If you’re looking for a facial that can diminish the appearance of acne scars, you have a long list of options to choose from. One of the best options available for acne treatment is the HydraFacial. It’s a very popular treatment and has several cosmetic benefits to offer. It can be especially helpful for individuals who have acne scars and can work for all types of skin.
This acne treatment targets hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines and congested pores. It shouldn’t take longer than 30 minutes and has the potential to significantly reduce the appearance of acne scars.
How the HydraFacial Treatment Works
The treatment consists of several different steps. The first part of the process consists of exfoliating and cleansing your skin. A small deplaning instrument is used to open up the pores on your face, remove dead skin cells and sweep away debris left behind by makeup. The experience feels a lot like having your face gently massaged by an electric toothbrush.
The second part of the HydraFacial is the acid peel. There are several types of glycolic peels that can cause your skin to sting, but the peel used for a HydraFacial doesn’t cause this problem. The glycolic acid peel is very gentle and shouldn’t cause your skin to sting.
After the acid peel, the next step consists of extractions. During this phase of the acne treatment, you’ll be able to see what has been hiding inside of your pores. A vortex-extraction nozzle is used to perform the extractions, and it’s a device that is very similar to a vacuum.
The final step of the process consists of serum application. The vortex-fusion tool is used to infuse your skin with antioxidants and collagen. The serum is important because it promotes hydration and elasticity.
The HydraFacial for Acne Treatment
Although it’s common among teenagers, acne doesn’t discriminate based on age. Many adults have severe acne, and as a result, suffer with reduced self-confidence and acne scars. The HydraFacial can be extremely effective for treating acne scars as well as oily skin, which is a major cause of acne breakouts.
The treatment consists of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction and hydration. Once all of these steps are completed, hyaluronic acid, peptides and antioxidants are applied to your skin.
The HydraFacial treatment uses HydroPeel tips, and they have several peeling edges, which are very effective at exfoliating the skin. In fact, a single pass with the tips can exfoliate your skin several times. The tips provide uniform results. The treatment uses a vortex effect, so it’s able to quickly dislodge impurities.
