Facial Treatments in San Diego
Relax with a Facial
A facial is a non-invasive treatment that reinvigorates dull skin. Most patients even describe facials as a relaxing or calming experience. There are multiple components to a facial — cleansing, exfoliation, moisturizing — all of which are designed with the goal of pampering the skin and giving it a beautiful glow. There are no side effects or recovery downtime needed.
Dr. Dennis Bucko and the Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center aesthetician team are experienced in a range of facial treatments, each with a specific focus. Facials can be performed right before a big event, or as part of a regular skin care routine.
The hydrating facial is designed to nourish skin that is dry, dull, dehydrated or sensitive. Dead skin cells are gently exfoliated away in order to prep the skin; then, a combination of rich, hydrating products are applied to the skin. This delivers essential moisture to the skin. The result is supple, dewy and radiant looking skin.
The acne clearing facial treatment soothes inflammation, reduces blemishes and enhances the clarity of the skin. Steaming, deep cleansing, extraction and other elements are combined to unclog pores, kill bacteria, eliminate excess oils and promote healthy circulation. Special products with acne-fighting ingredients are carefully selected to manage and prevent future breakouts. Acne clearing facials are appropriate for cases of chronic, severe acne and the occasional hormonal breakout. A series of regular facials is typically recommended in combination with a daily at-home skin care regimen. Dr. Bucko can also prescribe additional prescription drugs, both topical and systemic for active acne treatment.
The antioxidant nourishing facial is great for infusing essential nutrients that are important for healthy skin function. The facial involves the application of gentle ingredients like vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to nourish, hydrate, plump and firm the skin. It is often recommended to individuals that have been overexposed to damaging elements of the environment.
The anti-aging facial is perfect for minimizing signs of aging, repairing damage and lifting/ firming the skin. Treatment includes heavy exfoliation to slough off dead, dull skin cells and debris, and the application of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents and hydrators for smooth, beautiful skin. After an anti-aging facial, the skin looks more youthful and vibrant.
Dr. Bucko and our team have excellent treatment option for younger clients (19 and younger). The teen facial includes basic skin care elements — cleansing, exfoliation, moisturizing — and additional components such as an antioxidant mask or extractions, if needed. Tips are provided for keeping blemishes at bay, and special products are recommended to use as part of an at-home skin care regimen. Teen facials are a great building block for a lifetime of healthy, radiant skin.
Professional extractions (they should never be performed at home!) are important for a radiant complexion. Extractions clear the pores, lesions, pustules and papules associated with acne. Soothing topical products minimize any irritation. The skin looks clearer almost immediately!
