Deep Dermatological Cleansing

Βαθύς Δερματολογικός Καθαρισμός

Deep Dermatological Cleansing at the clinic facilitates the rejuvenation of skin cells and the oxygenation of skin, while helping it respond to the treatments it needs.

The deep facial dermatological cleansing is a particularly beneficial treatment to nourish the face and treat conditions such as acne.

The cleansing removes all dead cells from the surface, thus supporting the cycle of skin renewal which is decelerated by many factors (e.g. accumulation of dead cells, pollution etc.). Moreover, the deep cleansing helps regulate oily skin.

The result is impressive, as your skin will be bright, clean, without spots, blackheads and sebum.


Why have a Deep Dermatological Cleansing?

A dermatological cleansing effected at the clinic is different from the procedure at home.

The facial cleansing by a dermatologist is effected at a greater depth owing to the special equipment available, which is used to make a safe and atraumatic extraction of sebum and open and closed comedones.

Moreover, the doctor uses appropriate products depending on the type and needs of the skin.

The main aims of a deep dermatological cleansing are the following:

  • Healthy, bright skin
  • Skin free of blackheads and white spots
  • Removal of dead cells from the skin’s surface
  • Hydration of the face
  • Skin smoothness
  • Removal of sebum, pustules (pimples), whiteheads
  • Treatment of oily and shiny skin

The process of Deep Dermatological Cleansing

At first, the face remains in an ozone steamer for a few minutes (time depends on skin type) for the purpose of opening skin pores. The heat helps unclog them without pain and acts as a sort of “detoxification”.

The dermatologist will then proceed to an atraumatic process involving:

  • Pore opening
  • Exfoliation
  • Removal of sebum and comedones (notably black and white heads) 
  • Skin care.

It has also a therapeutic effect on active inflammatory acne with immediate and fast results.

Throughout the cleansing, the dermatologist uses antiseptic products topically on the skin.

The process is completed with a soothing mask or an active carbon mask, or with special antiaging serums.

After the cleansing you should follow the dermatologist’s instructions, avoid touching the face and using make-up on the same day, and apply sunscreen.

A deep facial cleansing can be easily combined with other treatments such as a peel or a hydration treatment.

The combination of treatments will be recommended by the dermatologist based on the individual’s needs.


Is a Deep Dermatological Cleansing suitable for me? (suitable candidates)

The deep cleansing is suitable for all ages and all skin types.

Of course, the frequency of the treatment and the products to be used are decided by the skin type.

The dermatologist will determine whether a deep cleansing with steam or a HydraFacial (liquid microdermabrasion) cleansing is necessary.

HydraFacial is a beneficial process for acne skin, mixed skin, and as a preparation for antiaging treatments using peels.


What are the results of a Deep Dermatological Cleansing?

The dermatological cleansing treatment is a powerful weapon against acne and, when combined with medical treatment, gives results from the first session.

The treatment helps the skin breathe and function normally, which enables the medical treatment to produce maximum results and prevent the advancement or worsening of acne.

Actually, in the case of acne, the deep cleansing can be combined with a clay or active carbon mask, a peel, phototherapy or photodynamic therapy.


How often should I have a Deep Dermatological Cleansing?

The dermatologist will examine your skin and, depending on its needs and on whether it is healthy or has an issue, will determine the frequency.

Please keep in mind that frequency is something that changes over the years, as our skin’s needs vary, acne for example may disappear or become worse.

When we treat active acne at first, cleansing is required almost every month. When on a maintenance phase, three times per year and certainly after summer holidays.
