Chemical peels among options available to Agoura patients wishing to rejuvenate skin
The field of dermatology provides many ways to reverse the signs of aging. Whether it’s naturally growing older, too much sun exposure, or a smoking habit, our skin loses its youthfulness. It becomes less supple, and wrinkles, lines, and folds develop.
Agoura, CA patients can find a soothing atmosphere for various procedures at Daphne I. Panagotacos, M.D., in Westlake Village. You may have reached a point in your life where you long for your skin’s once youthful glow. If so, we have a number of treatments that may be just right for you. It’s a good idea to jot down a list of questions prior to your first appointment.
- Who will provide my treatment?
- What treatment options are available?
- When can I schedule the procedure?
- Where will treatment be provided?
- Why is this treatment my best option?
- How long will it be before I see results from treatment?
Also, be prepared to answer the dermatologist’s questions. These could include asking if you’ve had excessive sun exposure, if you smoke, and if you use sunscreen. It’s also important to inform the doctor of any skin moisturizers and cleansers you use.
Next, you and the dermatologist will discuss your treatment options. The following treatments are used to minimize aging signs such as wrinkles and restore youth to your skin:
We use Radiesse, which replenishes facial volume. We also use this treatment for hand rejuvenations. The dermal filler stimulates the body’s natural collagen production. Patients who receive this treatment can enjoy results of firmer, supple skin for up to a year and a half.
Intense pulsed light or photofacial therapy
We use high intensity light during this non-invasive procedure. That light is absorbed in the skin’s cells. Patients may undergo four to six sessions in three to six weeks until reaching their desired appearance. Each session only lasts about 20 minutes. This treatment restores the skin’s youthfulness.
Genesis laser therapy
We use a laser to stimulate the collagen network in your body. This is an excellent treatment for rosacea, which is skin redness.
During this procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the skin. This causes the flawed skin to peel off over time, revealing fresh new skin cells. This is a great treatment for age spots or sun-damaged skin. Patients enjoy smoother skin once this treatment is complete.
Botox and Dysport
With these treatments, a solution made from botulinum toxin is injected into the facial muscles. This toxin blocks signals from the nerves to muscles, so the injected muscles don’t contract as much. This relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles. Patients look forward to smoother skin.
Do any of these treatments appeal to you? If so, call us to schedule an appointment at 805-379-3376. Don’t forget your sheet of questions. Patients can take this time to have their questions answered at Daphne I. Panagotacos, M.D. We look forward to hearing from you.
