Personal Beauty Care and Today’s Science Technology



Science is making a tremendous difference in the beauty industry and the benefits are showing up in more than one or two problem areas (Christiansen, 2012). Problems and issues with skin, hair, and nails was something that science and technology were limited years ago. The fountain of youth was something of a biological truth for a long time in our history, but today, we have an edge on aging skin problems, as well as, other issues that allows us to combat losing some of the advantages that only youth offered in recent years.

I can testify that when I was younger I was blessed with a great biological makeup. I did not have to worry about having long pretty nails. As I grew into my forties, I was facing issues with weakening nails. Science and technology is able to offer hope that was not available when my mother reached her forties. I can remember her struggling in her forties with brittle nails and aging skin concerns. She spent countless time and money trying various over the counter products, as well as, private companies that offered products to the general public which was limited and did not make much of a difference. I am fortunate to have access to products and technology that can offer me effective lasting results, but I think companies and service providers are just as grateful to the new frontier of the beauty industry. They have products and equipment to work with concerning treating skin and nail problems that offer lasting healthy results.

When I was younger I did not have to do much to keep long nails. My nails were strong and grew easily. Because of my genetics, my nails are weakening which makes my nails curl under from typing. I enjoy having nice nails, but my work negatively affects my aging nails giving me low self confidence. Typical nail products do not help, such as nail strengthener, so I was beginning to wonder if there were any answers without me having to go through the disappointment my mother went through trying to have nice nails. My nails grow fast, so acrylic nails were not the answer for me because of the frequent fill-ins. When my daughter introduced me to shellac nails she discovered at her local nail salon, and I did not know the impact it would have on my problem. I was not only able to reclaim healthy looking and strong nails, but I was amazed at how the products and technology came together to offer me such wonderful hope. Within a matter of thirty minutes, simple nail polish strokes and light treatment on my nails gave me confidence in showing my nails again. It really opened my eyes to the advantages I have today for improving myself image and my self esteem. Being forty does not have to mean a terrible sentence of doom and gloom when it comes to beauty and health.

I am studying more today on ways that local salons and spa treatments offer me advantages over my aging skin as well. I am considering having microdermabrasion to counteract aging skin spots, and wrinkles. Microdermabrasion is a technique using small wand like instruments that skim the surface to exfoliate the skin layers. It such a gentle treatment that dentist are using this technology to help remove stains from teeth. The great thing about microdermabrasion is that it can help stimulate collagen production helping me combat my aging skin issues. What I enjoy also about this service is that it is available through a local spa by licensed aestheticians, and I can take advantage of this service during my lunch hour. I can even go back to work right after treatment (American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2012).

Hair removal is another advantage science and technology has given us with the use of electrolysis. Those wild eyebrow shapes that I probably inherited from my grandfather are a thing of the past. I do not have to fight with them every month through plucking them only to have them return in a couple of weeks because electrolysis therapy removes the hair at the root. It is a painless treatment with minimal if any side effects (Jaliman, MD, 2012).

It is nice to know that today we have so many available options with lasting results against the forces of aging and harmful elements due to the advances in marriage of science and technology. In fact, many of those options are available at local salons and spas at a fraction of the cost of having to see a physician for treatment. Scheduling is convenient, and treatments are affordable offering results that last. Not only can I take time for me, but I can benefit from amazing products and services that are available to anyone. Personal beauty care has taken on a new dimension of effective treatments and product solutions. It is wise to ask about services available through local salons and spa treatment centers; because I am sure there is a miracle for everyone just waiting to happen.
