Query about ICC colour profiles

Hi

I was trying to fully understand and benefit from a photo lab online who have different icc profiles for each of their paper types.

My desired work flow would be to simply export from Lightroom but at the time I only knew how to install the profiles in Photoshop so I exported from Lightroom and opened in Photoshop and then converted to their profile.

I thought the purpose of using a profile was to enable you to further edit your image to suit their printers especially if it changed quite a bit on conversion, But when I queried this with the lab they said do not change it -

"I would not edit the file in the profiled form, do all your editing and then convert to profile and if you see the file change at this stage leave it as if you alter it you are over riding the profile."

any further explanations for me please?

thanks!
