Going makeup-free can be quite the challenge when your complexion is less than “perfect”. When you suffer from acne, hyperpigmentation (dark spots), or premature aging, concealing the issue with cosmetics is often viewed as the only solution. Advancing my skillset from Makeup Artist to Licensed Esthetician made all the difference on my approach to complexion perfection.
Tackling skin concerns holistically ensures lasting results, whereas camouflaging issues merely provides fleeting, instant gratification. Diet, environment, lifestyle, and genetics all play a role in the condition of your skin. Once the cause for your imperfect complexion is determined, you can address it with lifestyle changes, professional treatments, and high quality skincare products.
Dermaesthetics takes a holistic approach in treating skin conditions with an Eastern meets Western philosophy. You not only get high quality, active ingredients, you tackle the true cause of the ailment to achieve results and maintain them!
