Facials Q & A
What are facials?
Facials are skin care treatments that typically involve more than one step and are customizable according to what your skin needs most. Following an initial consultation and dermatological evaluation, Daphne Panagotacos, M.D., Inc., reviews your facial options and helps you choose one or more to brighten and clear your skin.
Depending on your choice for a facial, procedures in this category can cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize your face. Daphne Panagotacos, M.D., Inc. gives you instructions for aftercare after even the gentlest facial so you can maintain your results with the right upkeep.
What are my options for facials?
Daphne Panagotacos, M.D., Inc., offers facials that range from gentle and relaxing, to intense and rejuvenating. Options include strong chemical peels as well as more traditional facials. Sara Thomas, Licensed Aesthetician offers:
Acne facials use light steam to soften your pores in preparation for professional extractions. After your extractions, your provider applies dry ice on your skin to soothe and calm it.
European facials are relaxing and beneficial to your skin, and you should schedule them regularly. Your skin care specialist cleanses and exfoliates your skin using carefully selected products that meet your skin’s needs; then, they massage the skin on your face and neck before applying masks and moisturizers.
You can also add microdermabrasion or hydro infusions to your European facials.
HydraFacial is a three-step facial process that exfoliates, extracts, and moisturizes your skin. The patented device uses gentle suction while infusing serums into your skin to improve fine lines, sun spots, and dullness.
Our practice offers high-quality VI peels, a family of products including peels to stimulate collagen production, decrease acne, reduce pore size, and reach many other goals.
When should I get a facial?
Even if you don’t do them often, professional facials can achieve much more than a typical home skin care routine for skin health. Your dermatologist might suggest getting a specific facial, like an acne facial, as a treatment for a skin condition that affects you.
If you don’t have any skin conditions or other cosmetic skin concerns like spots or discoloration, you can choose a gentle facial like the European facial or HydraFacial as an opportunity for skin renewal and stress relief all in one.
Facials like these are refreshing experiences that result in a radiant glow for skin of any tone or sensitivity.
