Facials Q & A

What is a facial?

A facial is a beauty treatment aimed at enhancing the health and look of your skin. The beauty experts at Westwood Laser customize your facial to match your skin type and ultimate aesthetic goals.

What are the types of facials?

Westwood Laser is an innovative medical spa that offers some of the best beauty services available. The facials offered by the aesthetic team include:

Chemical peel

A chemical peel is an advanced facial that uses a special solution to improve the tone and texture of your skin. The aesthetic team at Westwood Laser can design a chemical peel that matches your specific skin care needs and goals. You may want to consider a chemical peel as an acne treatment or to reduce the appearance of your lines and wrinkles.

Chemical peels come in varying strengths to match your specific beauty needs.

Vampire facial

The vampire facial is a revolutionary treatment that improves the look and health of your skin by combining microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that tricks your skin into thinking it’s been injured, which induces collagen production to improve the strength and look of your skin.

Collagen is the protein that provides support and elasticity, and production of this vital protein decreases as you get older.

PRP is a blood product that contains a high concentration of the healing properties naturally found in your blood, including platelets, growth factors, and specialized protein.

When applied to your skin, the PRP accelerates the healing process created by the microneedling. Dr. Paikal and his team use your own blood to create the PRP used for your vampire facial.

The vampire facial is used to improve skin tone, reduce lines and wrinkles, and erase skin pigmentation, with the results potentially lasting a year or longer.

How often should I get a facial?

The frequency of your facials may depend on the type of facial you get. Some mild chemical peels can be repeated periodically, but stronger chemical peels are only recommended once. You may consider repeating your vampire facial when you start to notice a return of your lines and wrinkles.

Dr. Paikal and his team work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that helps you meet and maintain your beauty goals.
