular treatments to combine with injectables. IPL can also further assist in wrinkle reduction and fine lines while correcting pigmentation issues and acne scars.

Mesotherapy is also an ideal treatment that can be combined with injectables for clients who would like to remove small quantities of fat from the face and/or neck.

Galvanic Desincrustation, High Frequency, and LED

Galvanic desincrustation uses a low-voltage negative current that deep cleanses the skin, reducing sebum and congestion in preparation for extractions. High frequency uses a direct current to assist in healing after extractions and to dry secretions. LED therapy can improve acne, hyperpigmentation, speed up wound healing, and reduce inflammation. These three treatments combined together are the perfect trio for the right client.

Dermaplaning and Hydrodermabrasion

A match made in heaven, these two facial treatments are much gentler for clients still looking to achieve results. Dermaplaning is an excellent exfoliation tool to remove dead skin cells, bacteria, and peach fuzz, which can clog pores and impact the skin’s texture. Hydrodermabrasion can further exfoliate the skin while hydrating and infusing the skin with essential nutrients for the perfect facial glow.

Machine Magic

Skincare by Amy Peterson in Miami, FL offers The Magic Machine Hour facial to treat the skin on multiple levels while allowing the compatibility of multiple technical facials to co-exist as one. How does it work? She evaluates her client’s skin needs and selects different techniques and machines to maximize the look and feel of her client’s skin.

Offering a customizable service like this one puts you in control, allowing you to put your knowledge and skills to the test to maximize the full potential of your client’s skin. What works for one client, might not work for another, and establishing that truth right from the beginning gives you the authority to perform what you are trained to do.

Multifunctional machines are your greatest investment in the treatment room. Machines with multiple features like high frequency, galvanic, ultrasonic, microdermabrasion, and other services can help you get a lot done in the treatment room in just one hour.

Taking Protocol Precautions

Whether you are using advanced skincare products like chemical peels or combining high-tech machines, taking protocol precautions to protect your client’s skin is absolutely necessary. It is important to understand that an aggressive approach isn’t always a progressive approach, and it may not always be the best option for your client.

While procedures like microneedling can be used in combination with other modalities such as chemical peeling, radiofrequency, and laser, the treatment itself is great as a standalone procedure. If highly advanced combination treatments are not carried out correctly, they can cause detrimental effects to the skin causing post-inflammatory pigmentation, collagen degradation, infection and scarring, and so on.

What is most important is your client’s skin health, and any combination that risks that should be taken seriously. Knowledge and proper education are key here, as well as understanding the limitations and complications of treatments.

Blending Med Spa and Holistic Therapies

Advancing facial treatments can look like many different protocols, even for the holistic esthetician. Combining the new wave of wellness and advanced esthetic treatments can transform your client’s skin from the inside out.

Rejuvenating your client’s skin is important, but so is maintaining it through proper nutrition, and emotional and mental wellness. Clients who suffer from acne may benefit from advanced skincare such as chemical peels and enzymes, but they may also benefit from an inside out approach to skin. Skin coaching programs, nutrition plans, and emotional healing services like Reiki are great add-ons to your facials.
