Treat Your Skin to a Summer Facial

Treat Your Skin to a Summer Facial

Summertime usually means more time enjoying the sunshine, but the sun’s higher UV levels can take a toll on even the healthiest skin. Too much sun without adequate protection can result in sunburn, dry, flaky skin, premature aging, and numerous other cosmetic flaws. 

Dr. Daphne Panagotacos and her team offer a soothing summer facial that can repair damaged skin and prepare you for more time in the sun. A professional facial tailored to your needs and skin condition can reduce the effects of summer-related sun exposure and protect you from premature aging. 

Every type of facial we offer our Westlake Village, California patients includes professional cleansing, intense hydration, and gentle exfoliation for a truly exhilarating and refreshing skin care experience. 

Begin with a professional consultation

Before you receive a facial, the professional practitioners at Daphne Panagotacos, M.D., Inc. conduct a thorough examination to determine the condition of your skin and identify problem areas. 

You will receive a completely personalized assessment of your skin condition and a discussion of the best facial treatments to repair damaged skin and protect you from extended summertime sun exposure. Your aesthetician will also recommend steps to include in your at-home skin care routine to extend the results of your facial or other spa services.

Deep cleaning

Depending on your needs, a deep cleaning is a critical part of your summer facial. Various treatments can extract oils and buildup, remove dead skin cells, and open your pores to receive other healing and protective serums. If you have problems with acne, an acne facial can also reduce the appearance of white and blackheads and prevent breakouts

Deep cleaning in a summer facial can also leave your skin pristine and ready for sunscreen or other summer skin care treatments or products for the best long-term results. 

Gentle exfoliation

Gentle exfoliation techniques are essential for repairing damaged skin. This removes dead skin cells that make skin appear dull, clog pores, and interfere with your skin’s ability to absorb the variety of topical treatments we will apply. 

A professional-grade exfoliation also stimulates collagen production for skin renewal from the inside. Because this process naturally slows with age, a summer facial can encourage improved skin elasticity, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and create a smoother texture and better appearance. 

Intense hydration

Summertime means more time outdoors in the sun and increased exposure to pool chemicals and other elements that rob your skin of vital moisture. Your skin becomes dry and flaky, itchy and uncomfortable. After deep cleaning and exfoliation, your summer facial moves to deep hydration to replace the moisture your skin needs to become soft and supple. 

Excellent protection

A summer facial treats any existing skin problems and helps reduce your risk of future skin issues. Following your aesthetician’s recommendations for ongoing skin care can reduce your risk of damage and prolong the effects of your facial treatments. More than treating your skin now, we also seek to offer excellent protection through advice and recommendations for maintaining healthy skin.
