The skin care specialist plays a vital role when working with a physician during these services. It is important to not only have the patient’s skin prepped properly, but also to care for the skin after these treatments. Along with any medical treatment, using the wrong products will not only hinder the results, but can also cause serious complications. Education is the key to achieve the best outcome, and the ultimate gratification comes when satisfied patients obtain their desired results.
