Face Mapping Skin Analysis – Prescription For Skincare
Do you ever fall asleep without taking off your make-up or neglect your skincare routine? I have to admit I sometimes get so busy and tired that I fall asleep on the couch, later crawling into bed and neglect my skincare. Once in a while I have to kick-start my self-care, so I do a check in at a spa for a facial and take some me time.
My latest facial was at Demalogica’s training center where I tried out their the newish technique, based on ancient practices, Face Mapping.
Face Mapping® is Dermalogica’s unique skin analysis that provides insight into your skin’s past and present, and with the information gathered, the technician prescribes a home care regime crafted especially for your skin.
Rather than analyzing the skin in general terms, the therapist uses Face Mapping® to divide the face into fourteen zones. Each zone is examined inch-by-inch through touch and sight, and findings are notated on a prescription sheet. The sheet serves as a customized visual guide, and notes conditions including congestion, breakouts, dehydration, and/or hyper-pigmentation are present.
My biggest concerns are aging (damn wrinkles), rosacea and the occasional blackheads and whiteheads (yuck!!). My therapist, Cory mapped my face and came up with suggestions for skin care in the “UltraCalming” line of skin care. I’ve been using the UltraCalming cleanser, UltraCalming Sensitive Tint with SPF30, and a Microfoliant to prevent the skin from clogging and my skins doing a ton better. I still have issues with rosacea and broken capillaries, but I think that will take some laser treatments to deal with, such as IPL or some sort of zapping. Looking into that.
Face Mapping® is only available from Dermalogica skin care professionals at authorized skin treatment centers, salons and spas worldwide. Want to get mapped? Find your nearest location here.
