We’re lucky enough to live in a world with a cornucopia of options regarding skin treatments and anti-aging regimens. Plastic surgery, lasers, and LED light therapy rejuvenate your skin or keep it acne-free.
But one of the most effective ways to promote and maintain the health and vibrancy of your skin is also one of the simplest. Regular facials customized to your skin’s needs ensure that your skin stays healthy and strong.
At the Daphne Panagotacos, M.D., Skin Care Center in Westlake Village, California, our expert aesthetics team offers a variety of facials. Unlike at-home skin care, facials take cleansing, extracting, and nourishing to the next level. Here’s why we think they’re an excellent choice for anyone who cares about their skin.
Facials address your issues
Whether you have acne, wrinkles, sun spots, or all of these, we custom-design your facials to counteract such unwanted occurrences. For instance, if you have clogged pores and acne, we may use steam to soften your skin and make extractions easier.
We also choose the right serums and other therapies — such as chemical peels — to lighten dark spots or soften fine lines and wrinkles. Facials are compatible with all of the other skin-improvement techniques we offer.
Facials detox your skin
From the air we breathe to the water we drink and the food we eat, pollutants and toxins surround us. Anything that affects our environment also affects our skin.
While cleansing your skin twice a day is important, that routine isn’t sufficient to remove embedded impurities and pollutants. In contrast, a facial cleanses your skin deeply. It not only removes surface dirt and debris, it also cleanses inside your pores.
Through extraction, we remove clogs of old oil, dead skin, bacteria, and debris from your pores. Not only does this create more vibrancy in your skin it also removes one of the main factors of acne: Acne can’t develop in deeply cleansed, debris- and bacteria-free pores.
Facials feed your skin
We don’t just remove the bad stuff; we also drench your skin in the good stuff. Our facial serums are filled with vitamins, antioxidants, and other nutrients your skin needs to build strong, healthy cells.
We choose a serum that works best with your skin. For instance, if you’re battling wrinkles and fine lines, your serum may be drenched with retinoids.
Facials are an “early alert” system
Just as your dentist can catch the start of a cavity before it destroys a tooth, your aesthetician doesn’t just treat your skin. They examine it and keep track of its health. For instance, they may notice slight discolorations on your skin that — without treatment — could later develop into full-on sun spots or even skin cancer.
Regular facials let you nip problems in the bud. All your ounces of prevention may save you many pounds (and dollars worth!) of cures.
Facials stimulate circulation and regrowth
You can also think of a facial as an exercise for your skin. Our gentle massages and manipulations stimulate circulation and detoxification. Many treatments we offer also trigger the production of collagen and elastin, which are the building blocks of healthy skin.
As you age, your ability to shed old dead skin cells and reveal fresh new ones slows down. Regular facials make your skin cells turn over quickly, keeping your skin fresh and vibrant. Facials let your aging skin act like young skin.
Facials change with your needs
You don’t have to have the same facial every month. As your needs change — and even as the seasons change — you may pick from several different options. We offer:
- Acne facials — steam, extraction, and icing
- European facials — cleansing, exfoliating, and massage
- HydraFacials® — three-step, high-tech facial for instant brightness and glow
- Chemical peels — various acids that clear acne, smooth wrinkles, and stimulate collagen
