Holiday stress, harsh winter weather and overindulging in rich foods can be disastrous for your skin, leading to flakiness, oiliness, acne and an overall dull complexion.
The Hydrafacial system is a gentle and extremely effective treatment to solve your skin issues for the upcoming year, with no injections, surgeries or discomfort required.
How Does It Work?
Getting a Hydrafacial is a four-step process that promotes healthy, glowing skin.
First, an exfoliating tool is used to strip away dead skin and any flakes of makeup left on your face. While this may sound harsh, the process is very gentle.
The next step is an acid peel. While many other peels that use glycolic acid can be very harsh and cause a stinging sensation until it’s rinsed away, the acid peel used with the Hydrafacial system only produces a mild tingling sensation.
If you have sensitive skin, this may be effective for you.
After the peel, it’s time for extractions. The Hydrafacial system uses an extractor to suck oil, dirt, makeup and other impurities out of your pores. This is far less traumatic to the skin that a traditional extractor and can be beneficial for those with sensitive skin, too.
The final step is the application designed to hydrate and nourish your skin.
The application is rich in collagen and antioxidants, and it promotes elasticity and glowing health in your skin.
What Happens After Treatment?
Depending on your skin tone and how sensitive your skin is, your face may be a bit red for a few hours after your treatment.
You may want to wear sunscreen to ensure you don’t get burnt, as your skin will be fresh after treatment.
You’ll also want to keep an eye out for any signs of pigment changes or infections.
Who Shouldn’t Get a Hydrafacial?
Just about anyone of any age or ethnic group can enjoy the benefits of this treatment, but there are a few conditions that may disqualify you.
If you have an active skin infection, you should wait until the breakout has cleared to be treated.
If you have any issues with healing, such as a clotting disorder, this treatment may not be suitable for you.
The Hydrafacial system is a great option for making your skin look its best in the coming year.
