Anti Aging Facial
Sonya Dakar has created the perfect marriage of science and aesthetics to develop a truly effective anti-aging facial that turns back the clock and helps us stay young a little while longer.
As a result of this cutting edge anti-aging facial, Los Angeles men and women are staying young and beautiful. Clients often see immediate results after completing the treatment, including reduced visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, capillaries, redness, and age spots.
Regular anti-aging facials help combat intrinsic aging by increasing collagen production, helping your skin regain elasticity and by shedding dead skin cells.

How Does This Anti-Aging Facial Work?
Based on ground-breaking research from NASA, Sonya Dakar’s LED Light Therapy uses specific frequencies of light to help fight aging. NASA’s research showed that cells could actually convert light energy to support the growth of new cells and collagen development.
Because thermal heat is not required in this anti-aging facial, Los Angeles women can enjoy a highly effective treatment that is non-invasive, pain free, and requires no down time.
The Aging Process
Research shows that there are, in fact, two distinct types of aging.
1. Aging caused by the genes we inherit is called intrinsic (internal) aging.
2. The other type of aging is known as extrinsic (external) aging and is caused by environmental factors, such as exposure to the sun’s rays.
Get Started Early
The process of aging can begin as early as your late teens/early twenties, which means it’s never too early to start an anti-aging beauty regimen. The first step in this beauty regimen would be to schedule an anti-aging facial. In Los Angeles, we face sun exposure virtually year round. Regular anti-aging facials can help counteract the damaging effects of the sun and slow the natural aging process.
Q: How Can I Slow The Aging Process?
A: There are a number of things you can do to help slow the aging process.
- Stay out of the sun and wear sunblock spf 30 year round.
- Use an antiaging serum with retinol daily.
- Take the right nutritional multivitamin supplements that protect against environmental damage, thus slowing skin aging.
But, the cornerstone of a great routine is an anti-aging facial. Los Angeles skin specialist Sonya Dakar has perfected an anti- aging facial with proven results.
Q: What is intrinsic aging?
A: Intrinsic aging, also known as the natural aging process, is a continuous process that normally begins in our mid-20s. Within the skin, collagen production slows, and elastin, the substance that enables skin to snap back into place, has a bit less spring.
Dead skin cells do not shed as quickly and turnover of new skin cells may decrease slightly. While these changes usually begin in our 20s, the signs of intrinsic aging are typically not visible until many years later. The signs of intrinsic aging are:
- Fine wrinkles
- Thin and transparent skin
- Dry skin that may itch
- Bones shrink away from the skin due to bone loss, which causes sagging skin
- Loss of underlying fat, leading to hollowed cheeks and eye sockets as well as noticeable loss of firmness on the hands and neck
Q: What is extrinsic aging?
A: A number of extrinsic, or external, factors often act together with the normal aging process to prematurely age our skin. Most premature aging is caused by sun exposure. Other external factors that prematurely age our skin are repetitive facial expressions, gravity, sleeping positions, and smoking.
The Sun. Without protection from the sun’s rays, just a few minutes of exposure each day over the years can cause noticeable changes to the skin. Freckles, age spots, spider veins on the face, rough and leathery skin, fine wrinkles that disappear when stretched, loose skin, a blotchy complexion, actinic keratoses (thick wart-like, rough, reddish patches of skin), and skin cancer can all be traced to sun exposure.
“Photoaging” is the term we use to describe this type of aging caused by exposure to the sun’s rays. With repeated exposure to the sun, the skin loses the ability to repair itself, and the damage accumulates. Scientific studies have shown that repeated ultraviolet (UV) exposure breaks down collagen and impairs the synthesis of new collagen.
The sun also attacks our elastin. Sun-weakened skin ceases to spring back much earlier than skin protected from UV rays. Skin also becomes loose, wrinkled, and leathery much earlier with unprotected exposure to sunlight.
