A HydraFacial® is an innovative, multi-step, patented treatment that combines advanced clinical technology with the feeling of a relaxing spa treatment to give you hydrated, replenished, softer skin instantly.
How a HydraFacial® Treatment Works
Every HydraFacial® treatment utilizes a set of HydroPeel tips that contain gentle yet abrasive edges. To start, the skin is thoroughly cleansed in order to exfoliate dead skin cells. Next, a mild acid is applied to loosen the debris from the pores, and a painless suction device is then used in order to gently extract and clean the pores of the skin. Finally, the skin is hydrated using a vortex-fusion system that works to deliver both hyaluronic acid and antioxidants into the deep tissues of the skin.
HydraFacial® is on the leading edge of today’s newest skin enhancing treatments. The primary treatments of a HydraFacial® treatment involve six key stages that help detoxify your skin, exfoliate layers of dead skin, extract debris, and promote long-term hydration to the skin along with essential nutrients that ultimately protect and help rebuild collagen.
How Long Does a HydraFacial® Treatment Take?
Typically, the average HydraFacial® treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete without feeling any pain. In fact, most patients find the process itself to be quite soothing and relaxing.
Types of Skin Issues that HydraFacial® Treats
Virtually any type of skin condition can benefit from a HydraFacial® treatment. Patients with clogged pores, aging or dry skin, or chronic acne will immediately notice a difference.
How Many HydraFacial® Treatments are Necessary to See Results?
HydraFacial® is administered in a series of multiple treatments for noticeable, long-lasting results. Because it’s so gentle, several individuals choose to have a treatment each month. However, for people with more resistant acne or enlarged pores, four treatments every week is recommended, followed by maintenance once a month. For those who desire immediate results, HydraFacial® also improves skin appearance after one session.
HydraFacial® Before and After Treatment
HydraFacial® treatments can be used on all skin types and colors, but it is more effective if you don’t have any sun and/or wind burn that may potentially make your skin more sensitive. Following the treatment, it’s recommended that you use a quality moisturizer every day as well as sunscreen if you plan to be outdoors for an extended amount of time.
Who is a Good Candidate for HydraFacial®?
Virtually anyone who wishes to improve the overall quality of his or her skin is a good candidate for a HydraFacial® treatment. Treatments can be customized in order to treat individual skin issues.
Combining HydraFacial® with Other Skin Treatments
In order to optimize results and effectiveness on the skin, HydraFacial® can also be used in conjunction with other skin treatments. These options can be discussed during your first visit.
