Your image of a facial is someone wrapped in a plush robe with a drink in hand and a mask on their face. Although there may be some truth to this, the reality is that facials go far beyond an hour or two of self-pampering.
As the nearly 2.75 million Americans who reported getting regular facials in 2020 (at least four within six months) can attest, these visits help to keep your most important protective asset — your skin — healthy.
To give you an idea of all that Dr. Vicki Rapaport and the team here at Rapaport Dermatology of Beverly Hills can accomplish through regular facials, read on.
Staying one step ahead of aging skin
People who have great skincare regimens think of their efforts as proactive and preventive rather than reactive. For example, if you wait until blemishes and wrinkles begin to take up residence on your face before you take action, the road isn’t as easy as preventing them in the first place.
Through our facials, we clean out pores, clear away tired skin cells, and then deliver serums and creams that contain the nutrients your skin needs to keep regenerating itself with healthy layers of skin.
This ongoing care helps your skin to fight off the effects of aging and exposure before they take hold.
Demystifying skin care
Any internet search or walk down a skincare aisle can be confusing, to say the least. If, like millions of others, you’ve wasted precious time and money on skincare products that aren’t right for you, we can help.
We’re dermatologists and skincare experts, and we can cut through the clutter to provide your skin with the precise care it needs through regular facials. From determining your skin type to working with your lifestyle, we target your skincare to your exact needs — allowing you to get the skincare you need and nothing you don’t.
Tackling specific concerns
Through our facials, we can target specific concerns you might have. For example, about 50 million people in the United States struggle with acne each year, including adults. If you count yourself in this large group, routine facials can help combat this skin condition.
As another example, we live in sunny southern California, which means sun exposure is a concern. Through facial treatments like chemical peels, we can regularly strip away sun-damaged skin.
The bottom line is that regular facials can be ranked right up there with regular teeth cleanings. These preventive practices can help keep your skin in the pink of health and prevent larger problems from taking hold.
To see for yourself how a facial can bring out the best in your skin, we invite you to schedule an appointment at Rapaport Dermatology of Beverly Hills at one of our medspas in Beverly Hills and Culver City, California.
