Skin Care Academy

Welcome to the Skin Care Academy, where you will find the information you need about using advanced skin care techniques at home. You no longer need to visit a spa or dermatologist to get effective skin treatments. Although professional strength products have become readily available, the information needed to use them effectively has not been as widespread. I created these lessons to share my knowledge and experience about using these treatments at home.

After seeing so many horror stories that could have easily been avoided with the right precautions, I felt it was important to share everything I know with the skin care community. I am not a doctor and this is not medical advice, I’m just a regular person who has taken skin care into my own hands and saved lots of money in the process.

These E courses are somewhat advanced, but you do not have to have any prior experience to use them. The main focus is removing skin damage like stretch marks, scars, wrinkles, and discoloration by designing a routine that works for your skin type, lifestyle, and budget. The lessons are entirely free of charge.

This is the best place to start. It will give you all the information you need about customizing an advanced routine that works for a various types of skin damage, including stretch marks, age spots, wrinkles, and scars.

Remember, professional strength treatments are just that; they are intended to be applied by a professional. These lessons are for information purposes only and do not constitute medical advice, which I am not qualified to give. If you choose to do these treatments at home, you are doing so at your own risk.


Chemical Peels

Don’t damage your skin by using peels improperly. This lesson is for people who have never done a peel at home before, or have and gotten negligible or horrible results.

Skin Needling

This is one of the most powerful skin care treatments today and many people are doing it in the comfort of their own home. However, it needs to be done correctly for best results, and I’ve seen disastrous recommendation on skin care forum and sometimes even from unreliable vendors. This lesson is great for people who are both considering doing this treatment or have done it already and aren’t getting the results they’re looking for. Topics included are needling techniques, risks and sterilization, needling frequency, and proper before and aftercare. This lesson also contains a step by step sample experience.

Your skin condition and overall health are the biggest factors in determining if you are a good candidate for an advanced resurfacing treatment like skin needling or a chemical peel. Using these treatments without proper consultation constitutes as using at your own risk.  If you have any concerns as to whether you should be applying a chemical peel, prescription retinoid, or using a needling treatment, please see your doctor or dermatologist.

Sun Sensitivity
Clients need to be aware that by using glycolic acid and other peeling products, your skin will be more photo-sensitive than normal.  It is recommended that you use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, preferably SPF 30 or higher, after using skin peel products.  The FDA recommends using an SPF for one week post-peel, but it is generally a good idea to do so for longer.
