The secret to youthful skin? Aesthetic dermatology services that speed up cell turnover in Westlake Village CA

Every day, new skin cells are forming in the bottom part of the skin’s outermost layer (epidermis). They start as fat, square-shaped cells. And, as they work their way up to the top of the epidermis, they flatten out and eventually die off. So, the skin younger people see today will be gone in around a month. This process of cell turnover is vital to the health and appearance of our skin; however, as we age, this natural cycle slows down. After the age of 50, the skin may only renew itself every 45 to 90 days! Aesthetic dermatology services in Westlake Village, CA at Daphne I. Panagotacos, M.D. Skin Care Centre encourage cell turnover and promote the production of new cells, targeting the dead cells that build-up due to sluggish turnover, and that lead to a dull complexion, uneven tone, and a dry texture.

These services are generally divided into a couple of different categories:

  • Chemical exfoliation – Board-certified dermatologists, Drs Daphne Panagotacos and Clayton Hinshaw, offer a wide range of peels that lift the outermost dead and dull skin cells to reveal regenerated tissues. Post-treatment skin looks healthier — softening lines, improving the appearance of discoloration, adding radiance and softness to the skin’s surface. Our skin care center also offers several different types of facials, which may be combined with chemical peels for an infusion of moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid (HA), and to gently treat the build-up of excess skin cells.
  • Mechanical exfoliation – In addition to applying solutions that encourage renewed skin cells, Drs Panagotacos and Hinshaw and their team (which includes nurse practitioners and a licensed paramedical aesthetician) may apply specialized tools to polish away dead skin. We offer both microdermabrasion and advanced alternatives to such techniques, like Dermafile. A cutting-edge resurfacing instrument, the Dermafile smooths away sun damage, fine lines, and acne scars.

Additionally, our skilled professionals are equipped to extract acne safely and effectively by using light steam to loosen up the pores, and dry ice post-extraction to destroy bacteria, ease inflammation, and support healing. As your skin evolves as you age, it is important for your skincare routine to also mature with you. And, of course, we encourage professional evaluations for any anomalies that could indicate pre-cancerous lesions at least annually. Proactive protection and avoidance of damaging Ultraviolet light from the sun and tanning beds are one of the best things you can do for the health of your skin and your overall health!

Have been going to Dr. Panagotacos for years and she is always on top of her game. Watches me like a hawk and catches any new possible melanomas I might have. Also when making those cuts they heal beautifully and hardly leave a mark. The office is beautiful and very friendly and almost always on time with their appointments.
