Skin Care

Although the kind of skin you have is determined by genetics, however, a regular skin care routine and a balanced diet can help keep away anomalies associated with your particular skin type.

Before beginning any skin care program, it is vital to understand your skin type, and then decide the specific problems you need to treat. Our skin care experts assess your skin based on its oil content, moisture content, thickness, texture, color, elasticity, pore size, sensitivity, and any other specific disorders. Depending on the overall picture presented by these parameters, our cosmetologists generally classify your skin into the following types:

Normal, Oily, Dry, Combination, Sensitive and Mature.

Your skin type will indicate the treatment program as well as the products that would be administered by our skin care experts.
