Advanced Skin Care Treatments for Beauty and Health in Albuquerque

facials

Our skin is constantly subjected to wear and tear from the environment each day, including sun damage, temperature changes, dirt, toxins, and pollution. If we don't care for our skin, it can end up being dull, dry, and prone to breakouts. We might often think of skin care — such as facials at Albuquerque's Western Dermatology Consultants — as a "cosmetic thing," and not always consider them a necessary part of a complete health plan. These treatments are certainly enjoyable and a great way of pampering your skin. However, they're also beneficial for your health. Your skin is the largest organ of your body, and just like with all of your other organs, taking care of it now can protect it for the future and ultimately contribute to your ideal overall health.

Our clients come from Albuquerque and the surrounding areas. We see men and women of every age and walk of life, and love helping them achieve the skin and body they've always dreamed of via facials and more.

How Do Facials Work?

Skin toning via facials and other treatments is one aspect of managing and maintaining your skin by recharging your complexion from the inside out and ridding the skin of impurities.

Facials involve a series of skin treatments that typically include steaming, extraction, masks, massages, and exfoliation with peels to remove dead skin. They range from basic to extensive, depending on the type of treatment used. Our experienced professionals have the tools and expertise to thoroughly cleanse the skin while extracting blackheads and more manually or with special devices. They provide a mask that is compatible with your skin type, while also massaging and moisturizing your skin.

At our Medical Spa, you'll receive gentle and effective treatment for everything from acne to wrinkles, and walk away with skin that feels renewed, refreshed, and youthful. Maybe you'll even find yourself stepping a little lighter and smiling a little broader. In addition to improving your skin, facials can be one of the most relaxing experiences for patients and may help them to de-stress. These sessions usually only cause minimal discomfort.

There are several options, including standard facials (which include cleansing, a face mask, manual extractions, and a massage) and HydraFacials® (which consist of cleansing, suctioning of the pores, exfoliation, and infusion with nourishing ingredients). Standard treatments may also be combined with chemical peels and microdermabrasion.

What Can Facials Treat?

Facials improve the appearance of common skin issues such as acne scars, visible signs of sun damage, clogged pores, non-inflammatory acne, dull skin, lines, and wrinkles. They can also restore a brighter, more youthful appearance by removing dead skin.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Facials?

Facials aren't just for women. Men can benefit from them as well! Most patients who want to enhance the appearance of their skin, who are preparing for a special occasion, or who hope to improve certain conditions will be good candidates for these treatments. The best procedure for you depends on your skin type, the types of imperfections you hope to treat, and any other skin conditions or allergies you have.

What Are Some Alternatives to Facials?

The process of toning includes firming and tightening your skin so that it not only looks better, but also feels better and is less prone to infection and chafing. The board-certified dermatologists at Western Dermatology Consultants, along with an experienced staff of physician assistants, nurses, and aestheticians, provide skin rejuvenation treatments like facials and chemical peels, as well as cosmetic dermatology options like Thermage® and Juvéderm® for smoothing, tightening, and plumping, and BOTOX® for reducing expression wrinkles.
