The Science Behind Facials and Why You Should Get Them More Often

Your skin deserves all the care and attention you can give it. After all, your skin is your body’s largest organ, as well as being one of the first things about you that other people see. So, it only makes sense to learn more about the science of skin care, including the benefits of facials.

Dr. Karin Harp, MD, FAAD, FASDS, Dr. Aria Vazirnia MD, MAS, FAAD, Kristin Rupert PA-C, Mary Hanna MSN, NP-BC, Riley McCarthy RN, Lani Keene LE, and the Apex Dermatology team want you to know more about all of the upsides of regular facial treatments for your skin.

At Apex Dermatology, we provide a range of specialized facial treatments from our location in Westlake Village, California. All of our facials use state-of-the-art skin care science to cleanse, exfoliate, stimulate, and moisturize your skin.

Let’s talk about the details of the science behind facial treatments, and how the right facials provide essential support for your body’s largest, and most visible, organ.

The science of facials

Today’s scientific breakthroughs mean that we know a lot about your skin, from the surface to the deeper layers. And, we know how to provide skin care that really works.

There are a lot of active ingredients, from copper peptides to lactic acid, that provide various effects for your skin. Keeping track of the science, and figuring out exactly the right combination of skin care treatments for you, gets pretty complicated!

That’s where the skin care, aesthetics, and anti-aging experts at Apex Dermatology come into the picture. We can recommend the right products and procedures to keep your skin looking and feeling great, from the outside in. And, repeat treatments only enhance the benefits of our facials.

Treatment for your skin’s surface and deeper layers

Your skin is made up of many layers, meaning that skin care needs to take both the skin’s surface and what’s beneath it into account.

The skin on your face regularly gets exposed to sun, wind, chemicals, and other stressors. Facials aim to reverse the damage that your facial skin takes when you’re out and about, showing your best face to the world. Acid peels, steaming treatments, and advanced extraction techniques provide effective skin improvement.

In addition to addressing and clearing away debris and surface damage from the outer layers of your skin, our facial offerings at Apex Dermatology also improve the condition of the deeper layers of your skin through scientifically-perfected moisturization techniques.

When you get regular treatment, your skin stays in good condition, suffering less visible wear-and-tear.

The right facial procedures for you

Skin care isn’t one-size-fits-all. Each person’s skin needs different treatment, depending on factors like your age, skin type, and specific stressors. Older skin with lots of sun damage requires different support than young skin struggling with acne and excess oils!

Facial skin care treatments specifically address the unique needs of your facial skin. Depending on your skin type and aesthetic concerns, we may recommend facial treatments such as:

You can also fully indulge your skin from time to time with the Deluxe Facial, combining a lactic peel with steam, extractions, lip and eye treatments, and massage of face, neck, and decolletage.
