HydraFacial™ treatment offers men and women of all ages a new way to support healthy, beautiful skin. The concept involves hydradermabrasion, a technique of combined cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration that presses the reset button on the epidermis. A HydraFacial is not your average facial; it is a treatment that boosts the antioxidant protection within the uppermost layers of tissue without incurring any downtime.
What Is HydraFacial?
Hydradermabrasion is a gentle alternative to microdermabrasion, a process that exfoliates the skin using water that has been infused with vitamins and oxygen. The resurfacing tip on the treatment wand lifts dead skin cells off the surface and suctions them away along with other debris that may be clogging the epidermis.
What Does a HydraFacial Treat?
The HydraFacial is performed to boost the softness and resiliency of the skin. It can also reduce pore size, unclog blocked pores, reduce oiliness, and minimize the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines.
How Long Is a HydraFacial Treatment?
Each HydraFacial treatment can last from 25 minutes to 90 minutes. The duration of treatment depends on the inclusion of any add-ons a patient may choose to enhance the effects of their procedure.
Is a HydraFacial Painful?
HydraFacial is even more comfortable than the average microdermabrasion treatment. This is because the hydradermabrasion process uses infused water instead of microcrystals to gently abrade the skin. Patients describe the sensation as a “wet paintbrush” moving over their skin as dead cells are lifted and suctioned by vortex technology. If you choose to boost your skin with a HydraFacial, you can expect your treatment to be very comfortable.
Benefits of a HydraFacial
There are several benefits of HydraFacial treatment, the most prominent being better-looking skin. Patients appreciate the gentle approach of the hydradermabrasion technique because it allows them to attend to the deeper needs of their skin without having to take time out of their busy schedule. No side effects, no discomfort, no downtime. The gentleness of this procedure also makes it suitable for combination with other treatments that address the signs of aging.
HydraFacial treatment is appropriate for a wide range of skin tones and types, making it accessible for a broader range of people.
Am I a Good Candidate for a HydraFacial?
One of the benefits of the HydraFacial process is that it is gentle enough for all skin types and tones. Some say it is ideal for those with aging and sensitive skin because there are no harsh chemicals or abrasion techniques involved in the procedure.
During a HydraFacial, antioxidants and other vital nutrients are delivered into the dermis, making this treatment ideal for any person who wants to boost the youthfulness of their skin. It is especially advantageous for those whose skin is dehydrated and prone to redness.
How Long will my results last?
After one HydraFacial, the skin looks smoother and brighter for approximately one week. However, many patients do enjoy longer lasting results with a single treatment. Experts suggest that a good daily skin care routine and proper use of sunscreen are key to extending the results of a HydraFacial. Just like our vehicles and homes need upkeep, so does our skin.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Optimal results are obtained with a series of approximately 6 treatments followed by periodic maintenance visits. Every person’s skin is unique. The condition of the skin, including inflammation, acne, scarring, and the signs of aging, all contribute to the outcome of treatment. Before recommending a number of treatments, we conduct a thorough consultation and skin assessment to ensure the best outcome is achieved.
The benefits of a HydraFacial treatment can be seen immediately. With the true, living surface of the skin revealed, the face glows more radiantly. Pores are typically noticeably smaller right after treatment, and the skin looks plumper and feels softer. The hydrating effects of the facial soften fine lines and wrinkles, even mild nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth. With a series of treatments, patients can enjoy brightening effects that significantly minimize the appearance of sun spots and other pigment concerns.
