Blemishes and acne scars are two of the most common facial skin problems endured by adults. During the teen years, acne is at its most prolific stage, and the damaged cells caused by pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads can become permanent. As we age, the new cell growth is just as damaged as when we were teenagers. The revolutionary new HydraFacial™ cleansing system can change all that. At Guelph Medical Laser Skin Centre, we perform this cleansing and exfoliating procedure on our patients who suffer from unsightly skin caused by damaged cells.
The HydraFacial™ Difference
HydraFacial™ exfoliating and cleansing is a multi-step procedure that involves not only the cleaning out of pores but also the introduction of nutrients that actually stimulate healthier cell growth. Those who suffer from acne as a teenager often have enlarged yet constricted pores that trap dirt and other pollutants. The result is damaged cells and a great deal of scarring.
Unlike general exfoliating products, the HydraFacial™ revitalizing system is effective at removing all dead skin cells while at the same time providing long-lasting nutrition to the dermal layers.
How the Treatment is Performed
First, a serum is applied to the face to remove the upper dermal layer. This exposes the healthy skin underneath. Second, a different serum is applied to peel away the upper layer of healthy skin. This actually promotes new cell growth. Pollutants from the exposed pores will be removed and your skin cleaned.
What the Patient Can Expect
Our patients experience a total cleansing and exfoliation. The added benefits of nutritional delivery means healthier skin growth. The lower dermal layers become far more elastic and are tighter than ever before. Any acne scarring virtually disappears.
Almost immediately, patients notice a firmer, clearer look to the skin. Because acne scarring occurs in the lower dermal layers, cleaning out the pores and introducing nutritional compounds allows the skin to heal naturally, with the pores themselves unable to trap nearly as many dirt particles as before. The acne scars become much less noticeable because the treated areas experience healthier cell growth.
The Science Behind HydraFacial™
HydraFacial™ works because the newly exposed dermal layers are far more accepting of nutrients. Whenever skin layers are peeled away, the body responds by sending blood laden with nutrients in an attempt to grow new tissue. When the specialized serums used in the HydraFacial™ treatment are introduced, this procedure is accelerated. When new skin growth occurs at this pace, the older, dead or damaged cells are quickly replaced.
