Skincare Trifecta Overview

Dr. Mitchel Goldman is getting a HydraFacial in San Diego, CA.The Skincare Trifecta aesthetic treatment is a proprietary combination face and neck treatment created by Cosmetic Laser Dermatology’s medical aesthetician, Farzaneh Momeni-Salami. With more than 30 years of experience in the aesthetics industry, Farzaneh uses the most innovative and effective treatments to produce superior results for her patients. The Skincare Trifecta packs a powerful punch to keep the skin healthy, radiant, and beautiful. 

Aesthetician treatments provide excellent options for improving your skin’s condition and appearance with procedures that address the skin’s needs on different levels. The combination approach that Farzaneh uses for her Skincare Trifecta includes all the basics of a comprehensive skincare regimen, including cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and targeted treatments to restore the skin’s youthful vitality.

The Aging Skin: What You Need to Know

The skin is the largest organ of the body, with three distinct layers:

    • Epidermis – Outer layer that acts as a barrier to protect the body from UV rays, chemicals, and pathogens
    • Dermis – Middle layer, which contains blood vessels, nerves, hair follicles, hyaluronic acid and oil glands to give the skin its natural plumpness, thickness, and elasticity
    • Hypodermis – Deeper subcutaneous layer that contains fat and connective tissue

The aging process significantly changes the epidermis and dermis, which in turn alters the outer appearance of the skin. In the epidermis, cells become thinner, flatter and more fragile. They do not hold moisture as well, leading to drier skin. Sebaceous gland activity slows down to further exacerbate skin dryness, and pigmentation increases, resulting in the appearance of brown spots.

In the dermis, the cells become disorganized due to UV damage, which also leads to dry, flaky skin and wrinkle formation. Skin begins to lose its luster, and exfoliation becomes more critical to remove the outer layers of skin cells because the skin becomes less efficient at shedding these cells without assistance. 

The Skincare Trifecta addresses all of these changes of aging skin, restoring a youthful glow to the skin and minimizing many aging symptoms to produce more even skin texture and tone.

What to Expect

The Skincare Trifecta is a combination approach that includes three treatments in a single session:

When Farzaneh performs these procedures together, they provide comprehensive skin rejuvenation and a myriad of benefits. This is the perfect treatment to prepare for a big event or to undergo regularly to maintain optimal skin health and beauty.


Dermaplaning is a type of exfoliation that uses a small blade to eliminate surface debris and peach fuzz from the skin. When performed by a qualified medical aesthetician like Farzaneh, dermaplaning offers the following benefits:

  • Increases absorption of topical products
  • Primes the skin for a chemical peel
  • Creates a healthier, more radiant appearance

Farzeneh performs dermaplaning before many of her aesthetic treatments to ensure all the procedures you undergo at our San Diego medical spa are as effective as possible. The procedure is very comfortable and takes about 15 minutes to complete.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel applies a solution to the skin to remove the outermost layer of dead, dry skin cells, allowing the next layer of skin to develop and replace the old layer. The result is tightened, radiant skin with reduced wrinkles. We offer two types of chemical peels:

  • Superficial chemical peels – do not penetrate below the epidermis
  • Medium chemical peels – penetrate below the epidermis to the top layer of the dermis

The depth of penetration depends on the type and strength of the solution and the amount of time the solution interacts with the skin.

Chemical peels may address the following concerns: 

  • Age spots
  • Superficial lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Rough skin

Farzaneh will choose the chemical peel that meets your concerns and goals best, as customization ensures the safest and most effective procedure.

HydraFacial MD

Farzaneh finishes off her Skincare Trifecta aesthetic treatment in San Diego with the popular HydraFacial MD, a treatment touted by many celebrities due to its ability to rejuvenate the complexion and minimize early signs of aging. The HydraFacial MD is a four-step treatment that may accomplish the following:
