ASIAN SKIN CARE

The steps are basically the same as any skin care regime, but the focus is hydration with diligence. The few Asian women I have spoken too, tell me that it is a necessity to concentrate on cleansing, exfoliation, hydration, and moisturization to lock in skin hydration. Skin care is done with conviction everyday; twice a day. Some also participate in spa baths to exfoliate their full bodies, and then moisturize with oils and creams to lock in the benefits. Some women do this for their bodies everyday. Exposure to sunlight is treated with sunscreen and covering up for protection with these same individuals. It is a lifestyle of protection. Results can be achieved on any professional skin care regime with diligence and a healthy lifestyle. 

MICROBLADING

Microblading is permanent make-up and will last maybe six months to a year. The misconception is that it is not considered permanent make-up because it does not penetrate deep in the skin. If the ink is able to remain in the skin, it is permanent make-up. The contraindication to microblading is the blade is dragged over the skin and cuts the skin to insert the ink. Using a needle like tattooing, the skin is punctured to set the ink in the skin. There is less risk of scar tissue developing because the skin is not cut. 

SILK FACIALS

A silk facial resurfaces the outer layer of the epidermis with micro-dermabrasion and having no gaps between infusing a serum after the exfoliation process. It is a one step process. A two step process is using micro-dermabrasion first, then applying a serum with iotonphoresis, ultrasonic, LED, or micro-current producing more skin benefits. 

MEDICAL PEDICURE and MEDICAL AESTHETICIAN (ESTHETICIAN) IN CALIFORNIA

There is a misconception in the public about medical pedicures and medical aestheticians. According to California State Board of Cosmetology there is no California state licensing for medical aestheticians or medical pedicures. A nail technician and an esthetician must be licensed by the California State Board of Cosmetology, otherwise anyone not licensed cannot perform services. The establishment must also be licensed through the same board to perform any of these services.
