The value of an Estheticians Expertise
Estheticians are state board licensed skin care professionals trained in technologies to support skin care to help clients balance oil and moisture content and achieve a healthy, youthful complexion. An esthetician will have an understanding of various product lines and formulas that protect skin from environmental hazards and anti-aging techniques.
Their well-honed knowledge and procedures help refine fine lines, wrinkles, and help revive dull uneven skin tone and other skin conditions.
Skin care treatments are relaxing and rejuvenating. If smooth, healthy skin is your goal, visiting Skin Care with Dory will be beneficial for revitalizing your appearance and a confidence booster. Dory Johnson is board licensed in Colorado and California.
Techniques and products
Esthetics is the application of various treatments to the skin, to maintain its health and vitality. Techniques used by Skin Care with Dory include exfoliation, pore cleansing, extractions, creams, lotions, masks, lymphatic drainage, manual manipulation and pure peptides are used in most treatments. Advanced technologies proven to improve skin quality are often offered that accelerate a service provided. Accelerated Treatments Include: Microcurrent Facials, European Facials, Aqua Facials, Microchanneling/Micro-needling, Dermaplaning, Nano needling, Chemical peels and LED Light Therapy
Common therapies and explanations:
Chemical Peel: an exfoliation process that is effective in treating aging, sun damage, acne, mild scarring, improving overall skin brightness and evening skin tone. Custom chemical peels penetrate the skin and heal skin at a deeper level targeting specific outcomes and exfoliate the skin encouraging cellular turnover. As well, Light peels require no down time from work or normal activities. Moderate peels may require a day or two of down time, and deep peels can require a week or more to allow the skin to fully heal and rejuvenate. Special care instructions will be provided to ensure proper healing and longevity.
Enzyme Peel: Lighter exfoliation than a chemical peel. Leaves skin smoother and more radiant.
Exfoliation: is a procedure that removes dead skin cells manually, including scrubbing, brushing, or use of tools such as microdermabrasion. Adding a chemical peel causes dead skin cells to shed, or an enzymatic product that digests dead skin cells offers more long lasting results. Scrubs, Enzymes and microdermabrasion may be offered.
Extraction: The process of deep cleansing the pores, either manually using gloved hands and cotton or tissue around the fingers, with gentle pressure to remove the impacted pore. For deeper issues, a metal extraction implement is used that is designed to clear blocked pores.
Facial: A gentle procedure that is the most popular treatment performed by estheticians. It is an excellent way for your therapist to get a good understanding of your skin prior to suggesting future enhanced treatments that improve tonal quality. A facial generally includes makeup removal and skin cleansing, exfoliation by mechanical, enzymatic or chemical means, warm towels, extractions, facial massage, a treatment mask, serum/moisturizer and sunblock. Ask Dory about an appropriate treatment suitable for your own personal skin care needs.

Visiting Dory Johnson at Skin Care with Dory
It is advised to schedule a consultation appointment prior to or with your first treatment, particularly if you are new to esthetic treatments. I offer “First Facial Experience” to get to know your skin and your needs. This gives us a chance to discuss your goals and expectations for the first visit, and long term goals for the future. During a consultation, you will complete an extensive intake form so I may understand your concerns and skin care objectives. It may be advised that I clean the skin followed by a detailed skin analysis so I may create an individualized treatment plan. I offer a view on your long term professional treatment and recommendations for your personal home regimes.
In order to maintain continued visible improvements to your professional treatment is consistent, correct home care. I have been trained to select products that will most benefit your skin long-term. Like medical or dental care, following the right daily regimen at home is highly essential to get the most benefit out of your visits to a professional (especially since you might be washing your face 60 times per month at home).
At Skin Care with Dory I use and recommend Viktoria DeAnn pure Peptides and Jan Marini Skin Care line and Osmosis Skin Care lines to improve your skin and help you maintain your glow and vitality.
