Over time, dirt, oil and cosmetic residues penetrate deep into the skin, dulling the skin and preventing it from breathing. As a result, spots and wrinkles appear. Since cleansers intended for cosmetic purposes cannot penetrate deeply into the skin, dirt and oil continue to build up under the skin.

Skin care methods are a group of applications that are made using dermatological cosmetics, which aim to eliminate negative skin problems such as acne, pimples and blackheads, and aim to restore skin vitality. In order to provide customized skin care methods to meet the specific needs of your skin.

Specialized care that suits your skin type and needs is really capable of delaying the natural aging process and reducing its outward signs of appearance. So the first step in skin care is knowing your skin type, which determines how the process will be carried out to help rejuvenate, deeply cleanse and revitalize your skin.

How to take care of the skin

A skin cleansing routine is very important for a youthful, healthy, and radiant complexion. Open pores get air. It is necessary to take care of the characteristics of the skin, give importance to facial cleansing, and use skin care products suitable for the characteristics of our skin. In oily or mixed skin, cleansing masks that contain clay and sulfur masks should be used to control the accumulation of dead cells on the skin and reduce blackheads and enlarged pores.

A vitamin C mask should be used for blemish-prone skin, but for hypersensitive skin with thin or active acne, you can use the product once a week to speed up cell turnover.

Skin care steps:

• Cleanse the skin first with a suitable lotion.

• Purify the skin from dead cells and regenerate cells.

• Opening the pores of the skin with steam.

• Dark spots on the skin can be cleaned using Babyface or thulium laser.

• After cleaning, the skin is cleansed with a high frequency.

• Solution and ampoules suitable for your skin type and needs.

• The mask is applied to your skin according to your skin type.

• Next, the pores are tightened with a tonic, and finally the skin is relaxed with a moisturizer.

Dry skin care

Dry skin needs care products that contain moisture more than other skin types. In this type of skin, if the need for hydration is not met, the skin begins to wear, dry, deteriorate and become more prone to aging. The use of products with high moisturizing properties in the care of dry skin protects the health of the skin.

Oily skin care

The natural desire of owners of oily skin is to constantly cleanse it. Excess sebum is washed away, and the skin feels refreshed. The negative effect of such short hygiene is a stronger oily sheen. Care for oily skin should be thorough, regular and include products designed specifically for problem skin. Its general principles are very simple:

1. Cleanse and peel off the top layer.

2. Fighting infections and controlling sebum secretion.

3. Moisturizing and maintaining skin.

Combination skin care

Combination skin care is a combination of dry skin and oily skin. People with combination skin may find it difficult to create and stick to a skin cleansing routine. The forehead, nose and chin area, which is called the T-zone in combination skin, is oilier than the cheeks and the rest of the face. Routine cleansing and skin care should be more careful in this skin structure, which is defined as topical lubrication and topical dryness.

Oily skin can often be mistaken for combination skin. While topical lubrication occurs in combination skin structure, there is general hydration in oily skin structure, and there is an oily and shiny texture over a person's entire face. Because the secretion of fat on the face is higher than normal in people with this skin structure. In particular, the level of fat should be adjusted and controlled. For this, the correct and effective care products must be used.

Skin care methods

Through skin care methods, the skin is purified from black spots, acne and dead cells. Provides moisture and oil balance to the skin.Using the steam therapy method, the skin pores are opened and the skin reaches the proper smoothness before the procedure to be performed. By determining the skin's needs for large pores, wrinkles, sagging, and spots on the skin, appropriate skin care methods can be determined, such as:

1. The laser

2. RF applications

3. Mesotherapy

4. Ultrasound

5. Salmon DNA

6. The platelet-rich plasma

The treatment is applied with care products with high moisturizing properties. In addition to all this, good skin also requires good nutrition, regular sleep, walking, drinking plenty of water and sun protection.

Laser skin cleaning

Laser facial cleansing allows you to clean the skin, the effect on the skin is carried out by a laser beam. It destroys the stratum corneum of the skin and promotes the formation of new cells, resulting in a complete renewal of the skin. This procedure is absolutely painless. Laser skin cleaning effectively removes dermatitis and increases its turgor. The rehabilitation period after the operation is very fast. Most often, owners of oily skin resort to this type of cleansing.

How is laser skin cleaning done? First, the skin needs to be prepared. To do this, use cleaning agents to remove cosmetic residues and dust. After that, the specialist adjusts the laser to a specific frequency and treats the problem areas of the face. The laser beam does not affect the deep layers of the dermis, so the formation of scar tissue and other negative consequences is excluded. In addition, laser skin resurfacing stimulates collagen production, which in turn restores skin elasticity and a healthy, youthful facial appearance.

Indications for using laser skin cleaning:

• Enlarged pores.

• Get rid of wrinkles in the corners of the eye.

•dark spots
