Seeing Is Believing?
Not always, unfortunately!
The pictures shared below are of results our clients enjoy long-term due to our treatment processes working to treat the underlying issues that cause the natural ageing process and them having the correct amount of treatments to repair and rebuild the damage caused by the natural ageing process.
Our clients look like the pictures shown of them on this page all day, every day whilst they are out in the world living thier life.
When viewing before and after pictures on this webpage and other clinics/salons consider the following:
Doing a superficial treatment like Microdermabrasion and applying topical skincare can make the skin appear to look more youthful.
-Microdermabrasion is a simple process of using a small grinding-like disc to buff away dead skin cells which minimizes the look of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and pigmentation issues as well as giving the skin a more plump appearance due to the action causing a superficial trauma to the outer layers of the skin.
-The results of Microdermabrasion, also called Dermabrasion and even Hydrodermabrasion/Hydrofacials (which is just dermabrasion where water infused with vitamins and other unnecessary concoctions runs over the grinding disk that buffs away at the surface of the skin) are short-lived.
-Jessicat provides Dermabrasion treatments FREE within the treatment processes she uses on her client’s skin when she feels it is nessessary and provides all her client’s devices complementary as well as training on how to use them optimally at home due to believing it is NOT worth clients spending money on!
After treatment photos are often taken directly after treatments due to inflammation being present in the skin making it look more plump, firm and full for a short time.
-Any time you see the results of a treatment being advertised watch out for text that tells you that the photo was taken after a one-off treatment session which will tell you that the results shown are NOT an accurate example of the results gained from the treatment performed.
-It takes time to properly repair and rebuild thinning skin and depleting muscle mass and it should be remembered that when something seems too good to be true it most probably is. Whilst we all want quick results repairing and rebuilding the damage of the natural ageing process takes time, just as it took time for the damage to occur.
Notice the lighting used in before and after pictures shown in advertising.
-We find lighting is always tricky when taking before and after pictures, even in a controlled environment. Jessicat and her new clients can be eager to begin treatments and rush through taking the before photos which may result in them having more shadows than the after pictures where she is more mindful of the lighting and tends to take more time due to wanting to pick up the results the client has gained in the best way possible.
-Whilst Jessicat is working to take more time when taking before photos she would like it noted that she has always tried hard to keep the lighting as similar between the before and after photos as possible to show the true resutls her clients gain from the treatments she provides.
-Watch out for after photos that have very different lighting than the before photos as practitioners often flood the after photos with light to hide imperfections on the skin whilst showing the before photos in darker, more shadowed lighting that highlights imperfections.
Working to find the right treatments and practitioners involves working through a mind field of misinformation and ways to lose your money without getting much in the way of results. Jessicat knows this from her personal journey leading up to working in the aesthetic treatment world and tries as best she can to provide information that will empower you with knowledge that will help you get more bang for your buck and gain the results you want and deserve 😻
