Westlake Dermatology offers several types of facials that will leave your skin feeling refreshed and renewed. Our medical grade facials treat a variety of skin issues including acne, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and skin dullness or dryness. Professional facial treatments can also prevent or reverse several common signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. Let one of our licensed aestheticians help you determine which facial treatment is best suited for your needs.
What is a facial?
Facials are designed to improve the skin along the face, neck, and décolleté. Most facials consist of a multi-step process that cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin to help keep the skin looking and feeling its best. Facials can also help reverse signs of aging by smoothing fine lines or wrinkles, hydrating the skin, boosting collagen production, and removing old (dead) upper skin layers.
Medical grade facials are designed to treat targeted medical concerns such as acne or pigmentation. The formulations of medical facials are generally more powerful than a day spa treatment as they contain high levels of active ingredients. This enables them to yield longer-lasting and more dramatic results. Due to their strength, medical-grade facials need to be administered under the care of a licensed skin care professional.
Fire and Ice Facial
Fire and Ice is an intensive facial designed to rapidly and safely resurface the skin with a combination of active and soothing ingredients. The benefits of the treatment are similar to that of a subtle chemical peel – reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, cellular renewal, and smoother, tighter skin. With the aromas of warm cinnamon spice and cool peppermint, Fire and Ice combines two therapeutic masques: the powerful Intensive Resurfacing Masque which contains 18% glycolic acid and retinol, and the soothing Rejuvenating Masque that contains skin-plumping hyaluronic acid and soothing aloe vera. The Fire and Ice Facial is a top choice for celebrities who want to get their face “red carpet ready”.
Ideal for all skin types, this facial will remove the outermost layers of dead skin cells resulting in clearer and smoother skin with a radiant, healthy glow. Our Illuminating Facial includes deep pore cleansing, microdermabrasion, light extractions (if needed), and the application of a glycolic acid peel customized for your skin type. The Illuminating Facial is an ideal anti-aging facial treatment.
Ideal for teens and acne-prone skin types requiring heavy extractions, this facial deep cleans the pores leaving the skin refreshed and free of buildup. The Acne Facial includes exfoliation of the skin, heavy extractions, masque and application of products customized for your skin type and condition. When appropriate, a sugar acid is used to help open the pores and reduce cystic acne.
The HydraFacial MD treatment quickly removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. By combining cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, it is the newest advancement in non-laser skin resurfacing. Learn more about HydraFacials
