Whether you’re young or old, you want to feel comfortable and confident in your own skin. You may have a skin condition, however, that’s affecting your health and wellbeing. Causes can include age, stress and/or the environment.

It could be you have a minor or more severe skin condition. Perhaps you’re concerned with acne, scarring, dermatitis, eczema, roscea or hyperpigmentation. If so, you can seek treatment through an experienced skin therapist. Some skin therapists specialise in non-surgical face lifts, acne treatment, acne scar treatment and anti-aging.

If your skin needs some tender loving care, you’ll want to choose a reputable skin therapist. In this article, we’ll outline the qualities to consider when choosing a skin therapist, and share where to find the best in Canberra.

What makes a great skin therapist?

Choosing the right skin therapist to treat your skin challenges can take the stress out of what can already be an emotionally draining experience.

It can be helpful to keep the following in mind when choosing a skin therapist.

  • Experienced and qualified. You’ll want to choose a skin therapist who is trained on your type of skin condition. This is because different conditions demand unique products, techniques and treatments.
  • Latest treatments. Since skin therapy has evolved, you’ll want to choose a therapist with the latest equipment and approaches. Check online to see what treatments the skin therapist offers.
  • Non-invasive. The skin on your face is delicate. As a result, you may want a non-invasive treatment without side effects. Ask about this during your consultation.
  • Clean environment. You won’t want to risk your health by having your skin treated in an unclean environment. Therefore, check that strict hygiene measures are in place. Also, check that the environment is neat and organised.
  • Well-priced. Skin therapists charge differently for different treatments. Ask about costs, including for the length of treatment you may need.
