Socio-aesthetics

Based on a holistic approach (bio-psycho-social-aesthetic), a socio-beautician is a professional who provides technical/aesthetic and relational care of a preventive (hygiene), healing (integration of side effects), palliative and educational (according to the needs observed) nature, using beauty treatments and their variations.

The socio-beautician offers a sense of comfort and unconditional support. She helps reinstate the patient’s personality and his/her value as a human-being, she restores dignity. For the patient, she is a source of help and advice, with a caring attitude.

 

Physically, she is there to: 

  • Alleviate any adverse effects from treatment and improve the appearance of the skin and skin appendages using the appropriate techniques and products
  • Help the patient acquire the techniques necessary to maintain his/her identity by offering advice on hairstyles, corrective make-up, headscarves…
  • Focus on the positive areas of the body
  • Improve the sense of well-being thanks to a relaxing and pleasant touch
  • Improve quality of life and support
  • Promote rest and relaxation
  • Restore appearance and maintain personal hygiene
  • Relieve pain

 

Psychologically: 

  • Set up various communication channels based on a new approach and a non-medical attentive ear
  • Help to maintain space-time reference points
  • Facilitate relationship between carer/patient and acceptance of treatment
  • Help patients to adapt to the changing image of their bodies, to better integrate their new body image
  • Promote social and family relations
  • Foster the maintaining of autonomy
  • Encourage the will and desire to live
  • Alleviate stress and anxiety
