Medical Skin Care
Medical skin care consists of the processes intended for restoring the vitality of the skin, clearing the skin of certain factors that cause it to look pale, such as oil accumulation, blackheads and makeup remnants, by means of dermocosmetics.
Skin Care Process
In a medical skin care application, firstly a skin analysis is performed to determine the needs of the skin.
A healthy environment is created for herbal peeling, by cleaning the skin from oils, makeup remnants etc. The skin is purified from dead cells by means of a mild peeling operation performed with herbal dermocosmetics.
With steam treatment, the skin pores are opened and the skin is enabled to get soft. After the removal of blackheads and milias from the skin, high frequency is applied for ensuring a deep disinfection.
Skin care process is completed with a moisturizing and nourishing care mask. Additional care and treatment operations may also be performed if needed during the process, in accordance with the skin’s structure.

Using cream-based soaps that contain cocoa butter and lanolin should be avoided; and moisturizers in the form of lotions that contain substances attracting and holding water (humectants) should be preferred.

- In a combination skin, the oily areas of the face cosmetically referred to as the T zone consisting of the forehead, nose, and chin are excessively oiled whereas dryness is observed in other areas.
